Thanks very much Curt, Tom, Jeff and Greg. Jan I do not know when we will meet again but I hope it is sooner rather than later.
Here are some details I have been working on today.
Cheers everyone!

Thanks for your support Curt and Karl.
Continuing.......I add the outside frame for the storage shed plus a pile of wood made from the off cuts of the kit.

Continuing.........the kit includes self adhesive aluminium foil tape and a plastic corrugator tool to make corrugated roof panels. You basically cut the tape to size and then rub back and forth to press the corrugations in. I will leave that to next time!
I had in my stash some Campbells panels that I had already etched with ferric chloride. So...........here are the pictures.

The corrugated roofing on the overhang looks incredible! I also really like like the way you did your walls.

Mike great job on the boats.


And the roofing is very natural looking with the right amount of rusting.

Thank you Steven, Curt and Jerry for your very kind comments.
Continuing.............I cut the wharf piles and stained them with A&I before attaching them to the beams on the underside of the boatworks.
