With the rather underwhelming July contest, we've rolled over both the entries and the sponsorship into the August contest. This means that there are already 2 entries this month. and we also have 2 prizes to compete for this month! How's that for incentive?

If you have comments or questions please post them here.

Thanks!

Hi Everyone!
One prize for this month is the hot-out-of-the-molds AMK Mig-31 BM/BSM Foxhound in 1/48 scale.



Here's a review of the kit:

This is a fantastic looking kit!

Best of Luck!

There are very few times I regret the rule which makes Aeroscale staff members exempt from winning the MOM contest, but I have to say that this is one of them. What a tasty prize!

Get building folks! Who's interested in winning that kit?

That's very funny because this is the prize for the delayed July contest. Now you can have both ends of the spectrum.

First and Second. August is your month, so you get the privilege of awarding First prize

Three worthy contenders indeed. Perhaps we'll have an all-Teutonic entry month?

Maybe ironic that they could get a Red Star as a prize!

And here I was racking my brain looking for planes with Greek warrior names. Still, great to see another entry.

When was the deadline for sending in entries again? End of the month? If that's the case, I just might make it if I make a mad rush painting and finishing my Ju 88.

Or then I'll just take my time and not rush too much as to not mess it up and enter it for September.
