Would it be a good idea to have a section in the photo gallery called "Winter Builds 2022" where we can post photos of our winter projects?
 

Consider it done.

Now I know why I voted for you!
I don't really have much to post but some of the members have some impressive projects going on that I look forward to seeing.

I added some pics. Is there a way to allow for larger files? It was not letting me upload directly from my iphone.

In order to post photos I take with my phone, I download them from iCloud then use the Snipping tool in Windows to take a snip of the photo and save it. The saved photo is small enough in size to get uploaded.

I was able to trim the files one-by-one on my computer. No big deal if changing the file-size limit is not possible. I just thought if it was easy, it would make the process a lot easier. Modern phones tend to take larger pics and mine were 4 MB. If the limit were 10 MB, it would be much easier.

We just popped some pics in the build gallery. The #1 project was to get our work areas sorted out. We sorta fell back into the hobby without much prep and we really weren't organized about it. My downstairs workbench was a mess after transitioning from plastic modeling to 1/6th scale WW2 figure work to scale dinosaurs (and probably a few things in between). In the end it was optimized for one thing: chaos. Meanwhile Deb didn't have a work bench set up, so she claimed the kitchen table, which had to get periodically "set aside" for that pesky human activity known as "eating". So we were on different floors, sharing tools, and neither of us had an ideal workspace, so once the season ended that became out priority.

We finally got things finished to the point we could resume building in the first week of January and we're both building like demons. My pre-season build list is subject to change on whim, but this is the current lineup:

- Launch Pad Perseus (done and in finishing)
- Estes Fusion X-25 (done and in finishing)
- Estes Jayhawk (in progress)
- Zvezdotchka ACM (in progress)
- Estes Antar
- Estes Space Transporter America
- Estes Rigel 3 (clone)
- Estes Gemini Titan refit (using all new markings from Stickershock23, et al)

Deb's list is similarly in flux, but looks kinda like this:

- Estes Curvilinear (in progress)
- Estes Lynx (in progress)
- Fliskits Overdrive (in progress)
- Zvezdotchka ACM (in progress)
- Estes Skywriter (in progress)
- Semroc Taurus
- Estes Twin Factor (done steampunk style)
- Estes Solar Flare
- Estes Quinstar
- Starship Vega (clone)
- Apogee Flying Machine
