  • Harbours

    With the arrival of the Dry dock and some more buildings plus ships and impedimenta from Langtons the Dockyard module was now ready for construction.




    Firstly, I cut out the base from plastic sheet.





    Next I sculpted the contours from insulating foam.




    Then I completed the basic shaping and glued up the two parts securing them with Duct Tape..


    The following morning I unwrapped the glued up base.



    and cut out the detail for the top of the hill.




    Then glued and cramped it all together.



    Once dry overnight I gave it a coat of PVA to seal the surfaces and harden them overall .

    Whilst that was drying Iused the time to paint the accessories.




    Now that the Glue is dry, I have undercoated the whole piece and then added grass scatter whilst it was still wet. This will later be varnished over.

    Cliff faces are also painted lighter.



    Next I started to paint the Dock Yard and detailed some more of the base.

    With that completed I began to add the town at the top of the hill.





    Here is the Dockyard just about finished and ready to go to the shop for a top coat of varnish.


    Lastly I introduced the Dockyard into the harbour module .
    Just a bit of refining to make it blend in better at the edges now needed.
