Hi all,

I was looking through a few old threads last week and I saw some great pictures, so it gave me an idea..

Welcome to a brand new POTM 'Bonus round' nominations thread. As I want to gather more interest in the POTM contest I have created a special bonus round!!
This is for pictures older than three months that have not been nominated before! There is no date limit!! So if you saw a picture six months or a year ago (or older) that was not nominated, you are free to do so in this contest.
The other POTM contests run as they are, this one does not affect them in any way.

Nominations will close on MONDAY the 13th DECEMBER, UK evening time, I will now extend this contest till WEDNESDAY 15TH DECEMBER, UK EVENING TIME, and Voting will start soon after.


So, on to the rules,

This sounds more complicated than it is, so please read carefully!

Each member gets TWO nominations; you can nominate your own picture and one from someone else. Or both your own, or two from another member.


You must say whose pictures they are. If it’s one of your own, say ‘from my thread’ for the other members picture, say 'from drivinghermads’ thread (I have used Darren as an example)

You may nominate two of your own pictures.
Or you may nominate two pictures from other members.
Or one of your own & one from another member.
You do not have to nominate two pictures, you may nominate just one. It can be your own, or from someone else.
It's TWO pictures max per member nominations, not two of your own and two of someone else's.

Different pictures from the same thread may be nominated.
More than one thread can be nominated from a member. For example if drivinghermad nominates his Nissan Micra picture from one of his threads, I can nominate his VW Polo picture from one of his other threads.

I will take the first 25 nominations.



  • Must be first time posted OLDER THAN THREE MONTHS. I will need the month (and year) of the picture.
  • Must be a picture(s) that has NOT been nominated before (this is for the nominees to check) I will not take previously nominated pictures!
  • Must have a scale model or scale models.
- All photos must have a link to the original thread & you must now say who posted it. & when it's from. If it's your picture, say 'from my thread' If it's from another thread say whose it is (it's just easier for me when I do the Voting thread)


- 1024x768, 250kB maximum sizes - to be honest though, any photo posted can be nominated (this relates to the size restriction, which I'm waiving)


GUYS - PLEASE TAKE NOTICE OF MY REQUEST IN RED ABOVE TO SAY WHERE THE PICTURE COMES FROM, IF YOU DO NOT DO THIS, I WILL NOT ACCEPT THE NOMINATION. IT TAKES ME A LONG TIME TO MAKE THE VOTING THREAD SO THIS HELPS ME A LOT.

- IF YOU JUST SAY 'MY PIC' AND NOTHING ELSE. I WON'T COUNT IT. YOU MUST SAY, MY PICTURE FROM MY THREAD HERE & GIVE THE LINK. OR SAY 'MEMBER NAME' PICTURE FROM THEIR THREAD HERE & GIVE THE LINK.

I HAVE TO BE STRICT AS IT DOESN'T JUST TAKE ME A FEW MINUTES TO CREATE THE CONTEST.
IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW THE RULES, I WILL NOT ACCEPT YOUR NOMINATION. I APPRECIATE THAT I HAVE SWITCHED THEM UP THIS MONTH SO PLEASE READ THE RULES THROUGH THOROUGHLY.

THANKS.
