Howdy all,

I am going to be updating various things to do with the forum over the next 3-6 months to try and breath some life in to the place ::thumb::

As such I feel it's time to update the main logo for the forum with a view to also getting some merchandise made such as stickers, tee-shirts, beanies etc.

Now my art skills are not the best, so I thought I would start a competition and ask you the users to submit your designs and then vote for the top three designs, so I can pick the overall winner.

The prize will be at least a free t-shirt and sticker with the design on, the knowledge that you designed the forum logo and hopefully a few more bits if I can lay my hands on them.

The rules are simple, As many entries as you like but please make them in individual posts as it makes it easier for me to create the poll for voting. The design needs to be simple and clear and contain the forum name (ScaleRC.co.uk) please post your entries in this thread.

and that's it.

If any one would like to use the line drawings from the current logo I can supply them in various formats plus a I have a few others which I will post up in a minute.

I will close the thread and start the voting on November the 30th 2017. In the new year

These are the other truck outlines I have.



















Credit needs to go to Damo who created these images a number of years ago.

I always wondered who drew the line-drawing trucks, they're really cool and unique.

I'll definitely have a go and throw some ideas in the pot, this one is right up my street; I wouldn't have a chance in a build-off type comp!

I'm no good with this stuff either. But out of the loit shown above the Hilux and 'Mog are the best - they're most recognisable out of all of them.

I finally started to play about with this the last two nights, here's a provisional font choice with some different colourways and treatments - I also did a couple of 'banner' versions with the truck doodles I made when I first started on here.























I could keep on changing colours and design choices infinitely so appreciate any input, cheers

Great work Grasshopper, these are my personal favourites from your designs but then I have always been a big fan of your line drawings ... I think these would translate into a fantastic T-shirt print perhaps logo on the front breast and one of your line drawings (favourite truck?) on the back ...

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated!

I'd be really proud and excited to have anything to do with the re-brand. It's a tricky one because it was pretty much a blank canvas - I usually work a little better when I've got some boundaries to work to (eg 'It's got to be green, in Times New Roman and contain a pic of a kitten' or something..!)

I had always planned to do at least one version using your original line drawings and also another version vector tracing a cool photo from one of the forums finest's but I've just been snowed under recently.

Pete, knocked up a quick 'mog for you last night:



I'll polish up a couple of the banner ideas that most seem to like when I get a couple of hours (with a mog addition lol). My trucks are all still boxed up from our house move in Oct so it's nice to be at least doing something to do with the hobby at the moment!

Finally got around to getting this somewhere near where it needs to be:


Main web page banner


Plain banner without logo

I put some legs in the background to reinforce the 'scale' aspect otherwise these could have just been normal size trucks..


Main logo


Simplified logo (for smaller applications)



One colour version (for decals etc.)


I would supply all the individual elements as svg files so anyone else can play about with them for various applications if needed.

Constructive criticism welcome. I hope people like them ::yikes

If there are specific sizes for the web banner or anything, let me know and I can amend the design/s to suit

Two Toyotas and no Jeep? ::eek

Proving that even awesome work (like yours!!) begets criticism from neandethals on the intertubes ::doh::

Haha, oops didn't think about there being two Toyota's tbh! Jeez, if I had to do a truck for everyone's tastes then there wouldn't be any room for the logo ::lolz

I could just do one MAZ that takes up the whole space I s'pose :hmmm: :-)
