We figure everyone must have something that went incomplete or back in the stack that was meant to be built for a theme contest. Finish up something you’ve already started. Build the model you really wanted to get done. Execute that idea that you got too late to get done. You probably already have something started in the stack, so this should be a breeze!

Have you gotten all your theme entries done or too new to the BPMS to have incomplete entries? You may have a look at the list and build something that will fall within those criteria for that contest, but please only build models that would’ve been available at that time. (eg, please don’t build the Battlestar Pegasus model for a Sloppy Second of the 1997 Sci-Fi Theme.)

Easy enough and you should already have plenty to build. We ENCOURAGE you to finish off something you started previously for a theme contest rather than buying something new. Now you have an excuse to get it done! Feel free to contact Jimmy or Bobby (or any of the officers) with any questions.

We will also have special awards, for example: for the oldest BPMS theme entry finally completed and the model that could qualify for the most theme contests!
