Hey Guys,
First of all thank you Gregg and Jairus for letting me post this here.
This is for a contest my model goup and I are putting on.
NO COST TO ENTER,this is about love for a certain genre of model building.
The rules so far are:

a)Must be an off road inspired build such as a dune buggy,lifted 4x4,Desrt racing,rock crawling,Jeeps,etc..
B)1/25 and 1/24 scale only
c) no die cast
d) partial projects allowed at start date,no further than %50 along.
e) build and enter as many models as you like in time allowed
f) must provide updated pictures once a month so people can follow along
g) Classes so far are Competition and Play,with 2 more categories of working suspension and non working suspension. Depending on how many builds we get and prizes collected will determine final categories.
Categories and FINAL rules will be posted at contest start.

So far Prizes are things like unbuilt model kits,so real concepts Iroc swampers,needle file sets,steel rulers,resin parts,custom paint masks from RPP,.....alot more to come.
We have off road related swag coming from Race Dezert.com,Off Road Wherehouse,and Coyne Motorsports.
Also a member said he could get a signed copy of "Dust To Glory" with Andy Griders signature. He was in most of the movie racing for team Honda.

Stay tuned!!!!
I figure to have at least 25-30 done builds when it's over.
See flyer below.

I put together a photo folder of off road models to give build ideas.
Hope this helps.
If you need to know where to find parts and supplies for these types of builds,I can help with that too.

Would a factory 4x4 work? Like, something with an off-road package? I have plans for a full off road vehicle, but it's not going to be ready for a long, long time....certainly not for this contest.

Yes,any off road inspired build is welcome.
This is more about sharing and having fun then prizes.
We are just trying to show that off road builders do exist.LOL!
Just email me at kod38@hotmail.com.
Please post your progress here too.
We start building on Tues the 11th and finish November 1 06.
If you need any help just ask, I can help point you in the right direction.
Thanks.

Styrene??
Well,do you have a train shop too?
Model rail roaders use this stuff alot.
I have to order online because my LHS is going out of business.
RPP Hobby carries some popular plastruct sizes here-I asked him to carry some and he got it right away.LOL!
http://rpphobby.com/...Model Parts.htm
I would get a catalog from evergreen and plastruct so you can see all they offer.
http://www.plastruct.com/
http://www.evergreenscalemodels.com/
Get yourself a good liquid glue like Tenax 7 or Proweld too.
I wish I lived closer,I would just show you what I use.
Maybe I will do a tutorial for TMM.

The body is a multi piece unit with a hood mounted spare.
I changed the front end a little.
Here is an idea of where I am going with it.

funny, i just sold a VW Thing i have owned and improved for 20 years, i was going to post a photo but cant access image shack from here!

anyway i have a model i would like to enter in this contest but its already completed. is that possible? its a mid 60s land rover 108 done up off road style. i can post photos if you would like. or is this contest only for cars built during the time period on the poster?

also have a kubelwagen and schwimmwagen already built some time ago.

ps: got rid of the thing but still have a 85 toyota land cruiser fj60 with a chevy small block in it! now *thats* a real trail machine!

one love
jah bill

Here is the build I have going so far.
This is a ww2 vw Kubelwagen made to look kinda like a vw thing I hope.
I only have the front half of the chassis and cage so far.
I would say I am 10% done.
It will have coil over shocks,porsche trans,motor? chevy v-6 -porsche 6 - or a scat v-4.
Has a long way to go.

Looking good! I totally changed my build...I brought home the new AMT/Model King 72 Blazer and it's almost done...it would have been done if I didn't ruin the hood, I've got it all sanded now I just have to fix it!
Prime, paint, clear. Hope I don't mess it up again!

Otherwise, it's done, and my entry is complete!
