Heh, the self designed aircraft! For creativity although it does remind me of the Su 25.

Heyyy I got a vote at least.Thanks.:)

For that I actually borrowed ideas from the Su-25 and the Jaguar.

So is the F-14 suppose to be the one that rolled off the carrier in the Atlantic? I mean, isn't that the aspect that NR-1 found it in at the bottom of the ocean?

Not firm yet, but I'm strongly considering running 26 contests a year, every two weeks. You'll have plenty of opportunities :)

Oh good. I can resurrect my HO scale trains (especially those rolling stock I have modified to Milwaukee Road) and go head to head with Romail.

I voted for Romail's steam locomotive. Its a very nice and classy engine model, something like I had when I was 2 or 3. I wanted to be an engine driver then.:rolleyes:

Navy F-14
Looks cool

Ray

I like the F 14 since it looks very neat in construction.

The engine is also good

But creativity is with the self designed one.

And I like tanks.


Awfully difficult to choose!

If there was separate gradation for various factors, then maybe the head would rule over the eyes!

heck, even I thought so....wrong title...should be Scale models.

TJ gets my vote.

Rusty gets the second vote...nicely done.

Thank you. Actually it was sort of fun kit-bashing from two other models and coming out with a more correct representation. Gives you a better feeling of accomplishment than just putting tab A into slot B.

TJ gets my vote.Although Rusty ol boy is also very close.

I realised getting a good shot of your model is as important as the model itself.

btw..Nord would "own" this competition if he wanted..lol.

I've gone for the choo-choo on the assumption that it works.

Perhaps a contest for functioning creations?

'reason being: if TJ has a flying 'plane the train - lovely tho it is - is still a train.:tongue:

Requiring less artistic flair but considerable ingenuity I did drunkenly construct a working trebuchet using only one week of The Telegraph and sticky tape.

I used the Gaudian;) as flaming ammo.:biggrin:

With 43 votes cast, 20 have voted for the Navy F-14 submitted by texasjohn.

Hereby, I declare texasjohn the winner of the 1st WAB Modeling Contest!

Salutations to RustyBattleship, romail, and MarquezRazor for their submissions. There will be many more contests in the future, and everyone will have an opportunity to enter the fray once again!

An FYI, the next modeling contest will be dioramas, as selected by the venerable Bluesman, and will be launched within the next 48 hours.

Thank you one and all for the votes.

I must accept this with much HUMILITY, simply because, I have seen the work of REAL modellers like Nord, Dalem etc. who either missed the deadline or were not aware of the contest. Had the likes of them contributed, they would have smoked me. I have 3 other models I am building and hope to improve as I do.

GLYN, is in the process of building a couple of tanks - perhaps it can be a joint effort by the tankies here!!!! Right Glyn??:)

Er, TJ it might be a bit too strong to say 'in the process'! :eek: I have elevated sloth and prevarication to an art form.:) Stage 1 was finding out if the AFVs I wanted were available in a common scale. Stage 2 was ordering them. Stage 3 was opening the boxes (one at a time, naturally). Stage 4 was some trial painting of the pieces on sprue to check the colour. Stage 5 was putting them away somewhere secure. Stage 6 is happening now as people are reminding me to get on with it. Stage 7 will happen when (if?) I get so disgusted with myself that I actually knuckle down and do it. I am unable to predict when Stage 7 will occur:redface:

My hearty congratulations to Texas John. I think what got them was that extraordinary detail of the cockpit. My hands are definitely too clumsy for that.

As for the "Wash Job" on my M-41, though I have done "Weathering" on many of my HO model train cars, I didn't do it on the tank. That's just REAL dust from sitting in my trophy cabinet for so many years. But I deliberately left it there because it was much more realistic as to where a tank actually gathers dust.

Thanks a million bud!

I still need to get with you on the "Weathering" thing. I am not sure how to do that with the bf-109 balsa model I am now building.

Also, my B-17 ( Memphis Belle) has real dust from hanging off the garage roof!! It does look "weathered":biggrin:

I was going to take it down, blow off only superficial dust, then weather the landing gear with grease, etc. I hope you don't mind "off the wall" questions!:biggrin:

Almost every question put to me is "Off the Wall" to begin with. Especially from my wife and she gets angry if I don't understand what she is saying when changing subjects almost in mid-sentence.

When the modeling contest on this board gets to model trains (I don't have any dioramas set up anymore) I'll post some of those I worked on. It's really fairly easy and fun to do. Especially with coal cars. The "dustier" they are the more realistic it is.

On airplanes, however, there shouldn't be any real "weathering" except where mud may have been splashed up under the wing from the landing gear. The biggest mistake most modelers do with military airplanes is to paint them with a gloss or semi-gloss paint. It must be FLAT. But there is some liquids you can buy at the hobby shop that will flatten gloss paint.

That's a funny thing though about decals. You have to apply a gloss to the model first and then apply a flat after the decals are dry.

Never could figure that one out.

Before painting, do not wash the model with soapy water as usually recommended. Use a quick brushing (an old toothbrush is perfect) with paint thinner. Then the surface is perfect for applying paint.

Congratulations.

I thought your acceptance speech would be in the line of the Oscars! :)

Vive La Martiniere!


Rusty, Marquez and Somail,

Your entries were real good too. I wish I had the patience and industriousness that you all have. Lucky you all!

Would constant reminders (like twice a day) help with your motivation. I wouldn't mind opening a new thread for the sole purpose of 'inspiring' you.:) .

TJ congrats man. ARe you motivated enough now to start a new project?
