Thanks to your feedback about our first two global model contests, you'll be happy to know that we've decided to continue these on a regular basis and already have at least three more on the schedule for the coming months. The next global contest is sponsored by Kinetic Models and Lucky Model, and the prizes are quite nice:

  • 1st Place: Kinetic K3204 1/32 F/A-18C/D Hornet kit (one award)

In all, there are thirteen prizes being awarded in this cycle. The rules are simple:

  1. Submit three photos of your best Kinetic model between now and Friday, January 31st.
  2. The model can be any Kinetic kit: aircraft, armor, AFV.
  3. At least one photo will show the entire model, the others can also be overviews at different angles or close-ups of your handiwork. Of course your photos need to be good as we'll be judging your model based on them.
