Club Diarama Competition

Posted by fodmrc on 21/01/2014

railway-underpass1The model railway club have decided to run an internal competition within its membership.

The competition is to build a diorama scene of any railway associated activity.

The only constraints are:-

  • In N Gauge (2mm) scale it cannot be larger than 144 square inches
  • In OO Gauge (4mm) scale cannot be larger than 288 square inches
  • In O Gauge (7mm) scale it cannot be larger than 576 square inches.

In any of these scales the diorama can be smaller than the maximum size, and it must not overhang the base footprint of the model.

The completed dioramas are to be displayed at the Baptist Church in Coleford on Easter Monday, the day of the Transport Rally.

The dioramas will be judged for their finish, standard of modelling and general appeal, with a modest prize in each category for the winner, and an overall prize for the one judged to be best overall.

There is no entry fee for the competition, but if a diorama is going to be submitted you must inform the committee secretary by the 1st April that you will be bringing an entry.
