Jetty

Hi gents,

I painted up a couple of sets of wooded jetty this week from Ainsty castings easy to paint and quite effective.I am having a fleet of Ainsty ships painted up at present for this theme but more of that later when they arrive.Seven months on from ordering and the new buildings from Touching History are finally here!  I feel lucky to have these as Paul is talking about getting out of the hobby altogether, not sure if he can stay away though.The miniatures are from Perry/ Foundry and Redoubt with a couple of Hovels figures for good measure..
Ainsty wooden jetty painted by me.

A few of the civvies painted last month.

Making good use of the old calendar as a back drop.

Legree in the back ground by Dave Jarvis.

The building with the white veranda arrived yesterday from Touching History.

I have been building up the dock areas as I have another 4/5 ships being done at present.

If I get a chance in the summer the Tss tiles will be given a make over.

Final shot
Thanks for having a look!
Willie
