sorry I couldn't enter anything new for the previous contest. I have been busy taking exams. I know I made excuses for the past contests but this time I already have something in progress. I think its a very British car.

Thanks for the invite Dan! I've made a British car already, which is the Aston Martin DB7 Vantage. Also a Mini Cooper. I'll make more Brits on LDD at any chance I get. My favorite one/s will be entered for this contest.

Thanks for the invite, not sure if I'll have an entry. I always tell myself I'd like to build a British roadster, but I never seem to get around to it! =P

Hey Dan,
Sorry but I won't be able to enter this contest because I'm busy with a few other cars at the moment. Thanks for the invite anyway and I hope to enter your next contest.

Hi, i'm currently making an Ultima Can am for this competition, it is mostly done, but is taking me ages because it is a very curvaceous and hard car to make...

I can understand that those curves are very hard! I'm very interested how you'll make them.

I'm really excited to finish it and get it put on here, It will probably be my most functional car ever! All I am going to say is it is very low, and looks really aggressive!

Hi all,

First, sorry for being silent at a silly time regarding my contests - I've been away and not on the computer for about a week, so am now catching up everywhere.

For those that can't make an entry this time: no worries at all; the contest lasts 2 montshs so plenty of time if you do change your mind, if not feel free to just follow the competition and maybe take part in the next.

Regarding the last competition: MOCpages completely failed and the contest results still haven't appeared on the page, despite me posting them twice. So I'm going to try a third time, though I hope you can understand if I don't feel like writing such a long story again, and will give a shorter more concise version.

Regarding this competition: We've got some great entries already, keep up the good work! Also, if you know anybody who might be interested in taking part, feel free to invite them.

- Dan

Hi all!

I have a bit of a question: I have planned some British sportscars, but I aren't sure which I have to build or improve. Can someone help me getting some inspiration?

Hey,
I know what its like when you need inspiration, i feel like that most of the time! ;)
Here is a good link:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/picturegalleries/8566060/Ten-of-the-best-British-sports-cars.html?image=6

Maybe try to make something that is very rare and interesting, not only in real life, but on mocpages. :)

Btw, your TVR is great, I know how hard it is to make cars like that, I made a speed 12 and it failed (I have never put it on, but might do)...

Can't wait to see what you make, whenever I don't know what to make, I always end up making my best car! :)

good luck!

Thank you! Well, as Dan sais 4-wides won't win, and my not 4-wide collection don't involve any British cars. So that's where the TVR comes in. Still thank you for the compliment

It's really nice to see people encourageing others to be confident in their work and enter it... yet you don't want to upload your speed 12 model!
Now I know firsthand that it's such an awkward car to make, there's hardly one straight line in it, and it's full of louvers and things of that nature... yet it is always possible to make it out of lego. Sure, I make my models large so I can fit more detail in - but that's partly because I'm not as talented as some people on here, who can make models as detailed as mine at a third of the size.

So hey, give your model another go, it'd be nice to see another person's rendition of the Speed 12 here :)

Whoops! Sorry, I didn't realise that.

Well all you need to do then, is let me know who you think would be interested in participating (with a link to their page) and I shall invite them.

If you post your message as a reply to one of mine, I'll be notified by e-mail and will be able to act quicker.

No problem at all - you're allowed two entries, and can switch them around as much as you like if you change your mind or make better versions, until the deadline of course.

Well, we'll need to see it first :) I can't see it on your page.
Now, others can help you, though of course they'll only create more competition for themselves (not that it really matters, there aren't any real prizes or anything) - but I ought not help you myself, as I'm the judge. All I can see is look at my Speed 12 for some inspiration - though my strategy is usually build big, so that the problem isn't doing the details, but finding all the parts.

Also, completely unrelated to anything anyone has said, but I've just finished a fair sized MOC today - a spaceship, not a car - though you'll have to wait a week to see it as the camera has gone on holiday...
