Well that's sorta why we do these months, to try to get people trying new things! :wink:
You never know until you try... you might end up building something incredibly different than a what a regular 'sci-fi' builder would.

Is this Christmas? I've finally started putting all of my Lego in a usable condition (removing cat urine) and I'm home until late this Month, and it's a Sci-Fi contest. :wub:  The Insectoid Queen shall be pleased.

Yup!

You can enter all three contests!
But you can only have one entry per contest (though you can modify your entry up until end of month).

What contest would a small minifig-scale space fighter classify in?

    Micro space? it is kinda small, about the size of the captains cabin Potc set crammed together

You could make that your avatar since you don't have one.

Otherwise it would probably be in Forbidden Animal Planet, but you couldn't use a minifig :wink:
but it could be minifig scale.

Wow, these prizes are incredible.  Thanks Si-MOCs!  It seems to me the FAPC prizes are quite a step up from the micro sci-fi build which I have been concentrating on so far.   My FAPC idea is of course brilliant although rather obscure... may have to re-think...

I just took 7 pictures,(kinda sloppy) and I'll put them in the forbidden animal thread once I've found out how to get them into my computer and paste them in the thread :wacko:  BTW, I put a cat in the cockpit :grin:

Hehe. You need to go to the main Sci-Fi forum and on the top right area, just down a little from the top there's a button that says "Start New Topic"

If you can't find it try hitting the search key (usually Ctrl-F) and type in "start new topic" and it'll find it for you!

The rest is pretty self explanatory, but if you have other problems feel free to msg me :thumbup:

'

Welcome to EB!

Submitting is easy!
Just create a new post in the Sci-Fi forum with the prefix of either FAPC (for Sci-Fi Animal contest) or MSFC (for the Micro contest), add in your pictures and some text, and you're done!
Easy peasy.
