This is a very nice base setting the lighthouse on a naturalistic ground. RichIt is done! Finally finished! I don’t have a lot of experience with scenery, but I will give it a passing grade…lol. I can dry brush and do rocks, but the grass is something I can improve on.

Thank you Peter, much appreciated!The image I have in mind when the BN and lighthouse are on fireplace mantle in your son's house ........
Friends of him have come to visit and watch them both closely. "Yes", your son tells admiringly, "My father made them!".
You can be very proud!
Poetic...It is now just after two in the morning and as per usual I can't sleep. Outside the wind is picking up as the elements are readying themselves for one of the last heavy rainstorms of the summer monsoon season. I am in the spare bedroom browsing through the posts on SOS on my old Dell laptop when I see your completed build pictures. Invariably I lean back against the pillows and close my eyes. And vividly I hear again the sounds of a Cape South Easter bringing alive the rigging of Assegaai as she bobs impatiently and strains her mooring lines in Cape Town harbor - the scene silhouetted by the monotonous yet faithful sweep of light from the lonely and seemingly distant lighthouse.
Thank you for reviving these memories ...
