What is the Kittyhawk Cup?
The Kittyhawk Cup is a special Scale ACT judging category where all entrants must build a particular aircraft model, strictly to "Out of the Box" rules.
Kittyhawk Cup rules are very simple;
the model must be constructed strictly to ACTSMS 'Out of the Box' rules. No materials not found in the box may be used. No aftermarket parts etc. No cross-kitting (transferring parts between boxings) permitted. The exception is decals (see below)
The one exception to normal “Out of the Box” rules is that 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!
