The Kittyhawk Cup

The history of the Kittyhawk Cup.

The Kittyhawk Cup originated from the early 2000's when the Australian War Memorial asked the Society if we could build a batch of Kittyhawk models for the Memorial Education staff. We had such a great time working on the same model that we enshrined the idea in this annual competition, which has subsequently been expanded to include armoured subjects in The Sentinel Shield, occasional Maritime subjects in The Maritime Medal and the relatively new The Grail – a catchall category for less frequently subscribed modelling subjects.
