Wanted to remind folks of a contest we’ve designed to reward the talent we see displayed often on this Forum: the M.T.H. RailTown Kitbashing contest.
Build an O Gauge structure or scene using at least two walls from any RailTown building, plus any other model structures or materials you like, and you could win a Premier or RailKing locomotive of your choice, up to a retail value of $500.
The contest has two divisions: Professional, for structures built by someone who makes all or a portion of their income doing modeling for others, and Hobbyist, for modelers who build their own structures just for fun. A prize locomotive will be awarded in both divisions.
Entries will be judged on architectural attractiveness, build quality, and above all creativity, both in design and use of materials. Designs may be realistic or whimsical, and can range from a recognizable RailTown building with added details to an extreme kitbash using some RailTown elements.
Entry deadline is April 30, 2017. For contest rules and entry form, go to http://mthtrains.com/2017kitbash
