The 50th anniversary AGM of the 3mm Society was held at Swindon last weekend. I was extremely pleased at the reception that my entry for the ’50’ challenge – 50 x 50 shades of grey- received. I was especially pleased by the comments of Maggie and Gordon Gravett who were the guest judges and also all the smiles that the diorama put on people’s faces. The effect of LED lighting gave the whole scene a feeling of a typical dull, grey day in a misty industrial setting where there is little if any colour. The reactions were totally not what I expected.
I was also pleased to be runner up in the Tony Birch Award competition for locomotives with my model of the LSWR Metropolitan Tank, or Plymouth Tank as it was known. Construction of it was recorded earlier in this blog.
