What is the Kittyhawk Cup?
The Kittyhawk Cup is a special Scale ACT judging category where all entrants must build a particular aircraft kit, to our "Out of the Box" rules.
The rules are very simple;
the model must be constructed to the ACTSMS 'Out of the Box' rules, which are in brief;
No materials not found in the box may be used.
No aftermarket parts etc.
No cross-kitting (transferring parts between boxings) permitted.
The one exception to standard 'out of the box' rules pertains to finishing: Modellers may finish their models using aftermarket decals and/or paint schemes
Kittyhawk Cup entries will be judged as a stand-alone category, provided ACTSMS judging rules regarding number of category entries and entrants are met.
Oh, and why call this special aircraft competition the "Kittyhawk Cup? This comes from a project undertaken by ACTSMS members to build eight Academy 1/72 P-40E Kittyhawk models in RAAF markings for the Australian War Memorial in about 2005!
