Goos afternoon.
A friend made an observation as to why I model lots of swamps and marshes maybe it has something to do with my surname Marsh funny.
Here is the beginning of the stepdown from the old concrete to the mud a bit greener than the rest of the world but doing very well from the runoff, just filling in the gaps.
Here I have used a mix of commercial products and natural ones,
To finish there will be more steps of finish like dust.
cheers.

I like the use of different materials! As in nature there is not just one kind of weed growing everywhrere.

Very effective use of a variety of materials in the ground cover Kim and I particularly like your worn concrete... well done!

Kim,

that looks great. Not only the different textures but also the coloring, for example this blueish/greyish spot. I'm looking forward for the next step!

Thanks, everybody your comments.
Volker the concrete is great fun it used to be hard but taking tips I now spread a thin coat of ordinary plaster over cardboard. After it dries just crack it I also put my thumb through it no worries if it is still wet just wait till it dries then glue the sheet down with weights,
Moving along the slopes of the lagoon has just been through a big flood just look at all that damage but no money for repairs.

With such a short pier, how would the crew load or unload freight into or out of a boat?

The modeling and scenery are up to your usual high standards.

Russ I could well imagine that this can be done by hand.

Morning all.
Here is a picture that tells a story to notice the barge has its own gantry basically the landing stage is optional as the loading could be made directly from the shore.
cheers.
