Display/Static Models Display/Static Models
Stick and Tissue models that are built as static display models. Quite often display models will have much more details in cockpits, engines and control surfaces. Detail is limited only by the modeler. These models are not made to fly on rubber or electric power.

Dime Scale and Pseudo Dimers Dime Scale and Pseudo Dimers
Dime Scale models come in two flavors: Traditional, and Pseudo. Both compete under the same rules.
Traditional Dimers are built from plans produced during the “golden age” of modeling; Pseudo Dimers are built
from contemporary designs that honor the methods, structural simplicity, and details typical of those early plans.
1.0 BASIC RULES
A. Dime Scale models are to be of simple design and easy construction such as those built from 10 cent kits or
plans representing full scale airplanes built prior to December 31, 1949.
B. Wing span: 16 inches maximum.
