What is the Kittyhawk Cup?

The Kittyhawk Cup is a special Scale ACT judging category where all entrants must build a particular 1/72 aircraft model, to our “Out of the Box” rules.

Oh, and why call this special aircraft competition the “Kittyhawk Cup? This comes from a project undertaken by ACTSMS members to build eight Academy 1/72 P-40E Kittyhawk models in RAAF markings for the Australian War Memorial.
