Thanks very much Jerry, it is much appreciated.
Continuing..............I have applied a beam above the doors to hide the holes in the wall. The sign, floating dock, cradle and a boat have been added.

Continuing.............
A lot of patience was required for these little suckers. I found PVA warped the thin platforms so I used superglue in the end.

Hello Mike, I agree with Bob, great work. My rural Ohio layout doesn't have any waterfront areas, but I sure have enjoyed watching you build this kit.   Jeff

Mike,

Great job on the floating dock. Nicely done also on the diorama for the structure.

She's really coming along quite nicely Mike!   :)  What an interesting/intricate structure.  You're doing a great job with it.

Thanks Tom, Curt and Bob for your nice comments. It is not really me just a challenging kit. Here are a few pictures of the slipway, gantry and the other cruiser which I have moored to the side. Still a lot of work to come................

Final pictures of the diorama.
My verdict: This was a challenging kit but is very much value for money.
Niggles: the trimming of the battens on the walls to place the window frames was a pain and was the thinning of the rafter rails. There are a fewtypos in the instructions and some parts are wrongly labelled on the parts sheet. I found I did not have enough plastic C channel material and had to
fudge the slipway.
Plus points: This is a great kit. The detailing extras kit is well worth the money for the interior details. It included a Model T Ford kit but sadly that defeated me.I plan to light the building with the included LED's when I finally place the diorama on a layout thus I have left the roofs removable.  The kit includes too many palletsfor this diorama and I have enough for many other models. Ditto scale wood as I am left with stacks of it for other projects.
