Built it today, whatcha think? Besides more people & boats, how can I make this scene better?
That looks great. Now just add a small dock and 2 or 3 rowboats and you will be all set for business
Great scene csx!!
I really like the detail in the bank, & the water looks super!
My only suggestion...if it's not too late, since you've already done the water...would be to add a dock...maybe one of those that float on 55gal. drums...? But it also looks great as is!
Yes. I think a dock would be just the thing. You could add one or two boat houses as well. People would store there boat at a marina. Mabie a repair shop for outboard motors with a used boat and motor sales area. There could be a boat ramp for car and trailer access as well. Perhaps a baotway, you know, 2 rails up the bank that a boat is dragged up. There would be a gass pump on the dock too. There could be part of the dock for people who live abord there boats, this would be a small community in itself, with odd crafts and sail boats, even a house boat.
I'm from the west coast and spent many summers around marinas. I hope this gives you some ideas.
Charlie, I know where he can find a 55 gallon drum............
CSX, If the marina is on a river, you'd need mostly bass boats, or runabouts, inboard,or outboard. If on a lake, or there's a lake close by, just down the river, you could add some small sailboats.
You would need a dock, and some slips for the boats, and a gas pump, and a place to buy live bait, and a place to get food, or snacks, and beer............and a place to haul out the boats and scrub off the zebra mussles, and a place to pump out the holding tanks, and a launch ramp.......whoa!, 55 gallons! Tyson, this is all your fault....hic,,,,dfuhefbjcejfzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Too much of a good thing Mike????? CSX that's looking real good!
That is some excellent wet looking water! I think Trainclown listed most of the details I could think of. Lookin' good!
Excellent work...Trainclown missed one thing in his list though...two drunken boneheads on jet-skis getting tagged by the Marine Police. Sorry, see that alot here in Foridia, I'll shut up
My local hobby store sells a couple of bikini clad chicks tanning in lounge chairs. They would seem appropriate on the end of a dock or a floating platform.
that looks pretty good csx
...a couple of folks fishing along the banks and in the water?
There is a place just like this in Oakland, NJ (same colors even) and the NYS&W crossed the Ramapo River a 1/4 mile below. There was the trailer of canoes for rentals. They also sold fishing gear (a "Live Bait" sign).
What about the old tire swing hanging off a tree over the water and the ducks/geese or deer?
One thing seems a "must" is the boat ramp for getting the boats in and out of the water and the dock (especially the one with the bikini babes!!!).
THANKS FOR INPUT!
Great ideas, I'll post picture in a few weeks with the additions.
