QUOTE (Valenta125 @ 12 Jun 2013, 07:56) *
I think more people didn't enter because it's a waste of time, sorry. Most of us on here have our own ways of modelling, and our own methods of weathering. Also, a drinks can is an unrealistic item for a competition because the paint doesn't adhere well to the metal surface, the cylindrical shape doesn't lend itself well to any 'directional' weathering, and transfers to show a particular railway company are hard to come by of that size. Imho, a 10t open mineral wagon would have been a good contender, metal or planked - they're cheap, and you've applied your base skills to something you can use afterwards.

There is a new project in hand that will be announced in due course.

The members who did bother should be getting their complementry weathering kits this week & thanks from Richard & myself for the efforts.

Members often ask for competitions & suchlike & when we do put effort into organising things end up with a poor response.

Anyway, I closing & unpinning the thread now - thanks again to those that took part.
