Should we change the rules, so that the model has be finished by the deadline?
Doesn't matter if it is started 6 months ago or yesterday. Some people might have 10 days to paint in 6 six months and some might have 10 days to paint in 15 days. This would enable all to enter their finished models in the competition. (as long as it fits the criteria)
Also if you started it this month and fully finished it you could get a bonus point or something like that?
I can see advantages and disadvantages each way, so I'll mull it over for a bit.
