As a builder, what would mean more to you, or be the biggest compliment for one of your builds, winning a award, or getting your build in a magazine?

Magazine for sure, over the years I've had a couple of my builds appear in magazines. Very cool feeling.

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.

I had 1 in the IPMS Journal and 2 in the 2012 SA contest issue. Firsts for me after all these years.

Depends on the award .... If I won people's choice at the NNL east then I would be thrilled ... and be in magazines. ^_^

IT would be great to be in a Magazine, but it is also great to hear compliments of fellow builders.

Well, I don't take my models to shows so I guess I would never get an award or be in a magazine! I tend to build for my own satisifaction and while I think I build a decent model, I am too critical of my work to take it to a show and let others judge it.

In the end, I enjoy this hobby and have never felt the need to build contest winning models or seek fame and recognition.

Magazine.

MCM featured a local show several years ago and I had three cars photographed. That really meant a lot to me.

Neither. I'm happy when the guys in the club like my builds.

Does it make me shallow if I say I like and want both? I got into the latest contest annual and man it made my week. I love winning awards at contests. I work hard on my models to make them the best I can. If they are recognized either by folks here on the forum or by awards it gives me a complete warm and fuzzy.

Yeah I guess it does make me shallow, but I really don't care. As a character flaw, it's pretty minor.

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.
