Ok guys, I know I am new here but thought what a better way to get to know all of you than to have a competition. So here goes. Very Happy

Starting on May 1st and running till June 30th I will be running a contest for the best converted Star Ship (any race). The judging will be done as a blind vote by the community as to ensure people are voting for their favorite piece and not their friends. The prize will be awarded by me in the form of my Shuttlecraft disaster objective marker.



Rules:
1. All entries are to be sent directly to me in the form of a PM (please don't post your work in the forum until after the competition vote).
2. You will need a 'proof of life' photo before you begin showing the unpainted ship and the components to be used in the conversion. To get an acceptable 'proof of life' photo you can take a picture of the model laying out on that days news paper, in front of your monitor with a website showing that day on it (cnn.com, espn.com, etc).
3. Work must be your own.
4. Model does not have to represent a specific ship type in the rules...so let your creativity go wild! Very Happy
5. Base model must be from Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc., if you want to add other parts from another company that is fine.
6. Photo of competed conversion must be shown before painting the model. So, you will need three photos...'proof of life', completed conversion, painted model.
7. Model must be painted before the end of the competition to qualify.
8. Judging will be done by the community in the form of a poll from July 1st till July 10th.
9. Each entry will be posted with with a numerical tag as opposed to the creators user name to ensure people don't know whose model is whose and thus giving a fair result.
10. Prize will be mailed out the Monday after the competition voting closes. If perchance the prize is lost in the mail Amarillo Design Bureau, Inc. is not responsible to offer a replacement prize, this contest is entirely on me.

So guys get cracking, and look forward to some great competition!! Very Happy

I won't be able to complete anything in that timeframe, but I'll be watching the results.

Nor will I. Going to be out of pocket for most of that period and away from any ability to work on minis. Looking forward to seeing how it goes.

I'm also in the likely to not compete boat. Job interviews, commencement, and writing my dissertation unfortunately take most of my time.

Can't wait to see what comes out though.

Interested, yes, but the timeline just doesn't work for me. With the limited hobby time I have available, all of it is going to sculpting/mastering right now. I won't be able to be serious about painting until later, this summer.

Would love to... but, as with Will; real life intervenes.

I have Masters to make... Origins to attend (and prepare for)... and a daughter graduating... and Mom's health issues.

Lots of great ideas... not so much time. Crying or Very sad

Should we look at later in the year?
What time line would work best for everyone? Smile

She will. It's only simple cataract surgery... but she's got one eye tomorrow... then follow-ups at 1 day, 7 days 28 days and 90 days. This of course is followed by the second eye in two weeks, along with the same follow-ups.
Plus the pre-op antibiotics... the post op medications, etc.
I just won't be able o commit to anything of this sort until after Origins.

Sorry.

Glad to hear that it is nothing too serious...I had a long 5 years with my mother battling cancer, so I know that you need time to be there for her. Hope that everything goes smooth for her with the eye surgeries.
Wishing you guys all the best,
David

I'd be lucky if I can correctly glue the nacelles onto my standard federation command cruiser much less create anything new. I'm about ready to pull my hair out on this command cruiser.

You're not hte first [and likely won't be the last ] to inquire about this process.
Here's an older thread with a lot of advice.
Read through it and if you have further questions, feel free to ask away.

You're a lifesaver, Scoutdad! I tried to adhere them into place using nothing but epoxy putty but they would never line up correctly. this process was effective in attaching the saucer section. Right now I'm ripping the nacelles out and going to get a block of clay with which to create a mold to hold them in place and super glue them. I'll fill in the gaps with putty and mr. surfacer. I will most certainly employ the method described by scoutdad in the linked thread! Very Happy
