The Grand Master's Category & Award. We've created a special category for any model that has won the "Best of Class" award at any level whether local, regional National, or other modeling contest venue. "Best of Class" meaning Best Aircraft, Best Auto, Best of Show, etc. This category is not for those who won theme awards, special wards, or the individual category winners (typical 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place winners). Models in this category are not eligible for any other show or contest awards; i.e. Theme, President's Award, Best of Show, etc. Must bring proof; i.e. trophy accompanying the entry.
