CONTEST RESULTS 2017!

So it is done!

Took me 2 days and a few hours to think through. Not everyone will be happy i fear and some people are on a tie with their scores. However, the rating is THE final rating biased on my opinion alone. If people were on same scores, i choose the sum of SC style and Creativity as the main feature to establish the ranking order.

I would further want to point out that there were many City Scale mocs which imo do not really belong into this contest despite Andy saying thats "okay". Therefore there are also 3 winners in the "City SCale Category" as a "subcontest". However the main results are the priority for this contest.
Another note would be car width. If speaking about speed champions, its 6 wide for sure. Now Andy also allowed up to 8 wide, so i went with that, but prefered any 6 wide build over a larger width depending on the execution of the build and quality.

ok, lets move ahead:

There was a maximium of 31 points for the winner and a few sentences of my thoughts on each creation.

Car Accuracy: 1 - 10 Points
SC style: 1-6 (1 no SCp, 2 for 1SCp, 3 for 2SCp, 4 for 3SCp, 5 for SC style TLG, 6 for looking better TLG)
SCp = SC Part = Big Mudguard, new wheels, windscreen from the sets
Creativity: 1-15 Points

Read= SCORE: 31,(10+6+15)=(CA +SCS +C)!

1) Lambo Aventador – do ppo – SCORE: 31 (10+6+15). That front end can only be described as an outstanding example of lego engineering, for it is spot on and super unconventional to use a hinge and even have SNOT en pair in the same section. Also using a minifig Seat to cover the side air intakes – fine shilouette and working doors? Just inspiring to push the limits - This build earned the license to kill! Congrats on 1st place!

2) Porsche 911 Carrera S – LiveLively-KOR – SCORE: 30 (9+6+15). Also some excellent front design magic happening here with that roof brick and a tough competitor in this contest giving it its 2nd placing. One may note how true that shilouette is, check those functions and be in awe how 2 minifigs comfortably find their way inside without causing its sides to be too plain. Only the rear end section is something im not a fan of, considering a non SNOT option to be simpler and yet more fitting to the car. On a personal note I must say that for doing a Porsche (which seems to be the most replicated car in contest), this blew some fresh air into how a front end can be done, which is a real treat to see!

3) Alfa Romeo 4C – Sean Cox – SCORE: 30 (10+5+15). Take that main pic, print the LEGO logo into the upper Corner and ready it is for the next SC wave! From all entries I find it to be the most “set like” since it uses its techniques rather decently, yet very skilled were they need to be. Just notice how the windscreen is “built in” by those wedgeplates, check the SNOT in the front air intakes and the B pillar and most notably that side skirting where a round shape is literally covered up by even more slope bricks in a really cool fashion. That’s also refreshing stuff right there concerning its rather basic technique. It also looks firm, gap free and playable - its a unique car choice and deserves the title of a true SC product!

4) Bugatti EB110 GT – Marc R.unde – SCORE: 29 (10+5+14). It comes together really nicely and albeit I find 7 wide somewhat unfitting for an SC contest, it was enlarged proportionally correct and to great effect. The techniques are very solid and well placed, the presentation is superb leading to a very clean result. I could imagine this working in 6 wide aswell with minor changes. All in all, a clean deal!

5) Barricade Police Mustang – Nils O – SCORE: 28 (9+4+15). We didn’t ask for a Lego(trans)former – still we got one! And sure, why not? As long as it doesn’t break with the SC style – and it certainly does not, in the contrary it look like a real SC. I really do give some points here for figuring this whole transformation process out, it really is without competition when it comes to the mecha function!

6) Italian Job Cooper – Jonathan Elliott – SCORE: 27 (10+2+15). Definitely living on the olymp with the other great Mini Cooper builds over the past years I have seen, looks just like it, clever taillights and front grille. It really has something special and could be a set from TLG just like that despite having none of the typical SC traits. Therefore I gave it an extra point for it’s the only “small vintage” car here and im sure TLG wouldn’t ever use the bigger parts to get this one done.

7) Vector W8 Twin Turbo – Gallardo of LU – SCORE: 26 (10+3+13). Now that’s a unique car choice this contest really needed to get a good mix going. In fact a fantastic choice and overall effective techniques (especially the rear end section and front) to represent this gem of a car that never really got the recognition it deserved. Now black windowing is definitely ok and this car does have a wiiiide windscreen, yet it didn’t scream SC all the way and feels more like a product line of its own.

8) Alfa Romeo Giulia – Jonathan Elliott – SCORE: 26 (9+3+14). It has the SC style and uses two SCparts, is very sleek and does catch the eye. Somehow that front feels a little off with that rather “rough” offset from 5 to 6 wide. Its good thinking, yet it also makes it look a little inferior to that great Mini of yours.

9) Dodge Challenger – Geoffrey Welch – SCORE: 26 (10+3+13). Despite having seen minifig binoculars many times as exhaust or headlights, the inclusion of them touching the inner parts of the 2x2 Tile is really cool as it comes together real clean and that front really has the right SC appeal. The rear end is also mean looking completing this “macho” car. Only the gap in the roof transition does harm the creativity categeory a bit.

10) McLaren P1 – Prototyp Works – SCORE: 25 (10+2+13). To me this is the Winner of the City Scale entries. It is super sleek, combines the SC windscreen nicely into City scale, the front bending is one of a kind. Only the tail and side area I would have wished for a more “greebly” solution like the front, therefore 2 minus points on the otherwise excellent creativity here. However the plus side is that due to its “brickish” nature, im quite sure that many colour options are availiable irl and that its quite easy and fun to build when I look at the black side flares (almost missed that detail!).

11) 1969 Ford Mustang Boss – Marcel Urbanija – SCORE: 25 (10+5+10). Since both Mustang Entries are almost identical I speak for them both and will include this entry as one: The red Boss thumbnail was already very intriguing to look at, almost screaming for the top 3 scores. On a closer look the techniques are definitely solid, yet rather a good upper standard which would be ideal for a real Play Set! Be on the lookout, TLG could call any minute for a license to this MOC – it really became my personal #2 for set potential!

12) Covette C3 – Petey Bird – SCORE: 24 (10+2+12). Instantly recognizable, love the side air vents and especially the rear view. Cool detail with the front and rear end features gives it a solid and sleek appeal, making it an ideal City Scale MOC!

13) Dodge Viper – erics – SCORE: 23 (10+1+12). Without question a Dodge Viper, the creative techniques are very fancy and the whole build just pops into the eye, especially the side assembly. For this contest it does hurt a little that it doesn’t use the bigger mudguards, yet for its overall appeal the smaller ones are buildwise the better choice! A great City Scale MOC!

14) Mercedes AMG GT – do ppo – SCORE: 22 (7+4+11). A cool Speed Champion for sure, the headlight part usage is very delicate! Same goes for them tasty sausages as taillights – however, compared to that amazing Porsche Entry, this looks more unfinished and plain. Its also not so easy to immediately recognize as the car its supposed to be (to me this has also a BMW Z4 touch). Still, excellent thinking on that front end!

15) Nissan Skyline – erics – SCORE: 22 (9+2+11). Seemingly a bit bland at first glance, yet some really clever use of headlightbricks for the spoiler, tail area (check that rear bumper!) and a nice inclusion on the taillights with those neck brackets. A very sleek MOC, yet perhaps good detail too easy too miss so the Dodge Viper sells it more in this contest. I personally find this could have easily been done with SC mudguards giving it also a fairly high ranking!

16) Ferrari F40 – Sean Cox – SCORE: 21 (9+3+9). From a thumbnail it looks like the larger Creator Set F40 and it includes all notable detail here. I do like the angled wedge plate a lot and the side air intake build up is really something – still im wondering why the 7 wide choice, yet keeping the length of an SC car. It makes it look wider, albeit im quite sure those techniques work just fine in 6 wide.

17) Audi TT – Nils O – SCORE: 21 (10+5+6). Probably the cleanest entry in the contest with a definite TT appeal. Would have been the better SC Set from TLG imo. However, the techniques are standard and not as creative as the previous entries. It works just fine, it simply is a simply designed car and theres no need for overcomplication, but since there is quite some competition going on, I must pick off a few points in the creativity bar….

18) Ferrari 599XX – Dennis B – SCORE: 20 (8+5+7). Another great and mean looking Speed Champion, that front is out for a thrill! The front section would be really nice for an upcoming SC Wave as it looks cool and firm. However, the rear end despite being well put together is mainly a copy from the side skirts giving it a repeat in design which others encountered a lil more “disctinctively”. I personally would really try out a few more options on this one as this could achieve a more elegant look with less studs on side.

