Magazine. Had one in the SA Contest Annual a few years ago and dragged that puppy around to show to anyone who would look. I've won a couple of awards but while special it just wasn't the same thrill as seeing the truck first on SA website and then in the Annual.

Ummm..... Harry, unmarked bills or Paypal?......

Forgive me if this sounds like bragging...... as that is NOT how it is meant...... I've had my share of both winning awards and having models pictured in magazines over the past 20 years...... Having a model pictured in a magazine is to me is far better than winning an award...... even though winning an award is pretty cool.

I agree with George, I value a compliment from one of my friends in the club I belong to more that any award.

I don't build for recognition. As long as I'm happy with the way it turned out, that's all that matters.

Interesting viewpoints. However, it's Friday and time for pizza, (no pool - too cold), popcorn, and WWE Friday night Smackdown. And get ready for our FAST meeting tomorrow.

For me personally it's when people enjoy my builds or say they learned something from the build.

But if i had to chose one of the 2 you listed, I would pick the magazine.

It's a toss-up.On one hand,it's a definite thrill to know your model was seen to be unique in some way and will be seen by thousands of people when looking at a picture in a magazine.It's also a thrill to have your efforts judged to be outstanding compared to other modeler's efforts either by people's choice (as in an NNL) or from being judged in direct competition.One way isn't better than the other,they're just different.


Good way to put it.
Depends a bit on the caliber of the award/contest and magazine.
A first place award from a GSL against a little picture in a magazine that that reaches a few hundred readers?
Full coverage in a major magazine against a BOS win at a little weekend show with 20 entries?

Another reason I prefer to build for my own amusement...

Magazine would be nice. I've won several awards, after a while they just collect dust. What really means something to me is when someone comes up to me at a show and compliments my work, or asks how I did something, because they wanted to try it themselves. Thats the best compliment you can recieve when someone wants to emmulate your work.

Seeing my little build in a magazine was really cool! Had to show it to the lady sitting next to me on a flight from New York! She said it was nice and went back to reading her novel. I was jazzed and still am!

This one has won many awards, but the best was when it made it into the SAE Merc issue. (SAE#24)

Was picked for the readers Merc section. I bought 10 copies of that issue. :D

Neither, the only thing that would give me more statisfaction of one of my builds would be an HONEST compliment from a fellow model builder that knows the real subject matter very well.

I have never felt happier about my work than when I recently posted a very old build of my 1:12 Bentley and got a lot of kudos and encouragement. I would be happy just to get some nice comments on this forum, judged by a jury of my peers. I think that's what Ben just said.

But in general, I would encourage our members to make constructive criticism of the builds they see on this forum as they see fit, with a little less rah-rah. We are loaded with members who know tons of stuff and can help people get better. Talk about the good, but offer critical opinions if you think they would be helpful. That's the nice thing about the forum that you don't get in contests or the magazine - the give-and-take discussion.

The three biggest awards other then making the magazines for me that had a special feeling is the Ricky Couch memorial award at the GSL, The Goodguys Model D'elegance award at GSL and the Peoples Choice award at the Goodguy Nationals in Ohio. But the Ricky Couch award is by far will be the tops over every thing as it just makes you think of the people in this hobbie he help'ed and if he would have like what I built and put it in his level.

Either would be cool but I recently got asked if my Packard Boattail Speedster I'm displaying at work was a Danbury Mint car. I have seen DM cars and know how nice they are, so for ME that was a great moment.
