    Okay, this month will be a "Model" either scratchbuilt or kitbashed or just plain out of the box as new. Its your model, you show. Contest will be judged on the setting the model was photographed in as well as the model itself.
    So even if you haven't got a layout yet, just make a small diorama to photograph it on.


    Usual rules apply, no questions in this thread, start a new thread for questions.

    This was the last Traction motor scratch built I manage to "do" in 2003.

    Here's mine - no scratching or bashing on this one, just some detail work.

    Hello fellas,

    I have been busy over at the Railroad Line forum but have finished my first major project, with lots of advice and encouragement from Casey and the crew of RR-L so may I show off what I have completed?

    LPB Reprocessing Factory

    As the name implies, this factory is for reprocessing my LPBs. You may notice the driver is headless. This renders even the most unruley LPB harmless and all out loyal to his owner. Yup, just snip off their heads and they are on your side. They might not look very prototypical, but you can get real work done. Anyway, this building is for chemically stripping off the LPB's clothes, then they get loaded in the gondo and taken to the other side of the layout, where they are shredded to be molded into accessories at a later date. They may end up as an animal, a wagon, or an outhouse. Who knows?

    Yep, those are my meds in the background :D :D :D

    This is a LL GP30 shell modified and sits on a Athearn Chassis with a Kato drive from a CON-COR MP1500. It is HO but sitting on a track board on my N Scale Layout.
