That is a fantastic little dio Harry! Even more impressive for the scale!

Now, here is a great dock setting. This photo was sent to me by David, who is worked my 1/700 ATF Tug into this very well done diorama.

Looking pretty good for the scale Harry! Those will make a fine addition to a dockside dio!

Well got all the new small crates in RTV except I forgot this one.
I think am getting too old for this.

Hallo Jan,

I have not been working on models much either, too many other things going on.

I am making progress on the YO and 8 new crates for the 1/350 dock.

Harry,

that's a very cool project, I'm in!

I've become a very infrequent commenter lately, busy with a lot of things, but that does not mean that I'm not at least checking in regularly

Cheers,
Jan

Making eight (8) new crates for the dock too go along with the large crates I already have.

It may look like not much done, but several hours of sanding to the right size and squaring up.

Also, the correct lean on the stack.

Hi Dave,

Thanks

Here is a great reference photo of YO-32.

Now for the shameful plug.

The YO-32 will be available as a kit from my website late August.

Harry,

The layout looks pretty cool. I have never done a scratch build but seeing yours gives me the desire to build a fleet oiler. Not sure of the difficulty with that yet but starting the research.

Oops, sorry wrong stack photo.
This one is for the new 1/350 YTM 100' Tug.

New photo as soon as I find my memory card.
