    Nicely done Peter. The six 'judging' shots are looking a touch dark on my monitor, but no problem - I'll enhance them if needed.

    Thanks Terry. It was a bit dark and gloomy when I finished yesterday. I usually take the photos outside, so apologies for that.

    Thanks Parsifal. There was no secret to the canopy, that's how it was from the manufacturer. I used white glue to attach them to the model. Sometimes you can dip them in "future" to protect and improve them, but these were excellent straight from the pack.

    Cheers

    Peter
