  • move
Welcome to September's Model of the Month contest!

The September Model of the Month contest is open for entries.

Please also take a moment to read through the rules, regarding bases, structures and figures.
Please submit your entries to jessica(dot)cooper(at)aeroscale(dot)co(dot)uk

All models finished during the month of September are eligible.

The Rules
Submissions follow the rules as follows:

1. The model should be a recent one that you have completed in the past few months, ideally in the month the contest is running. This rule is based on an honour system and we hope everyone will comply with it. More than one entry per user is permitted provided the models completed comply with this criteria. Please do not submit a model to the contest more than once. The winner of the previous month's contest is not elligible to win the current contest, but is not prohibited from entering.

2. The photos should be of a single aircraft-related model against a plain background (white or Blue preferred, but other neutral colours are acceptable. If your model is painted in light colours then a darker background is preferable) not attached to any base or with any figures. If the model is built gear-up, it may be displayed on a simple stand. It must be clearly marked as your entry with the photo titled "Contest Entry (month)" with the month replaced by the name of the month you are entering i.e. January for January etc. Do not include watermarks, text or any other identifying features in the pictures. The contest photo should be as anonymous as possible in order to avoid any appearance of outside influence.

3. One of your photos should include (in the shot) a piece of paper with the following info:
a. The contest name: Aeroscale Model of the Month
b. Your full name
c. Date the photo was taken

4. Submit from 5-10 photos of your entry to jessica(dot)cooper(at)aeroscale(dot)co(dot)uk

5.Photos should be a minimum of 800x600 and shot against a plain background.

6. Include the following information in the email:
a. Your full name
b. Your shipping address (for prize fulfillment)
c. Your KitMaker username
d. The title/name of your model
e. Your preferred contest entry photo.
If you do not indicate an entry, Jessica will choose one which may not be your favourite.

7.The rest of your supporting pictures can show the model as the modeller intends with figures and a base, and even some of the construction should you wish as the remaining images will be used to publish your winning entry on the homepage after the contest has concluded. In addition to the winning entries, we may select additional photos for publishing at a future date in a feature.

Not sure if we are supposed to announce or just do the model and submit. But oh well, I'll announce, lol. I will be submitting a Guillian's Sopwith Camel balsa model (I hope balsa is ok. I did not see anything in the rules about material, just that it had to be a model.) Thanks. Do I need to post build pictures?

Only the finished model needs to be submitted for the contest. Should you wish to send pics of the build, I'll accept them for a possible feature article. Also feel free to post them in your build log you've got going. That's what build logs are for We see very few balsa models here on Aeroscale, so this one will be interesting

We have an incentive! Our sponsor has announced this month's prize. Our winner will be enjoying a hassle-free build of Tamiya's Spitfire I! And don't forget to look at the review to see what you're getting into. Now who wants to win that?
