Your model on a cover of a magazine or a trophy for first place on a big show? I think I like the cover! :rolleyes:

Good question. I prefer the cover of a magazine, it gets a lot more noticed than a trophy.

I have a couple of trophys from 2 different models and they are cool but I would rather have them on the cover of a mag! or just in the mag!

Not going to happen unless you submit something... ;)

Kind of like winning the lottery. You can't possibly win unless you buy a ticket.

I agree, I'm not likely to win a trophy or get one of my efforts on a magazine cover, I'm content

I enter a lot of 1:1 car show and have won my share of trophies,Best of Show,Best Interior,Best stock appearing engine,Best paint and all. Even went undefeated at Mopars in the Park during the mid 90s with my 64 Fury Convertible. You can have all the trophies/plaques you want, the best would be a Magazine shoot and over the top would be a cover shoot. Just didn't happen. Now it on to models which I will never get even a picture in a magazine because "Box Stock" doesn't get too many shoots.

I build mostly because I like to. I have entered a few contests in the past and won a few plaques and a ribbon...I'm done with contests. I wouldn't mind seeing one of my models on a magazine cover, but I see much better builds than I can do that deserve it. So, neither is really that important to me as long as I'm happy with the end result.
