Better Modeling Through IPMS Judges' Eyes

The WFSM June 2015 Monthly Meeting featured topic was Better Modeling Through IPMS Judges' Eyes.  Whether starting out in the hobby or an old hand at it, most modelers always want to improve their skills in the hobby while still enjoying the fun and challenge of it.  As in many other areas of life, competition can be fun and also help modelers improve their skills.  While there are a host of competition and judging formats, the one focused upon in June was the IPMS/USA approach -- especially timely with the IPMS/USA National Convention in Columbus, OH, July 22-25, 2015.

The crux of the presentation was lifted from the IPMS/USA - Modeler's Guide To IPMS Contests.   Please feel free to use this valuable resource to help identify areas for improvement and also provide a solid checklist to use during your upcoming builds.  Remember, you don't have to fix everything at once.  Pick an area or two, improve (master, if possible), and move on to a couple of others.  Before you know it, your modeling will be at a noticably higher level.
