Some very good points raised by both Chris and William.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking Minicraft, but Minicraft had hoped for boosted sales of the kit by releasing this competition. Realistically they wanted a seasoned model builder to pay top dollar for a kit, it's shipping, building it to 'out-of-the-box' standards, photograph it and submit it for possible use. The problem with that is what does a seasoned model builder do with a standard built kit. Selling is an option, but it's the shipping of such a fragile item. So most stay away from buying such things. Waste of money too if you have to strip the model down for spares right after building it.

It would have been more easy for them to find a model builder from day one. Give them a free kit. Colours charts and left them to build it. One of these kits, done properly, takes a lot of hours (not to mention money for materials). As much as it is nice to have it featured on a box, still doesn't really make up for the time spent on building one out of your own pocket.

Plus, about 90% of us model makers on here would buy a Titanic kit to modify and add PE sets.
