...and then there were...EIGHT! Access granted Bentzin. You have a PM waiting for you. :innocent:

We're creeping slowly toward the minimum. Actually, more like a giant leap towards it, considering it's only been a day. Bad Xen! Bad, impatient Xen!!

Ok, I'm in.

It's just for newbies Moongrim. I would only make this open to everyone, if we don't get enough that are new (or with basic skills).

Eight newbies have jumped into the pool? That's excellent!* If you're on the fence, I'd encourage you to jump in. I went through a 10+ year state where I was collecting models but not building anything because of modeler paralysis. What I needed to do was break open a box and just start building. Ultimately, that's what I did. And it's a friendly contest, so the deadline will motivate you. You can't get any better environment than that.

Do we have more newbies? Most likely. Do we have more that are prepared to take part in a contest? Increasingly doubtful. The ones that have posted here all have access to the Entries section. However, if I don't see threads created within the next week, I will most likely cancel the contest. I can only do so much. The rest is up to the "silent ones".

Sorry I thought I had to wait for the 1st when the contest started.

Not at all. Did you get the PM about this? That notified you of the access and was a "green light" to start. I'll send another reminder to start the threads by the 1st.
