After the smashing success of November’s giveaway, I just can’t wait another 11 months to host a second. So here we go!
Now…this giveaway will be smaller and less epic than the annual giveaway…and drawing straight from my stash. Why? Because I’ve run out of storage space, I have too many models I want to build, and rather than leaving ones I won’t get to for some time to sit on shelves unattended, I figured why not set them free to, um, sit on someone else’s shelves unattended?
First up…copies of the two Jugs I’m building at this very moment!
1/48 Tamiya P-47D Razorback – This kit is a beauty in just about every way. As I work through my second Tamiya Jug I’m more convinced than ever that this is one of the best 1/48 kits in existence. Period.
1/48 Monogram P-47D Razorback – One of the best of Monogram’s venerable old molds. I’ll be honest, it doesn’t hold a candle to the Tamiya kit, but it’s simple, solid, and goes together well. In the hand of someone not afraid to get their hands dirty and cut styrene, it could be turned into quite the stunner.
How’s This Going to Work?
Here’s the deal. The giveaway is live the moment this post goes up. It will run through January 31st, and on February 1st I will plug the entrants into a random picker to determine the winners.
To enter, I want to change things up a bit. As a kid, the models were all about the machine. Now that I’m a bit older, I find myself drawn more and more to the men who flew them and kept them in the air. The humanity and the story behind the aircraft are a passion all their own…so to enter this giveaway:
1 – Leave a comment naming your favorite P-47 pilot, and why.
2 – Be sure to enter a valid e-mail where I can contact you, if you win.
And…that’s that! Let the fun begin, and best of luck to all who enter!
