Every round we're going to present you with a photograph of a scene. It might be real life, it might be a model. The challenge is to replicate it as closely as you can. Fear not, we'll drop a few hints along the way so you're not 'going in blind'. At the end of each round, we'll be awarding model railway prizes to he or she who produced what we feel is the closest effort.

Observe the rusting and number closely - do you have a stand-out weathering technique for this? Our lucky winner will get a Dapol's new model of North British Type 2, D6129:
