Welcome to The Golden Sprue Awards. For the first time the scale modelling community has opportunity to nominate and vote online for their favourite new kit releases of 2020 along with those products that help transform those kits into masterpieces. This is a community project, built by scale modellers aimed at scale model enthusiasts all over the world. This is your opportunity to recognise and applaud those companies who this year have stepped up to the mark in releasing the best kits in our hobby.  Has it been a kit or subject matter that you have always been waiting for, have you been following it since it was announced, or are they your favourite manufacturer and this year they have again excelled with a great new kit release.
Nominations have been submitted by thousands of scale modellers across the world for their of the best new kits of the year. These nominations have now been shortlisted and during October it is over to you to have the final say. With nine categories to vote in, a final "Best New Kit 2020" overall will be awarded to the kit that goes on to receive the most votes across all the categories.
Voting will take place during October and the winners will be announced on the site in November. There is no membership requirement or fee to either nominate or vote in the awards.  We have partnered with the On The Bench Podcast and Dave and the guys will be hosting a series of Podcasts during the event discussing the nominations in each category with a finale Podcast to announce the winners.
