awesome!! ive got a great idea! One question... my idea involves me RECREATING a different LEGO model, released by LEGO. i dont want to be TOO speciffic, but its a city RELATED set. If i find instructions on how LEGO built it, can i do something very similar to it?

to be more speciffic, heres an example:
trying to copy a rock building technique.

will this be allowed? i hope i didnt confuse anyone :pir-laugh:
visit my youtube channel for all the major lego news reports from sites like brickset, eurobircks, etc. here at http://www.youtube.com/shonenshindo

Copying a rock technique is fine, but I would suggest you don't copy anything else. A city MOC won't get you very far in this contest. :pir-wink:

Hi there!
I am currently building a french 80 gun ship of the line in 1:52 scale (gundeck length 116cm). Since i made good progress, i assume that the hull will be done until the end of october/beginning of november. Rigging will take an awful amount of time, so i had the idea to put a roof on the hull and present it as a ship "in ordinary" for the PtVII contest in the large category.  :pir-classic:
This symbolizes the calm before the storm quite good in my opinion.

Well, I also have to say that I am really happy, that a forum like this exists. :pir-cry_happy:

Btw, what do you have to do to become a "MOC expert"?

I think you have to be one...  :pir_laugh2:
(it's all up to the staff's discretion, as everything is around here, but they're pretty fair generally  :pir-wink:  )

I'm really looking forward to your ship. I hope you get to enter it in time for the competition.

A MOC expert is someone who has demonstrated that they have a special talent with LEGO. The best way to become one is not to ask to be one, demonstrate that you are one, and wait until the staff pick up on it. :pir-wink:

And I look foward to your MOC. :pir-sweet:

You know i've actually found it easier to make a non-violent pirate moc than a violent gory one where someones getting put head first into a cannon.
I'm finding this contest is better than last years because it really challenges some of us more blood thirsty pirates to be peaceful :pir-classic:

You can't

You have to create a user on for example photobucket.com

When you've uploaded the pictures to your photobucket album in the correct size (800x600 pixel maximum)

you post your pictures in your thread hereon eurobricks.

find your picture's link adress and place these two brackets around the adress:

before the adress and then at the end of the adress

Good luck mate! But there's no need to speed things up, you've got a whole month to go. :pir-wink:
On a side note, I should start with my small devision... :pir-hmpf:

I can't believe that the contest is going to run for 2 months, that's a long time.
I have to finish taking pics of my large entry and I am yet to build my small entry, I'v got a couple of ideas though, I also need to resize my medium division pics.

2 months is a long time indeed, but some people might need that time to order bricks to build something large. I'm sure some people are doing that. :pir-wink:

I should hurry building my entries. November is going to be a busy month for me and I don't know how much time I have.  :pir-hmpf_bad:
Perhaps I have the chance to present you guys something though. :pir_laugh2:

Like Teddy told me on Legoworld:
You have always time to build with LEGO, but LEGO hasn't always priority.

It would fall under the large division, but that's just what I think so I'm not sure. I wouldn't post it until they tell you which will probably be sometime today.
