Monthly Customizing Challenge - Month 13: Vehicles
« on: April 19, 2006, 05:28 PM »
I would guess next month might be one of the runners up from last vote:

Someone make a mental note for future topics - Imperials, Vong, Vehicles...

Or, maybe something completely different!   ;)

I'm guessing it will be something completely different  :P

I'd vote vehicles for sure but I think we are getting ahead of ourselves already.  We didn't decide on this topic until the end of the first week of April  ;)

Hi guys,

I think it would be a good idea to start a new thread and start the debate for may challenge before may gets here. This would give us more time to work on the project instead of being a week behind. Just my two cents.

P.S. Vehicles has my vote ;D!

Rolla usually these are fan-fiction.

If we do vehicles (which I am all for) here is one I was contemplating on saving for a vehicles month -



I think I have another idea for another vehicle or two, probably using mini rig parts.  I'm all for vehicles.   :)

The "Monthly Challenge" is usually a broad category so that people can do what they want.  Past examples have been Gladiators, Rebel Troopers, Bounty Hunters, etc. 

You don't have to do Fan Fiction, but you can if you want.  For example, if the category was "Vehicles" you could do up a fan-fic vehicle like CHEWIE shows, or you could tackle an actual movie vehicle (like the Sith Infiltrator).  Either works becaise they are both "vehicles".

Or, like this month's category - Gladiators.  You could do up a total fan-fic gladiator or you could make one of the Cartoon gladiators.  Either way works. 

The "Group Project" on the other hand, that is the one that focuses on a specific character (or two) - Isard, Daala, Tonnika Twins, etc.

I just thought of this idea and thought I'd run it by you all:
Many of us have been doing this for a long time and I'm sure our first projects looked like dog poo.  So, what if we took our worst custom we've done, and redo it?  Then when we post, show a side by side comparison. 
One rule though!  Has to be the same outfit from before.  Modifications are alright, but for example if you did dagobah luke years ago, then you cant redo him as jedi knight luke.

Any takers?

I think that's a pretty cool idea Rolla.  However I don't even have any of my old crappy customs anymore...

I've only been customizing for a year - none of mine are crappy :)  Not really true.  I've got an idea already :)

I agree vehicles would be cool, but isn't a month a little to short for a vehicle custom? It takes me a lot more time then a month to build a decent vehicle mostly...

Well, when we did Dioramas/Playsets, that was a two-month thing. 

If people really think it will take 2 months to do, then we can make "vehicles" a two-month event also (although most people wait until the last minute anyway  :P).

I guess I could give vehicles a try. Ive havent ever actually done a Star Wars vehicle custom. But I agree, this should be one of the 2 month projects. Mostly because I wouldn't even know where to begin. :P

Sure Chewie did that AT-ST in under a month, but he's practicly the MacGuver of customising. I'm sure he made that out of a tin can and a tooth pick.
