Ok guys I got to thinking about the rat roders contest and how it could have been a cool mounthly thing. But rat never got the awaords mailed to until 6 weeks after the contest.and now hes no longer doing it. So basicly im going to start a new compition but with difrent classes. Classes will be

Low riders
Hotrods
Hoppers
The awards wont be a useless trophy but some thing more usefull towards models. Is any one down for this

i would, but there are too many variables in something like this. It's kinda hard to judge just by pictures. and what if someone has a sweet-ass build, but not great pics, do they lose cuz of there photography skills?? and that's a lot of classes to govern. if you do it, i would suggest maybe a different class every month. also you wouldn't see the problems with the models...or the workmanship. i could very easily see it being judged, based on the judges likes and/or dislikes.

That might be fun but inmy opinion Internet contests suck. You can't really judge quality of work and detail from a few pictures, besides many of the pics I see here are not contest quality.
Personally I have enough local contests to keep me busy. It takes me a year or more to do a contest quality model.
Rather than a contest how about a monthly meeting or gathering, you know like the 1:1s meeting at the local shop or drive in?

I hear your pain man. I like to attend a contest anyhow and mingle with the other builders and swap ideas. Besides on the net I can hide my big ass thumb print on the side I don't show you in the photo LOL

If more than one person had posted their models i would have keept the damn thing. Plus my computer was messed up at the time, and i couldnt judge. Like i said before Ray, I am going to send you something, and i have my eye on it. So be patient.

And for the contest, Go right ahead. I thought it was going to be more cool than work, and which i thought people were going to participate rather than the Best ( no offense to the others) Model maker.I was kinda bumed my self after the last contest. I thought a cool monthly contest would be sweet, but as you can see theres complainers, and guys who take advantage.

Personaly, i think this is kinda of a dis on my contest, and i think you should of contacted me first before posting this. But what ever. ;)

2 many people get upset quickly on these forum, so instead of hearing all thoses people bitch about it. it would be opened for finshed models.
