That is why I am always checking this thread - there are a lot of amazing talented customizers on here. I remember seeing some contests, but the problem with contests is that everyone has a life outside of the hobby and sometimes that life gets in the way of things.I could care less about winning anything I just like to see creative people do their thing.
Opie I get what you're saying. I'm unaware of any modeling shows in my area (I've never looked). What made me ask was that I hang around another board (Figure Realm) and they do custom contests/challenges there. I think it's cool the way they set up the challenges by setting a theme or specific set of rules and you get to see what people come up with, and gives everyone in that community a chance to participate in a fun challenge since the chances of them all going to a local show are are non-existant. I could care less about winning anything I just like to see creative people do their thing.
personaly if you were having the guys mail you the cars for judgement and a promise of prizes....i would say no...Do you think that would be kosher? I am really new here and I wouldn't want to look like a jerk purposing an idea like that without establishing myself here as an active member.
