This will be similar to the previous set up, with minor differences. Rules are below, in bold. New rules/changes will be normal font. The event will run April 3th-10th.
I had the idea of a diecast version of an event like Monterrey Car Week. We would have 7 days of events each focusing on a different type of car, and perhaps scale. On the last day, we would have a Concours with each of us bringing out our best car. We would have three judges who CANNOT enter a car in the event. Each entrant would be limited to 1 entry per scale and the 3 scales accepted would be
1/64 (customs allowed)
All previous winning cars are NOT eligible for following Car Weeks! Previous winners:
Now you’re probably thinking something like this: “But wait. How are the judges going to judge the cars?” That is a good question, and I have an answer. The entrant takes the best pics they can of the car and the three judges will each do a mental Concours D’Modella (CDM) of the cars. If you are interested in helping with this event, please tell me!
Example of CDM for this event:
Fit and Finish: X/15
Features: X/10 (for 1/64 this would be for levels of detail or lenses as opposed to paint)
This event will be started on the
4th of April
and the winner will be announced on the
10th of April
at 3pm Eastern time. All entries must be posted by the
8th at 11:59 Eastern

PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR THOUGHTS ON ANYTHING DISCUSSED!
If you would like to suggest a different theme (preferably pretty broad themes, so everyone can participate), please tell me in the comments! I will also need 3 judges!
