N Scale Vehicle Assn. Model Build Off starts tomorrow!
« on: October 10, 2011, 12:28:11 AM »
Hey everyone,
I mentioned a vehicle build off in a previous thread. This is mainly a N Scale Vehicle Assn. project but I would like to cross post this in other forums as well. I would like to see what you guys can come up with as well.

It looks like the NSVA members have chosen model will be the CMW international R190 truck, which is available direct from CMW for $6 per set shipped. I recommend you get a tractor trailer set (all sets cost the same) since you will have some extra parts left over.

The rules are simple. The model must be based upon the vehicle selected by the
group. For the sake of clarity, I will define vehicle as the cab portion of the
model. The cab must be used for the project; all other parts are up to you. You
may use whatever wheels, frames, bumpers, and beds you like, as long as the
donor model's cab is used.

The cab can be moderately modified. This includes extending the cab (adding a
crew cab to the Atlas Ford LNT 9000 for example), or modification to the fenders
or grill (modifying an Athearn Mack R into a Brockway for example).


The goal of this challenge is to better our modeling skills, share tips and
tricks, spark our imagination and create unique models that will gain attention.
Maybe we can even have the entries published in N-Scale Magazine, if you like.

You've crossed the walls, excelled
Further along through their hell
All for my heart, I watch you kill
You always have, you always will
Now spread your wings and sail out to me
