Hi Everyone,

    In August I'll be sponsoring a model building contest.  As the sponsor, I'll be supplying the winner with a model kit.  I've been looking around and reading, but still not sure what to get.  But I must order relatively soon to be certain I'm able to post the award once a winner has been selected.

 

Last August, I awarded the winner AMK's MiG-31.  It was a great choice.  Fantastic molding, fantastic detail, and something I actually wish I had ordered one for myself, as well.  Probably the most impressive bit of plastic I've ever seen in one box.

 

So, please, tell me the best new-ish kit you've had the chance to explore and or build.

 

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

 

Gaz

Glad you specified 'model wise' ... otherwise my new neighbour rates in the hot category ...

She popped out to get the mail from her mailbox in the shortest shorts I've seen in quite some time! Wow!... She's a stunner!

I doubt she fancy's being given away as a prize though ...   :hmmm:

 

Rog :)

A gift card to a hobby shop might be better.  Winner might have no interest in the subject you provide.

And yes, we need photos of this hot neighbor.

Thanks for asking. Preferably under 100 dollars.

Re: gift certificate. No gift certificates are awarded. Many people give from their stashes. My stash is small and mostly bought second hand. So I award a new kit only opened to ensure completeness.

Delightful contest that Aeroscale runs. I've won it a few times, even took the Model of the Year contest one year
