Thank you for following along and the encouraging words. I'm gluing the first walls together for the Brick Roundhouse, today. I'll take a few pictures.

Here is a picture of the boat model that Wayne just completed. These boats are going to look so nice in the harbor. I can't wait to get to that area.

John,
 The boats that Wayne built, are they all from Sea Port Model Works or other companies ?

Most of the boats are from Sea Port Model Works,  I have also purchased a few from Model Tech and Blue Jacket that are on Wayne's build list. I believe all of them that are pictured in the last couple of pages are from Sea Port - but I could be wrong. If you see one that you question, let me know and I will dig into it.

John,
All the boats look wonderful and will really make a great harbor scene.

Update: The brick roundhouse is coming along, I have spent the last couple of weeks painting/coloring and weathering the castings for the walls. Here is a picture of one of my workbenches with finished and semifinished wall castings.

As you can see from my glass plate, I'm using three different shades of grey pastel chalk for the stone foundation of the walls. I add alcohol and use the pastels like a paint.  I'm painting individual random stones with the different shades. I started by painting the stones with a grey acrylic primer.

In the bottom right corner of the picture above I have a casting that has had the pan pastel added over the brick and stone area of the wall casting. I then use a gum eraser to remove the pan pastel from the surface of the brick leaving the material in the mortar joints.

You can achieve many different looks to the wall by how much you remove with the eraser. If I over do it in an area I just reapply and start the process over again. I will touch up the walls once the roundhouse is assembled, but you can get a basic idea of the look from the pictures.
