Model Aircraft Contest

Annual Model Contest

Our 2012 winner was John Haskell, who won all categories of the 2012 contest, taking home $350!

Our annual aircraft modeling contest is open to the first 50 applicants who submit an entry. These entries are displayed at the Miramar Air Show each year and voted on by passersby. *Because the air show was cancelled for 2013, we did not hold a model contest this year.

One fixed wing (airplane)

The models are to be built in Marine Corps markings: Pre-WW2. WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Shield/Storm.

All winning models are put on display for an entire year after selected
