My idea is take a photo, anything anywhere and do your best to represent it in a model weather it be a diorama or special livery of a specific vehicle. The final reveal would include a copy of the original photo and a photo of your model taken in the same manor!

Just my humble suggestion.

That is a good idea. My local scale model club actually included a category in the annual scale model show
that gave an award for the best picture of a model using a natural background. if done well, sometimes it is difficult to tell
a model from an actual airplane/vehicle.

Hmm, to be honest I wasn't too keen on this idea initially but the more I've though about it the more I like it.

It could be a really good GB - a nice change from the usual build a particular type, scale etc - its a [thumb]up from me [biggrin]

LOL yah the way that I imagine it is it could be a diorama, or a single vehicle representative of a specific second in time. With a photo document to back up or compare it to.

Here are some examples of dioramas, but it would also work with specific color schemes such as formation assembly ships or specifically damaged aircraft or tanks.

In this thread he shows some cool photos of the model followed by picrures of the real thing!

One of the winners from Scale Model World last year, not only made to represent a picture, but to actually look like a picture itself.
