I recently visited a fantastic model railway exhibition in Southampton with the great layout (pictured) of the imaginary Nandi & Mau Railway. It boasted numerous great features including David Attenborough's crew and David Shepherd capturing wildlife near the track (as shown).
However the whole experience was tinged with sadness as it bought home the imminent crisis of dealing with our own Island home - the 8m x 4m model that is An Artists' Impression. For those who haven't seen it click here for images of the lovingly crafted model developed over several years in constant response to developments in our on-line text based Island game.
Despite successfully touring to many venues and receiving much popular acclaim we are currently storing it at Grizedale and with their imminent building plans we have got to shift it.
SO the time has come - do we:
Put it on ebay?
Store it indefinitely in the hope of a future retrospective?
Hassle the guardians of the digital art world (whoever they are)?
Give it away to a gallery?
Try & find a home at a model railway club?
Put a match to it?
