Hi, this sounds like a great contest.

A few quick questions:
1. Are technic cars allowed? I just so happen to be working on a supercar at the moment.
2. Do realistic functions help your score?
3. If the car is not modeled off of a specific car but rather off of a real style of car (such as a muscle car) would it still lose points?

Thanks in advance. I look forward to (hopefully) entering.

Hi,

Thank you for joining :)

Sure, techinic cars are allowed, and yes realistic functions will help with your contest score. And like it says in the description, it is fine to add a car that isn't a real one, and yes it makes it better if it is a certain style of car :)

Good luck, i'm sure you will do fantastically.

Can't wait to see your entries :)

Well, my current WIPs are taken quite a lot of time... One isn't a car, and I'm not sure yet what type of car the other will be... It probably won't have a lot of detail either, just shaping.
I'm probably not going to enter, but if you want, I can be a judge.

Thanks for the invite :)

For now I shall have to resort to adding an already-made creation, due to lack of spare time - if I get a chance to make something else, I shall... but don't count on it...

Living in the south of france (during the summer anyway) and having driven already quite a large number and variety of cars, even though I'm only 21 years old, I can tell from experience that a great summer car simply has to be open-topped, not necessarily supercar performance - it's about admiring the scenery as well, ans thus not zooming by too fast to appreciate it - and also about driving a car that is enjoyable to drive, something with charm - an automatic mercedes saloon is a very nice car, but admittedly not exactly very 'fun'.

Putting all that together, I think my lego car which nearest matches that description is the 1930s style cabriolet (complete with thumbnail showing it driving around scenic mountain roads lol).

- Dan

P.S. Thanks for your comment o my lamborghini model- I have left a reply to it with my email address.

Thank you for the invite. It's much appreciated. I will enter one or two of my previous cars, as I'm too busy with lots of non-LEGO stuff (as well as a few LEGO car WIPs) to make a new one. If it's not ok I will remove them.

Thanks to everyone who has accepted the invite, its ok to add already made cars :)

Good luck to all of you,

I have put Halhi141 as moderator, he is now a judge of the contest :)

any judges cannot enter into this contest, and can start judging any time.

Here are the categories for scoring:
(Use of technique, out of 20 - 20 being amazing)
(Exterior detail, out of 15 - 15 being amazing)
(Interior detail, out of 15 - 15 being amazing)
(Overall score, out of 50 - this will be all of there other scores added together)

To all judges, please lay it out like this (as this will make it easier):

Summer cars 2012 contest scores
Use of technique: /20
Exterior detail: /15
Interior detail: /15
Overall score: /50

Don't forget the deadline is 1st september!

Thanks :)

The categories are for scoring, so you make any car you want, you can focus on one thing if you want, but we will mark you on exterior detail (out of 15), interior detail (out of 15), use of technique (out of 20) and an overall score out of 50 (all your scores added together). there will be a winner for each category - so the person with the highest mark in a certain category... sorry, its hard to put into words ;)

Any more than two entries woud take too long to judge. Just imagine...18 people in the group; if they each add five, and each takes 3 minutes to judge, that would be nearly five hours judging...

I think that it should be the 10 best entries, so it would be able to give the other compettitors a chance. If it were the top 3, most people wouldn't have a chance to make an entry.

I have decided the results will come in a list, one for each category. I have decided that if your model has won 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize in either one of the categories, it cannot come 1st, 2nd or 3rd in any other. This will give a chance for more people to land on the podium! I can't do anything about prizes, unless Mitchell does... But remember, everyone is a winner! :) Good luck to everyone!

The contest has finished! :) Good luck to everyone, I will finish marking your models, and add the scores up! Then, I will type them up as no. 1 - 35. I know I shouldnt really do this, but I have had a slight change of plan... I will post the top 10 for each category, but remember that once one of your models has come 3rd 2nd or 1st, you cannot gain this place in a different category with that model! :)

Yes I have! It is Perfect! You r a gr8 drawer! I can't really draw 3-D cars just the Side view do you have any tips for draw the 3/4 views?

Thanks a lot! Well, number one - practice. I've always drawn a lot, which has really helped. Another good idea is to use those 'how to draw' books, I don't know if you know what I mean? Well anyway, when you first start drawing detailed cars, those can be really helpful, boosting confidence and helping you get used to drawing from difficult angles :)

Thats where the 'how to draw' books come in :) I was always like that. In 3/4 views I always struggled with the far side headlight. Then after enough practice, one day, I could do it!

Wow, you guys talk a lot. I don't exactly know what I want my career to be, but I think it'll probably have something to do with science or engineering.

Well, I see that you love Lambos (so do I!!!), so let me suggest the Miura. It is a nice challenge :D
