Cake Box is back

If you were inspired by yesterdays Hornby 100mm challenge, you'll be pleased to know that the Cake Box Challenge is back to relieve you of lockdown boredom. 

There has been a lot of demand for this, partly in the form of fridge magnets, and with the return of lockdown, it seems the right time to give a competition I'm very proud of, another go. With a bit of luck, having a focus for some modelling with take people's minds off the news. I know I need a bit of that!

The rules are the same as in the past - the model must fit in a 8 inch square Cake Box and contain at least two railway items. We've added another on to fit the mood of the times too - two items of rubbish must be incorporated into the model. Exactly what you class as "rubbish" is up to you. 

There's more detail, including a video, over on RMweb.

Looks like Justin at Scale Model Scenery has already reintroduced his Cake box diorama baseboard kit!

I have to confess, I still have the baseboard awaiting a diorama from last time when you were giving them away at Digitrains!
I do have some ideas, time is not on my side right now with still being at work, but I want to try and complete at least one. Incorporating 2 pieces of rubbish should be interesting....

Luke, thanks I meant to see if that was still available. Not that I'm tempted

Hi James, for a long while there weren't. I wonder if they were rapidly introduced, just for Phil :)
