Villa Dei Pini (work in progress)

at 44.379856, 9.059553

I just posted model "Villa Dei Pini (work in progress)" to my warehouse and this is a geo located villa that still needs a roof and photos of the exterior walls painted onto the basic shape.

However, at this stage when I position the building into the terrain, the terrain is not adjusted for the grading to the grounds adjacent the the model walls. Thus the uphill portion of the model is buried while the downhill side of the model is suspended in the air. What is the procedure to correctly place the model? Do I need to also create the terraces in the terrain around the building?

I am a guest here for 10 more days and I would like to get as much finished on this project as possible so any immediate comments will be much appreciated.

Fishing Boat Haul Out in Bogliasco

The method of embedding wooden beams across the boat ramp is smart. The hull is hauled over the forgiving wooden beams rather than roughly abraded on a beach, rock or cement shingle. The principle advantage of not putting the trailer in the salt water is the wheel bearing do not get wet and the trailer suffers less rust. A public electric cable winch pull as the men guide the hull.
