Cake Box on tour - Digitrains
An excellent day at Digitrains yesterday with Nicole and team. I arrived and was shown my table in the garage - complete with tea facilities and biscuits!
I'd brought along my first two boxes along with a third I'd planned to work on during the day. On the table already were a couple of model built by the in-house scenery expert Paul, and a pile of MDF square diorama bases to be given away free.
Once the doors opened, we had plenty of interest and loads of chat. 1pm arrived before I noticed and the rest of the day went pretty quickly too. There are several people newly converted to cake box building. Several are working on layouts already and see the benefits of taking a little modelling holiday with a small side project. Others just want to try a new technique and see the benefits of working in a small space - if it goes wrong you've not wasted much time or money.
I'mn going to lean on Paul to describe the methods used on his models in a future BRM.
While in the shop, I couldn't resist a good look at the fantastic model of Lincoln Central station being built in the back. It's a bit large for a cake box though!
Anyway, there are bases left so if you are anywhere near Lincoln, drop in and I'm sure they will be happy to let you have one.
