I am thinking about submitting some models to a local model show in the OOB category. I was curious about some things.


1. Do show officials get to handle the models or is it strictly hands off? Do they look at the bottom??

2. Are display cases usually required?? What about labels with info like type of vehicle, model manufacturer, etc?

3. What is the best way to transport models to the show (say about 3-6 models)? Big plastic storage bins??


Any pointers and advice greatly appreciated. I am sure I will have more questions.

Different shows will no doubt have some variations , but check out this page from the Houston IPMS show for an idea of the basic requirements for entry .

Personally , I've never seen models handled at all during judging . I honestly can't think of a reason for it .
