THE 'SEE IT/MAKE IT' CHALLENGE: ROUND THREE


Recommended Posts

It's weeds galore in this latest installment of our modelling challenge - but do you have what it takes to make a convincing scene?

53958 + 54239 of set LO297 depart Manchester Victoria on August 13, 1992. 54239 would be withdrawn on October 5, that year, with 53958 becoming ADB977809 and used in set LO906 on sandite and route learning until October, 1995.

We're going to take you a little off-piste this round. The above photograph shows a delightful collection of British Rail weeds growing around the bay platform tracks at Manchester Victoria in 1992. Don't worry, we're not interested in a model of Manchester Victoria, and the site has changed a great deal since, but we'd like to see if you can model weeds around track.

So, do you have what it takes to create a variety of weeds like this? Perhaps you've already made some for your layout? If so, we'd like to see them lineside on your layout on a branchline, or siding perhaps, like the above, but make sure they don't get stuck in the gears of your locomotives! The creator who we feel made the best effort wins a Graham Farish Class 108 (371-505) in Network South East livery.

One problem with the description of the first picture - "That isn't Manchester Piccadilly "  perhaps if you move across the city to "Manchester Victoria" East end it would be correct!

SEE IT/MAKE IT CHALLENGE: ROUND THREE WINNER

We've received some great entries to round three of our See it/Make it Challenge. Deciding a winner was difficult for us, but we managed to form a concensus, based on the merits of each entry. It was great to see such a varied interpretation of the challenge – experienced modellers and newcomers taking part to share their modelling skills. We've selected a number of entries and would like to thank all whom took part.

Well done Mick. 

 

Nice to see members of my extended family popping in. 

 

Any involvement sheep have with railways is to be applauded. 

 

Top stuff.

Thanks to all whom've taken part so far. The next See it/Make it challenge hasn't gone live just yet, and though I've an idea on something that could be quite appealing, perhaps members of this community have a photograph of something they feel would make for a great challenge? If so, please send it to [email protected] Stay tuned for the next challenge!
