We joined forces with Pat Ham­mond’s on­line mag­a­zine Mremag to launch ‘Model of the Year’ in 2007 (MR99). The con­cept was sim­ple – “to cel­e­brate ex­cel­lence and in­no­va­tion in British out­line model rail­ways”. Read­ers were pre­sented with a short­list of ready-to-run mod­els in ‘N’, ‘OO’ and ‘O’ pro­duced dur­ing 2006, and asked to vote for their favourite. It’s a for­mula that worked well, with man­u­fac­tur­ers vy­ing for the top slot and dis­play­ing their cer­tifi­cates – proof of your sup­port – with pride. There’s now a plethora of model rail­way awards from our com­peti­tors that all fol­low pretty much this for­mat. So, Model of the Year is chang­ing. Rather than wheel it out once a year, Model of the Year will be on dis­play all year. For each new item of ready-to-run tool­ing re­viewed in Model Rail, you can go to our web­site and vote to de­cide whether it be­comes a con­tender for ‘Model of the Year’. If you all vote ‘yes’, that model will be short­listed for a ‘Model of the Year’ award. At the end of the year, you’ll have the chance to vote for the ul­ti­mate win­ner from those short­listed. That will make the win­ner truly de­serve the ti­tle ‘Model of the Year’. Surely that’s some­thing to vie for?
