    Since we are now into our 8th, yes, thats EIGHTH Group Build, I have had the desire for the last couple months to put up some sort of showcase for some of the phenominal work we have been churning out... A place where someone can come and view the best of the best...

    Since theres no "right" way to pick and choose em, Im going with the Winning Models and a couple Honorable Mentions... Please enjoy this look back into 2 years of kickass model building from across the Globe...
