I discussed this with a few people at the EXPO and figured this would be a good time to ask.  My thoughts were it would run from New Years day to April 15th, Tax Day here in the states. 6"X 6"building or smaller, but if you want to build a building flat that's 2"X 12" or a building that's 3"X 8" that's OK too. Detail, modify, add lighting on to it as much as you want or build it straight out of the box. Doesn't have to be a diorama, but if you want too that's fine if you want to go that far. We all have plenty of these small kits stuffed in a box or on a shelf, so lets get some build threads going on this forum and help winter go by a little bit faster.  If there's plenty of interest, I'll start a thread on the Contest Thread Board. Let me know what you think.... Raymo

It sounds good to me, I'm in. I need a signal tower for my Eagles Nest Yard.

There sure seems to be more pondering than committing going on here. Where are all the modelers?

Count me in.  I may get a late start as my bench is tied up with rolling stock right now.

Welcome aboard Whiskyriver.  :D


I'm still pondering the contest.  I have one build in progress and several more lined up.  Most are too big to fit in the allotted time frame even if I started one right now (but I'd rather finish up what's on my workbench first).  I'll keep pondering though.   ::)

I have pondered. Searching my stash of kits initially revealed the majority to be FSM, SRMW and FOS limited editions and way to big for the challenge size-wise. However I have uncovered a Bar Mills "1 of 500" kit which having researched shingled structures in Norway could be re-purposed.

So I'm in too.
