Hi Everyone

Firstly, a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has replied to the previous topic and said they would like to take part in a NEW EVENT.

Without this support the Forum would wither.

There is still time for anyone else to join so we would encourage EVERYONE to think about joining in, the more that join in the more FUN it will be.

Secondly, we are now considering all of your comments about the themes YOU would like to see included.

WE WILL UPDATE YOU ON THE THEME(S)/RULES VERY SHORTLY SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US.

Once we have set out the THEME(S)/RULES we will tell you the start and finish dates so you can decide what you are going to build and get prepared.

REMEMBER, THERE WILL BE PRIZE(S) FOR THE WINNER(S).

WE WILL BE COUNTING DOWN TO THE START SO KEEP CHECKING THE FORUM FOR MORE UPDATES.

THE STAFF.

On 1st May a further announcement will be made regarding the posting of your initial photos as we plan to include a special item so that everyone will be starting a new project.

Good luck

Woohoo, looks good! Very open so everyone should find something in it to suit them. Great job guys!

I'm thinking of going modified, I have a certain car that's been bugging me for years, now I can have a go at making it how I want to make it.

Cool beans! Thanks,SPC! :D

I do have 1 small problem--not with anything in the rules or anything like that,I just won't be able to post any pics on May 1st,we just upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 this eve not realising that our card reader that we use to upload pics to the PC isn't compatible with Windows 10,won't be able to buy another until payday,but that's next week,so should only be a day or 2 late :)

If i want to build a model pretty basic with some obvious mods like engine wiring, wheel change, is that qualiffied as OOB or Detailed build?

^ I have a similar concern.
Got a kit I'm considering entering with, but want to change the wheels, lower the height and add a few details to. Would that be considered OOB, modified or detailed?

I'm very keen to start building but I have 2 questions:

First of all:

M1CRO wrote:


The model can be a Car or Bike or Truck.



Does that mean ANY scale or type of models can be entered??

For example: 1/20 F1 cars are allowed too??

Also, WHERE DO WE POST??

Can everyone open up a new thread, here, under the "New Event 2016" section? OR do we post in the "Group Build" section as RS2000 just done it??

Thanks!
T

Well reading M1CRO's post

M1CRO wrote:

• Best Modified model (e.g this must be major modifying such as altering the bodyshell/customising the kit)
• Best Detailed model (e.g. wiring the engine)



I was thinking too what's what.... but as I understand Andy's post, changing the wheels and adding PE sets wouldn't mean MAJOR modifying.... Adding wide fenders or making them out of putty, opening doors, adding engine, making a stripped interior would make it "Modified model".

Wiring the engine, adding PE sets or some CF decals, changing the wheels should belong to "Detailed model" category.... shouldn't it? :roll:

As Tami has said, OOB means whats in the box (except primer paint obviously), if your building oob but adding better emblems (that were not in the kit), engine detailing etc that would be under detailed, and tubbing, spaceframes or just a simple bodykit would be under modified

Good luck to all who enter

Am I too late to enter?

I am hoping to build a Mk1 escort but with the scaleproduction engine is this OK as the engine has not been released just yet?

Has the contest started yet? Most people seem to just posted the qualifying photo, and what time scale do we have to finish? I can't see a finish date anywhere, or am I being a bit stupid?
I really want to join in, but not sure when I can fit it in.

Contest runs from 1st May to 30th September.

If you look at the 2016 event thread all the rules etc are there.

Look forward to seeing what you are going to build.
