I can't sell the things. How about four. That leaves me the one pledged.

While I like contests to nudge people into activity and stretch their abilities outside their comfort zone, I have another additional suggestion. An annual contest with no prizes (just pride on the line here and/or group appreciation) where all models completed in the calendar year are automatically entered (or the builder could add a post to thread showing various angles of the finished build). It would be like another end-of-the-year review we see for other reasons (years events, celebrity passings, etc.) and could act similar to the "eye-candy" galleries. We could even retroactively do this for past years.

Wonderfest at least keeps a list of winners (it would be better if they included pictures alongside the entries - we could do that). It could help other modelers look for examples/ideas for their own builds.

if you're referring to the lynch, that was received on jul 3, so about 4+ weeks ago.

i'm doing the best i can for one person running the show, so don't be too hard on me. ;)

i still need a third place donor kit that ideally is new, but more importantly, i need to find out how many folks are interested in this. rl is taking a lot from me, so things are not as slick as they used to be.

that's a good idea. i couldn't run it alone though. also, there is still the problem of broken links from old threads due to what pb did.
