Jim posted a topic in LEGO Technic and Model TeamTECHNIC A PLUS B MODEL CONTEST DESCRIPTION Design the A and B model for an LEGO Technic set. Try to make it as official as possible. DEADLINE Since you need to design two models, you will get more time than usual. The allotted time for this contest is around 10 weeks. Deadline date is Sunday 31st of January, 2016. Contest will be closed on Monday 1st of February, OR LATER. Disclaimer: I will close the contest when I see fit and when I have the time to process the results. This can be later than the deadline date. Please don't complain about this not being fair and all. RULES AND REGULATIONS The following section describes the contest specific and general rules and regulations. But before that, please take notice of a simple motto regarding the Eurobricks Contests: CONTESTS ARE FOR FUN! Of course there's competition, but at the end of the day, LEGO is just a hobby and the main goal for each of us is to have fun! CONTEST SPECIFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS Each model (both A and B) needs to fit in 10.000 cubic studs, meaning that WxHXL (in studs) cannot exceed 10.000 (see examples below). The B-model (alternate model) needs to be built using only parts which are used in the main model (just like an official B-model). No extra parts can be used for the B-model. Moving parts like a crane can be bigger than the size limit, but the models need to be able to fit in the dimensions provided. Taking off things is not allowed. If something (the crane) folds, while attached to the vehicle, it's okay. Some studded parts and panels are okay, but no model team finish. Pneumatics are permitted. 3rd party strings, hoses and rubber bands are permitted. LEDs are NOT permitted. Pullback Motor is NOT permitted. Electronics (PF elements, SBricks and Mindstorms) are NOT permitted. EXAMPLES FOR SIZE LIMIT A model is 25 studs long, 15 studs high and 11 studs wide. This means the model has a dimension of 4.125 cubic studs, so it's allowed. A model is 60 studs long, 10 studs high and 11 studs wide. This means the model has a dimension of 6.600 cubic studs, so it's allowed. A model is 60 studs long, 15 studs high and 25 studs wide. This means the model has a dimension of 22.500 cubic studs, so it's NOT allowed. GENERAL RULES AND REGULATIONS The contest is open to all EB members (also new members).
