    Hi everyone and thanks for the positive comments. This project has been a lot of fun to work on, and I hope we can do some future challenges here -- keeps me motivated!

    I've had some time to finish up detail work on this project, so this post will be the last before the deadline. There are a couple of things that still could be added -- I've got three stray lpb half painted on the workbench, the raw materials for gutters adn downspouts, and at some point I want to add interior detail and lighting to the garage. At this point, I'm kind of sick of working on this, so I think it will sit on a shelf for awhile.

    When I started this, I had two main goals: to make a "purse out of a sow's ear" by pushing the limits of a so-so kit and to challenge myself by experimenting with some new materials and techniques (specifically scratchbuilt brickwork, interiors, and fall foliage). With the exception of the interiors, I completed everything I set out to do, although I can see lots of room for improvement.

    This was a ton of fun, and thanks to all the others who have participated, commented, and generally made the Gauge a cool place to hang out.

    Someone's got a copy of George Sellios's tape!
    Looks real good. Like the trees. Could almost smell the autumn air.

    Extremely impressive! I would be happy if my future modeling projects turn out half that good.

    Boy, is the competition ever heating up. I don't know how I'm ever going to top this...:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Absolutely a fantastic job...:thumb: :thumb:

    BTW, you're right, this was more fun doing than we should be allowed to have. Win, lose or draw, I had a great time.:D My only problem is that now I'm stuck with a bunch of little green men that are eating me out of house and home...:eek: :eek:

    Wow, I must have missed a few. What a great bash.

    I love what everyone has been doing. This is going to be a tough contest.

    As soon as it's finished we need to start planning for another.
