And these Mike Dudley gondolas are all current or coming-soon kits from Modeler's Choice. I bought a couple of them.

I always say I'm not a clinic person but I did go to Mike's clinic on building the gondolas, because I have a number of MC kits I haven't done anything with yet, and I need a push. And Mike Rose's U18B clinic (Guilford/MEC). While I don't need a U18B, there were a lot of techniques as well as the fact that he was modifying the Atlas U23B drive -- which is similar, although more involved, than what I just did with my U28Bs.

There's always one crazy model, and I vote for Brian Banna's model of an NREX prototype kitbash. It's an SD40T-2 that has had the entire long hood replaced with one from an SD40, leaving a porch on the back. A regular SD40-2 back porch can accommodate a 4-player poker game. This thing could handle a pool table quite handily.

Nice photos.

Have you got any showing who's who. I regularly talk to these fine modellers but don't know what they look like.

Yup, tony made it in my photos, I sat right by him so i got a first hand look at all of the work he put into that unit...All the break piping, and the harness was custom made out of brass stock with pieces of styrene to represent certain valves etc., and the remote control stand is held on with 2way tape so it is removable....In my opinion that was best in show.
I had my stuff there, but doesn't hold a candle in my opinion.

Did you see him give himself an unscheduled "tuberculosis test" when he went to move it for my photo? Those little antennae were scale thickness... and sharp!

Me?

Did any of you attend my NYC Michigan Branch clinic Saturday evening? What'd you think? I know that I sure had fun giving it.
