Hi, here's pics from the nautical categories of IPMS Vancouver this year. I submitted my old Pit-Road 1/700 IJN Auxiliary Cruiser Aikoku Maru build, which won 3rd place in the "Out of the Box" nautical category, which is pictured behind the German E-boat/S-boat in the first picture below:

601 Out of the Box Category:

IJN Hosho 1923 (Fujimi kit)

1/700 USS Essex (CV9- Dragon kit)
Image

1/700 USS Minneapolis 1944 from a modified Trumpeter San Francisco 1945 kit by Steve S. of our forum who won the 604 advanced category with at least one model.

Someone left an IJN destroyer that's only 70% complete (pfft!)

All the kits in the 604 advanced category (with PE, aftermarket allowed etc.)

Submarine Category

Science Fiction category:

Thank you very much for the photos!

Do you have more photos of the LCF and Nansen class frigate?
