Christmas Challenge 2013
The Spanner Challenge
The Spanner Christmas Challenge 2013 is to build a Meccano model according to the following conditions:
- The only rule is the model must fit through the official gauge in all three orientations. The gauge is made from four 5½ inch strips bolted together to make a square. The corners and strengthened with corner brackets - see attached photograph. In other words the model must fit inside a virtual cube that measures 4½ x 4½ x 4½ inches.
The rules were suggested by Ralph Laughton.
Post your entries on Spanner or directly to the Christmas Challenge 2013 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).
