IPMS (UK) has the great pleasure in announcing not one but two new armour trophies will be on offer at Scale ModelWorld in 2014.
Sponsored by Inside the Armour, the well-known producer and distributor of aftermarket products in the UK, this is great news for military vehicle modellers as it broadens the opportunity to compete for this category of models at Scale ModelWorld.
Chris Meddings, owner of Inside The Armour, has long been a successful competitor at Scale ModelWorld and after a number of discussions with Tony Horton, IPMS (UK) Competition Secretary, has offered to support and promote the Category in a more concrete form. There are only a couple of existing trophies for this category, so Chris’ generous offer is doubly welcome, especially as AFV modelling has become more and more popular in recent years.
Chris assures us that the winner of either of these trophies will get a significant award. IPMS (UK) would like to encourage any armour-building member of IPMS (UK), or indeed any IPMS member from around the World to compete for the trophies and make them the successful awards that they deserve to be. Good luck to all who enter.
The new Trophies are:
I.1. INSIDE THE ARMOUR PRODUCTS AWARD.
Awarded for best model using an Inside the Armour Products of any kind.
Military Vehicles, any scale, any IPMS category; modellers must show at least one
picture of the unpainted model, and identify the Inside the Armour Products on their Competition card.
I.2. INSIDE THE ARMOUR BEST MILITARY SCRATCH BUILT AWARD.
Awarded for the Best Military vehicle, scratch build or homemade conversion;
The best use of scratch building techniques (not commercially available parts) in a military vehicle subject. Any scale.
