It is December, and another year is coming to a close. That means that it is time for our ninth annual ‘photo review’ - a showcase of what we have accomplished at the modeling bench or on the layout in 2015.

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 2015! You don't want us to think that you've done nothing, right?

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

I'll start off with a few pictures of some of my 'fill in' modeling. I assembled a half-dozen additional coal hoppers, up graded their wheels and couplers, added coal loads and weathered the cars.

This tends to be my go-to type project when I have the urge to do some modeling, but do not have a large block of time.

It only took 10 years, from start to finish. But, here is my Magnuson Models Union Ave Freight Terminal.













And, I am still working on another project, which I hope to finish this month.

This was a slow modeling year for me as real world "work" took much of my time. I finished one
project and completed three others.

The one I finished was the "Airplane Cafe". 1/24 scale scratch built.







I'll post the three I completed as separate files to keep things small as Bruce suggested.

This was the second project built in 2015. It is a Greyhound Bus Terminal, loosely based on a real
one, much downsized. It was made to use a 1940's bus that I scratch built years ago. There is
also a tattoo parlor around back in the alley.1/24 scale scratch built.

My first entrance into a build challenge this year got me started to build a quartet of HOn30 electric boxcabs. Still not done and don't know when they will be done.



And one of the four that's real close to being done.

My entry in last winter's Choices Challenge was the HO Scale DeWitt's Depository by Campbell which I made into Ellie's Electrical Supply Co. (Named after one of our granddaughters.)

wow! Great modeling by all! The quality of detail is inspirational.
Bruce...could you do a post on how you make decorative signs like Ellie's?

Great looking models everyone!
I can't believe that it's that time again for our 2015 "Modeling Year in Review" man time flies when your having fun!
I managed to finally finish off some uncompleted projects this year, and start some new ones as well.
This first one I'm going to show you, is my first ever printed on paper structure.
I think it looks pretty good, for just being printed on cardstock cut out & glued all together.
