Finally, I think there may be the glimmerings of hope for a workflow that's not too onerous for contributing to the wiki.
It goes something like this:
Build your model Edit
count it up and photograph it
Upload pictures to flickr Edit
Use whatever scheme you like for organizing yoyr own pictures - Sets, Collections or tags, however you must use some meaning ful tags to be able to find the picture again from wikia
Take a break Edit
In particular, you can leave your house and go to a cafe (or the office), you have no further need of the Geomag or your camera.
Tag your pictures with the Creative Commons licence Edit
You need to do this so that wikia will pick them up
Upload your pictures to wikia Edit
This is the new step that wikia have just introduced: using the tags you assigned you can find your pctures and upload them to wikia - they are created with the name the same as the flickr title you chose, and all the housekeeping is done for you.
Create a new wikia page Edit
Use the model template Edit
for the main part of the article
Use the image gallery Edit
for alternative views
Leave the article open Edit
for others to add different build versions
