Thanks Kevin, please build something with construct8or, Steve has given me permission to post this as a anim8or challenge, does anybody know how I can post this on the challenge page?
The scalextric sounds like a really good idea, please email on this.

At least the modelling part is out of the way.

So are the entries expected to be still images or animations? Or either?

Reply to Janro, the answer is either, you may wish to do a still and an animation if you have the time. Look forward to seeing your work.

Hi Ian, don't be disheartened that there are not more entries yet. Things start slow then pick up :)

PS I found it a lot easier to select all the meshes and choose rotate none. it makes it much easier if you export to another program as an example - for lining up things. I didn't realise that when I made my first piece.

Upload your construct8or images to cafe press, and open up a free store, and it's possible for you to create a range of goods, and sell them to the world.

I'm notorious for not doing/completing challenges, but looks like there's a little time and a pretty simply objective, so I guess I'll give this one a shot. For the community.
