I often snap photos of projects as they progress on my workbench. It is so easy to capture images with a cell phone, point and shoot camera, or a digital SLR. I’m able to share ideas and techniques with friends and I can send out a call for help when I screw something up.
I like to wrap up a project or two before a prototype modeler meet so I can take the models for display. A couple of months ago I came across an Accurail 36-foot boxcar that I had detailed but had not completed. That’s how the model appeared when I decided to finish it off.
I’m still catching up from the RPM Chicagoland prototype modeler event. I enjoyed meeting many modelers, renewing friendships, attending presentations, viewing a wide variety of models on display, and visiting a couple local layouts.
