2020 Cold War Era Berlin Challenge

08 November 2020 - 03:23 PM

Hello all!

 

Today, November 8th 2020 marks the last day of operation of Berlin's Tegel (TXL) airport, so why not look back at the city's airports history with a challenge, the:

The 2020 Cold War Era Berlin Challenge!

 

As usual, there are a few rules:

  • One entry per challenger
  • Must be an original design (or, if using a pre-existing brand, an original aircraft/era/livery combination)
  • Time period is 1948-1969
  • Aircraft displayed must be a possible sight at one of Berlin airports during the aforementioned era : it can be a regular or one-off visitor at either Berlin's Tempelhof, Tegel or Schönefeld airports - meaning it can be an occidental airline/aircraft, or one from the eastern block, or even one from a non aligned country.
  • Passenger, cargo, government, private - all is possible. Just add a little explanation.

 

Designs will arbitrarily and subjectively be graded by myself on:

  • Originality /10 - the design must be your own as much as possible, and differ from the crowd (both on this contest and in the gallery) as much as possible
  • Realism /10 - check your facts, add a little backstory, a few lines of description, make it as realistic as possible
  • Quality of execution /10 - You have 4 whole weeks to work on your designs, so take your time to make it as nicely presented as possible

You must submit your designs by noon Central European Summer Time (CEST - UTC +2) on December Sunday the 6th, and hopefully we will be able to judge the entries and the results will be available in the following days.

 

Please don't "reserve" a space, forget about it and then never post anything, it's pointless and ridiculous frankly, but still feel free to discuss here.

 

Side note : if this edition is a success, there'll be a follow-up 1969-1989 version :)

 

Good luck to everyone, I hope to see some great submissions!

 


2020 Private Aircraft Challenge

Hello all,

 

I hope you're doing well and that confinement is not boring you out of your minds, but if so, I got the perfect answer:

The 2020 Private Aircraft Challenge!

 

As usual, there are a few rules:

  • One entry per challenger
  • Must be an original design
  • Aircraft displayed must be owned by a private entity, or used for private usage : let's say you're a Canadian rapper leasing a 767, that's ok. But no government aircraft or company aircraft.
  • Any time period, any country, everything else is up to you.
  • In this situation, bigger isn't necessarily better. I don't want to see a flock of A380s, a Piper Cub might win too, who knows!

 

Designs will arbitrarily and subjectively be graded by myself and a friend not participating in this forum on:

  • Originality /10 - the design must be your own as much as possible, and differ from the crowd as much as possible
  • Presentation /10 - everything besides your aircraft, the way it is presented, its backstory maybe, anecdotes, juggling bears, doesn't have to be based on your mad photoshop skills, everyone can score high points here
  • Customisation /10 - An off the shelf aircraft isn't much fun to look at. The sky's the limit here. Customise your designs however you want, effects, shine, chrome, gadgets, waterbeds, pop-corn machine
  • Wow factor /3 - a bonus category that can make a difference in the end, based on the overall submission

You must submit your designs by noon Central European Summer Time (CEST - UTC +2) on Sunday the 10th, and hopefully we will be able to judge the entries and the results will be available in the following days.

 

Take inspiration wherever you can, look at the header picture, take you time to rework your entry, and don't forget to enter S K Y's World's Ugliest Colour Challenge and Fastball621's 2020 Balkans and Greece Design Challenge.

 

Please don't "reserve" a space, forget about it and then never post anything, it's pointless and ridiculous frankly, but still feel free to discuss here.

 

Good luck to everyone, I hope to see some great submissions!

 


2020 less than 50 seats Design Challenge

12 April 2020 - 09:32 PM

Hello all!

 

Keeping in line with БобСоветскийшфид☭'s cargo brand & 1950s challenge, I propose another one with the theme "less than 50 seats". The goal here is to showcase the community's creativity, hopefully having people use templates only seldom displayed in the gallery :)

 

Just a few rules:

  • One Airline Per Competitor
  • Must be an original design (no recycling! Greta is unhappy!)
  • Aircraft used must be configured with less than 50 seats
  • Any time period, any country, everything else is up to you.

Designs will arbitrarily and subjectively be graded on

  • Originality
  • Cohesiveness
  • Quality of execution

You must submit your designs by noon Central European Summer Time (CEST - UTC +2) on Saturday the 18th, and hopefully I will be able to judge the entries and the results will be available the next day.

 

Enjoy, and thanks to БобСоветскийшфид☭ for letting me steal his idea!
