    Someone mentioned having a scale model build off.
    Sounds great to me. Just a few things we would have to decide on.

    Time to complete- Two Months or more?
    Which Kit- Probably some sort of Ford
    Updates- Would participants have to provide weekly updates?
    Modifications- Would changes to the model be alowed and how much?


    I was thinking we would have to get a Sticky put up of the competition. Have people join the build off. Then start it around Febuary and go till March/April.
    The kit would have to be readily available. And as far as modifications go, Id say its pretty open.

    Id like to be able to use different wheels and such. And I say any scratch built part is ok. Im sure alot of the modelers on here have model "junkyards" full of spare parts and such.

    We will probably end up voting on most of this... lol

    No way!!!! Anyone can build it the way it's supposed to be, hacking and creativity should be encouraged.

    How about narrowing it down to like 3 mustangs to choose from, and then letting people customize however they want?

    I would love to get in on this, but I would have a hard time meeting any of the deadlines. It usuallly takes me a while to build a model. My interest and availability comes and goes. I still have not finished by 97 Cobra that I started over a year ago.

    I think the idea about getting a couple different ones to choose from is a good idea. It will bring variety. Plus, it may be hard for everyone to find the same model at a reasonable price.

    Support your local hobby shop:nice:



    Down with Wal-Mart



    Whats say we start this thing January 15th...........End date March 1st
    That gives everyone a few days to get a kit and supplies.

    Has to be a Mustang, any year or model. Unlimited modifications. Has to be based off a Mustang chassis and body. Hell.......as long as it looks like a Mustang we'll consider it !

    I say we do the yellow Cobra model shown above. They are ALL over Ebay, and should be easy to get. I say allow anything goes, no rules on what you can/cant do, just a time limit!

    For those worried about others having an advantage, this is your opprotunity to step it up a few notches!
