Another year over, so what's up for next year

 It's been quite a year
Started with a diagnosis of prostate cancer. Which was taken care of in April, and my gratitude to the spectacular healthcare professionals that took care of me. I just had my 3rd PSA test post surgery and my levels remain "undetectable" which is brilliant.
I contracted Covid at the St Louis RPM. That was a fun 11 hour drive home feeling wretched.
The post infection symptoms linger still, but we persevere.

The results are that many projects have been delayed. Hard to model when you're laid up.
But new things are coming
The Penn Central G47 and the X79 are ready to go, just waiting on decals from Cartograph.We're supposed to see those in January
The pilot models are done, as you can see here

These 4 kits will be on the website as soon as the decals are in hand.

Also on the workbench

Finally, the pilot model for the Soo Line stock car.
A mere 10 years in the making.
Everything for this kit, but a couple of photoetchings, is in hand, castings is proceeding and hopefully by February, kits will be available on the website

The other fun thing being worked on is a trio of rebuilt boxcars.
I have a real soft spot for rebuilt boxcars, and the models I have coming, I hope will appeal to the community as well.
I'm not going to offer further details just yet, need to make a bit more progress.

So Happy New Year to all
Thanks for your support
Happy Modeling
