    Holy snap! I don't know why I didn't see this build until now. That is just awesome.

    that's some good modeling. Maybe one of these days, you will get one of your projects completed! :) I bet your workbench looked like mine did a few months ago - a dozen projects between 50 and 90 percent completed :) That was until I decided to finish projects I had already started rather than buy more new stuff :)

    Excellent work! I've kitbashed and scratchbuilt structures partly because, well, they don't have to roll! But you've done a great job and what you've acheived, completed or not, is still an accomplishment. This from a fellow modeler fitting Kevin's description...more than a few incomplete kits & projects lying around. I wish I had his fortitude & stick-to-it-iveness!

    Yep, incomplete projects are a part of my life. The thing is, I shuffle my projects. Whenever I get frustrated with one...or need to purchase parts...I switch to another. I always switch back in time...and these cars are so cheap that it doesn't matter.

    -the stock car will be resumed...although I need more #62 NBWs.
    -one of the gondolas needs stake pockets, the other needs paint.
    -the 27' boxcar needs me to derive the 2nd generation of working door hardware
    -the passenger car needs me to make more of the new carlines
    -the ore car needs me to decide on how to design a few of the details.
    -both flat cars are progressing nicely.

    Thank you for the compliments.
