JUDGING

Entries will be judged using the following criteria: Basic Construction, Overall Finish, Overall Accuracy, Additional Detailing and Degree of Difficulty. Scratch built detail will be favored over commercially available detail if quality is comparable. A great amount of added detail will not make up for poor basic construction. A copy of the IPMS/USA Judges Handbook will be available for review.
