    Alrighty them............. that rule has been modified........ list the link of where you got your model and if you know it is now not longer working please state that with the entry.

    ALSO Note:

    Thanks to the great guys at DGA we will have on yaniv's site for this competition (if we get it to work) a link to allow ANYONE to download a "Special Edition" of the P-80.

    It's a lovely version (if I say so myself:grin: ) and I think everyone will enjoy it.

    I'm still finalizing the prizes but this much I can say........... as of right now:

    1st place is guaranteed 5 models

    2nd place is guaranteed 3 models

    3rd place is guaranteed 3 models

    4th and 5th place are guaranteed 1 model.

    Again this is what we have right now.............. there WILL be more!

    Remember who I have already listed as helping us out and you can just imagine how great these models are!

    When I get everything finished I will post the breakout of the list of prizes.

    Lets the fun start................ and The Sopwith Triplane IS the first official entry!

    yeah! :cool:

    Hi Guys ... Thanks for the work involved in setting up this contest!

    Regarding inactive links: Keep in mind that sometimes this is just a temporary condition due to limited bandwidth. Whenever a download link is posted somewhere, we paper modellers, being the impatient bunch that we are, all rush to download it NOW! ... thereby causing the site to "excede bandwith limit" But, tommorow is another day!:)

    I also agree with Darwin .... I think it is VERY bad manners to post a "direct link" to the download file. ... sort of like taking a "doggie bag" home from a free lunch, for your friend!:-(

    ... Bill

    I suggest that an entry include the email link, as originally noted, and you verify that the link is valid. If valid, the model photo submission is acceptable. It then wouldn't matter if the site goes down later.

    What I want to know is; Why didn't someone tell Yaniv that on his BEAUTIFUL webpage the word "contast" is misspelled and it should be "contest".OR is that the way it is spelled over there? Is this deliberate or an oversight? If you were to change this one thing and the page will look professional. THIS IS ONLY MY OPINION... I am making my selection for this contest. I am sad I cannot build it tiny:(

    Right can I just be a pain, but so far we have the rules for entries but i have no idea of what the models will be judged on? for example I have seen some nice models around for free that are very detailed but the are white only models. I am worried that if I build one of these I will be disadvantaged:confused:

    Well it's kinda like a Beauty Contest............ it's not only looks that matter.:twisted:

    But the judges will know what they are looking for.:grin:

    It's just a fun thing, that will show off some Free models, get people to building and something to generate some interest in the hobby.

    Pick a free model you like, build it the best way you can and enter it........ heck if we only have five entries you are a guaranteed winner:grin:

    The real fun will come in seeing what people really like to build, how many different ways there are to enjoy this hobby, and finding out where you can get some free stuff to build.
