Line Art aka Multi-View/Three View (VU)
A competitor must provide accurate line art aka profiles from a
published resource to enable judges to confirm an entry's fidelity
to scale or at the least document non-existence of same in writing
from a recognized authority on the 1:1 man carrying aircraft.
A line art drawing created by either a competitor or unrecognized
resource can be authenticated and authorized for use after afore
mentioned recognized authority accredits the drawing as an accurate
representation in writing with the artwork and written declaration
sent to the competitor's AMA District Scale Contest Board
Representative for accreditation in writing. Accrediting document is
placed in documentation binder with its authentication document.
Now that we have that out of the way... ;^) Typically the more
multi-views you have in support of your entry the better!
These are typically not counted as more than one page of the 8 pages
comprising documentation under the AMA's and USSMA documentation
definition/limitation. There are some page size considerations
currently being reviewed which lean to the larger FAI presentation
format. Review current guidelines for this information.
Given you are brave enough to build an obscure subject with minimum
artwork/photographic support aka evidence you must be prepared for
the typical scoring which has traditionally resulted from these
subjects being entered. The judges will have a minimum amount of
documentation from which to score the model. Considering
documentation is the process by which POS proof of scale fidelity is
achieved...there are more rewarding subjects to be replicated.
The manner in which the
example documentation binderutilizes and supports the model with its line art and
photo documentation takes full advantage of the information exchange
"opportunity" for a competitor utilizing this style of
documentation. It is explicitly designed to manage the static
process from the competitor's side of the transaction.
Important elements of the model a competitor desires to showcase
judges are delivered exactly as the competitor desires them to be
presented. In this manner focus is on the competitors skill set
rather than a deficit. Because the process is typically time
sensitive...this style of documentation will tend to provide greater
return on a competitor's investment in its creation.
