It is December, and another year is coming to a close. That means that it is time for our seventh annual ‘photo review’ - a showcase for what we have accomplished at the modeling bench or on the layout in 2013.

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 2013! 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.

Since I was working last year during my usual prime modeling months, I have little to add to this thread. In fact, the only structure that I finished was Walt's (Rusty Stumps) 3 car garage.

One of my first projects in 2013 was Walt's Boarding House from the Kelley's Landing series.




What I really liked about this kit was the outer detail in the staircases and upper landings. The shelf was from a detail I had from somewhere else, I believe.



I incorporated one of Jimmy D's Railroad Kits Resin Details into the building. I like combining aspects from different companies in a modelling project.



A project I have for the new year will be to place this great looking structure from Walt onto a diorama.

Some great modeling examples already posted by Bruce,Louis,Chester & Mike.
Louis, that rodeo scene is great! I missed that thread somehow.
I started this one last year 2012,but finally finished it this year.
I also had the pleasure of building it with some other talented forum members right here.

This year I finally got around to installing a Revolution r/c control system in my 4-6-0, as well as converting it to battery power. I also created a three-car passenger train, by modifying, painting and lettering a set of Bachmann coaches:




I refurbished my water tower and built a new, much more realistic spout for it:




I also scratch-built these two structures, for my town of Mineral Ridge. The "stone" building is finished except for lighting and interior details. The "brick" building is nearing completion externally, but like the other it may be a while before I get around to adding the interior:






Lately I've been putting in a lot of foundations for future structures at several locations on the layout, but mostly in Mineral Ridge. Here's a recent photo of the site with most of the new foundations in place, and a simple drawing showing roughly how the mill will look and how it will fit into the scene. (The two buildings in the above photos have been removed from the layout while I do the foundation work.)

Here is a couple of things I did this year, the most recent is this, my 2 x 2 inch diorama. I'll tell you it sure was hard getting a 6.5" engine on a 2" square base, but some how it all came together.




I also did one of Joe Rutter's kits from Full Steam Ahead for a fellow railroader friend. McPhinnie's Garage & Welding Shack.

Hmmm, what have I done this year?
Except from my studies then....
I have built this of course:

A big layout....
The Layout is for the toy and tech museum here.
Swedish setting with lots of mountains.
I had help from a friend with the benchwork (he is a carpenter).
We started in February and opened for public in June....

The boat is scratchbuilt as well.

I have been extremely lazy modelingwise this year... Nothing done at the layout... period

I managed to finish a 1:12 diorama of a 1905 daylight photo studio, as a partner to my french canal-side bathhouse diorama for the easter exhibition.
