Free Model Contest #5

I wanted to host another contest to feature some of the great free models out there.

So, here are the rules

1) Contest will run from now until July 1, 2017 23:59:59 PST. Should be plenty of time if to want to tackle a Digital Navy ship or a Yamaha motorcycle.

2) Post a thread "build report" with pictures (if possible) while you are building the model. Add "Free Model #5" to the thread title to feature contest threads. Example: Free Model #5 – Digital Navy Ambrose. Add valid link somewhere in the thread so others may download model also. Please take picture(s) of finished model and post in thread.

3) Model must be available freely on the internet with a valid link. Model must be a legitimate download. Piracy is not acceptable in this forum. Model must exist as a complete download at the beginning of this contest. Sorry, no designing as you go.

All modifications are allowed. Recoloring, additional parts & extra detailing are all acceptable.

Entrants may enter as many times as you want.

Entries will be judged by forum members by PM. Judging will remain open for 2 weeks after the end of contest so members may cast votes.

Prizes will be announced at a later date. (trust me they're worth it)

Contest host retains the right to modify contest rules, categories, prizes and special awards at any time.

Feel free to PM me with questions and clarifications of rules.

Thank you in advance for your participation and let building begin!

Sounds interesting, but you referenced Digital Navy - are there any valid links to those downloads any more? I haven't been able to get the site to work for over a year now.

Right... now click "Downloads" and try to download any of the models.

Only the links in White are Downloadable. Now, is this Contest open to all Genres or just specific ones?

Just to clarify, rescaling is OK?

Yes, and only 1 is white, and that link is broken. Yet the OP specifically referenced Digital Navy models as potential entries into this contest. But without a valid link, by the OPs own contest rule, they wouldn't be allowed.

So I ask again - am I missing something? Are there valid links for the Digital Navy models somewhere?

Also, what about Uhu02 models? Sure you have to jump through some hoops to get them, but they are free and available.

The way I read the rules I thought Toddlea was merely suggesting a source of free models. He also mentioned Yamaha. I'd assume any FREE download (Except Pirated) would qualify.

Umm? Toddlea ... please clarify if re-scaling is permitted or not?

Incidentally, if any one is interested, the last post on Digital Navy Facebook was way back in January. Can Admin throw any light? Is Roman still around?

I tried to purchase the Digital Navy Fletcher Class destroyer about 2 months ago and all I get on any of the destroyer selections is "Out of Stock". How can a digital file be out-of-stock?

I apologize for bringing up the question above, since it has nothing to do with the main stream of this thread.
