    Ok .... it's another cameo.

    If there is one thing that makes any industry, it's the people. So what I want is a small cameo, no more than eight inches square depicting a scene which could be anything at all.

    Men having their tea prior to their next turn of duty, a maintainence scene, absolutely anything.

    The main emphasis is on detail and quirkiness. You can use anything you want provided it can fit the overall size. In order to make use of the dimension it may be that you make use of " suggestive " detail where the full size wont fit. Ie, a smaller detail that suggests the surrounding of a bigger scene. Extra consideration will be given to this when judging.

    This competition is open to everyone including the moderators. One prize as stated so one winner.

    I'll set a closing date of the end of June ( last Saturday 12.00 midnight UK time ) as I am aware that the lock down competition has been scheduled for the end of may.

    Any questions ..... please ask away. I'll update with any clarifications as we go.

    Cheers and good luck with your chance of winning this excellent kit.

    Now this is an interesting challenge Toto... I would like to have a crack at this one if that's all right. I'm going down the route of suggestive art.

    2 x Drury shunters arrived in the post this morning.

    I've had a quick look .... you get a lot of bang for your buck with these. Well worth the money.

    Pictures later today.
