Re: Box` O Stuff Comp

Paul Collins » Dec 4 '13
So finally after the aftermath of Telford i think its time to start the organising of the Box` O Stuff Competition.

I have the list below from the old site of those interested in taking part, for those new members your welcome to join, but please let me know in advance as soon as possible.

Alun
Comm Twilight
Noddy4000
Paul mather
Blitzspear
Jargonking
Unsue wether building but will help with some parts....... Tak5haka

For those new memebrs heres the idea and persay rules.
Basic idea is for whom ever may enter, each participant puts together a specified box size of random kit pieces and detail parts. Couldbe half a tank couldbe just the turret along with thebox filled of parts.
I then organise from the participants who sends here box of parts to whom. So basically a swap of parts.
Once recieved a picture of the compnants and do whatever takes your imagination, but only using the parts in your box plus things like putty maybe plasticard and rod.
Also an idea added my Blitz and quoted
``i would make one suggestion that found objects could be used ie plastic spoons, yogurt pots and the such like. I say this because if some one sends a spitfire its going to be spitfire shaped in the final form but if someone adds a couple of cut down ping pong balls and maybe some other household junk, not to much mind then something amazing could come out of it. It may deviate from the original spirit of the build idea bury worth considering.

Blitz``


Size of box should be no more than a shoe box, but anywhere upto that is a good size, just remember the idea is to fill a box of parts so try to be generous as possible but not too much.

Im thinking of start date of 1st of january and an ongoing build time of 6 to 12 months so that everyone has time to build and sand and paint and participate.

Re: Box` O Stuff Comp

Hi Paul, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Over the Christmas break I`ve been moving all my stuff out of the spare room (still am!) so we can have it as a bedroom again. I`m now restricted to a corner desk under the window in our bedroom, so it`s a mite tight and limited space in which to model now! I`d still like to do a box of spares and bits and pieces. I`ve got a fairly okay collection of kit parts etc as well as a ton of found bits and electronics. 


What size box have you done then? I`ll hunt around to see ones I have that are similar.


Anyone else still doing this?


Edit: Sigh...just thought to read the bit at the top (rolls eyes to heaven and back) so it`s a shoe box max for size. Cool. Will get hunting stuff (lost track of it all now, in the move) and get packing.

Just to update that me, Mark and Eric will do a joint build on this at some point in February assuming that it is going to go ahead.  Plan is to meet up for the day and bash something together.


So any of the original people still up for this????
