Elliot, this is absolutely stunning. Do I recall that you recently sold this diorama
or has it gone into hiding?

Greg, this is a fantastic idea. I'm certainly going to post this to my favorites so I can use it as a reference file. WOW this is great.

Building Skinner's Row was the beginning of my modeling education. Here are a couple of pictures taken by my friend, John Polyak, of my kit. Happily, I still have this one, although I may need to sell it one of these days:

Here's another one that I enjoyed a lot -- the 105 Piledriver. I build this one for Jimmy Deighnan and I didn't get any really good photographs before I let it go.

I've still got a couple more on the shelf that I hope to get to.

This showcase of FSM kits,in celebration of George's retirement, is working out fantastic!
Thanks to everyone who has participated in it so far!

I bought & built my first FSM kit when I was 13 years old,Ezra Coopers Garage kit#130 shown below.

This turned out to be the start of a life long love affair of George's kits.
I was able to build this kit again to honor our forums friend Mike Chambers, with a slightly different twist to it, this second time around.

Please keep the great FSM photo's coming!

Some of us actually put these into a layout. Built the 2 story depot back in 1973. Has about $70 worth of Prieser figures on and around it.

This is a great thread indeed Greg! What fantastic builds!

As a rookie I can only contribute with a #35 engine house that I built and placed on the layout.
I dared open the box after seeing Mike Chambers great thread building his.

It is quite mediocre compared to my newer builds and I regret that I did not build a proper interior structure. Lots of mistakes. Somehow the workbenches were built to high. Its glued down but hopefully someday I'll do something about it all. And add more details.

Hey Don, great pics of Skinners Row. If I may ask you a question.... do you know what the colors of the Bootlegg Boots building are? The whiteish windows with the color of the siding are very nice. Thanks for sharing your beautiful build.

Greg this thread is a great idea. There is some great modeling on display here, Everyone great job. Like everyone else I have built a lot of George's kits along with some scratchbuilt one when I didn't buy the kit or couldn't get it at the time. Here is one of my favorites. It is named after my father who took up wood working after he retired. As you can tell I made a few changes along the way.
