A few more details added

I staged the structure with a few other FOS offerings.
Yesterday I decided to add a few more details to the FOS kit. It needed a ladder to get down to the water, some pigeons that are by BEST, a few boards on the roof, oars on the deck and I added heavy wire screening that is rusted up to the window...George Dutka

The backside of the building.
The ladder is an Osborn detail. Don't recall the make of the oars.

FOS "Kit-of-the-Month"

I added more details to the platform then is included in the kit. I still will add a ladder and a few pigeons.
I just finished another kit of the month today. It is one from the first offering from 2019. It will be set in my waterfront scene once I have enough building constructed to lay out the waters edge...George Dutka

The no wake 5mph sign is made using a stencil included with the kit. I think it turned out well.

Pickstuff HO Scale Loading Dock

The finished loading dock with its wooden bumper edging. Some nut and bolt casting are also applied.
I pieced two loading docks together from a package of Pikestuff loading dock. This might be added to an industrial building at some point. Some details still need to be added to the dock...George Dutka

This is what comes in the package.
I assembled the dock using Walthers goo than painted it with Model Master acrylic light sea gray. Once dry it got a wash of india ink - alcohol mix. I then applied weathered with these colors of PanPastels. I made wooden edging from strip wood on hand weathering it with India ink alcohol mix.
