Ahoy MSW Shipmates! Running in parallel time with our "MSW Community Build Contest", we now announce the "Shipwrights Staffers Build Contest"!
Keeping in continuance with our new, "MSW Community Build Contest" we will also be running a similar build contest between all of our MSW staff! The contest will have the same basic set of rules and regulations, with one small twist....this contest will be judged by YOU, the members only club of MSW!
The contest will be divided up into two seperate competition sections, OOB (out of the box) and Full Build, respectively.
OOB Category Rules of Engagement
(i) All scales permitted.
(ii) Ship Model must have a plastic injection hull.
(iii) Ship Models that have inherent PE or turned barrels or any other multimedia parts are not allowed.
(iv) No rigging allowed.
(v) Ships may be placed on pedestals if the pedestals are part of the model. Completed waterline models may be photographed on a plain wooden base or on cardboard paper. No water effects allowed.
(vi) Aftermarket/alternate decals may be used.
(vii) The modeler will start a build blog on MSW at the start of the contest to display the progress of the build.
(viii) First photo of the build blog must be of the model parts, still on their sprues and next to your selection of local newsprint, with the date fully visible… this is to ensure that no one starts with an advantage.
