Models built for the 'Model Village' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This Secretary's Challenge is another "Big Challenge". The first one, in 2012, was the Hornby O gauge layout.

This time I think we could try to build a model village, with all models to the same scale, so that we could construct a complete model village between us. I suggest that the scale should be ½" to 1', or 1:24. That means that a typical front door to a house would be 3½" x 1½". It's also been suggested that we could have some vehicles to the same scale to go with the buildings.

They tried something similar at Meccanuity a few years ago, but I don't think that they had many entries. Let's hope that we can do better!

If we get enough entries, we could recreate the model village for the annual show in October.

Built by Brian Leach

This 100 year old mid-terrace actually has two chimneys but would look wrong like this in a model. The front door is on the side because the adjoining houses are offset.
