Thanks guys. I'm aiming for Brickfair VA next year, but I'm not sure if I can finish it by then. I'm building the whole thing to baseplate dimensions (4 x 6) so that it can be easily integrated into a LUG display at some point.

...I'm astounded... this is incredible! I see you're using that sand technique again too, very well done.

Amazing! I like the details, the way you've build the monorail system into the base/landscape

Everything is great!

Maybe you can create a crane to pick up the containers?

Thanks guys! Legosammy, the curved edge is built out of 2 x 2 tiles stacked on a long change of hinge plates, with a piece of flex tubing running along the inside edge for stability.

Since I'm here, here's an update after an unusually Lego-filled weekend:
