If there were a volunteer to run such a contest, what would those duties entail?

I'm just curious if there are plans any plans for one or for a group build this year. I hadn't thought of running one myself, but what would running a contest actually entail?

1) Setting up the hype
2) Getting volunteers to build
3) Setting a theme
4) Getting prizes lined up
5) Planning dates for contest to run


As for #4 - I’ll donate 5 (8.5”x11”) pages of custom decals as a winner prize

If there's interest, maybe I can help with that?

I have interest and deep deep desire, but currently lack the space

I feel your pain. Until I comprehensively redo my basement, every hobby is an exercise in space management by moving things in and out of storage.

to answer the op question; there were no plans to do anything, but nothing is set in stone.

i can reboot the contest meant for last year, provided the people who were donating prizes are still willing to do so (thanks for the help loafr).

then i need:

1) someone to run it (make some rules, make news posts about it, people signed up). 2) interested modelers who wish to take part.

alternatively, a ''just for fun'' build could be done, but the problem always seems to be who will run it and if there's enough interest.

I think a fun contest idea would be a "diorama." While it sounds complicated, it could be quite simple. The only rule being: there should be at least one element in addition to the model itself in order to make it a "scene." The simplest thing I can think of (that would be an OOB build) could be the enterprise with SS botany bay alongside, or the Tholian Web kit with a backdrop and tholian crafts. Or you could go crazy and build the entire Wolf 359 scene with 100 battle damaged ships. The universe is the limit! :D
