What is the Sentinel Shield?

The Sentinel Shield is a special Scale ACT judging category where all entrants must build a particular AFV model, to ACTSMS “Out of the Box” rules.

Oh, and why call this special military vehicle competition the “Sentinel” Shield? This comes from the AC1 Sentinel, the Australian-designed and manufactured tank produced during WWII.
