Coast Guard MOC

Post by St7summer »

I am curious if there is any interest or space at any VLC display for a Coast Guard MOC. I have been working on a large cutter, RHI, and C-130 I would like to one day set in a scene with a rocky coast line. The ship I am building should be done in a couple of months or less. Below are links to photos of the progress.

It may be something we could incorporate into the Train Expo layout in the Fall. If we can expand the water area even more this coming year, it could look fairly nice next to some other ships. I'll also be wanting a little more room to run my tugboat around.
I own a bit of Lego. A little obsessive by some peoples standards.

Sounds like that could be fun! I will keep posting the progress. How do you build your water? I have 8 baseplates worth of 1x2 trans blue tiles.

Typically it's just been blue baseplates, but with the discussions about the MILS standards, we could also look into water texturing. I've got a bit of blue track that I used for moving the boat around this last Fall at the Train show.

This is my latest version of water, trying to add depth and colour with different shades of blue.
