2nd Annual LSM Christmas raffle and winners list

Ho Ho Ho Ho...

Ok, this time of year again, folks!

Our Christmas raffle went over well last year, except that one or two got missed with a gift.  I take that responsibility on myself, and I’ll ensure it does not happen again.

I’ll go over the rules and once again, attempt to keep it simple.   So here is rundown of rules so everyone is refreshed and aware.  For those who participated over there, you'll see a couple minor rule changes implemented by me just because I can. 

1.   Anyone who wants to enter to win may do so, IF, they are an Active Member of LSM as of right now. (November 17, 2019 1610 hrs CST)

2.   Active Member is defined as anyone who has contributed to LSM by posting two posts to LSM within the last calender year. I though of making it a WIP requirement, but decided exactly 10 seconds ago to nix that idea.  The whole idea here is to promote a feeling of Christmas Spirit and maybe get people posting more. So let’s make this fun!

3.   Enrolling:   Entering the raffle is easy. Just post  "I'm in" and I'll mark you down. You do not need to contribute a gift to win a gift.

4.   Gifts:   You're welcome to contribute a gift to be included in the raffle.  It’s absolutely not required or expected and you do NOT need to contribute a gift to be part of the raffle.

5.    Impropriety:    To avoid any sense of impropriety, I am going to ask that all people who feel led to contribute gifts to please verify your gifts as listed correctly.  Anything LSM related is good in my book.     Aircraft and AFVs, supplies, AM, tools, etc, are all OK.     I would suggest that if you're giving a bunch of little AM bibs and bobs, or things like magazine collections, think about including them as a package.   It makes my job easier when it comes to keeping track of who gave and won what.

6.    More Impropriety:  As the organizer and overseer of this operation, once again, I will NOT be eligible for any gift drawings.  

7.    Giving something is cool, but there is no right or wrong. Some give kits, others a resin set of wheels or #11 blades, or decide not to.   If you feel led to, then do, cool, if not, then there is no big deal. 

8.    But remember, if you offer a gift, you're responsible for the shipping charges to the winner.

9.     Gift givers and winners are to contact each other in a timely manner and winner must provide shipping information so the giver can get the package in the mail.

10.   This is a fun Christmas Raffle, guys.  If you pledge a gift, please make every effort to get it out in a timely fashion. 

11.    I will attempt to update the prize list and the names of those who entered the raffle on a daily basis.  If there's more entrants than gifts, not everyone will receive a gift.  If there's more gifts than entrants, then some will get more than one.  

12.   Drawing:  Christmas Day in the USA, because that's where I live, and I work the day before, so the Aussies and the Kiwis gotta wait an extra day. Sorry guys!


Pretty normal stuff, eh?  I think this oughta be a fun thing and I really hope everyone has a good time with this!

Ernie, please put me down for entry and I'll try to find something to contribute as well.

Coincidentally, I just started on the kit I won last year from you. 



Awesomeness, Carl. That’s a great kit, but believe it or not, I’ve never built it yet. I hear it’s a real sweet kit.

I've just started on it but I'm enjoying it so far.  It's going to be OOB which is what I really need at this moment. 

I tried to build a simple resin Zero kit but got bogged down trying to do chipping. So i switched to a Hasegawa Stuka but it has way too much AM that needs attention.

Hi Ernie

Please put me in again this year. I'll contribute a Trumpeter Bf109-G2 Tropical kit. Seems like a nice kit but it's not a subject I have any interest in. I know that's sacrilege to some but the 109 doesn't do it for me.

I'll also put in a set of Sky's Decals Israeli F4 decals which includes all the Kurnass 2000 airframes. These can be separate or combined as required for numbers purposes.

I'll play.

What is the criteria for selecting a kit to supply?

Steve, there is no criteria at all. It does not have to be a kit at all. You can give anything or nothing. You’re not judged. Some folks aren’t in a position to give and that’s ok. 

The only thing I ask is that if you are going to give, then make it LSM related. Armor or Air, but in our scales. Or books, AM, tools, whatever. It’s your choice.

you can enter without giving.

My contribution to this year's Saturnalia (really a European thing that has zero relevance to this southern Asiatic continent) so far are these.




I know the book may be out of date, but I read it. It may help someone else. 

There may be more. I am considering the Hasegawa Hellcat with loads of AM. (I Have the Airfix 1/24) but does anyone care? Nice model. A mix of raised and engraved detail... AM includes a cockpit, French markings.. it is actually kind of cool. I simply didn't expect Airfix...

Let me know.
