    Of course , Bill , when you were his age you didn't have someone like Chuck Doan to have as someone to aspire to . Obviously there were loads of great modellers back then , but Chuck is the " best of the best" . Like everyone else I hope that Tyler sticks with it and gets better year on year and doesn't get distracted by , er , gurls !

    Oh , and you're not a bad modeller yourself !

    Despite the "glaring" error in track gauge, Bill's enginehouse is FANTASTIC! What a great scene! So many wonderful angles ... loaded with details and fine finishes ... really like the way the fence in the back kinda "frustrates" your effort to see the stuff back there and yet suggests the whole open-enginehouse might be fenced off. Great work!

    Tyler's work is UNBELIEVABLE! What a talented young man ... hope he continues with it ...

    Yea I know it is that 6" wide gauge but I have been work in On3 since the early 70's. If I was starting now it would be On30.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks Larry. It was a fun build now I got to get it worked into a layout. Sure had a great time at the convention hang out with Verne and guys. Larry maybe I'll get to see you when I'm in NC.

    Yes, indeed...I want one.

    Larry, it is indeed On3, but I didn't want to point out that Bill's rails are spaced 6" too wide! )

    Bill has been emailing me sneak peaks of his build for some time now. Wow what a finish, it is ON3.

    Thank you all for your kind comments.

    Arthur, I wasn't able to pry that information from Tyler, sorry!

    I met Bill Davis at the convention, and then connected that he was the wizard behind an open air engine house diorama entered in the contest. Here are some photos:















    I wish I had one of these on my layout!

    Bill is a super nice guy, and very modest about his skill...he's one of several friends I met during the convention. I didn't check to see if the rails on his diorama are spaced for On30. This is one of several fine models that were not recognized for an award in the popular voting, but are definitely deserving of recognition for their fine modeling.
