Thank you all for your kind words and encouragement. Bradford, you are correct on both counts.

I have attached a few photos of the yacht for the next diorama. It is not quite finished. I have to build the railings/lifelines. I tried, for the first time, to make windows from glue. The windows in the large forward deck cabin and the pilot house did not turn out very well. The after cabin windows are a bit better, but I still need more practice. I changed the dinghy a bit to add more detail. The model had a flat picture of the interior of the dinghy; I built it in 3D and added a couple of paddles and oar locks.

You will notice that the boat has an odd forward pennant and the name has changed. My Granddaughter was inducted into the Tri-Sigma Sorority at Marshall U. The pennant is their emblem and the name on the yacht is their motto. I thought that she would like some bragging rights.

If you try this model, you will need to do a bit of shaving and tapering of the internal hull structure to get a correct fit for the lower hull. I also found the forward deck house cover structure on the weak side, so I beefed up the forward station to give it more rigidity. It really is a fun model to build.

I have started on the wooden pier, but it is not far enough along to provide pictures.

Until next,

Once again, thanks for the encouragement and advice. I looked at several kits available, but did not see any that were exactly what I was looking for. I decided to find out how to build a real one. I found a great publication that gave a complete description of everything including bracing, piles, pile caps, decking, stringers, hardwood mooring cleats and fenders. So, I decided to build my own. I have included a couple of pictures of the decking and one of the piles with cap. The decking should be 2x6; mine are more like 2x10 ( I wanted to make the detail a little easier to see). I used a strip of 110 pound paper to keep the spacing between deck planks. I used silver paper to make the pile caps to simulate anodized aluminum. (I found that caps are used to keep sea birds from rotting the piles). I have not assembled any pile sets yet, with bracing. I think I will use what is called a knee brace. It looks neater than a clunky X brace. Until next,

Very nicely done! May I ask if the trees are included in the kit or did you scratch-build them?
