Hi everyone,I was thinking that it would be nice to honor George Sellios in his retirement year.
Let's show him what we have done,with his great kits!
By creating this thread featuring everyone's favorite FSM kits they have built through the years.
All shown here, in one place.It would even be great if we could have photo's posted of every kit George ever manufactured!
Just a way of thanking George for his marvelous contribution to our hobby, over the years!

I have built many of his kits through the years,but If I had to pick a favorite one,it would definitely have to be his "Emporium Seafood" kit#290.
I added a couple of changes to my version of it,and even changed the name to Captain Nemo's Emporium Seafood.
So to get things rolling here are some pics of what I did with this now classic FSM kit.

Hey Greg. Good idea, and great job on the Emporium. I've built a bunch of George's kits over the years- I think 17 or so. Here's my version of Dexter's Dead End.

That's a great thread, Greg. Nice job on the kits so far, to the both of you. I haven't started any of mine yet, so I can't share a photo here. It's nice to see what you have done.

Great idea for a thread, Greg. I haven't built any of his kits, but I'll enjoy seeing what others have done.

The first two postings from Greg and Mike are great start to the thread.

And I remember there was a great topic by the late Kevin O'Neill about his building of Duffy's coal.
I am sure that from his modeler's paradise he would agree if we posted there some pics of his wonderful building of it.
Final pictures were shown here : http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=16258
Maybe his close friends Brett and Karl would want to post themselves a few excerpts of this final pics thread on this one.

This is a great idea, Greg.

Here is my rendition of one of George's early kits - his tower.
