Do you want a Group Build or Contest?

Post by Xen » Thu Jun 14, 2018 7:10 pm

now that wf is over i'm entertaining the idea of a group build or a full blown contest with prizes. the prizes depends on whether i can get a gk'er or several gk'ers to donate a kit for at least first place.

check out the ideas i have and add your own input/ideas if you want.

You might try contacting Erin at UGH! Models. He's been known to donate a kit before.

I don’t pretend to know how often Erin frequents here, but I was thinking via email would be much faster: Ughmodels@gmail.com

I can donate a pair of Federation Models (ex-Gizmotron) Klingon BoP in 1/1400 (wrongly stated at 1/2500 on the box), see my review of the kit here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3266

They are great kits, but at the wrong scale for me, as I am a sacred scale only builder (better saying collector, by now).

I could also donate one or two of my Shapeways Klingon models (in FUD, of course, for better quality), but I cannot print them and send to the winner, as UPS extra charges to my country are extortive, plus the importation taxes; maybe the winner could order them and I would refund the total. Just an idea...

thanks shiftdel. the 1/1400 kbop's might suffice. i can't imagine the winner or top three wanting to pay for prints and shipping. although i do greatly appreciate your willingness to help out. :)

as it stands not a single member has expressed interest in either a group build or a contest. zero posts from potential participants, which is a bit weird.

that said, i will go through the motions and see how it plays out.

i emailed ugh. no reply as of yet. the same with tim linsey. i'm having trouble trying to even think of sellers to bug at the moment.

now might be a good time for members to offer some merchandise if they have some spares etc.
