    Hi Folks,

    i was looking everywhere here to find a place to post about competitions on the net about our hobby. I could't find anywhere that fit :shock: .. I'm pretty sure that I won't be the only one setting up competitions for card aero-modellers, so maybe this should be the place for it. :D

    Hi Folks,
    I received two more entries this morning, a fine example of a GPM kit and another of Marek's masterpieces.
    They can be seen in the competition Gallery. Please visit and cast your vote. The overall quality of submissions is stunning.
    If you are snipping away to get an entry in by June 1st closing date, great. If you haven't started yet, get snippin'.
    Pics of all manner of flying machines are welcome, including airships, blimps, baloons and gliders.
    I hope to get some more entries in from our younger hobbiests too. So time for some Dads & Lads, or Mums & Lasses projects please.


    TTFN,

    Marcus

    Hi Folks,
    With 10 days to go until the deadline, I have just posted some more pics of modelmakers creations on the paperwarbirds site.
    The lates additions bring the number of entries to 30.
    If we can get 50 online then there is a high liklihood that I'll run the competition again next year. So folks, you've got ten more days to email your entry to sales@paperwarbirds.com and two weekends for Dad 'n' Lad or Mum 'n' Lass projects.

    TTFN,

    Marcus
