    Keith,

    When you try to upload, does it take a long time, and eventually fail?

    Try re-sizing your photos to below 1mb (below 150kb would be even better). The forum image file size limit is 100kb, and will re size anything below 1mb to fit, however anything above 1mb in file size will fail.

    *psst. I have finals until 6PM tomorrow which may or may not affect when the official times up post gets made* (ahem* it wont be until after 6pm. *ah-choo*)

    ;)

    That's possible.
    Will have to double check file sizes.
    Will readjust as necessary.

    I agree that there were a lot of great entries, but Scott's did stand out. Great to see some outstanding work from a fellow N-scale modeler!
