Anyone else get this?
Posted by Real G on Friday, November 4, 2022 6:30 PM

This came to me via IPMS:

https://finescalecontests.secondstreetapp.com/BAMM-Photo-Contest/rounds/1/aircraftrealspace

I find it strange no one is talking about it.  Is it legit?  I can't play because I build too slow, but others can.

I didnt get a notification but I haven't been an IPMS member for quite some time.  The link loads fine for me.   
im curious, do you have to build the model in November or can you submit any model during November?

Thanks,

John

I got the same email from FSM and a similar one from the IPMS.  I've never heard about this before these emails arrived.  Not sure what to think about it or if I'm going to try to enter it.

Thankfully I'm too poky to even try.  Hope it's something legit.

It's also mentioned on the CultTVMan site:

https://culttvman.com/main/november-is-build-a-model-month/

Scroll down to the final paragraph. It's legit.

I find that pretty strange too, since Tim is mentioned on that link and he hasn't posted anything about it here, in spite of having posted here about other things in the last couple of days.

A random link found in another random link doesn't necessarily make something legitimate.  Phishing e-mails are well-known for using that exact tactic to get personal info from people.  I'd wait until we get confirmation from Tim before making any decisions on this just yet.

If its just posting 5 photos of a completed model, which it appears to be since it says submissions can be made from 11-1 to 11-30, I'd be up for it.  But, if we're supposed to build a model in less than a month (its 11-4 already, and the contest started 3 days ago with no announcement here), there's no way I'd be able to do that.  Like RealG, I build too slow.  My F-4B project just hit the one year mark today...and its still not done.  LOL

Just found this in the rotating banners on the FSM home page, from the FSM link at the upper left of this forum.  Looks like it was a big announcement almost 2 months ago...that never really got announced.  A little ironic in light of its stated goal of making more people aware of plastic modelling.  LOL

That's Odd!

      I got the full page with the explanations, regs and the prize list. In other words the whole thing. It's legit as to what has been said more than once in the Mag!

I got the notice, but like TB I build too slow.  Both of the kits I am working on are longer term efforts and I don't want to break away to start a new kit.
