I am having many difficulties and making a lot of mistakes with my little diorama made from scratch, and it takes a lot of effort and patience, but at the same time it is an interesting learning experience. I hope it will be worth the effort.

15 entries received already and there's still the better part of three months left until the deadline! Looks like the 2018 contest is shaping up to be a big one. Can it be the biggest ever? Make sure you enter!

@dinotoyforum Just a question; In your experience, during submission time, have there been any 'peak times' for entry submission? (e.g. near the deadline)

Since deciding to go a different route from last year, I am quite excited to report that I have completed my contest entry for this year and will be sending it in shortly.  I would encourage all members to get the excitement and submit something interesting ... the contest entries are getting more amazing every year, so GO FOR IT!!!  ;) ;) ;)

Well,.... my point is to deceide which way to go.... I now got two completly diffent things laying around more or less ready to be submitted, and some two or three more ideas in my mind that feel more "right" from now and then..... so.... yeah..... I still need some time to convince myself this way or another :D

Just sent mine in after some last minute digital cleanup work.  ;) 

My original plan was way too ambitious for this year, so I'll have to work on it next Winter when I have a little more time. I think the one I submitted is more interesting to look at than my past entries.  Most complicated does not necessarily = the most enjoyable viewing.  I'll be very curious to see the reaction.   8)

Patience. I'm bursting from the wish to see them all,  immediately!  But we need patience.

I just wanted to share a sneak preview of my diorama:


Starring these beautiful figures, it's a shoo-in to win!

I'd give my vote for all the cheekiness that went into the creation :D
