Free Model Contest #6

I wanted to start out the New Year by hosting another contest to feature some of the great free models out there.

So, here are the rules

1) Contest will run from now until June 30, 2021 23:59:59 PST.

2) Post a thread "build report" with pictures (if possible) while you are building the model. Add "Free Model #6" to the thread title to feature contest threads. Example: Free Model #6 – Cannon Jaguar E-Type. Add valid link somewhere in the thread so others may download model also. Please take picture(s) of finished model and post in thread.

3) Model must be available freely on the internet with a valid link. Model must be a legitimate download. Piracy is not acceptable in this forum. Model must exist as a complete download at the beginning of this contest. Sorry, no designing as you go.

All modifications are allowed. Recoloring, additional parts & extra detailing are all acceptable.

Entrants may enter as many times as you want.

Entries will be judged by forum members. Judging will remain open for 2 weeks after the end of contest so members may cast votes.

1st Place GPM Mark VIII Liberty with laser frames and tracks 1:25
2nd Place Orlik F-11 Tiger with laser frames and canopy 1:33
3rd Place GPM 122mm Haubica Wz.38 with laser frames 1:25
4th Place Oriel GAZ 3102 with chrome plated parts 1:25
5th Place GPM DFS Olympia 1:33

Contest host retains the right to modify contest rules and prizes at any time.

Feel free to PM me with questions and clarifications of rules.

Thank you in advance for your participation and let building begin!

Here are just a few websites with free models:
Cannon
Currell
E-Card Models
Land Ships II
Minimodel
Murph’s Models
Model Art
Paper Inside
Paper Replika
Paper Shipwright
SF Papercraft

If any of these sites offer paid models, please consider purchasing from them.

Very nice little Norwegian fishing boat! Your photos of the build process are a big plus as well. The website also has a free download of the Norwegian ancestors Viking ship.

After some thinking, I decided I will enter this contest with an unusual (for me) subject.
This will be my entry:
Toddlea's Free model contest #6 - Menzi Muck A81 excavator (1:25)
