Nats Ships Category Missing??

Recommended Posts

Noticed that the category for "Commercial Ships" is not listed for the 2019 Nats.  Was it removed from the contest or just a mistake on the category listings?

If it has been removed, then what category would a 1/400 Titanic be entered?

Due to lack of participation. 

Prior to last year’s show I warned that the category was in danger of being deleted if there was not more entrants.   There were less than three entrants in the last couple of years.   The category was an experiment requested by some of my judges an entrants.   It ran longer than the 3 year trial it was initially given, but never caught on. 

Commercial entries will roll back into the categories they were originally split from.

Thanks Ed for the answer. Thought that might be the case. Still unsure which category it would fit into. Any idea?

Bob, I would expect it to go into the "Ships; 1/400 and Larger" Category.

Except, there is no category Ships: 1/400 and larger in the national competition.

1:350 refers to 1/450 to 1/101

405 - 1/350 Destroyers, Escorts, Corvettes, and other small ships (except boats) ... where larger commercials were originally split off from

While the Titanic was not a small ship, neither is it an aircraft carrier, battleship or cruiser, nor was it a boat.   It may be a submarine, but they are designed to surface at least as many times as it sinks.

My apologies Ed; I was going by a category used in a couple contests here. Perhaps someone in the Ships Judges can adjust the description of Category 405; or the other category that has 1/350 carriers and battleships to say "All Ships: 1/350 Scale" so commercial ships can be added back in. Otherwise he'll probably have to enter it into the Miscellaneous category.
