    With all the buzz around John Wiffen's (Scalescenes) new kit 'LY01 Industrial Boxfile Kit', Toto has announced a New Competition and it starts now...!

    This competition is based around the new Scalescenes layout kit in a box. So ..... yes ..... it does need to be a box file layout as the kit was intended for.

    There is one prize up for grabs which is a Heljan OO Scale Class 05 Hunslet locomotive in BR green with wasp stripes.

    Now, the important bit.....

    THE RULES...


    1. The kit can be constructed in any scale which has been marketed on the Scalescene site and for what the kit has been intended for sale, N gauge and any variant of 4mm, ie OO, P4, EM etc.

    2. You must stick with the parts as made available with the kit but they can be altered. For example,e, if you want to insert another door opening or window somewhere ...... feel free.

    3. You can only use the doors and windows as supplied with the kit.

    4. If you have the ability to change the colours of the kit through your own software medium, ...... that's allowed but only the colours, not the printed detail etc. The name of the game here is to encourage a bit imagination in the use of the kit parts made available.

    5. You can completely change the layout of the diorama as long as you only use the parts available. You could for example cut parts shorter or use multiple repetitive printed parts to create a longer wall or roof section etc.

    6. You can weather the buildings etc with the addition of powders and flocks etc. You can also add up to a maximum of 10 detailing parts, no more. A single part would be 1 x figure or 1 x vehicle or 1 x barrel or 1 x pallet etc.

    7. The competition will end on the last day of March.

    8. Anybody can enter with only one submission per member. The usual rules apply, we will be judging on the model itself, the quality of the progress post etc and individuality / inguinuity of the submission.

    So, 'thems the rules...' If you have any questions ....... please ask away.

    You can purchase the kit from Scalescenes here :

    Cheers,

    Toto.

    Comments and questions so far...

    Ianvt asked : Does it include a 'sector plate' or a thingy ..

    Reply : I'll allow the use of a sector plate. That will allow a bit more operational potential. It's not necessary though...

    Charost asked : There is a sector plate in this kit but it's outside the box file.

    Reply : You can feel free to add a sector plate if you wish to build one. I'm feeling generous. ...... must be the time of year. I'm getting soft. :facepalm:

    I've been looking for a reason to buy this kit since it came out! I have just downloaded it so now need to crack on with reading the instructions and deciding on a plan of attack.

    I’m to busy with my plank layout as this and work takes a lot of my time up. But it will be great to see what our fellow forum members can model from this boxfile.:tophat:

    Do buffer stops count as one of the 10 additions?

    Ah cool!

    May be worth a clarification on what is not counted... such as lights etc.

    Mind you, I’ve got to build it yet. The box I found was the wrong size had to buy a new one! :hammer:

    Lights would count as one item. I'll let you have as many as you like with a count of 1 item.

    I'm feeling generous.

    If you have purchased the kit from which it comes ....... you can print it off until your hearts content. If you have received the kit by other means other than buying it ...... I suspect it would be considered copyright infringement which I cannot condone.

    Given the price of John's kits, I don't think it's asking too much to buy it and help support his business and aid the continuing development of other products.

    I think John has something to suit everyone and I hope we all do our best to support him.

    I look forward to seeing the finished articles that his kits are very capable of producing.

    Good luck with the build ..... :tophat:

    No problem. I bought my PDF files directly from Scalescenes for €12.12 (or £9.99). :thumbup:

    Excellent. It's nice to see some business being directed John's way by our forum members. I'll look forward to seeing what you come up with using the kit. ...... remember, a nice sharp knife for clean cuts.

    Good luck in the competition. :tophat:
