    Mikey: If you were a member, you might not think that such a compliment! Thumbs is the cartoon guy who can derail a non-moving train on a straight track. The Thumbs award is for far-out creations; the first winner was a "wire car" that consisted of two talgo trucks connected by a stretched-out paper clip.
    But you have 8 months to join!

    Boy Mikey, you scared the whatever out of me. I had to go check the deadline. I figured if you got your entry in already, it must be close to the end of the contest.:eek::eek: I'm pleased to find that I've got two more months to work on my entry.:D:D

    Good job, lots of imagination there...:thumb:

    LOL Thanks!!! and --- Sorry! :) I was off last week, and my next scheduled vacation is Thanksgiving, then the week before X-mas..

    I had to do all the large work, while I had the chance. I'm working on the "detailing" (and weathering Maybe) when I get another chance :) Maybe the Friday after Thanksgiving :) :)

    Plus - I wanted to get my 'idea" in - before someone else thought of it :D :D :D

    I never would've guessed a work train could be pulled out of that Altas kit... Very cool!

    The roof of the Warehouse is all painted & detailed. The roof of the work room is all detailed (Smoke stack too). All the interiors are finished :) all painted & detailed....

    They'll be off to the shops next to be numbered, but they are done for the challenge :)

    Looking really good Mikey.:thumb: Can I send you over a couple of little green men to give your guys a hand there? With all that ingenuity put into your project, my guys should be able to pick up a few pointers...:D :D
