That '50 cal.' nose art diorama is simply awesome in concept. I love it!

Just quickly browsing through the thumbnails for now, but it appears that studio scale seems to be in short supply. Why is this? Is WF model kit-centric or biased, or studio scale is ' not appropriate'? Can you enter a 6 foot Galactica scratchbuild and win? Not that I could ever hope to, but just illustrating an example.

Mike

If that Blingoprise... thing... can be entered, then just about anything is fair game.

I'm MORE than certain the answer to that would be 'yes'. I've never seen anything on a size limit mentioned at practically ANY model contest.

Two totally different questions. It'll be judged, that's the only guarantee.

Default Re: Wonderfest pics are up on Kitbash

My first Wonderfest in '99, I entered my large Whitestar build; it's about a yard (darned near a meter) long. I'd e-mailed the show staff well before the date to make sure that wasn't going to be a problem, and they were cool with it.

There are size limits listed for entries since then...

Quote:
Size: Entries may not exceed our size limitation of 18"d x 24"w x 24"h. Oversize models may be entered for an additional $5 fee, but no entry may exceed 48"d x 48"w x 36"h.
The flip side of that is if you check with them ahead time, it really shouldn't be that big of an issue. Especially if it is a studio-scale Galactica!

Hah, yeah, I think 75-odd inches might be a little outside of the limits. Another studio scale issue is that some of us actually recreate the little faults and inaccuracies of the filming models which would count against them in judging. You know, crooked parts, asymmetry, rough paint etc.

It looks like Sean C's base star was there. Did that win any awards? It bloody well should have!

That was over by the Studio Scale area that Paul Francis set up; while I got pics of the Basestar, I cannot take decent contest pictures even with a nice camera.

I personally do not know if the Basestar was submitted as a display model or a contest entry model. Gorgeous to see in person, though!

I seriously doubt it was in the contest - if it was, it would have cleaned house award-wise.
