    That's a corker Jamie, and I love that low-key shot in the second group of pics.
    I'm the same with models, particularly larger scales - I always think I could have added more here, or made it better there and so on. Probably why the collection keeps growing, then being replaced, only to grow again !

    Oh, and Jamie, please repost ur pics for us Judges, u are missing one of the shots from the 10'oclock postside....

    Its a model to be proud of and the pics should not have a date stamp on them, distracts from the Judging, if u take my drift...

    i left the pannel lines untouched but they were quite deep so they are still quite visible.to be honest there is nothing specific just a general feeling that it could have been better. i suppose we are all our own worst critics but thanks for you kind comments guys
