ValourCon 9

April 27-28, 2018

Contest Theme

Canada 150


Special Theme: What If

What - If Special Theme Guidelines "What If" means exactly how it sounds. Your imagination is the only limiting factor whether it is a 'almost could have been Canadian Air Force F-15 Eagle' to an RCMP Batmobile car, Luftwaffe 1946 to an Israeli Air Force Me-262. Your imagination from subtle to weird and wacky, is the only limiting factor. Conversion work,scratch building, and painting in this theme would be paramount.
