IPMS Conversion Categories - question

Recommended Posts

I have a contest question regarding the IPMS NAT Contest Categories.

I’ve read the rules  and am not sure where the following model would/should go:

The Fisher AD Skyraider conversion of the Trumpeter kit. While a conversion, the rules say such ‘commercial conversions’ are at a disadvantage to conversions accomplished by scratch building and really not recommended to be enteted in the conversion category. The only other category would be as suggested: stratchbuilt & conversion but the same applies. So my question: is there a contest category for such a conversion that it can compete fairly on the quality of the work done or not entering, as it will be playing second fiddle to scratch conversions.

Peter, all I know is that in Omaha the aircraft Best of Show was a 1/48th scale Privateer conversion done with Cutting Edge resin. I wouldn't even imagine they would get to the type of conversion it was until they got past all the "basics"

It can be entered in the regular 1/32 prop class. Nothing’s stopping you from doing that. It’s what I intend with my Guppy conversion and Israeli Bf-109. 

What are you bringing forty models or something?

65, but who’s counting. 

Seriously, next year will be P-51B for sure and Kingfisher as well if time allows. 

2020 will be either RCAF Canso or USN Catalina. 

And that 1/48 scale PB4J-2 was a truly flawless  and stunning build  

 

build.
