Monthly Contest Information

ribbonWe have three categories each month. You can enter Scratchbuilt, Kit Bashed, or Kit built. This should allow anyone to enter anything they are proud of and at any skill level. There is also a photo category.

Judging is by popular vote but if you wish to have your model judged by NMRA rules for the Achievement Program we will make arrangements for you. We would like to offer more judged contests so that members could gain points and experience needed to earn Achievement Program recognition.



Rules Update:

At the June 2017 BOG meeting, the Board approved revised rules. Here are the results:
