Hi John,

The fish that the fisherman is holding is a Preiser figure.  The fish on the cleaning station are a casting from Model Tech Studios.

Hey Gary, Thanks very much for the comment. 

Slim, you can do what I did, and buy it on the after market like I did a couple of years ago.  The kit was still in its shrink wrap and never opened when I purchased it. You got all those people who like to purchase these kits when they come out, but never build them.

I have The Shipyard and the Foss Landing kits but not Shelby's Marine service. I like how Shelby's is open at the ground floor. I might do the "unthinkable"  :o and open up (modify) the shipyard building like the way Shelby's Marine is. I'll have to take some good looks at your build and make some notes.

Slim,

Are you coming to the narrow gauge convention?  I have it with me.  It will be in the  contest.

Unfortunately no Steve. Wish I was going. I like the NNGC's and this year's location - but the schedule just wouldn't allow!

Steve,
 Do you remember what the cost was for this kit? I just got one on "The Crazies" shopping site, and have no reference to its original price.
Thanks,
Loren...
