A Gentleman's Bet

What I've laid out below is the scoring guide I've composed for a modeling/painting contest between two of my friends. Now that they've both gotten their airbrushes and equipment set up, they'd like to test their mettle against one another. It's just a gentleman's bet, with the loser buying the winner a drink, but I've been chosen as the judge. With my ineptitude at painting, it should be quite interesting to see if I can break down their abilities well enough. Time will tell, as the contest won't be done until March 4th. have a look and tell me what you think. :)
