Presenting the inaugural ‘Build Something’ Contest.

The subject for this first contest will be: Transportation

It is a deliberately open category covering just about any type of vehicle from train to submarine to airship.  Additionally any buildings connected to transportation, such as a train station, dockside, hangar, Stargate etc are acceptable. In theory you could even submit a road, river or bridge.  This should allow almost everyone to come up with an entry regardless of their own specific interests.

Members can post WIP photos if they like.   The advantage of WIPs means they can be used for future reference and would allow people to see how the item was constructed.  Each entrant should start a WIP thread for their own submission (WIPS only please, no completed items until after the contest has ended).  Posting such a thread is however NOT compulsory.

The idea is for scratch-building to form the major part of an entry.  If kits, pre-made resin/metal/plastic/etc parts are used they should ideally form only a minor contribution.

I do not wish to make the contest too restrictive for those taking part (or myself running it), so would suggest a modicum of common sense prevails.  Voters will (hopefully) decide whether the amount of scratch-building is sufficient.  The posting of a WIP thread for an entry is likely to aid voters choice.

All construction & painting should take place during the contest, no previously built/started items please.  The idea of the contest is to give you an incentive to build something you have just not got around to doing previously.

For final entries you can submit up to 3 photos:
-A single photo of the finished item (Minimum entry requirement)
-Another that can be a single or composite photo (of multiple smaller photos) of the finished item.
-One photo of the unpainted entry.
The photos may include a few miniatures/vehicle to indicate size/use/practicality of the item only.
The maximum size of each photo is limited to 800x800 pixels.

The closing date for entries is 2359 hrs GMT on 6 December.  They should be submitted to: overlord_awcATyahoo.co.uk

Initial voting commences 7 December and closes 13 December:
I will randomly group entries into several polls.  The winner of each initial poll will go through to a final vote.
 
'Grand Final' voting commences 14 December with the final result on 20 December.
(NB. If I receive only a small number of entries, just a single round of voting will take place).

Let the building commence. Good luck!

[If you have any questions please post in this thread or PM me]

Weyyheeyy, I'm up for this one  Cheesy

One question...

I have started on a certain model but really haven't got very far with it at all and posted a photo of it here ...

http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=12709.0

Would this be considered as cheating or not allowed (I don't mind if it is, I just want to check  Smiley )

cheers

This is cool. I am definitely in. The fun bit is that even if the topic is extremely broad, I have no idea what to make.

Me too, on all counts! I'm torn between something large and splashy which I really don't have the space to build or store, and something smaller, more practical, but with less 'crowd appeal'...  Laugh

I would hate to dissuade anyone from entering, particularly if only a minor start has been made, but to be entirely fair to everyone:

I will amend the contest announcement to clarify this.  Smiley

Is this a scratchbuilding contest, or are kit builds allowed? Just to be clear, as it doesn't actually say anywhere.

It would appear that contest announcements never survive first contact with the contestants!  Cheesy

The idea is for scratch-building to form the major part of an entry.  If kits, pre-made resin/metal/plastic/etc parts are used they should ideally form only a minor contribution.

Not a problem. The contest is intended to encourage the building of a long intended project. If you are like me, you will have vast quantities of potentially useful scratch-building items stockpiled for all those projects you will get around to one day.  Cheesy

Yes, one entry per contestant.

Can we enter more than once? I'll enter a piece that is achievable so as to make sure it's done, but I'd like to try and do something a bit more adventurous too and try to get that in.

Edit: And answered while I asked Smiley
