Apperently I quite a bit sloweer than the rest of you, guys.
My personal favourites are Greg's shoe and Jeff's depot - not neglecting the others' projects.

Took some time to get a visible progress to show on my Ingalls 4S

Jim, Your flatcar isn't depressing at all! It's sharp. And thanks again for the leads on 3D software.

Norman, I normally don't like internal combustion stuff that much but your motive power unit is looking very well built and has a very interesting design. The front looks so modern and the back so 1920's. Very nice indeed.

Norman,

Very nice model you are building. I am intrigued by the unique styling, which didn't really catch on.

Mike

Added deck for access to doors and the freight elevator. Old railroad ties used for the foundation.



Freight elevator used to move material to and from second floor. Freelance design made with stripwood, cardboard and wire.

Dave,
Outstandingly modeling, I'm thouroughly impressed! Your weathered boards are spot on for great color as well. And the elevator is ingenious. Thanks for sharing your expert talent with us.

It's great to see everyone's challenge projects progressing so well!

Jim, you sure know how to cheer up a depressed flatcar.

Norman, your Ingalls 4S is really a unique looking engine, and you are doing a masterful job with it.

I have just finished my project!
I worked on it all day today, and finally have something to show you.
I gave up on the idea of having a footprint base, for my diorama.
So I went with a 11" inch by 7 1/2" inch base for my shoe house diorama.
This is how it all came out looking.





As you can see, Mrs. Gordon has been busy, she knew exactly what to do, with all these children.
She called Dr. Scholl, down the street, and asked if he would be willing to donate some playground equipment for this new daycare business she was opening.
Dr. Scholl, said he would be glad to help out with that.
So he had a custom shoehorn slide made up, and a bouncy see saw ride for the kids.
He even had his handyman make up a tire swing, and a sitting swing, and hang them up for the kids & Mrs. Gordon.




Mrs. Gordon said it's so wonderful to see the Preiser kids now playing with all of the Woodland & Merten children together at her new daycare.
The parents are all happy that they now have this service to help them during the day, while they all just stand around in different scenes.





This little project was a lot of fun!
And a nice distraction from my on going Fort York project.
I hope you all enjoyed it!
Back to the 1820's trenches I go!

Dave, your fence factory is looking great!
I love your freight elevator, it's a wonderful detail!
You must have a big space for all of these big buildings that you are building.
Any chance we could see some photos of your layout where these cool structures call home?

Looks like everything fit in that 11 wide footprint. I love the shoehorn slide! Nicely done, Greg.

I keep marveling at the many other projects that are going on. Some great stuff!

Thanks, Chuck!
That little shoehorn slide started off in real life as a spoon handle.
Thanks once again to my wife, and her thrift shop hunting.

Rich...you're too kind but thank you for the great comments.

Greg...The shoe module is perfect. What a fantastic job!!

All my 1:29 structures are on shelves awaiting the sell of our home and a new basement. The 1:48 scale go to my son and someday I will get photos of his layout. (he live a 1000 miles away.)
