Minnesota Nordicon (UPDATE)

Get your models ready, the folks from the Twin City Aero Historians will bring this event on Saturday, September 21, 2013 with model builders coming from various states around Minnesota. There’s a electronic form to enter your models here. This year the main theme will be NEED FOR SPEED.


The military vehicles categories will be judged by the Minnesota Military Figure Society (MMFS) using the AMPS “Open Judging” style, which rates the model in relation to the ability of the modeler, rather than against the work of other modelers. It looks at what the modeler started with, what he finished with and what he did to get there.

Each model is judged by a team of judges, with the lowest score eliminated. This system both judges the model and honors the modeler for his artistic achievement and historical accuracy. The figure categories will be judged by the Military Military Figure Society (MMFS) using “Chicago” figure judging style.

The remaining categories will be judged using IPMS style judging.
