Best Canadian Subject Criteria
(Celebrating 60 years of IPMS Canada)
  • The entry must be identifiably and distinctly Canadian in its markings and function or usage.
  • Canadian Armed Forces, Royal Canadian Air Force, Royal Canadian Navy, Canadian Army, and Canadian Coast Guard subjects would obviously qualify.
  • Additional examples of Canadian content would be:
    • An RCMP police car.
    • An Airbus A320 in Air Canada markings.
    • A figure of Canadian fighter pilot Buzz Beurling.
    • A model of the schooner Bluenose.
    • A Canadian Churchill tank at Dieppe.
  • Examples that would NOT qualify:
    • A plain-painted vehicle sporting provincial plates.
    • A Space Shuttle with the Canadarm.
    • A Ram tank used by the Dutch Army.
    • A Belgian CF-100.
    • A Canadian-built Royal Navy Corvette.
Best Scratchbuilt or Conversion Criteria

CRITERIA: Any entry either by itself, as the main focus in a diorama, or as a collection (Rules Section 2.5) that can be considered a scratchbuilt or conversion (Rules Section 2.4 below).

Event Rules for Best Scratchbuilt or Conversion:

Rule 2.4 SCRATCHBUILT models may incorporate parts from other kits, but those should generally be unrelated to their original identity, except for minor parts such as wheels, guns, etc. CONVERSION models must contain significant structural changes to the basic kit involving extensive changes in contour and configuration. As a rule of thumb, use of commercially available conversion parts; (for example, aircraft noses, resin cast turrets, or resin cast car bodies) does not call for the level of effort needed to qualify for the conversion award.

Rule Britannia! Criteria
(Best British Subject, celebrating 61 years of IPMS/UK, the founders of IPMS worldwide)
  • The entry must be identifiably and distinctly British in its design, manufacture and markings.
  • Royal Armed Forces subjects (Royal Army, Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Royal Air Force, etc.), past or present, would obviously qualify, subject to the above criterion.
  • Models of readily identifiable British television or movie show vehicles, (e.g. Thunderbirds, Thomas the Tank Engine, etc.) or British fictional personalities (e.g. James Bond, Wallace & Gromit). This will not include enemies or villains (e.g. a Dalek from Dr. Who).
  • British designed and manufactured civilian vehicles such as cars, truck, trains, aircraft, ships etc.
  • Additional examples of British eligibility would be:
    • A figure of any famous personality; Royalty/Politics etc. e.g. Queen Elizabeth, Winston Churchill, etc.
    • British designed and manufactured artillery, which usually carry no markings (e.g. 25 pdr.).
    • A figure of a soldier in British uniform and displaying appropriate insignia.
  • Examples that would NOT qualify:
    • An American automobile sporting UK plates.
    • A British Centurion tank used by the Australian Army or a Spitfire in USAAF service.
    • A Sherman tank with British unit markings.
    • A WWI battle scene featuring a Union Jack flag carried by a soldier.
    • A bulldog.
    • A generic figure sporting a kilt, bowler hat or sporting a Union Jack tattoo.
