The 1/1000 Romulan bop made me reconsider my opinions on the tos era kits, plus the sadist in me wants to motorise the nacelles on a 1000 Tos-E.

Maybe a simple friendly group build would be better ? A contest might put pressure on newcomers and scare some people off...

For the models : must be from TOS era but all scale and build allowed (oob, lights, kit-bash, scratchbuild, diorama...)

For the time, I would say 6 months would be good and would allowed more complex build to be finished...

Start date April or May to give people time to choose something and get supplies or after-market parts...

What you guys think ?

That sounds good. I think we might have a better chance of getting a group build going than we would a contest.

Either way way, I'm interested.
