I'll have something completed! It'll say Yorktown!

We'll see how far I get. More college stuff means I wont be in front of my table till 10pm EDT. It is coming togther faster than I anticipated. Too many rainy days got me behind.

DONE! (from a certain point of view)
I assembled a ship. I put aztek on and registry markings. And Time has expired. I stopped working on May 1 and took these pics on May 2. I now know My hands are only good for about 1/2 hour of fine motor work. It was a great project to work on. The first pic I took with -1717 made me smile! The included aztek decals need major trimming, they have very wide edges. This made the dorsal and the deflector dish virtually impossible to do. The Saucer Aztek is super easy to get bubbles under and that's what happened to mine. The don't seem to photograph so that's helpful. Anyway here are 3 pics to showcase what I got done. More pics with a real camera later. Headed out of town for free comic book day in a few hours. Thanks for being such good supporters on here, you comments helped me get as much as I could done. Thanks to Zen for doing the contest and hosting this forum. Glad I got to participate!!

Good job Ironman! I will however have to contact the sponsor to get their opinion on whether this can be passed as "complete". Del is footing the bill for the prizes, so it's only fair he's consulted.

Djeckhart withdrew his entry at a similar stage to yours, thinking he may not have enough time to complete the build. It might look bad if I allow yours and not his. Then again, if I allow either, that might be unfair to the participants with completed builds.

In the meantime, I will lock all WIP threads, PM Del and review them later.
