The category F-NS is divided into the following groups and classes Group F2 – true-to-original scale models of ships/boats built according to technical documentation without using Industrially produced parts Class F2-A – true-to-original scale models up to 900 mm in length. Class F2-B – true-to-original scale models between 900 and 1400 mm in length.
Class F2-C – true-to-original scale models over 1400 mm in length.Group F4 – models built from kits or industrially produced parts and models that have identifiable basic attributes and parts of ships and are visibly completed.Class F4-A – models built from kits or industrially produced parts and models that have identifiable basic attributes and parts of ships and have to undergo a steering test but no construction evaluation.Class F4-B – models built from kits or industrially produced parts that have to undergo a steering test and construction evaluation.Class F4-C – models made by plastic injection as well as those that are sold as kits or made of industrially produced parts. Models undergo a steering test and construction evaluation. To improve the models, some changes using other materials are allowed. The model’s hull, deck and superstructure must be parts from the original kit.Group F6/F7Class F6/F7 – true-to-original and close-to-original models of ships and boats for team maneuvers (F6) or individual maneuvers (F7) as well as equipment, if connected to ships/boats and types of boats (i.e., floating cranes, drilling rigs, dockyard machines/installations for transferring cargo, suction and bucket ladder dredges, etc.)Group F-DSClass F-DS – true-to-original and close-to-original steam-drive models; with propeller drive, side paddle wheels or rear paddle wheels. It has to have a fully functional steam engine (of one or more cylinders) or steam turbinesGroup F-NSS – true-to-original and close-to-original sailing boats in any scale. The adequacy of the model will be valuated as a part of the construction evaluationClass F-NSS-A – Triangular rigged Ships (modern sails).Class F-NSS-B – Triangular, Gaff, Jigger rigged Ships (without square rigging).Class F-NSS-C – Square rigged ships and other types of sails (Latin, yard sails).Class F-NSS-D – multi-hull boats and boats with special drive.
