The work on the track has been quiet for a while, but the upcoming "Vintage 32 Day" is again mobilizing my creative power, because I always want to show the race participants something new. And coincidences also always play a role. But one after anonther: The harbor basin was so far the only remaining undeveloped "landscape part" to be made. So I have measured, sawed and timbered the substructure.
To cover the quay wall, I have again printed out the structures of the Scalescenes assortment I had already used in the other parts of the harbor decoration. I then dyed the surface of the water with acrylics and tinted it in different shades (brown, green, black) so that it looks like "harbor broth". Now the bollards are installed and the ships and boats, that Ihave made so far are placed on a trial basis. It still lacks the big cargo ship. When this is built and has found its place in the harbor, I will make the water surface with clear silicone.
Further details to be built are: ladders leading from the quay into the harbor, sitting / floating seagulls and various labels. But I think, even now it looks quite closed.
Chance came to my aid then in the last part of the landscape to be built. I have seen a lighthouse to scare the local garden gnomes. And then I remembered that there is the famous lighthouse "La Corbière" on Jersey:
