Contest goal:

"Practice makes perfect," and many artisans take steps to ensure their final product will be what they had in mind. A "maquette" is a small sculpture made as a trial or sketch for a larger piece.

Your task in this contest is to take a shot of a maquette. Any style is acceptable; an airplane, a boat or even a house. Good luck!

Status: finished. Check out the winners below!

jawshoewhah: I'm a little confused as far as what we can shoot. I'm going to assume toys are ok? Mod clarification please? ( 5 years and 1433 days ago )
ziggyx2003: Does this mean any small scale model? ( 5 years and 1433 days ago )
Lamantine: yes ( 5 years and 1433 days ago )
k5683: Darn it! I just got rid of a model house at my garage sale. ( 5 years and 1433 days ago )
Contest Moderator: As per the contest guidelines: A small sculpture made as a trial or sketch for a larger piece, so something that is also available as a large sixe object, ie: boat, plane, house, see for an ideal example. ( 5 years and 1431 days ago )
jawshoewhah: So no toys or what? ( 5 years and 1429 days ago )
kyricom: There seem to be many entries in this contest that aren't made as a trial for a larger piece ( 5 years and 1428 days ago )
ziggyx2003: True, but they are very hard to come by, I have made numerous phonecalls, to local council, architects, arts college and no luck. ( 5 years and 1427 days ago )
kyricom: That may be true, ziggy, but it doesn't make other things automatically on theme. There are often contests I can't enter because I can't find what they want around where I live. ( 5 years and 1427 days ago )
ziggyx2003: I agree with you and living in a smaller town am in the same boat as far as entries are concerned. Of course this does not mean I may not try it on, entries that are by some deemed off theme have won or placed in the past. ( 5 years and 1426 days ago )

This "little town" is a loose mock up of some building types we have in our town. We use these buildings at work for training. We "simulate" different scenarios (a fire shown here) and then simulate tactics, command, etc. as we would in a real life scenario. (5 years and 1426 days ago)
