  • The 2022 Forum Renewal Challenge

    To celebrate the re-birth of the RR-L Forums with our new software, we will dedicate this year’s Challenge to Joe whose willingness to spend his time and money to migrate the RR-L’s content to a new platform will keep us moving forward for many years.

    As is our usual practice, some choices of modeling projects will form the structure of the Challenge.

    Our choices this year are:
    1. Loading Dock Mini-Scene: Build a loading dock of any type and create a mini-scene using details either scratch built or purchased.
    2. Brick Wall Project: Take a section of brick wall – made of any material (plaster, plastic, laser cut wood, etc.) and use your imagination to paint, weather, and detail it. You could even combine this with Choice #1 and put a loading dock in front of your wall.
    3. Finish a model: If you have a partially completed model sitting somewhere on a shelf, pull it out and finish it up!
    4. Start anew: Take a kit of any type of model off the shelf and have at it! Or, make some plans of your own and scratch build a model of your choice.
    5. Layout Project: If you have been wanting to attack some project on your layout, why not do it as part of this Challenge.
    Time frame will be our usual January 1 – April 30, 2022

    I will open the official Challenge thread in the Mike Chambers’ Craftsman’s Corner by January 1st.

    We look forward to your participation.

      Does rebuilding the 4x8 section of my layout count? It's not like it's a scene, or a group of bldgs. in a town, or something like a rock outcropping . But, I guess it's still a project.....'Dunno', I've never done one of the challenges before so if anyone could give me a ruling, I'm in.

        Hi Kyle. Yep join in, the more the merrier.
        Your idea fits perfectly with No. 5 - Layout Project.
