1⁄1Modeling a Photograph campaign
The “Modeling a Photograph” campaign did just that – enlistees were asked to find a photo and try to reproduce it with scale models. This meant dioramas for the most part, and produced some excellent work. Running from 6 June 2010 to 6 March 2011, it saw 35 people sign up and 10 actually win the coveted ribbon. There were 206 posts with 158 pictures over seven pages, generating 16,959 views. These members (in alphabetical order) and their models won a ribbon:
- Barkingdigger, with a model of M4 “H-2 Hurricane” being loaded for D-Day in 1:35 made of scrap-box parts from Italeri, Tasca, Tamiya, and AFV Club.
- Curseoftheundead, with a 1:35 Panther.
- eMan, with a VK3002 (MAN) Panther prototype in 1:35 from Cromwell Models.
