Below are judging notes and checklist for you to look over so that you are aware what the judges are looking for in the technically judged categories.

Judging Notes

Judges Checklist

References are an important component of judging. They can justify why you painted the part that colour, why you added weathering or why you chose a particular decal scheme.

If you are entering a model for technical judging then you might want to have a look at this article courtesy of the Melbourne Model Expo. It outlines what is required regarding references for the model or models you are entering.

Or you can look at the following reference pack from an award winning model from a few years ago.
