Here is the first contest:

Build a Space Fuel Tanker. It can be a refueling tanker for fighters, a large Fuel transport, or just about anything that can haul fuel for any reason. Here are the guidelines:

1. Must be a member of this group.
2. The creation must be your own...not a friends, not something you saw on another site...And it must be made specifically for this contest, NO PREVIOUSLY BUILT MOC's.
3. Must be submitted by NOON cst, Dec. 1st.
4. It has to be OBVIOUSLY a Fuel Tanker!
5. No Admin's or Mod's can enter.
6. The usually stuff applies...

The PRIZE is this:

First place will receive a $50 Lego gift card.
Second place will get a small lego kit (to be named later)
Third place will get, well, nothing.

The Admins will judge the contest and will decide on the winners on Dec 1st.

Post a link here in the reply if you want to enter!

Great idea for the contest sounds great. This LUG is getting off to a great start.

Definitely a good Idea. Are hovercraft allowed (as in lunar rover style.)?
supreme eyes [deleted] 10 years ago
I was thinking more of a interstellar type of tanker but go ahead and build it and we'll see.
JimmytheJ 10 years ago
ooh, I could probably do this... it might take some Bricklinking, but otherwise, quite simple!
The Pumpkin Man 10 years ago
Also, are renders eligible?
The Pumpkin Man 10 years ago
And multiple entries?
supreme eyes [deleted] Posted 10 years ago. Edited by dkromp (admin) 10 years ago
Multiple entries yes, renders no.
The Pumpkin Man 10 years ago
Ok then.

Are you looking for any particular size, or how much fuel the tanker would be able to haul? I really don't have enough bricks to make something decent more than thirty studs long.
supreme eyes [deleted] 10 years ago
The size is up to you.
mangos-are-awesome 10 years ago

admin
dkromp 10 years ago
Brickeye already touched base on this and you can create up two entries.

Nice, can a diorama be included?
HenkDeVries 10 years ago
My creation is halfway there =D I only need to finish the main structure. And after that I only need to put some more detail into it and then I can post it.

I'm sure it's going to be something that you guys have never seen before.
admin
dkromp 10 years ago
yes a diorama can be added.
cheerful books [deleted] 10 years ago
Currently making a second engine. Fuel tank-like pieces are really hard to find!
admin
dkromp 10 years ago

admin
dkromp 10 years ago
bricklink is great i think the price went down.
cheerful books [deleted] 10 years ago
For the U.K? in thew middle of an economic recession? No way.

Anyway, I found some old round(ish) pieces in the greeble box.

Would it be permissible to have, say, several smaller ships in the process of refueling?
admin
dkromp 10 years ago
yes that shows the moc works
supreme eyes [deleted] 10 years ago
Ca'gerrin....that would be great!
Cagerrin 10 years ago

dkromp 10 years ago
the entry must be just built if it was in another contest the entry is disqualified and you must start again.
LegoLord. 10 years ago
It was just built,I built it last week and entered in into two different contests,this one and one on classic space. It is not old.~LL
admin
dkromp 10 years ago
sorry but the moc was already posted disqualifying the moc sorry but that is noted in the rules.
cheerful books [deleted] 10 years ago
That Is highly unfair. You should be ashamed of yourself.
admin
dkromp 10 years ago
who should be ashamed of their selves.
supreme eyes [deleted] 10 years ago
To clarify, I am allowing LegoLord's entry. I have spoken with him, and have agreed to allow it in to this contest. Being that I am the one paying for this contest, my opinion out ranks dkromp's.
admin
dkromp 10 years ago
true and that is fine as long as you discussed this.

Am I right in thinking that this contest is over? Being in the U.K doesn't help with the CST thing.
supreme eyes [deleted] 10 years ago
Yes, contest is officially over...I will be announcing the winners by this time tomorrow.
cheerful books [deleted] 10 years ago
Thanks.
supreme eyes [deleted] 10 years ago
