My challenge build for 2018 will be the Monster Modelworks Brick Yard Tower.  I plan on starting with the base kit, but will be adding interior detail among other, yet to be determined, modifications.  I want to thank Dan - RAYMO - for getting this challenge started - our second annual. This build will find a home on my Superior & Seattle Railroad.

Next step - find out where I stored the kit. ;) :-[   It's okay I have two days until the official start.

I'm looking forward to this. I have the kit already but building another of their small kits presently.  Will be following closely.

Thank you, for all the words of encouragement - this should be a fun build.  An update: I found where I stored the kit and some of the interior details I plan on using.  I will be officially starting the kit next week as per our official start date. I need to clear off some bench space. ;)

John,


I believe this will be a first on the forum, I don't remember anyone building one of Jimmy's kits before. He does do nice work burning wood, I like his detail pieces, lintels, sills, corners, and copings to change the appearance of a stock kit like a City Classics Brownstone. I have one of these kits also sitting on a shelf and that is probably where it will be for quite awhile.


Anyway, I will also be following your progress.

Donato, Mark, and Bob


Thanks for following along.  Jimmy's laser work is going to play a major role in my future scratch building projects. I bought four of his kits this past year to get some practice with the techniques required to make wood look like stone. This will be my first build with his material. I also plan on using Jimmy's stone, brick, and concrete block material for foundations on many of my future builds.
