Okay gang , let's get this thing started ! I want to keep things as simple as possible so don't over think anything , and if you have any questions this is the place to ask .
There are two categories : 1 - "Car-Toons" 2 - "Zingers"
This time we're going to concentrate on automotive related Toons only . No planes , boats , spaceship , or anything else not auto related (trucks and vans are okay) . Also no Weird-Ohs or Monsters .
Eligible models are : Deal's Wheels , Funsters , Tom Daniel Snap-Tite & Snappers , Polar Lights Snap-Draggins and "Stone Woods & Cook" and "Ohio George" Snap-It kits , the Moebius "Von Franco" kits , and MPC Zingers & Super Zingers .
You can build one "Box Stock" with only paint and detailing added , or you can customize , modify , and kitbash to your hearts content . A "Never-Was" type of build is okay too !
All entries must be of a new build (or a restoration of an old Toon) and a Work-In-Progress thread must be started showing the unassembled kit (or unrestored Toon) to be eligible . And you can enter as many Toons as you want !
Voting by registered board members will determine the 1st , 2nd , and 3rd place winners in each category .
A "Best Box Stock" winner will be chosen from all of the entries by the Judges .
That's it , so get those creative wheels turning and build some fantastic Toons !
Nothing left in my meager stash that fits the bill for this contest.... SOOOOOOO i just spent a relaxing half hour perusing E bay and picked up a Revell Deal'swheels Glitter Bug. should be here next monday.... it's going to be a glitter bug for this contest.
To be eligible your build should start with one of those kits but you can kitbash or modify it however you want . If you can make a DW '57 Chevy look like a '55 Chevy or even build a DW '70 Chevelle , that's a "Never Was" and is okay . You can take a TD Snapper or a Snap-Draggin and modify a different body to fit on the kit . If you want to build a Paddy Wagon that looks like a Snapper that's okay .
ZINGERS : I think we all can agree that a Zinger is an accurate small scale body with oversized but accurate wheels and engines . No wild distorted bodies and tires like the snap kits have . Again you can start with a Zinger kit and swap bodies , engines , or tires with parts from another kit or your stash . Or you can build your own Zinger out of a '58 Thunderbird kit as long as it follows the Zinger guidelines .
