Welcome to October's Model of the Month contest!


The October Dragon Model of the Month contest is open for entries.

Please also take a moment to read through the updated rules, regarding bases, structures and figures. We plan to be a lot more strict this year, regarding the entries and hopefully will not have to disappoint members as they will follow the new rules.
Please submit your entries to jessica(dot)cooper(at)aeroscale(dot)co(dot)uk

All models finished during the month of October are elligible.

the rules
Submissions follow the new 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.

2. The photos should be of a single aicrcraft-related model against a plain background (white or Blue preferred, but other neutral colours are acceptable) 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 fulfilment)
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.

Our entrant chose to withdraw from this month's contest, leaving the field wide open.

we've received another entry. All we need is one more to keep the contest from being postponed.

With only two entries, this month's contest is likely to be rolled over into November.

At the last possible moment, a couple models have been entered to keep the contest alive!

Jessica, Have you and the other Admins ever given any thought to changing the model of the month, which doesn't seem to get many entries to lets say a quarterly contest instead? One thing that has bothered me about the MOM contest is that the present format is just a single picture with no credence given to detailing, model corrections, etc. Perhaps a change in format which up to lets say 6 pictures of the entry is posted along with a limited paragraph or two describing the build. This way everyone can vote on what the model represents more then just a single picture which doesn't really tell the whole story. It shouldn't be taken for granted that the viewers have followed the build blog, if there was even one. Joel

Jess, I just voted in the Oct. Model of the Month. I had the same issue as with the previous months. And if I'm having them, I'm fairly confident others do too. And that's trying to get an overall view of the entire model from a single picture. My previous post would also help to resolve this issue as well. Joel
