The NRM Summer Fun A4 Challenge - September 1st, 2007 hurry!
Posted: Tue Jul 31, 2007 8:55 pm
I've been inundated with requests to run another competition
The theme this time is a small diorama up to the size of a sheet of A4 paper...it can be any scale, and era or prototype and any part of the railway - an embankment, a fuelling station etc, so long as you can place the finished model on a sheet of A4.
The competition will run until September 1st, 2007, so you've got quite a bit of time to work on it.
Mod edit - Thought it best to put in your end Date for the competition good luck every one!

Now, do I break into my Tamiya 1/48 Bf109 or Not?...
Or that 1/48 Academy P-47...
Or that rather nice Tamiya Sherman Mk.I,,,,

I doubt any of those would fit on A4
The Sherman might

I'll see if I can rustle something up - though I've just moved into a house so I have furniture to buy, boxes to unpack, and stuff to sort out. Plus I've not even got past this stage with my pizza:

I'm in the boxes situation - everything is packed
apart from an open-top wagon, a coach, a Bachamnn class 20 and my track. Also a controller. And a six-pack of Walker's Steak and Onion crisps.
Heck, I'm desperate.

I've got an idea, it's more of an enthusiasm boosting mini-project, but I'll enter it for the Challenge. When does it need to be in by because I'm going on holiday soon

D'oh! Where's the idiot button when you need it eh?...

I have cut out my baseboard and painted it
Whilst waiting for it to dry, I did a little mock up of the track plan and buildings
Feeling pleased with myself â€“ I actually expect to get this finished

Having just re-read the title description, I presume this has to be railway related, non?
That kind of smashes my build to pieces, or does it? I was intending to have a small railway line in the build though, does that count? If I don't include it (which I wasn't intending), can I still enter?
