You're still one of the best model-builders on the site. No reason why I can't keep following this.

I'm glad to see you're still working on this project and not leaving it off to the side. It's getting better and better.

Very interested! I bet Sea World would love to host your model once you finish it. It really is amazing how you make these models. The process is time consuming but the final product looks beautiful.

The station is now complete. I am so thrilled with how the entrance to the ride and aquarium has turned out. Next up will be painting the station and then beginning to lay the grass and plant the trees. Things should come together quickly now.

Let me know what you think!

Sorry for the pics being upside down. I'm posting from an iPad and it looks normal to me!

The station is done for the most part. I need to add the fountain off the front side but other than that it is done.

I am now working on the grass and path. The path is made of clay and spread out thinly to add some character to the model. The grass is being done in sheets/fabric because I thought it looked a lot more realistic. It is tougher, though, because I have to cut holes out for the supports.

Let me know your thoughts!
