    Not been able to do much lately, but I have been accepted for my first exhibition at the very end of April 2019. Appropriately enough it's the Hornby Railway Collector's Association 50th anniversary show at Stoneleigh, great to have a proper deadline now.

    If a miracle happens and this stupid idea is shortlisted for Railex then I'll be ready!

    Tony,

    Power to your elbow, we've all won this one - and then the winner will be announced...! Over in the 'other place' there are different entries (also some duplicates of what is here) so there are lots of models that wouldn't otherwise have seen the light of day...

    Wise words Mick, completely agree. If this compo results in more layouts at exhibition then we are all winners.

    I've not got a login at the 'other place', doesn't seem that friendly there.

    Have to admit Tony, I'm just a lurker there.....mostly just accessing through the 2mmSA website links on the home page. There's a super video diary by Nick Mitchell on chassis construction and, it too, now has a link from the 2mil home page.

    Thanks Mick, I'll take a look. I doubt it will tempt me to rejoin the 2mm Association, sadly. I've now got so many 7mm wagons, including my first JLTRT/MM1 kit plus a Dapol 08, I can't imagine going that small again. I'm forgetting the four Wrenn 08s for this project too.

    I do really respect and admire what the association has achieved over the years, there's a lot of scale associations out there that do not seem to achieve anywhere near the amount the 2mm has achieved. The shere amount and breadth of products they produce puts even the major manufacturers to shame sometimes.

    Tony,

    Whatever we do as individuals it's all part of the rich tapestry of railway modelling life, but most of all we should be enjoying it.

    From what I see here, I think we are.

    Thanks
