There are so many good entries this year. Dave Taylor’s HD Flat and the Rubelator. Definitely the heaviest narrow gauge flat car in history. The Rubelator used more and more variety of cans than anyone else.
Pete Lassen’s Hippy Hut, a unique use of a decorative tin. I think he should have maintained the original paint.
Vic Smith, another great ‘small’ space build. Always thinking ‘pizza’ layout.
Engnine 98 did a great build with a soup can into a quite credible tank car for a short line railroad.
Jim Rowson’s backwoods moonshine still is one of the most creative scenes this year. His ability to make the simple stuff looke great is a unique ability.
Todd Haskins definitley gets the nod for the largest in square feet of layut coverage. The can is almost lost in the sheer size of the building.
Rick Marty’s water tower is a great addition to his railroad and just right proportioned.
Devon Sinsley… what can I say, always the ambitious build. Thought he was going to make it to the end, but his health had other ideas. He still gets the tenacious award for all those rivets he placed, let alone the ones he didn’t.
Eric Schade’s excellent metal work on two unique 7/8’s scale cars.
Todd Brody surprised us all the the ‘Can’ can. Definitely original in all aspects, especially the animation.
John Passaro’s Caboose Service Facility is outrageous. The roof is a one off, and the art gallery sets this one apart,
Team Mueller…what can I say! The range of talent displayed by all the family members is fantastic. Each one of them deserves Kudos in their own right.
Dan Hilyer built a right smart oil storage facility, complete with pump house, barrels and some grime.
Lou Luczu… A KEGGER!!! What an interesting build. Keeping the original paint was the right thing to do. Sets it off as a piece of art work.
Now for my votes…:
I am tied for first place with Jim Rowson’s Moonshine Still and Eric Mueller’s light house. Dave T can figure out how to score this.
Third goes to John Passaro’s Caboose Service Facility
