Banner/Signature Contest VIII
Posted 09 July 2006 - 11:17 PM
Good luck to all.
The winner of this contest will recieve a copy of 1:18 Diecast Downunder Issue No: 11.
Polls will end: July 16, 2006
Now on to the participants and the entries.
The simplicity of it somewhat reflects my subpar PS skills
I'll toss my hat into the ring with my first entry. I used my Hot Wheels 645ci as the subject matter, added some smoke to the background, a laser BMW logo, and the model number. . .

My second entry, using my Maisto Z8. I wanted to give the banner a sales brochure feel, thus the spec section and the BMW logo and slogan. . .

My humble entry. I decided to go the 2-wheel route for this contest, as BMW has what many consider to be some of the classiest looking bikes on the road. This example certainly qualifies; it is the R1100RT. Many might recognize one in your rear view mirror, and if you do, you will probably want to hope that it is not the "P" model, or you might be getting a speeding ticket!
I attempted to keep it simple by letting the bike speak for itself, and tried to keep a classic, clean look for the final result. Nothing fancy by any means, but it was fun to put together.

This is my entry, as I have not made a banner in awhile due to time constraints. so this is a basic banner, also I did not want to flood it with stuff, I used a photo of my Minichamps DE BMW GTR, as I feel it is a super model, I had to use the rear end of the car as I find it very aggressive from that angle.
I added the BMW logo just to finish it off.
My banner is made using the Bimmer M colours which are represented in the arc across the banner. Underneath the arc, masked by the square pattern, is the BMW logo and a picture of an M3GTR race car. Above the squares is the feature car - Kyosho's M3GTR Street. This pic is from the Kyosho website as I ran out of time to photograph mine. It's a great model and a beautiful car all 'round, so I had to use it here.

Here is mine: Z8 is probably the most beautiful small car. Autoart made a very nice model (and pretty inexpensive on eBay right now) which is featured on the banner.
This is the BMW 635CSi, a gift from a very good friend of mine here at DX (Max Power himself). This car really does a good job of signifying the class many of this era BMWs had, and is definitely one of my favorites. I tried to carry over a sense of class in this banner as well. As usual, it is simple, as it is in line with my PS skills
For my first entry, AUTOart's Z8. Although the styling of most modern BMW's may be controversial, I don't think too many people dislike this modern take on the classic 507.

My second entry is the 3.5 CSL, which is now slumming in Pembroke after residing in much classier digs down in Ohio (thanks Jeff!).

Driving an automatic and thinking you're a skilled driver is like playing Guitar Hero and thinking you can play guitar.
Serious collectors don't buy budget models? Hahahaha...that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard

Where is it written that the more diecast $$$ equals a better diecast?
