Canal PIP & Crane
The painting of the canal warehouse board has begun. Really happy with the flagstones, still a little unconvinced by the tower. I might do another lighter coat to try and make a wider difference between the two surfaces.
You can also see in the above pictures I’ve started the roof. I’ve done the vertical gables and started the detailing on the hoist. All WIP at the moment of course.
Also done some work on the hamster crane. I realised when I had a proper look that it didn’t really have the reach to get across the path at the side of the canal. Hrm. So I’ve mounted it on a small platform.
The small notch in the supporting beams sits over the raised edge of the canal sides. This means the platform hangs over the edge by about 2cm. Gives it enough clearance to reach the barge.
Also worked out how to attach the wheel to the main post, which I have done. And even added some little stairs for detail. I plan to surround this and the cart with sacks and boxes anyway so it should need much more detailing.
