Da Rules!!!
« on: June 17, 2012, 06:17:51 AM »
Well folks,  just like in the real world, every once in a while we are pleasantly surprised by announcement of the existence of a "Black Project" coming into the "White World".  And so, just like that, here is a GB with hardly any warning or prior announcement.  The "Black Projects" GB!!! 

Here are the rules (they may self destruct after reading...):
  • Have Fun!!!
  • As the name says, the theme is "Black Projects" - so anything secretive, stealthy, skunkworks style, black or even just colored black (thus plenty of room for night fighters or SR-71s)...you get the idea  It also doesn't need to be an aircraft (remember Sea Shadow).
  • Any medium is welcomed - so physical models, Pixels/profiles and stories (and anything else if you can think of it) are all welcome.
  • Creativity encouraged as is collaboration.
  • Duration is 18 Jun 2012 to 31 Jul 2012.  An extension may be granted, but only a short one and only if the Moderator (Ben, aka Taiidantomcat) feels like it.
  • There will be prizes! Physical creations and pixels/stories will be judged separately.
  • Any questions are to be directed to the Moderator (Taiidantomcat).
  • See Rule 1!
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

You can't outrun Death forever.
But you can make the Bastard work for it.

Ben,

As something different, would Black Project Patches such as below be eligible for this?



Regards,

Greg

Oooooo, nice choice guys!  As soon as the Falklands GB finishes I'll definitely be in with a few ideas.

BTW...since when was there a rule 3?!  :o

 I'm reasonably certain that rule 9 is trying to kill me. Therefore, I must reply. ( I'm in. )

...  just colored black ...

How much? Totally, like SR-71? High viz national markings, like WWII night fighters? Some colored details, like spinner or rudder?

My project could be of this  ^^^^  kind.

    An extension may be the only way we get some finished entries  :( I think I can finish mine in a couple days...

    I finished my entry, but I haven't had the time to take pics and post them yet. I'm currently out of town, but hopefully I'll get this taken care of on Monday assuming there's no hitches in my return trip.
