1. Ladies & gentlemen, I would like to announce that there is a new photo gallery section. You can create your own personal photo gallery (to include setting up your own albums). You can even post videos. You can also post and share photos in the galleries of others (if that person allows such), as well . ENJOY!!!

Jackpot! (logging info sites)

    Works now Shamus...

    Cam, that is nice! Do you suppose if you trace the family trees back a few hundred years, Paul and Geoff are distant cousins? They seem to share a modeling gene :D :D :D

    They are both leading modelers in this genre and an inspiration to those of us with limited imaginations.

    Maybe The Beast would make a nice project. Better built up a chruch or two before releasing that on the layout though!

    OK, I added an "A"
