I'm looking forward to that stage! 

Aren't we all!  :)

Great stuff - thanks for the pics despite the wobble, caused no doubt by a big wave. Here's a little one  :wave:

Another wee update...

Been working on the seafront and beach area.
First put in some retaining walls to mark where the esplanade is.



Then added some thin polystyrene formers (from pizza bases packaging) and some plaster rocks.









I've made steps and part of a ramp for access to the beach too.
Needed to reposition some rocks to fit them in. Heavy modelling!  :doh:





The tramcar and piece of Linka are helping to keep everything square and upright, they're not staying there!



Then out came the clay!



Yes, time to get messy. Or as I call it, 'fun time'!  :laugh:





The clay on top of the rocks is to give me an upper hard standing area.
Sort of thing that only spring tides or winter storms may reach.



I plan to put some beach huts on here against the wall.



Access improved now that the steps meet the beach properly.



There's now a surface on the ramp.
May need to fill in some cracks later as the clays still wet in the photo.



Still need to add clay over the black pizza base beach area and then its wave sculpting time!
More clay in other words...  :laugh:

 :thankyousign: everyone.
Not started on the beach/waves yet, thought I'd give the rest some drying out time first.
Won't be long though so stay tuned...  :wave:

Can't believe it's been nearly a month! Still, good progress takes time.

Didn't take pics any before I started painting everything as all you'd see would have been terra-cotta clay!  :laugh:



The beach is very experimental. Its Woodland Scenics snow that I dyed yellow.
Yes, yellow snow! (I know, family forum... :angel:)

A wash of dark blue/turquoise was put over the blue sea then and allowed to dry.
Some of it seeped into the beach edge so I'll need to re-do the sand here.
Yes, I have model beach pollution!   :smiley-laughing:

Then it was picking out the waves and surf/foam.



Before finally painting the pier structure with Revell 'Granite Grey'.



Then gave the sea a coat of gloss glaze.
By just using one coat it seems to soak in a little and give more of a satin sheen which I think looks better.
Certainly brings out the depth!
Rocks, lower esplanade and walls to finish. Then I can add the decking!  :claphappy:

The waves you have created are very good moogle and the waves breaking around the pier legs are also very good.  It is coming along well, looking forward to seeing the decking down  :thumbsup:

cheers John.

Hi Moogle,

Nice work, well done.  :thumbsup: I also like the way the waves break around the pier legs, very effective.

Having just caught up with this thread I think I have the beginnings of becoming a trolley head!

There is some very nice work going on here Moogles, you've got me hooked!  :thumbsup:

If you want seagulls all you have to do is open a fish & chip shop! Those flying rats will appear out of no where!  >:( Well at least they do in Mevagissey etc., here in Cornwall.

Excellent work - you can almost hear the waves breaking against the beach!  :D
