Cakebox challenge

Caption competitions, competitions run by The Management (ahem) or just a challenge you'd like to set your fellow 'boxers, this is where to put them!

If anyone finds a challengney type thread elsewhere can you PM me the number and I'll carefully copy it over into this forum.

If anyone's wondering why I've done this ... wait and see! :-)

Cakebox challenge

Postby PeterH » Wed Nov 15, 2017 8:58 am

RMWeb is running a challenge to build a layout that will fit in a cakebox. A cakebox is 8 x 8 x 6 inches outside, so it needs to be slightly less to fit in the box, say 200 x 200 x 150 mm max. Deadline is late next year.

I’m thinking something small like this will get me modelling again; I’ve been spending too long removing the weathering from my 1:1 scale model house, to return it to almost factory fresh. I haven’t made a simplicity sidings, and I’m thinking of a layout that will unfold to be 400 x 100; two tracks will just fit.

Here’s a like to the topic; the second post has the rules:

Oops, the RMWeb website seems to be down. Choked up on sticky cake?

Needs to stop procrastinating and start modelling
