Response to I won't play, but
I understand what you are saying, but the model doesn't have to be all that involved. My hope is that some clever interpretation may be used. As I wrote to Jakub, a single figure pulling on a parachute would fulfil the requirements. I don't want to pre-empt anyones ideas, but have a look through any D-Day related books and you'll find a good third is devoted to preparation and build-up.
Nine weeks may seem prescriptive, but something simple and small which is well executed and imaginative should beat a bigger model that is straight out of the box.
That said, if anyone wanted to recreate Poole harbour packed with landing craft, that would be eligible too - we'd just suspect you had some help.
If it works out, I'd look to do more competitions in the future with different themes and varying amounts of time to build.
All the best
Please note that there is no stipulation to use my Modelworks kits. Someone asked in an e-mail.
