CONSTRUCTION AND FINISH COMPETITION (THE RIPMAX SHIELD) RULES

This annual competition is designed to encourage model aircraft building within the Club.

Completed models, which must have flown, must be brought to the September Wednesday meeting for judging. A maximum of two models per member may be entered.

In order that the construction element can be properly judged, models should also be brought along in unfinished state to at least one earlier meeting.

The models will be judged by the winner of the previous year’s event who may enlist an assistant. This will determine the winner of the Ripmax shield.

When presented at the September meeting for final judging, the model must be supported by a completed data sheet (available HERE and on the night). During the evening, all members present will be invited to view the models and vote for their first choice. This will determine the winner of a ‘People’s choice’ award.

An additional prize will be awarded for the best model from a member who has not previously won an award in the competition.

The winner of the shield will be asked to be the chief judge in the following year. All award winners will be deemed Previous Winners for subsequent years’ competitions.

The other entries, clockwise from bottom left: Trevor Hewson’s Goppingen Wolf, Tim Calvert’s Cub, Richard Docketty’s Eagle, Mike Roach’s Sea Hurricane, Frank Bayes Quadratwirl and finally an electric conversion of a WR Jones plan for a rubber powered (yes, really!) Handley Page Halifax dating from the early 50s. I didn’t catch the builder’s name and it was not actually entered in the competition. A work of art!
