Wow, somebody made a fan club for me, and we're getting quite a few members now...
It wasn't my idea either, but the guy who made the group (Joel Congi) thought of organising contests when we got more members...
Well, at the time of writing, there are 246 members, so I think that's a fair number to start with :)
For those who don't know me, I'm Dan the Man, and I build mainly cars and sci-fi based MOC's, with some jokes posted in between things. I'm mostly known here for my big, big project, a 1/3 scale 1995 Lamborghini Cala, which you can see the latest build diary at here : http://mocpages.com/moc.php/118628
Since that's my main project, and the one people most know me for, I thought it wold be fitting to base the first contest on something in relation to it...
CONTEST THEME : Build a Lamborghini Cala.
- Anybody can enter, regardless of age or experience in lego building.
- You can build the car in any colour, any scale (but hey, not 1/3, that's my territory...)
- Winners will not necessarily be the biggest scale, but the best looking, and most accurate to the real thing. Plenty of reference images can be found on a quick google image search.
- IMPORTANT : many creations are being added to this group, and if you add your contest entry, I might not see it in the crowd. When you add your contest entry to the group, also add a message in this contest thread with a link to the page of your entry - if you do not do this, your entry won't be counted !!!
- I'll give a nice two-month contest time to start the first contest, because I know first hand how, if you don't have enough pieces already, it can take a long time waiting for bricklink orders; and also because not everybody might see this right away.
Hey, I'm an 18 year old student who's spending ever last penny he has on university accomodation fees, so no money prizes or gifts of the type, sorry...
Instead, you'll get your name and your MOC mentioned on a dedicated portion of my Lego web site (which I will make when this first contest is over), which is getting more and more interest all the time - which means more people will see your model, and help you get favourites and votes :)
This applies to all future contests as wel, which will also find their way onto my MOCpages site, showing that yours was the one I considered better than all the other entries :)