19) Ferrari 288 GTO – Fabrice Larcheveque – SCORE: 20 (10+5+5). Now this looks like something straight from TLG. Its shaping is true and radical. Still, doing every feature, even taillights in sticker feature, does really shrink the creativity bar. Im quite sure there would have been some nice real bricks options. Cause shapewise this is stunning, and it even includes mirrors!

20) Porsche 911 updated – Petey Bird – SCORE: 20 (8+2+10). I know its supposed to be a Porsche, but its somewhat so short it does also have a Beetle feel to it (both Porsche designs btw). The techniques are superbly used and lead to a sleek gapfree appeal, yet it does share some traits with most Porsche MOCs these days so there is a little dent on the creativity-meter.

21) Aston Martin Vulcan – The Evstar – SCORE: 20 (9+5+6). A unique choice of a car with some well placed techniques all around to shape the car. I do like that blue front mudguard as grill intake, but that’s like its sole unique feature building wise. Yet it does fit well into the SC Theme with the techniques used, a solid SC MOC after all!

22) 1939 Bugatti 57C – Joao Campos – SCORE: 19 (10+3+6). What a choice of a car... In general Joao Campos really dared doing something more experimental this contest which I really like! Yet, while the look is true to the original, I find the completely stickered front a main disadvantage here. It was hard to decide for me, since the real SC also use many stickers – but they never did a whole front that way. However, those stickers are well placed. So standing on devils edge, I decided to go with 6 points creativity wise cause from a thumbnail I did hope for a more “complex” front. Perhaps its also just the car choice that is a little unthankful for such a contest, being a bit too plain. Still, most of respect for going that far back in car history!

23) Audi Sport quattro S1 – Marc R.unde – SCORE: 19 (10+5+4). Looks like the real deal and I love the brick build decals. Yet techniques are very standard due to the rather “standard” car choice. I probably would have liked more definition in the spoiler and skirt areas for it to have some more interesting areas to look at. It is also standing in the shadow of your magnificent Bugatti despite it being an excellent MOC.

24) 1973 Carrera RSR – Blaine R – SCORE: 18 (9+2+7). To be honest, I wanted it to have a higher ranking and then even a lower one. Looking at entry date and building style it feels somewhat copied from Petey Bird’s Porsche since they both magically share that same short wheelbase and headlight with quarter circle idea. However the improvements here if copied are really something concerning the rear axis which I never saw like that before. For this clever idea I gave 5 points bonus so it reaches the now 7 points in creativity…Now if the rear end, wheelbase and front end were somewhat longer it would deserve more of a recognition. Also a lil bonus for that sticker usage. In total, a missed opportunity imo.

25) Rover 214 GSI – Joao Campos – SCORE: 17 (8+4+5). Solid and clean. But if you choose a bland looking car its hard to keep up with the supercar competition were others try the wildest techniques. The build up is so clean and simple, it even has a more City Series appeal. I kinda wished you did at least one real Supercar in the SC line to be more in the SC “wave”…

26) 1990 Porsche 911 - GLI Zoomer77 – SCORE: 17 (9+1+7). A really nice Porsche in excellent City Scale! still I see some of Zeto Vince Hood engineering and most of the standard Porsche moccing in the front, yet the spoiler and skirt jobs in front and sides are very cool, so half score on creativity

27) Ferrari FXX Evoluzione – Dennis B – SCORE: 16 (6+4+6). Its definitely creative, yet for some reason it doesn’t really work out that “smooth”. It looks somewhat unfinished in a few areas and a bit inferior to the 599XX from you. What I do really like is the sticker usage u bothered putting up. It’s a nice touch improving its look!

28) Lambo Miura – Fabrice Larcheveque – SCORE: 16 (9+4+3). It looks like the Miura, it looks solid and has everything it needs. Still, it feels like the recent Ford GT Set buildup with minor changes only. So the creativity bar took quite a punch. However, both cars have similar design traits – therefore its somewhat hard to judge the creativity so low, yet in lego there is always more than one possibility to get the job done, therefore I think this could be improved.

