As you may know, November has become known to many as Movember. Movember has become an increasing popularity campaign and is a simple way of raising awareness and funds to promote men’s health; particularly raising awareness of prostate and testicular cancer. For men to take part in Movember they start the month with a clean-shaven face and end it with a moustache. Not a goatee or a beard, but a moustache! Women can support the campaign by encouraging the men in their lives to grow a moustache. Locoyard’s Thomas the Tank engine take’s part in Movember by sporting a moustache for the month and your model train can do the same!
This is all it takes to add a temporary moustache to a model or toy…
Step One – Roll a tiny amount of blue-tac into a moustache shape.
Step Two – Paint The moustache (only paint one side) and then wait for the paint to dry (or you’ll end up with paint on your train, as I did!)
Step Three – Stick it On!
The Movember competition is closed. Due to reduced popularity in 2013, the competition will not be held in 2014, but you are more than welcome to make a donation to the cause (please click here to donate.)
