Modeler's Guide To IPMS Contests

This Guide is designed for the use of modelers everywhere, competitors and non-competitors alike.

For competitors, it outlines the basic principles that guide IPMS model contests.

For judges, it outlines the standards and objectives that make for fair, effective, and efficient competitions.

For all modelers, it is a single best reference on how to look at models objectively: to know what to look for, to know what others are looking for, and to learn how to set personal standards of satisfaction and accomplishment.

The guide is available in two versions:

  • An HTML file, updated February 2013.
  • The PDF version, updated February 2013.
