      As always a huge thank you to Dave T for hosting this. I never participated during the MIK years but I think he would be tickled to see his legacy live on in this challenge. I know I sure would if I was him. Thanks Dave.

       

      To all who participated, finished or not, I got some great take aways this year. John C's use of cut stone tiles is a keeper. Bill's revamping playmobil buildings into realistic buildings, I will be on the look out at garage sales and thrift stores from now on. Dan's use of 3D printing, while not the way to go for all construction, he sure showed its versatility and the possibilities for one off parts or for masters to be cast in resin is a keeper. Lou gave me a great use for one of my lil hauler coaches, I will have a nice track side shanty. The Mueller family makes me want to move to Hawaii; while everyone else is buried in snow and rain during the build, they went to the beach. Aside from my extreme jealousy, it makes me want to share my hobby with someone younger. My kids are beyond that age but I have young grand nieces and nephews, neighbor kids, and probably soon (hopefully not too soon) grandkids. As with every year I think Eric is the grand prize winner because he gets to do this with his brood. And I am now saving meat trays and my wife is giving me dirty looks. Dennis' weathering is one to copy as usual, got some ideas there. I also love Dave's stone work and the possibilities that exist there since I have a mold of the stones.

       

      Just some great ideas and I am always amazed at what we come up with using some pretty ingenious stuff (Tim's Christmas ornament).

       

      A final thought: Dan, John P., John C. please finish your projects and continue to post. All were ambitious and all have great ideas I want to see finished so I can rob them.

       Nice job everyone!!! this year we may have to make catagories for the winners, as ALL are worthy of a prize. It felt funny to sit on the sidelinesand watch but I could not see me having the time to compete, which probably upped the overall quality ! Look forward to the hard part of judging and voting for the "winners" as all who started are winners!! congrats everyone

      Nice sentiments, but we missed you. We need you too, fresh ideas keep our minds active, I want to see your trucking experience come to life, much as Noel's layout shows his years on the road.

      Put in for contest friendly hours for next year, now!

      We want you back.

      Why are not all the "Challenge Builds for 2020" in the "voting thread" and when "or how" is it time to vote?

      Yep, Dave's right, I am waiting on this liquid sunshine to go away.  Hopefully it will be nice out on Saturday and I will be able to get the photos taken.  I think, according to the original schedule we have until Sunday to get them uploaded.

      Does a DNF disqualify?

      I wouldn't think so or at least I hope not as I like looking at all of them no matter what stage they are in, might not receive as many points as completed ones but then again I didn't write the rules

      Sure would have liked an answer from the boss.

      I will gladly remove my post from the voting page, if I'm DQ'd.