29) 1985 Porsche 962 – Blaine R – SCORE: 15 (8+2+5). Somewhat hard to judge as its 8 wide and as a Le Mans in a league of its own, the 962 feels just a little too plain as to be recognized a true Speed Champion style build. I couldn’t find one SC SNOT technique, the front mudguards clearly have a more curvy shaping for aerodynamics on the original and compared to the TLG sets, 6 or a max of 7 wide would be preferred imo. Still, it’s a unique choice!

30) Nissan Skyline GTR’72 – Prototyp Works – SCORE: 15 (9+1+5). Bare to the bone! It looks splendid, the front spoiler is nice and the mirror detail is spot on. Nothing much to say really on this one. A solid entry!

31) 1968 Chevrolet Camaro – Jack Sparrow – SCORE: 15 (9+4+2). Mainly a MOD of the existing Camaro in the TLG set, so nothing really out of the ordinary. The upgrades however are a lot nicer than the official hot rodded version!

32) 1988 Chevrolet Corvette C5 – Jack Sparrow – SCORE: 15 (9+1+5). Solid, clean but reminds me of most of the C5’s ive seen so far. Also those gaps are a little itch, for they can be closed around the mudguards.

33) Lambo Centenario – Loek M – SCORE: 14 (1+4+9). A big creativity Bonus here. Its unconventional a little and interesting to look at. But if it wasn’t for colouring and title, I could only guess the car frankly.

34) BAC Mono – Gallardo of LU – SCORE: 14 (8+2+4). Certainly creative, but a really odd choice. Especially next to last contests huayra its somewhat hard to fit it into the SC line. I would give more on the creativity meter, but this is really a league of its own so I cant place it higher next to with what the competition came up.

35) 1969 Ford Mustang Shelby GT – Andy Sax – SCORE: 13 (6+4+3). A cool Moc, the dual colouring is nice and it’s a solid buildup all around.

36) Lykan Hypersport/Koenigsegg Agera – Custom Blocks – SCORE: 13 (6+4+3). Now that front end looked really promising and unique whilst done with quite a simple brick technique – the rest however feels a little to “fastly” assembled and not quite spot on. Perhaps more time for detail could have been profiting for this moc! Almost the same thing on the Koenigsegg Agera: It looks a bit too “squarish” and is missing some roundish areas. I also think the headlights are better switched with the white cheeseslopes for more accurate appeal.

37) Ferrari 330 P4 – The Evstar – SCORE: 12 (5+4+3). The front end = yes! The tail? Hmmm… I think that could have worked out a little more detailed and more defined.

38) Nissan R390 and Mercedes – Paulo D – SCORE: 12 (5+4+3). They do somewhat look the same and do somewhat look like their originals. A bit plain, but I bet very solid in structure. Hard to find some gems here that make it stand out more in each model, also to separate them from another a little better.

39) Ford Mustang – James C – SCORE: 11 (6+1+6). A cool Moc with lots of play value like openable doors and 2 minifigs side by side. Its not the criteria of a speed champion though and the 7 wide was presumably chosen just to fit 2 minifigs. But its clever in its own way!

40) 1966 Porsche 910 – Kevin Michaels – SCORE: 11 (6+5+1). Im also no fan of this scale, but considering you entered the contest, perhaps a little more input into this model might have set it higher in ranking…It shares the main traits with the original, but something special is missing to really have it stand out more. Also the presentation of this MOC could be improved using Bluerender for example.

41) Speed Champion Superbird – Anthony Gugliotti – SCORE: 11 (4+4+3). A nice Superbird using the necessary SC Parts leading to a solid result. The Picture quality makes it hard to see en detail, so I cant write that much about it

42) 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback – Anthony Gugliotti – SCORE: 10 (4+4+2). Front works out nicely, the “fastback” area itself comes off a little chunky and should be lower and more angled.

43) McLaren M6GT – James C – SCORE: 10 (6+2+2). I think its very rad looking and certainly catches the attention of the viewer very well. That canopy is nice thinking, albeit a big too high for its usage. Also the absence of most SC parts have ranked this build further down.

