For members living in the Northern Hemisphere, we are entering some of the prime modeling time. As has been our tradition here on the RR-L Forums, it is time to kick off a group modeling challenge. The time period will be Jan 1 April 15, 2017. Participation is always greater in these group endeavors if there are some choices to be made, so here are four categories that you can choose from.

1) Shelf-liberating (as opposed to self-liberating): Grab a kit off the shelf and build it the older the kit and the longer it has been on the shelf, the better!

2) From Sketch to Scratch: This one is for scratch builders. Start with a sketch or drawing and construct the final model.

3) Hit the Road: Grab a vehicle kit off the shelf (Jordan, Sylvan, Alloy Forms, Wheel Works, Williams Bros., etc.) and get it ready to hit the road.

4) Square Footer: Incorporate at least one model into a 1 Sq. Ft. diorama/scene.


Are you in?

Sounds fun.

I'll go with a 1984 Builders in Scale kit of the Jefferson C&S depot. You can even tell the instructions booklet was done on a typewriter. ;)

Cheers,
Jeff.

The actual thread for the challenge is now open at this link: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=48421

I will therefore lock this thread so that there is no confusion as to where to post Challenge activity.

See you there!
