Default RE: 2006 Design Contest Official rules

They are pretty soft rules for the most part. I guess it feels like scaling down is just one step away from just building from someone else's plan. Not a bad exercise and a valuable learning experience, but does it fit what the contest is about? As for the electrics, I definitely don't think that is what the contest is about. In my mind this contest is to promote scratch building and 1/2A glow power, what's left of it. I'd say that if electrics were allowed, we should scrap the size limit.
