What is the Tiny Model Challenge ?

Seeing as some of us like to build small models, I've created the Tiny Model Challenge. Feel free to post build diaries of any tiny models.

What is the Tiny Model Challenge ?

Postby Mark » Sun Sep 15, 2013 7:40 am

Seeing as one or two of us have masochistic tendencies when it comes to building small models, I thought I'd create the Tiny Model Challenge. Sort of an on-going competition with no winners and no prizes, but you can win buckets full of bragging rights !

There is only one rule. The models must be built by yourself. Other than that, anything goes. I'll leave it up to you as to what you think tiny is.
Cheers
Mark

Good Idea Mark!

Its a pity I have just started on the other end of the size spectrum with my Supersize Dauntless but what the heck - variety is the spice of life so will be joining you as soon as I can find a suitable subject :D :D :D
So many models, so little time!

Thank you Mark :D

I've found a 1/700 figure set to go with my Corsairs, as a bonus the set also has some wheel chocks.

Ah, but 1/72 doesn't really count as tiny.......... Unless it's a scale model of an ant :laughing-rolling:

TINY MODELS

Postby MODENAMAN » Wed Nov 26, 2014 10:20 pm

Just to make it clear I did not build these but they are brass 1/700 train items. They obviously don't actually run but very detailed
Thought they would be interesting to you.
Scary - makes my 1:220 Z scale trains look huge
