Brian, I spend a lot of time on you tube, and look at the IPMS "meets". From what I can surmise, that most of the 1/25th model cars are foreign(sp?) makes. Most of the European countries(and the U K) are really "big" on IPMS. The IPMS Nationals in Rchmond are worth looking
at, IMHO. Contests? Nah, not for me. Judged two IPMS shows YEARS ago. Took ALL the FUN out of model building(for me). That's one of the reasons I have not, and will not, comment, good, bad, or indifferent, on ANY of the models built by the members of this here board !!!
