I had such a good time with the last free model competition I thought I would host the next one. Contest will run from now until June 30, midnight PST. So, here are the rules 1) Find a model on the internet that is offered as a free download and must have a valid link. If model is designed during the contest, a valid link must be in place by June 30 PST with final artwork to be considered for this contest. 2) Post entry name and valid link to model here in this thread. 3) Post a separate "build report" in your appropriate catagory ... with pictures ( if possible)... while you are building the model. Only models started in the build report are eligible. Build report should be completed, with final entry picture by the close of the contest. Please post final picture(s) here on this thread also. Add "Free Model#3" to the thread title to feature contest threads. Example: Free Model #3 - Cannon Pegasus Entries will be judged by forum members by PM. Poll will remain open for 2 weeks after the end of contest so members may cast votes. Modifications The addition of wire, plastic or other materials is acceptable only if directions call for it or the reproduction of existing parts that already exist in paper. Example: Plastic rod or dowels for axles instead of rolled paper. If an extra piece is added then it must be available as download by the end of the contest. The only exception to the above statement is the addition of internal gussets, support pieces, tabs or anything that does not change the appearance of the finished model if these were not added. For example: you could build a piece using the butt guing method or you can add internal tabs to ease in construction. The piece looks the same either way. Artwork of original model must be intact. If you recolor the model, the outcome must look like original scheme. In simple terms, the final model should look like how anyone could reproduce the kit given the same file. The spirit of this contest is to not only feature the wealth of the free download models on the internet, but to also showcase the talent of the builders who are represented by this forum. OK..OK..Fine........But what do I win!
