  1. At the beginning of this thread, let me issue a warning, I may not finish. I've never done any scenic work at all so this whole thread is an experiment and my experiments go wrong more often than they go right. Still, I've been watching a lot of Youtube videos and I've decided to have a go, time will tell. The subject of the diorama is an Admiral's barge I build ~ 9 years ago in a temporary workshop while building the house we live in. When I finished it, I could not make up my mind how to display it and so it has languished in the new workshop getting buried in dust and damaged since them, accidents happen! The model is OK, but needs quite a bit of cleaning up to improve the finish. Its sitting in a box I made that is supposed to show it in a waterline setting, really a bit rough all round. It was built based on these lines, I had a more complete drawing but it seems to have walked off in the intervening years This is what it looks like now It almost has an antique look about it, that brass need a good polish... My original plan was to mount it floating against a quayside but then I found this painting on line And I couldn't resist it, just look at that slipway trolley with all those I beams, lots of interesting brass work possibilities! But a slipway is still a bit simple, so I'm going to put a boat shed behind it and build out a bit of the boatyard. In the boat shed, I'm going to have a 16ft clinker boat under construction and I may add a dinghy tied up in the river next to the slip, Time will tell I started yesterday by drawing a kingpost truss boat shed and as you can see, the construction has come along fairly fast There will be a small office at the end, it will have an open side and end and be roofed in corrugated iron (O gauge) It looks a little low as the frame wall plate will sit on a dwarf wall of bricks (1:48th scale individual bricks, I can't wait...) and be clad in feather boarding The legs at the front are not too short, they will sit on stones. So, excuse me for posting a small framed building on a boat thread, the boat is still the main event, but I have a lot of ideas about adding detail to the boatyard the possibilities are (almost) endless
