BRM Cake Box Challenge - List of entries


The BRM Cake Box Challenged. Sponsored by Humbrol.

At BRM, we love building railway models. In this hobby, getting your hands dirty is a huge part of the fun. With that in mind, we thought it's time to run a model making competition. We didn't ask anyone to build a layout, that would be far too much commitment. No, we asked modellers to build a scene that would fit inside a cake box.

The rules are simple:

  • Entrants must build a diorama that can fit in a standard 8-inch square cardboard cake box – the sort available from shops that sell cookery items.
  • The diorama can be any scale, any era, any prototype, in fact, anything the builder chooses. The only condition is that it must include at least two railway related items. Anything from locomotives to a tail lamp.

The winner will be decided by a public vote later in the year. For now, here are the entrants - this list will be added to as new entries come in.

More details and discussion can be found on the RMweb forum.
