Hi all : )

I was browsing through the forums and came across this dusty old subsection. I liked the idea of a simple holiday-themed game that Eddy and Preisman have done a few years ago. So, as we all need some extra cheers this year, I figured why not do it again, even if it's just a half-ish version?

So, I figured we run this from the 11th to the 25th, for a total of 15 days. And if there's a tie score, we may run to the 31st, for the fun of it.

No actual prize other than the funz :)

The rules are a copy from the previous contests with some small changes:

The Game:  Essentially the format is similar in form an 'Advent Calendar' and will run for the 15 days up until Christmas....

Every day (I will shoot for early morning US-EST, mid-day EU, evening East Asia/Aussie. Also I may or may not post in different hours to keep you guessing and give opportunities for forum members from all over the globe to have a shot at the first three spots) I will post a snippet of a photo of one of the models in my collection....they shouldn't be too obscure.... and you'll probably get them straight off....

If you can't guess it, you may look for it in my thread: https://www.diecastx...y-toyota-racer/ Don't take too long though, as they will go qucik :P

The Rules:.....the first person of the day to post the correct answer of what it is will get 3 points, the second person of the day (NB it wlll also be the same answer) will get 2 points, and the 3rd person will get one point...(NB once 3 people have got it right no more count for that day!)

** the answer should be in '3M' format....i.e.  Manufacturer, Marque and Model...**


I'll (try to!  :rolleyes: ) keep the scoreboard below updated.......and the person (and runner up!) who has the highest number of points by Christmas day will be pronounced the winners...

The game begins December 11th, no sign-up needed, just add your answer for the day whenever you feel like it.

Hint: It's exactly what you expect it not to be :P

Remember, we need the manufacturer of the minature, the brand of the car and the actual model name.

I will try to reveal the answer once we have three right answers or as soon as possible after the third correct post, depending on my schedule/time zones.

Have fun!
