MOW would suit me as well--I've been thinking about scratchbuilding an old wooden derick.

Just a reminder that we have about one week left.  Voting starts on Monday morning.

I will assume that everyone who started a thread still wants to enter so I'll add your name to the poll.  If you don't want to be added, let me know.

I'll probably (to no one's surprise) take a pass...  Spring building permit season is upon us, and any free time I had has evaporated.

But I am working on some pretty cool projects...



This is a cabin to be built in Haymarket, VA.  Not my design, but I got to do the final drafting and 3-D imaging.

And yes, those are @Ed Kapuscinski 's trees in the background!

Any chance you can size that for N scale and make a high res PDF of the whole building?  Asking for a friend of course.

I can do ya one better.  I can export the file as an EMF and you can 3-D print it!  How's about them apples!

Well... it's a Dell, actually, but you get the idea...

Cinders and ashes!

I’ve had to make three unexpected out of state trips in the last three weeks, and since I have not completed the structure part of the industrial structure challenge, I am also DNF (did not finish). Please take me out of the running.

I hope the construction threads stay open. I hope to make progress, and the steel modeling subcult is still around. I have learned a ton about the prototype, solving the scratchbuilding problems has been fun, and just getting back into modeling has been great.

Thanks for the extra push to do something that the Challenge provided.

I'll have to bow out as well, things didn't go quite as planned, but at least I've started a much needed project for my layout. Thanks for hosting Tom!  :tommann:

Unless I can make serious progress by Saturday and post new pictures, I will drop out as well.  I have enjoyed this project and will finish it. But we are leaving for a Spring Break trip on Sunday and there is plenty to do to get ready.

Best wishes,
Dave
