Xen is taking a break

Postby Xen » Tue Jul 09, 2013 6:57 am

I'm going to (try to) take a break from admin duties over the summer. AST won't be launching another "official" contest until around late fall/winter. However, that doesn't stop you from fleshing out ideas. I'm also open to the idea of "someone" running something just for "fun" in the meantime. No prizes or rules as such. I'm not sure what that could be (or how it would work), but that's for you to work out. ;)

What about a simple group build on a theme just for fun?

Something like "adversary" in the 1/2500 scale... So everyone can do pretty much what they want but we have a common theme and the same scale...

would that include pirate ships lol ... or maybe any ship other than starfleet ... would be alien races ,civilian ships ect just no starfleet ships or even starfleet surplus ..



or i was thinking maybe just for fun take say an old enterprise kit TOS or refit ( new or one in need of repair ) and see who can do the wildest paint job ... no other frills needed like gap filling , lights or anything .. just build it out of box and let the paint flow

Funny, I've been thinking something along this line for some time...

I think this would be fun.

I'd say a group build of one of the 1/1000 enterprise would be a blast.

Sounds like a challenge. :D

I've had several alternate paint schemes for the E. Unfortunately, I've got other projects that I need to finish in the scarce summer hours where I can work on the hobby, so I will not participate. But I'd love to see what your guys come up with. :D
