Requirements

The intent of this category is for you to demonstrate "the prototypical rendering of scenic effects from the ground up." The type of scenery that you choose to model is entirely up to you.

Requirements

When you think of "structures" don't just think of buildings and bridges. Structures are just about anything on the layout that was man made and doesn't fit into one of the other Master Builder categories.

I'm hoping some of you have visited the convention recently, and took plenty of pictures, videos etc. Those of you who did, could you share some here or send me the links so I can update the website front pages with the latest on what we've been doing, and show the world what we're up to. Cheers, Koos

Re: bent axle
