Thank you to all who chimed in on the previous thread gauging interest on the idea of a buddy build and for the kind words concerning the good old days of the Token Build and Blog. With Vulcan's help I hope to be able to get that site up and running and once again use it as an archive for these community showcases of talent and hard work.
I'm starting this new thread in the hopes of giving interested builders an opportunity to post their top three ideas for the upcoming project. Keep in mind the following when considering your choices:
1) Build has to be completed in a month's timeframe
2) Structure or scenic project must be generic enough in nature that it could be adapted to fit any layout, theme or time period
3) The majority of the build has to be scratchbuilt, meaning aftermarket parts preferably at the minimum
4) Choice of project is something of a skill level that is reasonable enough so that no "special" talent (electrical) ,equipment (soldering), or second job ($$$) is required to complete
Sound reasonable? Please feel free to discuss any other possible considerations to the mix.
So after ten years of consideration here are my three ideas for a February Token Build. I like to use the "Goldilocks Rule" when making picks ... one that's small, one that's big, and one that's just right
1) small: a kiosk
2) big: a rural farm house
3) just right: a small barn
