To stir the pot a bit, the class sign does say 'scratchbuild/conversion' so if you did a lot of your own things it would slide in.

Yeah, I see this in the club I belong to. Most of the car guys only put in a little extra effort (plug wires). Some will open and hinge the trunk, but that is it. Any time I suggest they try a card model, even a simple one, all I hear is "that's too much work."....

Of course when I build a plastic car model I consider it a diversion, Don't usually detail it and skip the plug wires. It's a diversion for me. Something a little more simple to do....

I hear that a lot at the model car club I go to, not as much at the IPMS. And a lot of 'you got to be nuts to want to try that'. Of course I get that a lot also when I drag in a CitroŽn, Hispano-Suiza or Ursus tractor instead of the usual muscle car or street rod.
