Looks like another aweseome contest. And the earlier start date is a great idea. As much as I'd like to join in, I'm going to sit this one out. I've won stuff the last three years so I feel it only fair. Good luck ye all'.
Thanks for your thoughts Adampolo. I'm good, I think it is nicer for someone to win a prize for themselves tho.
So,...I was thinking, ...last year myself, Grendels and John Simmons each donated a kit to see Scott participate in the contest. All he had to do is complete a build. I wonder if there are any different members that would like to offer a kit for this years incentive.
This is going to be my first contest, and it will be my first model build in 30 years! My skill level is limited, but I have a kit already lined up and ready to go. I just hope that my model doesn't turn out so poorly that it won't "take flight" (a hint for the category I will be entering! ). I won't be winning anything as a beginner, so I hope that everyone understands my sincerity when I say "Good luck to all of you; and I hope that you have a lot of fun!"
I must admit that I'm rather sad about the no-dio ruling this year. All of my planed entries included a base...
Perhaps it's because I come from the world of tabletop gaming. I don't consider a model to be finished without a base. A tank just sitting there on it's tracks with nothing going on around it bores me - sorry, but that's the way it is.
So I guess that I'm confined to the all-open category this year. Bummer...
I am not perticularly happy about the "no base whatsoever"-rule either, but be that as it may. I am definitely in. 3 months is a very short contest for a ship builder, but maybe it's going to teach me not to look at the model for 5 minutes every time I have added a bit. ;D
I haven't decided on a particular kit, but a good number of kits from the stash come to mind. I'll decide this on a whim.
I am much looking forward to the competition!
I'm amped for this, think I'm going to try something I've never done before, Sci Fi. Have the kit in my stash, going outside my comfort zone but I've been itching to start it so this gives me a perfect excuse ;D.
