                                                      FLIGHT!

As with other build contests this years will be based on a theme and the theme will be Flight.  There will also be a time limit and the voting will be done on a possible voting/poll basis with knockout rounds similar to the LPL but as a simpler version.

General Rules -

One entry per member (no joint contributions).

A child board will be set up in the Workbench section and all build threads must be started in this child board. There will also be a dedicated Gallery set up just for the contest for hosting purposes so please post your photos there and then of course post them in your build thread, any questions regarding this just let myself or Prof Witcheimer know.

The official start date is 09:00 GMT Sun 8th Jan and all applicants must notify me on this thread by 20:00 GMT Sat 7th Jan. They will then be listed in this post below. The list of entrants will be in alphabetical order (no favouritism). Please let me know if your username is wrong.

If the theme doesn't interest you and you're already noted below then that's not a problem, just let me know on this thread and I shall remove your name.

If we don't reach X Entries, I will make up the numbers to keep it even for the voting so who ever gets in the same poll as myself gets a free win (all pairings/groupings will be random).

I will not be entering as a 'legal' participant, just to either make up the numbers or for fun :-)

Finished entries must be submitted no later than midnight Sat 18th Feb and the voting will start shortly after. That's six weeks to build something!

The build threads of the entrants should include as many progress shots as possible, including sketches but no photos of the finished entry should be posted on the thread. Painting in progress is not allowed, only primed entries are permissible on the build threads if you are unsure then please ask.

Final entries must consist of either one photo or a photo montage of the finished piece. No photo manipulation will be allowed apart from the usual cropping, white balance, contrast as long as they are within reason. Again, if you are unsure then please ask.

Photo size should be 800x800 pixles and sent as a jpeg to buildsomething@lead-adventure.de  

Although winners will be voted by the population of the LAF, if there is any sense of foul play the judges decision is final although we would hope that it won't be necessary given the friendly nature of the LAF :-)

Theme Rules -

The entry must include something that ties in with the theme. Anything goes whether it be a plane, dragon, spaceship, a Da Vinchi-esque flyer etc. Links to 'flight' are permissible also; for example, a landing platform for a space shuttle, an air traffic control tower, a set of Icarus wings on a workbench etc. If you have any questions either ask them here, to the above Buildsomething email or via pm but Please label your email and pm Build Something 2017 otherwise it might not get answered.

Minimum base size is 50mm x 50mm or 50mm diameter etc, there is no upper limit. If in doubt, ask.

There is no minimum or maximum limit of figures on the entry but please remember that this is a Build something contest and not a figure painting contest...

Any period or setting is allowed as long as it fits with the theme including sci-fi or fantasy etc.

The entry can either be solely a diorama/vignette piece or it can be for gaming with, the choice is yours.

The idea is to build something so the vast majority of the piece should be scratch built, only 0-25% can be commercially bought items or figures. The rest must be hand made. This percentage also applies for 3D printed elements (whether home printed or bought). So the total of bought and 3d printed items together on the build cannot exceed 25%  If in doubt, please ask.

Conversion of commercially bought items is allowed also. Eg, a head swap on a single figure would not be suitable but re-positioning and sculpting several new body parts would be. Another example would be a plastic airplane kit; adding a couple of extra parts to the kits would not be allowed but having some of the extra parts from a sprue on an entirely new build would be fine. Again, if in doubt, please ask.

It's probably not possible to cover all the eventualities so please use your common sense and use fair play where you can.

Good luck and happy building   Smiley

Addendum - If you don't have a thread started in this board by the end of the 8th then your name will be taken from the list and you won't be able to enter.

If the subject matter can be made to fit into one of my projects then I am in too.

I can donate prizes too, if it helps.
