Thanks guys.
The kramers and I have a few more builds to do yet for the Docklands, before the next high tide/tsunami. (or however the waters will come)
Then...... let the floods begin.

We have started another Bar Mills Kit  "Moonys Plumbing" so I will post progress pics of the "warts and all" mishaps  P[: and misfortunes  \_#) as we go. 


Simon my good man, it's nice to see you back. I may have missed some of your recent posts maybe, but its cool your back anyway. Hope all is OK, and your move  into the new house / new area was not too much of an upheaval, and your Better Half's new job is a doddle.  :up:

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

Down at the Docks, global cooling has taken over and the new ice age has lowered the tides by the looks.




Although the climate seems to be getting hotter over on top of the lighthouse

Interesting shadow display over the water one would think.... ;D

Thought I would give a pictoral update here on what has happened at PistonBroke central over the past few months. (Well it's been nearly a year actually)

I see those Kramers have added a building to add to the main St.


Those workmen want to go around the corner and fix this bit of road..


 We alo have a new Butchers chop shop...
Everyone goes to four fingered Tonys for all their joints


 He sells a bit of everything does our Tony..
You want it He'll get it, Wink Wink, Nudge Nudge.


I need to take a pic of the main St. again, seeing as how it has changed a bit

And The M.Balmers  house, a heritage building over on top of the new underpass



it isn't any better in the daylight Kids



Tomorrow I will head down to the wharf to see any new additions since we aquired that bit of beach realestate

Jack, lots of new stuff, looking good.  :rock:

I like that pub, is it available in N scale?  [o:

 

Will, the pub is a Bar Mills kit called The Idaho Hotel, if you go to the Bar Mills site it says it is only in HO, S and  O I think,  but if you click on  "Idaho Hotel" in the  Kit index halfway down the page it says it is available in N,  so I guess the answer is yes.

Happy hunting.
