    Guess I better enter this while I am still officially the owner (and artist). Unfortunately it's up for sale this week. Sorry about the cheesy foreground detracting from the overall realism. It's HO scale, by the way.

    Here's my entry, in keeping with the first shot from Mike - the first (and so far only) loco that I've weathered. The year is 1954 and this old switcher is about 8 months away from passing forever into history.

    cheers

    Good entries so far folks. Going to be another tough one to judge.
    This old hard working MAT gp40 loco is switching at the J.Brown coal mine. The loco is certainly due for a re-paint in the new MAT colours

    A local plastic bottle manufacturer is recieving a car of plastic pellets. In a couple of hours the car will be emptied into the one of the two silos.
    Hmmm....The paint job on that blue car looks awfully familiar.......

    This is the completed 1:48 scale model of my grandfathers's blacksmith shop in Turin, Ioway. I posted less finished shots in the scratch and bash forum. If you saw that thread, you know this is my fathers birthday gift, so we have another fleeting entry; Saturday it will be his. Scratch built, and the wood was cut by me. Plans for this building are available in the academy.

    Jon, my hat's off to you on that blacksmith shop! What a great gift!

    Below is a picture I posted before in the N/Z forum. I'm using this photo on a flyer that I'm hanging up around town asking for people who are intrested in starting an N-scale model railroad club in Huntsville.
