I still haven't seen the contest results, or gotten the issue. No idea if any of my 15 entries made it. :lol:

I was very happy to see my 1/350 TOS Enterprise build as one of the winners in the FSM Trek contest! Very Humbled indeed!!In the March(current)Issue!




Wow, congratulations! Very sweet, indeed, and a great honor! Mark, how about some pics of her as you have her displayed at home. I'm always interested in how folks display their best models.

Don't think so John. I don't remember seeing your name on any of the entries (mine neither... :frown2:).

Sorry Lads, neither of you boys were represented in the issue. Unfortunate as in my Humble opinion you fellows should have been!

Congrats!

Back in the day they kind of sneered at SF stuff. It wasn't 'real modeling', like tanks and planes. I was kind of amazed I sold an article to them on the BOP.
Now they have a ST contest.
This is a common misconception. FSM has always had some measure of SF content, including cover stories. In the early '90's, Barry and Shiela Alder started a club up here in Ottawa called SFMBA, the Science Fiction Model Builders' Association, and one of our early members was Bob Hayden, the Editor in Chief of FSM, who was a major SF fan. In point of fact he wanted to increase the amount of SF content, but the accountants pointed out that when they had an SF-heavy issue, which they sometimes had, sales did not do as well as an armour or aircraft issue. Money does influence such things, after all - it IS a business.

I'm happy to announce that not only will I have an image in the 2018 Star Trek Ships of the Line Calendar, due out this August, (of my 1/350 TOS award winning Enterprise) but I just recently had a new piece, Again with Jeff Summers doing the composite work, accepted for the 2019 Calendar as well. This time of my 1/350 Refit Enterprise! I can't thank Doug Drexler enough for reaching out to me and wanting to include my 1/350 Tos build in his Calendar! I am sincerely humbled to be a small part of the Star Trek family!
