Show your models and win free models every month!
4th year with you and your models!

Every month we give free models to best model in Misc contest (airplanes,
military vehicles, figures, ships, motorcycles...) and Cars contest.

You only need to send your model for contest.

WHAT CAN COMPETE?

Any kind of scale model without exceptions is welcome.

MODELS AND CATEGORIES!

We have 2 categories. One is Misc category and there goes airplanes,
military vehicles, ships, figures, SF, motorcycles. Another one is Cars
category and there goes cars only. In that category we have Theme contest.
Before entering in that category check what is theme for current month.
Monthly roster is on the bottom of this page.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY PICTURE(S)?

You can E-mail them to me as file attachments. This is by far the easiest
way. You can use the body of the E-mail to describe the model. The
description can be as long or short as you like. The choice is yours. And
finally, please remember to write both your first and last name in the
e-mail. If you have photos of web pages, just tell me where is it and I will

PICTURE SUBMITTING DEADLINE.

Your pictures have to in by midnight GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) on the 20th
of the current month. Pictures submitted after this date will be transferred
to next months contest.

HOW MANY MODELS AND PICTURES CAN I SUBMIT?
AND HOW ABOUT FILETYPE AND SIZE?

You can submit ONLY ONE  model, with a maximum of 3 pictures of each model.
All non JPEG pictures will be converted to this format. I do this in order
to be able to control the size of the picture-file. Ill try to keep the
size below 100 Kilobytes in order to get a fast loading page. Finally, also
please try to keep the width of the picture at max. 700 pixels. If that's
not possible, I can re-size it for you; in this event I'll set up a link to
the full sized picture, below the edited version of the picture.

VOTING:

Voting starts on the 21st and ends on the last day of the following month,
in both cases at midnight GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
You may vote* for 1 model. The model which gets the highest number of these,
will become the "Model Of The Month". PLEASE NOTE!!! You may only vote for 1
model ! Because we have two different categories (cars and miscellaneous)
you can give one vote in EACH category.

I have decided to judge the contest with a judging board who will decide the
winner of this and all future contests - "WINNER OF CONTEST". If I have
award, will award a second prize to the individual who has the most votes
from emails "WINNER OF CONTEST BY PEOPLE CHOICES" . I find that I must make
these changes to insure a fair contests.

No voting entry will be accepted unless your full name is given. You must
provide your full first and last name in mail when voting. It has been our
experience that some people use few different e-mail addresses i.e. (from
all their family, friends, company, ...) to vote for themselves. FRIENDS ARE
WELCOME, BUT NOT VOTING FOR YOURSELF MORE THAN ONCE FROM DIFFERENT E-MAIL
ADDRESSES. I will check any suspicious e-mail addresses. We all want fair
voting. If you have any suggestions, please send them to me. Please don't go
around and collect people to vote for you. I think that this is unfair and
if I see or heard that somebody do that I will eject him from contest. You
can tell people that your model is in contest, but not collecting votes for
yourself.

Each model will be put on its own page. The headline of the page will
contain a number. The voting is done by an automated e-mail system. When you
click the vote button, I'll receive an e-mail containing the number of the
model. If you have to vote via regular/manual e-mail (AOL, Web-Tv and
various "free e-mail" users like HotMail etc.), then please remember to
write which model(s) you're voting for.

*Everybody may vote, including the participators in the contest.
