Guildex 2018 The O Gauge Premier Show

Last weekend I was demonstrating my Silhouette Cutter at Guildex for a couple of days. I also, as has been my habit for the last few years, entered a few items in the Modelling Competition. I had three entries in the rolling stock section and to my surprise and delight two of them took 2nd and 3rd places – First was quite rightly won by a full breakdown train.

Rather foolishly on the day I clipped the opening end door shut on the NBR wagon so it’s best feature was lost on the judges. As it turned out if it had done something it would have only displaced one of the other entries so nothing lost.

Guildex 2018 Highly Commended in the Rolling Stock section of the Modelling Competition

The Highly Commended entry is now in the small adds because being in BR livery it doesn’t really fit with my grouping era models.
