And the Winner is . . .

Well, it's been over a week since my last post, so I thought I'd let you all know that the results are in from the FBTB Episode III UCS Contest.

In first place was Pepa Quin, with his ARC-170 fighter.

Coming in second was Olog, with his V-Wing (my personal favorite).

Following in third was wintermoog and his Droid Trifighter.

And, tying for fourth place were badgerboy and Pro/E Jedi, with the UCS General Grievous' Stafighter and P-38 Starfighter, respectively.

Congratulations, guys!

Mechanization Contest

Memory, at Perhaps Plastic Explosives, has an interesting contest. Your goal? Create a "working mechanism" from LEGO. Although no prizes have been specified at this point in time, they have been mentioned in the contest thread. Check it out!

Thanks to ThePlasticJedi for sending this in!

LDraw Monthly Contests hosts 2 monthly contests.

1. Model/Scene of the Month
Using LDraw, create a model or a scene. Fairly basic, but it's turned up some interesting results. There's no prize for this one except for the illustrious glory that will doubtlessly ensue.

2. Part of the Month
If you create a new part in LDraw, you can enter it into this contest. Fairly standard, this contest follows the model of the the former.

Thanks again to Bruce N H for the tip!

Two Vignette Contests

Saber-Scorpion's Lair Forums have two contests running.

2. Song Vig Contest
Like the first, the objective for this contest is to build a vignette, however this one must focus on lyrics from a son. (Though nothing explicit) Again, details are vague, so check it out with the link.

Thank you to Bruce N H for sending this in!
