Welcome to the 4th DiecastXchange Model Car Tuning Contest.

The DX Staff and I welcome you to the 3rd Tuning Contest of this forum.
The previous contests were a blast and we want to do it again.
This contest is to see what you guys can put together, to compete to others, its not about winning! But is for us all to have a little fun.
All Contestants will be running against each other, to have one clean simple overview.

The rules are going to be broadly the same as last years https://www.diecastx...tuning-contest/ There may be a change here or there, but please use these as a guide to this years, The rules will be posted in the coming days, also the dates for the contest.

So please start thinking about a model that you would like to enter in this years contest now, if you do want to enter then just reply below saying that you would like to take part, you do not need to post the model or what you are going to be doing to the model yet.


Here are the simple rules:
- Each contestant must be an active member of the DX forum with a minimum of 30 posts or membership over 3 months.
- Anybody can build what they want, There is no Theme.
- It must be scale 1:18
- Before, Whilst In Production and Finalized Pictures are necessary. 2x 'Before', 2x 'Whilst In Production' and 6x 'Finalized' photos. (Example photos are below. More photos are welcomed.
- Minimum of 10 Photos total.
- The finished model should have a natural background. No fancy photo shopped pictures please, keep it clean and simple, good enough to tell the details. If the photos are not sufficient enough, we will let you know to please re-take them.
- Each build cannot be posted in the forum already.
- The model being modified must not be a model that has previously been modified unless it has been purchased pre-modified by a model manufacture that build modified models from other model manufactures.

Any member taking part MUST submit via PM to myself of the model with at least 2x photos of the model that is going to be used, the member MUST also submit the plan of what they are intending to do to modify the model and also an outline of the intended final model.

Here are examples of how the photos and short listed mod/info list should be. It doesn't have to be like this but in this direction please.

1:18 Nissan Skyline BNR34
- AutoArt Base
- Volk racing TE-37 custom rims, painted in Titanium Gold, color detailed lug nuts (Mounted so they still spin and steer)
- Lowered suspension
- Custom Brembo brake discs and calipers
- Carbon fiber hood, clear coated
- Custom fitting aluminum exhaust pipe, with custom Laser engraving
- Sport seats with carbon fiber shell
- Takata racing harness
- Carbon fiber details added (if not visible in the photos please ad to the description)
- Engine details (please add a photo and a list of which details if needed)
Once all members have submitted their before photos and plan and outline of final model, I (Speedy) will post the before photos and plan and final outline in a thread, then a thread will be started for each member taking part started by myself where I will re-post the before photos and plan and outline of final model, the members must then post update photos of the on-going build progress regularly but MUST NOT post images of the final model, they MUST be submitted to me via PM and I will then post these in an update to the original thread, then a vote will be held.


Dates.
Starts 1st March 2019 (Entries accepted and the relevant model thread started the build can commence.
Close for submissions 1st April 2019*
Models must be completed by 1st December 2019
