Brilliant stuff, Stu.

No more suggestions (maybe one or two little bits of paper in the ticket rack?), I think you've done a grand job.
Won't be much competition I would think.

Thanks gents for your comments.
Phill, I'm still not convinced I could model in T gauge, even 2mm would be a challenge!

My entry will be #21, and having actually seen some of the previous years' entries, the standard is very high. I can only hope it's good enough.

But even if it's not a winner, it's been a good exercise in detailing,
something I can take with me to future projects.
(I have just found a clear plastic box some business cards came in...)

I have to admit I did like the idea of the engine just peeking in at the side, but it seems to have disappeard now.

OK, just 3/4" of the front, but I thought, yes I know what thought did...... But perhaps the end of a coach or van?

Only second, huh? :sad:

The judges obviously don't know what they're talking about.

Well done, Stu. There's a lot of work in a small space there. :doublethumb I like it.

Hi stu

After this one why not try a peanut butter jar lid? These should give you some ideas!

Well done Stu. 

A certificate is forthcoming from the magazine?  ( or a big fat cheque?)

Thanks for all your comments !
Jim, those models are amazing, not sure I'm that good yet.
Sol, I think I'm due a reasonable voucher to spend at Mevagissy, but am not 100% sure as I've heard nothing officially, only what's in the Modeller.

Well done Stu - reading through the thread again, one realises what a huge amount of detail you've built into it never mind the vision to have come up with the scene in the first place. 

It's difficult to imagine something like this from concept to completion and you're a very worthy winner.  The first prize winner must have been quite amazing. :roll::roll:

Petermac, thanks for your comments.
The first prize was awarded to a model of 'Brief Encounter', all done in shades of grey, to look like the film.
I've really enjoyed making this. The inspiration was partly from Bodmin General, plus a desire to show more than one scene in the same model.
It was also a challenge to see if it could be done without looking too silly -to be awarded 2nd prize is a real surprise and I'm really quite pleased.
Stu

Stu,

Just caught up with this thread -  congratulations on coming second in the competition with your excellent modelling - I struggle to get things looking half right on my layout  never mind the limitations of an empty chocolate box.
