    Plastic Model Building Contest

    I've been asked to have Hobby Central host a plastic model contest and I think that would be a great idea. I am working on the details now. It will probably have two phases with the first phase being either on Facebook or our forums and the second phase being in the store. I haven't decided whether or not to make it a single category or several categories, for example just cars or cars, aiplanes and ships. I am looking for feedback and will appreciate any help in getting the word out. The model will have to be built during the contest period. I will be sending out an email with a coupon for a discount on a model.
    Thanks
    Bill

    Hey Bill, you have anything Model wise in a Twenties to Thirties range? I have an idea on what I want to do but have to find the right model to build it from. I need to get in there this week so I can get started on the build. Depending on how crazy I get with it, I might be rushed just to make it by the end of the month.

    Not 100% Positive, but I have some ideas that are inspired by my rat rod build I was doing almost 2 years ago. I would have to come in and take a look.
