48hr Birthday Bash25TH MARCH UNTIL THE 27TH MARCH 2022 (deze tekst is van Facebook gekopieerd van Models for Heroes)

The ‘ Model Officers Mess’ facebook group celebrate’s their 6th birthday with the birthday challenge.The challenge is to build any type of 1/48 scale model in a 48 hour period from start to finish. So come and join us in the challenge, with us in the back ground as support through out the build but make sure you donate.International entries – this year i want to try and encourage our members around the world to get involved and allowances is being made in the rules. So hopefully the world is truly open to get involved. All i would ask is that you make your timezone clear in your entry to save confusion.

Another reason to get involved and make a donation, we will randomly pick out a name from those that donate for some free give aways throughout the 48hrs live stream.


This year we will be running a ‘Just-Giving’ page for your donations. So why not donate the price of a Costa or Starbucks coffee to this great cause. Or if you wish maybe something little more.
