What's New on the Website?

Sweeps or No Sweeps!

You Decide!  Victory for Democracy!  Each person entering one or more models in Chile Con II will be given the opportunity to check a box on the entry form indicating a preference FOR sweeps (a single modeler may win more than one award in a single Category) or AGAINST sweeps (no modeler may be awarded more than one award in a single category).   A third option, indicating no preference, will also be available for those of you who Just Don't Care.

When registration is closed, the votes will be tallied, and the result will be posted for all to see.

In the event of a tie vote, the Head Judge will render a decision via arbitrary means (e.g., coin flip or some such).

 

Hangarside!

INTRODUCING: New for 2011 and for the first time ever at a Regional Contest, a brand new category:  "Hangarside."

For those modelers that have always wanted to apply that special paint scheme to your favorite model, but didn't want to deal with the hassle of detailing everything else.

This aircraft-specific category borrows from the Automotive modelers' idea of "Curbside" and it focuses on the paint scheme and craftsmanship involved with the "finish" of the model, not the detailing of it.

The Rules:

1.  Judges will not look within the cockpit to judge. T he canopy (and doors) must be left closed, and clear parts may or may not be painted black or blue inside.  However, everything else about the outside will be judged, including the lack of fingerprints, glue marks, scratches, etc.

The judges cannot pick up the model to judge anything they cannot see as the model sits on the table.  Landing gear will not be judged.  Judges may touch models to shift them around only.

3  There will be no judging of wheel wells, gun bays, up inside exhaust cans, down into intakes, or any other opening of the model.  The model may not have the engine cowlings, gun bays, ammo bays, avionics bays, or access panels opened up.  This is meant to be an incentive to build specifically for this category.

4  All of the other rules of basic modeling skills still apply to the exterior, with concurrent emphasis on the originality of the paint scheme chosen, the paint application, and any appropriate "weathering."

Note: A split may be made if there are enough entries, most likely a split by scale, at the discretion of the Head Judge.
