Post your questions about the 2013 contest here.
Just a decision we made. Mainly to make a change and to make answering questions, like the next one, easier.spud said:why no dio this year ? and is there that many building floaty things?
No bases at all for contest entries...other than all-open.Jeeves said:So if I am putting a KV-1 on a very simple concrete slab as a monument piece, would that still go in the All-Open?
Thanks for the info, TBadger! Such a link will certainly be helpful for putting down the fee.TBadger said:Another idea, is to take final pics when the piece is not on the base yet, that would remedy any argument over bases
The clear stand that comes in the kit? No. That's not a base, it's just a plastic piece of the kit to hold it in the air.f2k said:So, just to clarify:
An aircraft modelled in flight (that is, on a clear flight-stand) would go in the open category as it includes a base, right?
Not if you take photos of it before placing it in the water, just flat on a piece of blue stock would work.f2k said:A boat placed in clear resin to simulate water would also go in the open category, right?
Don't submit pictures with figures, it goes into armor. Submit pictures with figures, it goes in open.f2k said:How about models such as tank-riders? The previous years, anything beyond a commander and a plain base was a diorama, so how do I enter, for example, a T-34 with a tank-rider squad?
Yup, unless of course you do as the video says (and what I typed above) and take the photo prior to adding those things.f2k said:And for those of us entering the open category, our three-month build risk going up against something that someone has had years to finish to the highest standard?
Zachly. Scott even says that in the video.TBadger said:Another idea, is to take final pics when the piece is not on the base yet, that would remedy any argument over bases
Well, I have never built a small scale ship with all that rigging so I can't argue that, but can the water be added later?Tailor said:however most small scale ship kit modeller would be attaching his kit to a base before addingany of the small parts. The base helps to avoid unwanted contact and unnecessary direct handling.
Not really.spud said:right so if i want to add figs to my tank i gotta put them in the fig cat ;/ kinda sucks but i can just take the pics of it with out them.
thanks for clearing that up.
Sorry for nitpicking, but I'm kinda curious just where you draw the line.Ken Abrams said:The clear stand that comes in the kit? No. That's not a base, it's just a plastic piece of the kit to hold it in the air.
I can only speak for myself, of course...Ken Abrams said:Why does it suck? Because your tank will look better with the figures right? Think about all the dudes who enter without figures, I bet they think it sucks that yours looks better than theirs.
