I just want to express support for the idea. I'd feel guilty voting for a specific competitiin, knowing I often let the SSM contest deadline go by before even starting to cut plastic on a submission. I'll pull my act together for Trek: I have some ideas for the competitions listed, even for the Kit Kaption theme.

Dominion War theme would be great.

Just a last minute idea:

Gifting a fairly inexpensive airbrush kit to someone who doesn't have one? A starter kit, for a modeler who needs one?

thinking out loud.

I'm sort of ashamed to say I never paid much attention to the contests......probably better for me, since I'm such a glacially slow builder. HOWEVER.......what would people say to a Klingon-themed contest next time around? Categories of Best OOB Klingon, or best Kitbash? There are a lot of designs to choose from, and many of them already have plastic or resin models available in varying degrees of accuracy. I don't do a lot of Klingon models, but I have a ton of them in my stash and I suspect most of YOU do to. So let's get to building! What do the page creators think?

Villains? Hmmmm. that does have a certain je ne sais quoi to it.

I would love a Klingon specific contest, but can live with "Adversaries" if that's what people want.

Villains to whom, though?

I like the idea of a "villains" contest. Maybe have two categories for both straight from the box or kitbash builds.
