Christmas Challenge 2014
The Spanner Challenge
The Spanner Christmas Challenge 2014 is to build a Meccano model according to the following conditions:
- Any subject
- Model to fit through a 10" square gauge in all three orientations. The three orientations are longways, sideways and looking vertically down (on the model). No squeezing through diagonally with very thin models, for example.
- Meccano or repro parts may be used
- Modified parts allowed
The rules were first described by Peter Harwood, subsequently clarified by him.
Post your entries on Spanner or directly to the Christmas Challenge 2014 gallery (or to your personal gallery and send an email to request it be moved). Only one primary photo is permitted in the Christmas Challenge Gallery, but further photographs, videos etc can be posted to the "Extra photos" folder underneath. Remember to refer to these in your description of the model.
All viewers may place a "rating" on each model in the Christmas Challenge Gallery, rating the model from 1 to 10 by clicking on the appropriate number underneath the thumbnail.
You may "rate" as many or as few models as you wish.
You can only "rate" each model once, but you may change that rating at any time. An arrow underneath a thumbnail shows the rating you have given to that model.
Every now and then, the models in the gallery will be sorted in order of their current rating.
Anonymous rating is welcome, but anonymous ratings don't affect the overall score as significantly.
The Christmas Challenge closes at midnight on Christmas Eve your local time. The winner will receive global accolade (well, at least until next year).
