This award signifies that this person has completed the Vac and Resin campaign.

Operational Overview
For the most part, building vac and resin kits is seen as a dark art, practised 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 moulded subjects would be permitted as long as the conversion is major; i.e. replacing 50% or more of the base kit.

The Rules and Regs
The Rules and Regs
1. Your model must be a vacuform or resin kit of any aircraft. 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. Any scale, any era, any subject, any Nationality. "What if" schemes are permitted;
3. Aftermarket parts, conversions and AMS permitted;
4. The kit decals (if supplied) or aftermarket markings are allowed. “What if” markings may also be used;
5. Build as many kits as you wish, but only 1 ribbon will be awarded per person;
6. Minimum of 2 progress shots in the official campaign thread plus minimum of one shot of the completed build in the campaign gallery;
7. The finished shots for the gallery must 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 : );
8. Dioramas welcome but not required;
9. Entries cannot be used for more than 1 campaign.
10. Most importantly have fun, enjoy your build, and share your progress with us all.

Contest Element
There will be a beautiful shiny ribbon for those who finish their builds within the time frame of the Campaign.
