    One question that I couldn't seem to find an answer about, and in lieu that the entries last year year were all planes. Do dirigibles count?

    Just curious...I've been trying to get to the link for more competition rules, but it keeps bogging down. So, are the entries limited to models made from the Horus site? I ask this since the announcement mentions you want to feature photos of the models in the kits you sell.

    Dirigibles! :shock:
    If it flies lets see it.

    To clarify - models from other sites are fine too.
    Having been inspired by Yaniv, I may be persuaded to open up a fifth category for photo essay builds of kits.

    Keep yer eyes skinned folks, we have something special lined up for about a weeks time.

    Last question for now, I think.

    Can we post build threads here at Cardmodels?

  11. Horus

    Horus Member

    Only entries sent to the Paperwarbirds site can be considered.

  12. rickstef

    rickstef Guest

    So, if i read the rules correctly

    after the entry has been recieved by you Marcus, one is free to post a build thread anywhere he/she likes.

    reason i mention this, build threads are more than just pictures, it might inspire someone else to enter too

    Once the competition has ended and prizes anounced, sure.

    Would folks like me to set up a category 5 for "start to finish" entries? If there is enough interest, then I'll dig a bit deeper.



  14. bholderman

    Its not that important to me. I was simply a bit overeager and naive, in addition to not fully understanding what "published" meant.

    Hi Folks,
    The bundle of kits given to each entrant has just incereased in size.
    It now ibncludes the Fokker Dr1 from WIngs of Horus, SPAD VII from Digital Card Models and the Fiat G55 Centauro from Thai Papercraft.

  16. Texman

    Fiat G-55, huh. Now, where do ya suppose
    that one came from? Any hint as to what
    the paint scheme will be? Seen some pretty
    nice ones out there. Thanks to all the designers
    who are contributing!!

  17. Horus

    Horus Member

    I think it is the co-belligerent overall dark green. In any case the G55 is fully editable.

    Am I the only one having a heck of a time trying to navigate through the Paperwarbirds webpages? :?

    It seems every time I try to click on the links for the competition I get frozen... :(

    Is there some different webpage setup/popup thingy going on there?

    Frustrated in humid New York....