44) G1 Transformer – Daniel Ringuette – SCORE: 10 (6+1+3). Both kinda turned out very big – they look playfriendly and solid and much like the original counterpart. I like the brick build decal. Apart from that they are hard to fit into this SC theme. Has more of a Creator Line product appeal

45) 1968 Chevy Camaro – Sputnik the Third – SCORE: 8 (5+2+1). A bit too simple really, as I read its due to brick shortage, yet that’s what bricklink is for. At least mudguards were used for the rear axis wheels! The overall look aint too bad, very Creator Line stylish.

46) Pininfarina EF7/Jaguar E Type – Emmanuel Spencer – SCORE: 8 (6+1+1). Both entries have their fair share of relation to the original vehicles, yet the builds feel unfinished and not in SC style, especially the jaguars in that regard. Im quite sure that the LDD update happened a while back, so these could have been fixed with the missing SC parts eventually during contest time.

47) Veneo Roadster V2 – Verbal Gerbil – SCORE: 6 (1+1+4). Its unfinished, yet I bet I wasn’t the only one looking forward to whats gonna happen with that nice headlight technique! A bummer really. Maybe next time you get the time to finish a moc.

48) Nissan GTR R35 – Geoffrey Welch – SCORE: 5 .It’s a mod of last contests entry – a real improvement, yet I gotta take some minus points into the calculation. However, if it was a completely new entry it would be in the Top 10 since it really looks like straight from TLG! But since you have another entry, no big deal I guess :)

49) Königsegg 1 - GLI Zoomer77 – SCORE: 5 .The car is literally a copy of my own entry in the first contest so lowest score on creativity, albeit it has some nice improvements I willingly admit!

CITY SCALE WINNERS:
1)Protoyp works with MC Laren p1
2)Corvette C3 by Petey Bird
3)Dodge Viper by erics

Congratulations to the winners! Get in touch with me for the digital high-end render PRICE if you won the SC Contest (not city scale pls) = o.k@outlook.de!

Whoop! Now that's some super-quick judging LOL The Viper coming in 13th is serendipitous since 13 is my lucky number (hence Thirteen Motorsports aka THIRMO). Aaaaaand I may have figured I'd get dinged for using City-scale parts but it was worth it just to participate ;)

So it was a sweet surprise to catch the lil' sub-contest for City-type cars in which I pulled off a better showing ^_^
[[Shout-outs to Prototyp & Petey Bird for their own excellent models]]

Special thanks to you as well for your effort in judging!!!

Thanks Ron for all your hard time judging and commenting on such a massive participation.
I thank you particularly for the comments you made on my both entries, which I find are fair and most appropriate.
Above all, is was for me great fun participating in this contest, despite its awkward timeline. May other ones follow!

You are welcome, on the other hand it would be a shame to see this contest unfinished as you all put effort into it! If there is a new contest for this SC thing, this whole double entry thing has to go, thats literally killing the time of any judge^^
I can totally understand why Andy had issue finding time for this - its massive!.

I AM SUPER SORRY! Really, i thought it was yours - i went through most of the stuff from last time, obviously not close enough! If i would have to bet on whos that was, i would have lost quite a sum of money know^^
Anyhow, i compared both now and im suprised to find many similiarities between Dennis and yours...not so sure how far i can judge this as an "original" build in the creativity section, perhaps the case is even worse?. If feels more like a mod and a shortage of wheelbase whilst most of the basic techniques stay the same. I wouldn't place it any higher then im afraid, for the reason that it shares too much from last contests entry :/ Yet your Dodge Challenger was really refreshing and individual! I think you can be really proud of that one as it also did very good in the contest!

haha, yeah thats the thing. I mean it simple has that name as a contest, so i had to dinge anyone not making use of the parts. Since andy wasnt super clear on that one, that subcategory seemed appropiate hence the huge number of city scale builds. Im glad you like your 13th and 3rd Place ;)

I want to give a big thanks to Ron for his big effort to do something I've got too lazy to. I mostly agree with his decisions and choices, yet I don't think to be in a situation to deserve speaking my mind - well, I kinda missed my opportunity.

To recognize his effort, dedication and, most of all, passion for the hobby and for this community, I thought it would only be fair to promote him to administrator of the group, therefore making his ranking official.

Hmmm. 21st and 37th. I should really ramp up my game this year. The new SC sets are coming out in less than 2 weeks and i've got a few good ideas of what cars i'd like to build this year. Let me know when this years contest begins and i'll make a start.
