A Special Contest for January, 2017

Update: Due to some technical difficulties, we've had to postpone the photo session until the February meeting. If you weren't quite done yet, please bring it in and we'll get it photographed.

We have a special theme/contest coming up in January. The Model Car Guys of Las Vegas have invited us to a mutual theme with the new Revell 1930 Model A Coupe. We'll both build our cars according to the same rules (see below), take pictures, and send them to the other club. The other club will judge the entries, and send us the results to be announced in February.

We've had a bunch of fun with these before, and this one should be a good time.

Now for the Rules:

We all are using the new Revell 30 Model A Coupe model as the basis for the build.

•The new Revell 30 Ford Model A Coupe is the basis of this photo challenge •The body and one of the chassis must be used but can be modified

•You may build in any style you wish, stock, race, rat, custom or something special

•You may build as many entries as you wish

•Models will be photographed at our January 2017 meeting (min 3 views each no photoshoping) front 3/4, side, undercarrage or special details

•We will exchange photos and each club will judge the others entries

•We will select the Top Five in no particular order (this could expand depending on number of entries and quality of builds)

•Results announced at February 2017 meeting

Prizes will be $25 gift certificates to Discount Hobbies
Please follow the above rules and have fun. If you have any questions, bring them to the meeting Tuesday, or post them in the comments, and we can discuss.
