It is time to open the December Photo Gallery. This will be our 12th Annual ‘photo review’ - a showcase of what we have accomplished at the modeling bench or on the layout in 2018.

Photos showing any modeling work you've done over the past year are welcome: structures, rolling stock, vehicles, motive power, scenery work, track work, layout construction - all are appropriate!

As we did the past two years, we will include another category to the mix. Feel free to add your favorite photo(s) that you took during 2018 even if the subject of the photo was not built during the year or was on someone else's layout or diorama.

Since the more prolific modelers among us might have a lot of photos to share, I will suggest that you spread them among several posts. Those members on dial-up have loads of problems if we upload more than 3 or 4 pictures at a time.

Okay, then, let’s see what you have accomplished or what photos you have taken in 2018!

Looks like I'll get things started here with this tribute that I built for forum friend and member Bill Gill.
It's the "Fine Scale Miniatures" Jewel series No.1 kit, the pile driver.

OK, proving that I actually did get some modeling done this year, here's my scratchbuilt Bangor & Aroostook Y-2 diesel switcher at work:

First up for me, this past year, was a scratchbuilt billboard from styrene. The artwork is borrowed from a poster I found on-line, and modified for a billboard. I built this for the roof of a structure that was getting built, later.

Frist ever TT scale kit build. Thanks to the guys on the forum that showed how to paint a model first before assembly. Makes a building look much better. I see from the close up pictures I still have some touch up to do.

Came out Great Bernd

Its been a quiet year for me. No structures as such completed, just a bunch of vehicles and this little diorama. It was a challenge on another forum to build a pick up of some sorts.

Great builds, Carl!

In April I added Dooley's to the layout.

With an interior in the garage section.

This is a display diorama I am just about finished with that I am bringing to the Springfield show in January. I'm still working on it, but it's close to the end. Once I get my dumping dirt mounted and a final weathering it'll be done.

Here's a pic of the dirt being dumped. I still need to work on it a bit, but is looks pretty convincing, I think. :)
