IPMS Vancouver’s “Big Mouth” Model Competition (Naval)

IPMS Vancouver is the lower mainland’s largest community dedicated to the hobby of plastic model building.

The “Big Mouth” competitions are annual events, judged every January (Auto), April (Aircraft), July (Armour), November (Naval), that focuses on basic model building skills.

Scales for the “Big Mouth” are usually dictated by popularity. For example aircraft are usually in 1/72 and 1/48 – 1/32 is cool, but way too big for most of us. The year’s winner chooses the subject that will be modelled for the next year.

Any finished model kit can be entered so long as it meets the IPMS Out of the Box rules which prohibit aftermarket detail parts, scratch-building or conversions. Members compete on a voluntary basis. Depending on the anticipated number of entries, one month before judging the Aircraft and Armour categories, kits entered are put on display at one of the local hobby shops so that the modelling public can vote on the subjects.  The trophy goes to the kit that gets the most votes overall. This is your chance to show your buddies what a great modeller you are.

IPMS Vancouver’s “Kit of the Year” Event

IPMS Vancouver’s annual competition for club members. The only requirement for entry is that the model being entered must have been brought to a regular club meeting in the past 12 months in some sort of in-progress or finished state.

The subject is up to the builder, who can enter as many kits as he or she wishes, as long as the meeting rule is met.  Again, entry is voluntary.

Members vote on the kits entered to determine who takes home the trophy. Last chance for bragging rights.

The event is open to non-members at the club’s regular drop-in rates.
