THEME: POST APOCALYPSE (It’s the end of the world in 2012, ANYTHING GOES!) SHINY, RUSTY, or in between—It’s UP TO YOU!
TIMELINE: January 15th – December 31st.
SUGGESTED RULES (Remember you can break the rules--it's all about having fun):
1) Build a model that reflects your take on the end of the world. Post nuclear, post apocalypse, futuristic—and it could be shiny, rusty, metallic, kit-bashed, stock, your own creation. ANYTHING GOES as long as it is your model, your imagination, your CREATION! Toothless Zombie Hunting is allowed!
2) It has to be a vehicle, whether it’s one, two, four, or however many wheels and axles (it can have tracks too) as you deem fit.
3) NO DIECAST VEHICLES. It must be plastic, but spare parts . . . i.e., aftermarket, scratch-built, and watch parts, Natural parts i.e., fabric, paper, wood, metal . . .etc are also accepted.
4) CURBSIDE SLAMMERS are okay, but a complete vehicle with engine and interior details is preferable.
5) The model has to be a FRESH/NEW build, no old projects, or a project you've just started will be fine. The vehicle must be built during the set date above, although you can start gathering your sources and materials.
6) You MUST post your build progress to this thread. The section will allow for critiques, comments, feedback--greatly encouraged. You must follow and uphold MCM Forum established rules. Please exercise discretion and common sense.
7) YOUR BUILD SHOULD HAVE A NAME and final submission of the completed model will consist of no more than FIVE-EIGHT PICTURES that MUST include the following angles: FRONT, 3/4 LEFT, 3/4 RIGHT, REAR, UNDERNEATH CHASSIS, ENGINE bay, INTERIOR, and FROM ABOVE. The pictures must be clear and in sharp focus, in good light. In other words, we don't expect you to be a professional photographer, but the pictures should represent the best of your build. Also, the builders should provide commentary to describe how the model was built, detail added, building methods, etc . . .
THAT's it, the rest is for you to have fun and provide lots of eye candy . . . this is your chance to let your imagination run wild.
What are you waiting for? The hour is already getting late! The clock is ticking . . . the Zombies are coming over the hills . . . are you ready?
ARE YOU READY?
PS--For those of you who need more time beyond a year, all I can say is you don't want to anger the Mayan Gods, now do you?
PPS--For those of you too tempted NOT TO build anything or try your hand at this type of vehicle, remember this: EYE CANDY IS A TWO WAY STREET. Besides, do you really want to be caught without a way to get around those Toothless Zombie Hordes coming to get ya? No, I did not think so. And you don't want them to get their hands on Grandma either!
PPPS--Make sure you have plenty of pop corn at your disposal!

ose with question marks next to your names, you have posted to this thread but have not made it clear if you ar joining or not. I have only posted select pieces of what people have said they will work on when they started or have let me know after I made this list, and have not really gone through and updated what you guys are actually working on. I counted 123, including the names with question marks.
If you guys email me what your building and the name of it, I will keep an updated list of who is working on what that I can post each week or two. Email me your name as it appears in my list or if you are not on the list and want to be (and if you are on the list and aren't participating), let me know at Uberdeath322@gmail.com (this is not the Doc's email). Any other info you want included in the list, let me know.
