The Club Competition run by Dolls House and Miniature Scene was won by ladies from the Galloway Miniatures Group in Scotland.
Their winning entry is pictured below but you can visit the magazine’s own gallery online for more views of this stunning diorama and see the other top entries from groups around the UK. There’s also more information in the July edition.
The distinctive Stratford Bakery Kit, an authentic Tudor-style building in 1:12 scale, is on its way to Sue, Pat, Flo, Irene, Elaine and Betty.
It is designed as a merchant’s premises and features a covered area for markets or community events. Other features include a jettied first floor, pre-assembled doors, leaded windows and external steps to first floor. The building measures 590 x 700 x 500mm.
The Dolls’ House Emporium’s own Stratford Bakery on display at its Derbyshire HQ has been transformed in to Dickens’ ‘Old Curiosity Shop’ with a cluttered, intriguing interior full of trinkets and treasures.
The Galloway Miniatures Group ladies spend a lot of time raising money for church funds and other charities, as well as visiting care centres and residential homes to show off the results of their hard work.
The colourful winning scene is to be exhibited at Stranraer Museum as part of the town’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
DHMS publishing editor Lucie Roper said: “Thank you for everyone who took part in the competition and watch this space for more news on the second and third place clubs… these will be revealed in the August issue of Dolls House and Miniature Scene.”
