    Hi Folks,
    with just two more building days to go, I have just posted some more fine examples of peoples work.
    These offerings include kits manufactured by Flymodel, Wilmeshaven, Digital Navy and one entry designed from scratch.
    Take a peek and cast your votes for your favourites.
    There is still time to get your entry in.

    TTFN,


    Marcus

    Well I have been a busy bunny in the last twelve hours!
    Five more entries have just been posted, including some old favourites from Zio and Trotisky.
    You still have 40 hours of building time left folks.
    TTFN,

    Marcus

    Hi Folks,
    The field for entries to our competition has now closed.
    The panel of judges will retire and consider their choices.
    I will post a winners board on the Paperwarbirds site.
    I'd like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have made models for the competition. The job of judging will be a very difficult one.
    I hope you've all enjoyed the adventure as much as I have.
    TTFN,

    Marcus

    I thought the competition was open through May 31st? I started my F-14 Tomcat 2 days after your initial announcement and just finished last night. I worked literally day and night to get it done in time. Why are you closing early?

    My apologies for any palpatations caused!

    Silly Marcus! No No No!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I waited until this morning to take pictures of my models because I wanted good light, and just about had a heart attack when I visited your website to submit my entries. They are on the way!

    Thanks.

    You can find another excellent build of the same plane by Vjatchy at the old CardModels site: http://www.cardmodels.org/mega/photos/show-album.asp?albumid=11&currentpos=5. Vjatchy opened up the vents around the intakes and did a better job on the wings. His stuff always inspires me to do better.

    I actually finished the Harrier back in March. It was the Halinski Tomcat that had me working day and night to meet the deadline. That thing was hard.

    Hi Folks!
    I'm just going to say Hi and then I'll lurk for a while while judging goes on.
    Thanks to everybody who entered and helped make the competition more successful than I had ever anticipated. Obviously I can't comment on any individual entry until all the judging has been done and prize winners have been notified. So I'll sign off for a while and watch from cyberspace.

    TTFN,

    Marcus

    Marcus! To quote Tinky Winky:

    "Again! Again! Again!"

    Maybe I'll finish something next time!

    Well Tim, You'd better get started!
    The first round of judging is done, and we have sorted out our short lists. Gosh it's no easy task, and I am especially grateful to NOBI, Raimund, Cliff and Chip for lending a hand with the competition. Great teamwork guys, much appreciated.
    Once the final round of judging is concluded over a virtual beer, and I have notified winners and despatched prizes, I'll post the resolts on WOH.

    There are some more online events planned for the summer and a few new features too. Oh and a couple of new releases.
    Now where did I put that UHU?

    Hi Folks!

    After a period of withdrawl, I can now announce that the final adjudication
    for entries to the $1000, more like $2000, prize giveaway, has taken place. :p
    The Grand Prize winner was the easy part, being voted for unanimously by the panel. :D
    The subsequent prizes took much more thought, :? and has taken longer than anticipated to agree and adjudicate as fairly as possible. The judges' decisions are now final.

    Prize winners should receive their prizes within the next 28 days.

    For full details, please visit our home page and follow the links to our Hall of Honour. http://www.paperwarbirds.com

    I hope that you have all enjoyed the competition as much as I have.

    Lastly, my sincere thanks to my team of fellow card model makers who have taken on the mantle of judges, and special thanks to entrants and visitors for making this great experiment a grand success.
    I have invited the Grand Prize Winner to act as a Judge in next years competition. Hopefully some tradition can be started here!

    TTFN,

    Marcus

    P.S.

    Same time, same place, next year.

    P.P.S watch out for new features on the WOH website as we experiment with php and the possibility for "group builds!" , integrated shopping cart, and a "mini forum".
