War Gaming / Model Maker Competition from BenchVent

BenchVent wants you to show off your workspace. If you do, you could win an Exagon R.

From the announcement:

Calling all war gamers, model makers and tabel top gamers - It’s competition time here at BenchVent and it’s your chance to win one of the newest additions to our product range; The Exagon R.

We launched the Exagon with model makers and hobbyists in mind. Manufactured in solid ABS plastic it comes complete with a carry handle making it ultra portable. The exagon completely removes the need for a face mask and it’s very quiet at around 58dB(A) with low power consumption meaning you won’t be racking up a huge electricity bill. It also comes with a lifetime guarantee!

How to Enter

Entry for the competition is simple, we want to see a photograph of your model making workshop! It doesn’t matter whether it’s a converted loft, a tiny corner in the spare room or an entire garden shed dedicated to locos and rolling stock we want you to share with us your model making environment.

You might have seen various blogs and websites publishing pictures of home office spaces, so we thought we would do something similar but give away a prize.

Rather than flash looking iMacs on glass desks and gadgets that cost a fortune but don’t get used we want to see paints, workshop tables, cutting mats, ventilation systems; basically the space you use to make scale models.

Ways to Enter

If you have a blog, post a picture on there and send us a link to it
Tweet us your picture
Email us a picture to
If you have a flickr account send us that
If you participate in a model making forum and can host pictures there then that’s fine too
As long as we get the picture somehow, it’ll be included as an entry!

How Will the Competition be Judged?

You might think because we’re experts in benchtop ventilation and extraction that we’ll be judging pictures from a health & safety standpoint but you’d be wrong!

We’ve decided that to keep the competition fair we’ll be picking a winner at random!. Once all the entries are in, we’re going to print them off, put them in a hat and pull out a winner at random.

Terms and Conditions are: 1 entry per person, must be your own photography, and by submitting your photo you give us permission to use it on our blog in a summary post of the competition as part of a gallery. Closing date is December 14th 2012 and we’ll be announcing the winner on Monday 17th December with the Exagon arriving just in time for Christmas!
