Entry Rules for the MRC/Italeri Black Friday 2013 Contest

MRC Italeri


Thanks to MRC and Italeri, we're holding our first global contest! The rules are simple:

  1. Submit three photos of your best built Italeri model between now and Friday, November 29th (Black Friday here in the US). To paraphrase a classic: "Three shall be the number of photos and the number of photos shall be three..."
  2. The model can be any Italeri kit: aircraft, ship, armor, AFV, car, etc.
  3. At least one photo will show the entire model, the others can also be overviews at different angles or close-ups of your handywork. Of course your photos need to be good as we'll be judging your model based on them.
  4. All three photos must each be between 1600 and 1800 pixels wide. Do not add watermarks or copyright information on your images. Submitting photos for entry into this contest constitutes permission for Cybermodeler Online and the contest sponsors to reprint these photos.
  5. The models can be built straight out of the box or loaded with aftermarket details, scratchbuilding, etc.
  6. Please provide your name, postal address (in case you win), the Italeri kit number, subject and scale, and a brief (1-2 sentence) description of what you did to the model (out-of-the-box or how enhanced).
  7. Each entry must be submitted by separate email to
  8. Please include your photos with your entry - do not send links to download sites like Photobucket for your images, these entries will be disqualified.
  9. You may enter as many Italeri builds as you wish, but only one prize will be awarded per person.
  10. All entries must be received by noon (1200) EST on 29 November 2013.

The best models will be selected based upon the overall model. The prizes for this contest:

  • The best six models will each receive a new 1/72 Italeri F-35A Lightning II kit
  • The next best 12 models will each receive an Italeri paint set

All entry photos will be posted in a virtual contest room for all to view. Judging will begin after 1200 EST on 29 November and you can vote for your top five favorites. Your points will be added to our own judges' evaluations and the results will be posted in our Monday evening (1 Dec) edition.

All 18 prizes will be awarded, three F-35s and six paint sets will be shipped within the US by MRC, the other three F-35s and six paint sets will be shipped directly from Italeri anywhere else in the world.

Good luck!
