Lots of great work displayed here.

This year I decided to try to enter a model each month in our NMRA divisions's Bring n Brag popular vote contest. January is an "Everything goes" month and I entered a model built in 2017, so I won't display is here. I missed the February meeting, but in March I presented a bark car, constructed from a flat car I had built twenty years ago or so:



I earned third place in the popular vote.

In April I displayed a set of coal hoppers I scratchbuilt a couple of years ago and received first place in votes.

At the next meeting I entered a kitbashed locomotive, once again a model that sat unfinished for about twenty years and garnered a first place:



Our division has a picnic each August, and I displayed my coal trestle (second place):

Continuing . . . I built a lumber yard for our NMRA division's Bring 'n' Brag contest and received first place in the popular vote:



Looks a little barren, doesn't it? I'll add more detail when I install it on my layout, perhaps even more buildings.

Meanwhile, I finished my two cabooses for a third place:



And finally, in November, a first place for my farm store:



The Bring 'n' Brag challenges me to come up with a worthy model each month that fits the monthly category yet does not send me off onto a tangent. I've built enough models that end up sitting on a shelf. This year the contest motivated me to complete several projects started in previous years, and to build new businesses for my layout that fit into my "master plan."

Nice work, Mike !!

Going back to January I threw this hopper skeleton together to represent a car in the stage of being re-built.



So I could hide it in the car shop.

The billboard I built on the first page of this thread was used for the roof of my coal mine office building. The structure is a DPM building.

I started O'Neill's Fabrication in January and finished in December. Pretty much the only modeling I was able to get done this year, but I did add a few extras to the diorama.

I wandered into O scale and built this lobster shack out of paper and card stock (except the buoys and chimney). It was my first project using my Cricut machine.

I was fortunate to see the diorama in person last month and the photographs don't come near to showing the fantastic detail work Brian did.

A time keeper's building in Ho scale, made for my train club. The walls, roof and floor were cut from styrene using my Cricut machine. The doors and some of the details were also cut with the Cricut machine.

Next up, for me, was a Brownhoist industrial pillar crane by JL Innovative Designs. I didn't like the cab in the kit, so I constructed my own, moving the entry door to the back.
