Fiddlers Green Oyster Shack

I should have backed up the boardwalk with thicker card or cardboard to remove the wave so noticeable in these photos; same with the base.

Oyster Shack 3 3/4 inches high. 10 inches long, 7 3/8 inches wide.

Splendid build and model.

I knaow it is not intentional but the wavy base looks great. So use it.

Glue it onto a firmer base, leaving the waves. Then fill the wavy sides - perhaps with a two pack glue or something similar so it "holds" any future bending. Edge with strips of card and paint edges matt black.

And there you have it!

I had a similar problem when I built the oyster shack some years ago. I ended up using pop cycle sticks underneath. They did not show, but they helped some. Still, the boards weren't straight, and I decided I looked the rough look. Years of salt water will do that. I ended up giving it to a friend who was building a train layout for his kid, and they loved it.

Yes Garland - in terms of the warped deck etc - that looks 100% correct.

I was just looking at the seabase - the boards I saw was warped and I thought that you had done that on purpose. But I skimmed your post too fast and I now saw you were referring to actual boards.

They are great - leave them.

The late great John Allen went to considerable effort to produce that effect.

I think it looks great. In this case the floppy wavy paper actually adds to the look of the model. Nicely done.
