View Full Version : Competition idea??

Well i dont think we have had one for a while....
But following on from what Jim said and some very nice comments i had for my bullet pen...
How about a competition, on something that dosen't resemble a kit pen? :funny:
It just needs some 'blue sky' thinking or 'out of the box' thinking....
Not too difficult....any interest??

Great idea:thumbs:

There was one a few years ago, but I think most were kits. http://www.penturners.co.uk/penturners-competition-forum/2167-octobers-competition-entries.html

I don't think it has to be bullet related....just something a bit different to a std kit....stop end turned.....clip less....brass/ali...and open to all abillity

If we can use kit parts as a basis, it might provide a bit of a challenge for those of us new to turning to get our teeth into :thumbs:

Needs plenty of lead time.

Sounds like a great idea - especially as maybe variants out from a kit or part kit based pen?

If you want to put a little flesh on the bones Mark, we can easily make a competition happen along those lines.

Feel free to chip in anyone.

Right i really must put some meat on the bones of this idea!!
How about 4 weeks to design and build a kit pen.....but it must not resemble the original kit? And no fat slimlines!!
A stopped end turned pen, a change of shape or selfmade center band/accents....
How does that sound to people???:thinks:
