Cool Smallest Aircraft Competition-- Ends Jan. 1 2015

Small planes welcome, anything smaller than 1:200 will be accepted in this competition. So, this is organized on a point system. And no using pennies for size comparison! I have a large penny and I know that one. You can have as many entries as you want. The one with the most points for a single build wins the competition. If multiple get the same top score we will have additional rounds.

1. eyewear/tools. Did you do this all with your bare hands and naked eyes or did you use a microscope and microns-thick tweezers? Glasses for farsightedness do not count. Total possible: 5 points.

2. Scale. How small is the model? Is it 1:201 or 1:99999? Total possible: 20 points.

3.Accuracy. Is it a perfect replica of the plane or is it a big ball of scrap paper with wings? This one may be compensated by quality of the camera, but we can tell if it is really accurate or not. Total possible: 10 points.

4. Other. Are there any striking or unique attributes about your build, like landing gear or flight capability? Or is it your own design? Total possible: 5 points.

5. Ease of Build at Large Scale/Complexity. Did you choose a build with so many complex features it took up 100 pages or did you do a two piece 1 dimensional baby-level plane? Total Possible:10 points

Total for a perfect score: 50 points. Have fun! And does anyone want to be a judge? We'll need 3 or 4.

Wow, I just saw your 1/1200 airliner *quietly scraps 1/800 c-130 that he thought would be the showstopper*

Oh yes, I remember that. I need to remake it as it was broken.

I just finished a 1/350 paper replika 777. If I get John's consent, I'll post pictures. For the contest, are we allowed to have multiple entries or jut one?

Multiple are accepted but they don't form a lump sum of points, they count as separate entries

A few years ago, I made some 2.5D models in 1/700 scale for the Axis & Allies Naval Miniatures game.

See: Axis & Allies Naval Miniatures: War at Sea | Board Game | BoardGameGeek

The planes on the left are my paper planes(IJN Kates) and the planes on the right are the commercial planes(TBD Devastators) which are used as playing pieces in the game.


Are 2.5D models eligible for the Smallest Aircraft Competition ?
