Modelzona 2016 Categories

Please be aware that some of the categories have changed.
These are categories that have had low turnout the past few years,
so we have decided to combine a few of them.

The Head Judge reserves the right to split categories that have large numbers of entries.

The Craig Hewitt Chapter appreciates the support of the following trophy sponsors.
Visit their websites and support the folks who support us.
