    1st WAB Modelers Contest

    1st WAB Modelers Contest

    Dear Members,

    I am hereby announcing the launch of the 1st WAB Modeler's Contest.

    Members have one week to submit up to five photos of the modeling work they wish to be put to a vote among the WAB membership. As the contest is open to all, anybody can submit photos of their model. Any prior submitted work in the Modeler's Corner can be submitted for the contest, but it must be submitted in this thread.

    To verify that the work is your own, we ask that one photo include your username written next to your modeling work, unless you have already posted it before in the Modeler's Corner.

    After a week of submissions, the submission thread will be closed.

    A voting thread will then be opened, and all members will be given an opportunity to vote for what they consider the best model over the course of a week.

    The modeler whose modeling work gets the most votes will be awarded a tin of Royal Dansk butter cookies, to be mailed via USPS.

    In the future, we plan to have more specific modeling contests (e.g. WWII planes, tanks, ships, etc.) The first modeling contest will be open to all types of work. This contest will set the stage for future contests, which I hope to have on a monthly basis.

    Regards, Matt

    If you took pictures, you can submit them here.

    After this contest, the plan is for monthly, themed contests. Work submitted here for the 1st Modelers Contest can be resubmitted in the future themed contests. This one, anything goes.

    May I submit an entry for someone else?
    WW2DB: [Photo] Building a model of the Tirpitz on board the Tirpitz

    Just kidding! But this contest is a great idea. I can't wait to see some of the real entries.

    I collect the Milwaukee Road in HO scale. I prefer trains of designs before 1950 and really like doing WW II freight trains. This is a picture of three flat cars (2 are MILW cars) carrying the 3 versions of M-3 Lee/Grant tanks. I made them out of pot metal kits made up in Washington state and painted them in Afrika tan as if they are to be shipped to El Alamein. The kits were highly accurate as you could get them with cast hulls, riveted hulls, American turrets or British turrets. Just couldn't resist them.

    Texasjohn,

    Only one work can be submitted to be judged by the membership for the award. You can submit other works in future contests

    How bout a German helmet? I took an old, beat-up original shell and came out with this:

    Heh, should of made a few things more clear.

    Five photos of one piece of scale modeling work can be submitted.

    The helmet is ineligible, it would be classed as a replica, I believe.

    Is a diorama eligible or should I just stick to a single model?

    Just a single model. We'll do diorama in a future contest.
