Operational Overview
Per a Jesse (quote) “For the most part, building vac and resin kits is seen as a lost art, practiced by only a select few who have mastered their mysteries. I think that's unfair so I propose a build which will challenge people to step up and tackle a kit which will stretch their skills. Any kit, any subject, any scale whose primary construction relies on vacuform, resin or a combination. Conversion kits for injection molded subjects would be permitted if the conversion is major; i.e. replacing 50% or more of the base kit.” (quote)

The Rules and Regs
1. The model must be a vacuform or resin kit of any aircraft or armor. Major conversions (replacing more than 50%) of injection kits are permissible. Multimedia kits where the major parts are vac and/or resin are encouraged.
2. Models must be no more that 25% started at beginning of campaign and you must post at least one photo of where your kit is at the start of the campaign in the campaign thread."
3. Any scale, any era, any subject, any Nationality. "What if" schemes are permitted;
4. Aftermarket parts, conversions and AMS permitted;
5. The kit decals (if supplied) or aftermarket markings are allowed. “What if” markings may also be used;
6. Build as many kits as you wish, but only 1 ribbon will be awarded per person;
7. There should be a lead in photo of the kit along with the date of some sort with a minimum of 2 progress shots in the official campaign thread plus minimum of one shot of the completed build in the campaign gallery;
8. The finished shots for the gallery should be taken against a plain background. They will be used in a feature article so the background should not distract from your model. Show off your work, not your cluttered workbench:) Merlin, is thinking of a feature to post.
9. Dioramas welcome but not required;
10. Entries cannot be used for more than 1 campaign.
11. Most importantly have fun, enjoy your build, and share your progress with us all.
