Airfield Models ( Design and Build Contest

This contest was announced on June 18, 2006.  The deadline for entries was June 30, 2007.  Judging was completed on July 31, 2007.

Twenty people signed up to participate throughout the period the contest was active.  Five complete entries were submitted.

This was the first contest I sponsored so I had no idea how it would turn out.  I expected that several people would drop out and several did.  At one point it looked like there was only going to be one entrant to complete the contest.

Then in the last week before the deadline several submissions came in.  This year the number of complete submissions equals the number of prizes so everyone is a winner and no prize is left behind.

If you are registered with the site you may also post your comments about the models.  On this page you can post general comments about the contest.  You can post comments specific to any of the models below on those pages.
