Newbie contest roll call (sign up here)

Post by Xen » Tue Feb 18, 2014 12:56 am

In addition to our main contest, we'll be having a shorter "Out Of Box" contest for newbies and those with "basic" skills. This will run from March to May. Entries can be styrene or resin, but the only modifications would be additional decals from GK companies). No custom made decals.

If you're new to the hobby (and/or site) and would like to take part, please post your interest in this thread. You will then be added to a special group that allows you to post your WIP thread in the Entries section.

If we don't get enough newbies, we may include folks with intermediate skills and rusty veterans. I'd really like this to be something exclusive for the newbies though.

I'd love to join in. I've built three models, all out of box, apart from the lighting. Am I still newbie enough?

(Admittedly, the most recent one wasn't entirely out of box, due to a few DLM upgrades.)

It's not strictly newbies only, as that would imply folks that are new to model making. Basic/Beginner level is what we're looking for. As for being "newbie enough", as long as you're not some kitbashing/scratchbuilding expert, it's fine.

I hope we get a decent amount of newbies sign up (at least 10). I want to make this as fun as possible. If this turns out well, maybe it will encourage others to join in next time.

Consider me in. Any rules regarding scale etc...? I have a Reliant kit I have been looking for an excuse to build, as well as a couple of the smaller newer 1/1000 scale kits.

Any scale is allowed. I've just added the rules, in addition to an FAQ. :)

By now, everyone that has posted here should have access to the Entries section. I've also notified you via PM. Please have a think about what you'd like to do and start your WIP thread asap.

So far, we have seven members penciled in. I could do with at least a few more. If I don't get ten by March 1st, I might extend the sign up deadline by another week. Twenty would good, but we'll see.

It's really easy guys and gals. Sign up here. I'll give you access. Then start a WIP thread. It doesn't have to be pretty, but you then have 2 months to tweak the thread and your project/entry.

For those still sitting on the fence, now's your time to shine. ;)
