Karl, first of all, Happy Anniversary. I appreciate your willingness to share your models and techniques with us.

That's an impressive collection of models. Hopefully I'll make it to the NG Convention and meet up with you again.

Karl, the progression of photos is simply amazing! I remember each of your builds but seeing them all together in like that really illustrates your talent as well as your 'growth' as a modeler. Thanks for taking the time to post this retrospective - and thanks for all of your contributions and input over the past 3 years!

(And congratulations on your 'partnership' with Brett. He's a great guy in addition to being highly creative. I know you'll enjoy working with him on his new projects this next year.)

Great modelling, Karl! I had no idea that you were that relatively new to this forum and craftsman construction. I assumed that you'd been doing this forever - the way you so easily switch to scratchbuilding to get exactly what you want. Very creative and inspiring - especially "Pauline's Art Shop" - and it's not because I'm an artist - I just think it looks perfect!

Thanks for summary, I wasn't here for the three yesars but it seems that I have seen all or most of those beautiful models along the way.
I joined RR-L for many of the same reasons you did; and I continually remind myself that if I do half as well as most of you guys I'm doing just fine.
Please keep up the awesome work.

Hard to believe it has been 3 years since your first post.
I remember the first model well and I also remember reading your construction threads for the other models you have posted.

Hard to pick a favorite but if pressed I would go with Shelby's since this is my favorite Sierra West structure and seeing it done in a larger scale was just great.

I also thank you for all the useful information you have posted in your threads about the different techniques you have used to achieve your results.

In today's world where everyone seems to have a DVD for sale explaining modeling techniques it is nice to see someone who will explain what they are doing at no charge.
