Time for the last Cake Box round of 2019

 

 

 

It's time for round 4...

 

As ever, the rules are simple:

  • The model must fit in a standard 8-inch square cake box. 
  • It must include two railway items

 

You can interpret the theme any way you like.

 

It's up to you if you want to start a build thread, but we'll be calling for entries (3 photos + 200 words) at the start of January.

 

The prize is £100 of Humbrol products!

Now just to find a clean cakebox - I do have one with a slice of cake remaining in it, but there's icing stuck to the box.  Not sure if it is 8" by 8" either....Now to find the back of an envelope to plan.

Afternoon Phil. I am a new member of the forum and I really like the idea of the forum having a series of cakebox challenges. 

There are some brilliant entries throughout the different themes. It’s a great way for me to learn and enjoy the different levels of model making.

At the moment I am just at the learning stage but I hope in the future I can tackle one of the forums challenges.

Hi Kev,

 

That is exactly what I have used them for.  I missed out last year but have had a go at all 3 this year and used them to try out techniques before using them on my main layout.  I have had a go at static grass, weathering, using Slaters plastic brick, etched brass and 3D printing.  It is a great way to learn, and never mind the competition side of it, you should have a go anyway.  You will find a friendly bunch here, always willing to make constructive suggestions and help.

regards,     Chris

The cakebox challenge sounds interesting. On my layout I found a place for 20 * 20 module (here we use centimeters) and decided to try my hand on Cornish mine. I use my imagination to tell me how an old mine might work..

I believe 8" x 8" is designated as a maximum - I used 7" x 7" in round 1 without any trouble.

Of course, you could build 4 small dioramas at 4" x 4" in the allowable space.

There is a 6" height limit in a standard cakebox.
