if the interest isn't there for the full contest then a fun build would be good instead

my intuition says to go with a proper contest with a prize(s). the stumbling blocks would be lack of prizes and lack of interest. i find it quite surprising not a single regular has posted about this, so i will include it in the newsletter and see what happens.

A standard old school contest sounds good to me - I'll even toss 5 sheets of decals for a prize in

i'm losing track of where to post in my own threads. the global announcement with a link to this one and this one in contest discussion both has information worth reading.

anyway, the guys at ugh! models got back to me and have offered a prize. so, that is good news and it adds to the tally we have. i just need confirmation on what ugh! models are actually offering so i can let you guys know. :)

current prizes (in no particular order)

five custom sheets of decals from meatloafr
two gizmotron 1/1400 klingon bird of prey kits
4 enterprise kits from tesral (more information pending)
one kit from ugh! models (more information pending)
