It is December, and another year is coming to a close. That means that it is time for our sixth annual ‘photo review’ - a showcase for what we have accomplished at the modeling bench or on the layout in 2012.

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!

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 in 2012! You don't want us to think that you've done nothing, right?

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

In a year where most of my accomplishments were pretty small projects, here is one of the smallest. I finally got out the dry transfers and lettered my brass HOn3 Forney for my Slate Run RR.

Cletus,

Thanks for jumping in with the station photos. Including the link to the original thread was a great idea, too.

The first project I did this year is to detail and repower an MDC Alco/GE/Ingersoll-Rand Boxcab kit. I bought the kit in the 1990's and started to work on it, but wasn't happy with my skills at that time. Since then, my skills have improved considerably and there are better products on the market for details and repowering this little loco.

The thread on it is here:

And, here are finished photos of both sides:

Early in the year, the forum celebrated its 10th anniversary and there was a challenge build held. I chose to kitbash a great kit offering from Walter Gillespie at Rusty Stumps...the I.O.O.F. Hall. I decided to create a triple purpose structure. Walt's Warehouse in honour of Walt, Charlie's Chocolates, as I love chocolate and, well, Charlie has the Chocolate Factory, doesn't he? I also included the Lyon Concert hall named after my train buddy, Chris Lyon, a gentleman I often play guitar with.



For the challenge, I challenged myself by adding an addition to the structure creating an L-shaped building.



I thank Walt for bringing out such a great kit that offers the modeller a large array of creative possibilities...or you can build straight from the instructions.



The multi-levelled loading areas all were scratchbuilt as were many additional roof canopy sections.

Feel free to check out the build at http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=35664

I've done a few things throughout the year. Starting in Jan 2012 there was the "2 Month Challenge build" Where I build this structure, bouys w/led's & tug boat. http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=35557&whichpage=1
I've always enjoyed these Forum Challenges!

For starters I built 3 Walthers Conerstone background buildings 2 Buds Trucking Compay and a Lauston shipping.

Bud's Trucking:


Lauston Shipping:




I added the 2 shipping doors since these was a option.

I'll add some more finish projects later.

For the Tenth Anniversary build a model, I constructed a kitbash in a box of an Eastern Car Works 3500CF Dryflow Covered Hopper. These were somewhat rare, and their is only one know picture of the Wabash car which I intend to build in the future. I did find a James Kincaid picture of the CB&Q car to aid in building this car.

I added a few details like all the air lines from the triple valve to the air reservoir, and the airline under one side of the car.







Thanks for looking!

I also gussied up these two era-specific cars. The Monon AAR boxcar, built 10-41, was a Red Caboose kit. The B&O class M53 wagon top box, New 9-37, was by ExactRail.

I think this December accomplishments gallery is fantastic!
It's kinda like our annual company party,showcasing everyone's hard work from the past 12 months.
That being said, here is my first contribution to this party.
As part of the the Railroad-Line forums 10th anniversary, build a model in 2 months challenge.
2012 also marked the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic.
So I took this challenge on,as a opportunity to build a 1/400th scale model of this remarkable ship, that continues to fascinate us today.
