Remember there have been already several persons who have reverse-built the 8065, 8066 and 8067..

Well... I've seen it just for the 8065.
Curious to see about the others.
But please do not post them here. ;)

But we could look at it, as a guess like any other could do.
So everyone should try it himself.

I remember the last year, even the winner, had some mismatches against the original.

Lets see how it goes...

Ya, I've found also an interpretation from another model. :)

Barman (Barebos) made a 8065, 8066 and is working on a 8067. He plan's on making building instructions too, so it wouldn't be fair if anyone would use them.

If any kind of instructions get to be published before the submission period ends, and some participants decide to use them to prepare their submission to the contest, despite unfair I'd say it is also a calculated risk everyone should decide on.

- First, only the first one (the fastest to submit) has a chance to win the contest.
- Second, I'd not want to underestimate anyone's ability to guess the right building steps, but also everyone can make mistakes.
- Whoever is going to guess on their own building instructions, will probably make his submission before making them publicly available.
- On the other end if one publishes his own instructions, is also giving others a better chance to win, in case he made some minor mistakes. Even if it is a single one.

After all it seems to me that everyone has a better chance with his own guess, than copying the guess from someone else. Specially if this one was already submitted in first place.
Also the details about submissions received and who submitted them, won't be disclosed before the 7th of December.

Good luck! :)

PS: As long as the official building instructions from LEGO, won't get published, we are on the fair side, I'd say. :)
