    zdrada,
    Nice details, the building is looking great!
    Did the plates come from Gold Metal? What type of parts are they, ship blocks?
    Thanks,
    Scott

    Scott,
    Metal discs are screw heads for plastic modellers (tanks and military equipment). I used ABER product:
    https://www.mojehobby.pl/products/Glowki-srub.html
    I do not have information about US availability but there should be some alternatives from other producers.

    You never cease to amaze! Very nice work; this is realism expected in N, but you're doing it in Z!

    I think signage makes a big difference. This is coming along great. Good work and innovation. Jim

    Pawel,
    Very, very nice! Thanks for the links to some of the products.
    Like the cobble stones around the rails.

    As a side effect of buying some Marklin wagons I got three oldtimers. They were repainted and got signs of one of the companies present in the harbour. Window glazing was added as well.

    I got Artitect kit with tug and platform from @John Bartolotto (Thank you again). It is time to work on this model. I will start from floating platform. I have found such a photo:

    cnSc4T8Rgh7n4eGkDn0a_ar16x9.jpg

    I decided to use the platform just as a starting point with this photo as a inspiration. I plan not only to add wooden deck and small building but hopefully I will try to recreate this preparation for underwater activity scene .... Starting point is to paint the platform. I also found small photoetched weight-house building to be used as a on board shed.

    They make very good resin kits. I haven't seen that barge before. Jim

    Pawel,
    Looking good. Cool photo. Like the bollards and timbers.
    I'm building a 1928 deck scow from scratch.

    Next step is to add a deck and crane construction. Originally Artitect provided plastic profile for this but I replaced them with Vietnamese toothpicks made of bamboo (I got some from fellow modeller after his vacations in Asia).

    Guitar string was used to make crane rope:

    Supporting ropes for crane were added:

    Pawel,
    Nice! Why the preference for bamboo tooth picks?
