The Model Village Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge is the second of one of our ‘Big Challenges’. The first one, in 2012, was the Hornby O Gauge Trains layout.

This time we tried to build a model village, with all models to the same scale, so that we could construct a complete model village between us. The suggested scale was ½” to 1’, or 1:24. That meant that a typical front door to a house would be 3½” x 1½”. It was also 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 our Secretary didn’t think that they had many entries. We did better!
