IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS!

I been thinking of doing a very HARD ( and I mean HARD) modelling challenge.
It would be based on a real life object, and people would have a limited amount of time....
I would call it:
THE HARDCORE MODELLING CHALLENGE
What do you guys think?

Are we talking speed modelling here, or just complexity?

What's wrong with the current challenges, Roberto? I'd say those are pretty challenging.

I think he means more like mini-challenges Leigh.

EDIT: Bet me to it.

My only concern is that it is so hard I would be amazed in anybody can finish it.

Well, that's the point of the challenge, no? To be challenging?
If we don't finish it, it's always a learning experience.

What in the hundred and eight names of Marduk are you scheming, Roberto? I can just see it now: Model the entire cast of Battlestar Galactica, plus their spaceships, to scale, in one week.
