t was good to return to the San Fran- ciso area for the Bay Area Prototype Meet on June 23rd. This one-day


meet is filled with great modeling ener- gy, and modelers from as far away as Southeastern Pennsylvania (Butch Eyler) and Northwestern New Jersey (me) were there. Of course, most folks were from one gas tank away places, but both the Seattle and Los Angeles metro areas were represented. What a day!


BAPM 2012


can use here, and most of them not only came out decent but you can usu- ally see the trucks as being more than black levitation fields under the cars and locomotives. (A bit of dust and grime will not only add realism to models, they help make the trucks show up in pictures. The room, a cafe- teria in an elementary school, had a wall of windows and good lighting. As I sorted through these photos, I discovered I had taken a lot of work-in- progress pictures. Hmmm. A theme. So, this report is built around unfinished and unpainted models. We always claim that RPM’s are for sharing, with learning and fun coming out of that, so here goes. What better way to show how things are put together?—BILL S.


There were two very special models on dis- play at this year’s BAPM, locomotives that were under construction by Gordon Can- non when he died in 2006. He started Can- non & Company in the 1980’s with a few EMD long hood doors and developed a pre- mier line of HO diesel detailing parts that changed the hobby.


is a BL20-2,


EMD’s turbocharged 567, 2,000-h.p. unsuc- cessful attempt to enter the rebuild market in 1992. Everything you see in gray except the sideframes is a Cannon part.


Below it


is a GP39-2 with what could be a Life-Like GP38-2 long hood, walkway and pilots.
