Open Judging Award Recognition
In an attempt to further recognize good
modelers and encourage promising ones, WINGS &
WHEELS will use an “Open” system to judge
entries in the classes noted on the left.
Open System does not represent first, second,
or third place recognition; therefore the number
and level of awards will vary.
exhibit (one or more entries from a single
modeler) is judged on its own merit of
workmanship and modeling skill, not against
other exhibits in the class. Three Judges as a group
will decide which entry within the
exhibit is the best piece. Independently the
Judges score this single entry on a
scale of 0 to 4, for a combined maximum of 12.
Gold = 11-12 points
Silver = 8-10 points
