March 2018 IPMS Ottawa Contest

It was another dark and stormy night, so the turnout was rather small. We had five models in the "Anything Civilian" competition. 

Each March we have a different theme competition. The contest in March 2019 will be "In Enemy Hands", and refers to items used by one country then captured and re-used or re-purposed by a country on the other side of a conflict. An example would be a US attack aircraft captured by the PAVN forces and used against forces in South Viet Nam; or a Nazi battleship captured and used in atomic testing at Bikini.
