    For anyone that submitted before the original deadline I will reset their entry count and they can submit new entries up to the limit. Their original entries will remain and be eligible as well.

    I'll reset the entry counters on July 12, the original end-date. So, if someone were planning to submit photos already and hadn't yet, they could take advantage of that and submit now and still be able to submit a full set again later in the summer.

    I think 'speared' is more likely the apt term having watched that video you posted. Incidentally, that might be a really cool action shot.

    Bump, bump. Fall regionals for people are coming up. Bring your cameras, cell phones, onboard cameras, whatever you have.

    I have been looking at the photos posted elsewhere on the forum. I have to say that there sure are a lot of nicely detailed ships. It will be fun to see the photos that are submitted for this contest.

    I am now in a club that expects a greater level of detail than the other club I was in. I have a lot of catching up to do on my detailing skills. Hopefully I will have a decent photo or two to post in the near future.

    Less than 2 weeks to go.

    Honestly, there aren't many submissions right now (a bit disappointed in that, but that's the way it goes sometimes), so entering gives you a good chance.

    I have not been able to follow this and many other threads as of late due to our battling schedule here.
    We still have one more battle in less than three weeks. I will try to get some photos posted up for this.
    But time is not my friend just now.
    Would you all consider moving the cut-off date another week or two later?

    After thinking about it more. I would like to withdraw my suggestion to wait another week or two.
    I have so many photos that I can't wait to post. But I also have way too many other things going on that
    will keep me from getting very serious about posting the photos.
    So I will post my photos as my spare time permits.
    I don't need motivation. I just need to find or make the time.
