Modeling ideas - Fish Shacks

Back in the mid-1970's I traveled throughout Nova Scotia looking for someone to build me a lobster boat. I never did buy a boat there. At the time the builders were changing from wood to fiberglass and the boats were cheesy but cheap. I, instead choose a Maine builder, General Marine, to build my boat. The boat is still in the water and works everyday hauling lobster pots.

I had a cheap Russian 35mm camera at the time and liked photographing the little fishing villages that lined the shoreline. 

Here are two of the buildings I saw.

Later in Maine, on my way to check out the progress of my new boat that was being built, I caught this scene. A great modeling inspiration!
