    Vic, you've done marvelous job. Model look great from general appearance to engine and other details. You, should have entered in advanced and not intermediate category.
    However, I'm slightly puzzled looking at the picture of your Stuka's engine. It appears to me more like the engine of Ju-87B and not the later series.

    Here's one picture I found of the engine of Ju-87D. "G" and "D" series had different engine layout then earlier models...

    Thank guys, very much appreciated

    Ops, that’s what comes of not having sufficient research info to hand. Oh well, it is my first Group Build and boy did I enjoy it.

    I entered the category 2 as I considered my skill to be somewhat limited, having only previously built straight from the box without added detail. This is my first competition build and the first kit I have ever done with enhancements and as I progressed with the build I was inspired by the techniques and skills of others in the forum and have wherever possible applied what I've seen and learnt into the detail of this model, consequently the finished item has gone way beyond my initial expectations.

    Needless to say folks, if you believe that I should be moved up a peg to Category 3 in this Group Build, no sweat, that ok by me. I'm just happy to have made a model which has given me great pleasure to build and has seen a vast improvement in my modelling skills, not to mention the fact that I'm more than pleased with the outcome.
    Also thanks to all you great modellers out there for unwittingly helping me along.

    Very nice job Vic. You gonna build a dio to put it on? I like the ladder and table and with a couple of figures, it would make a great maintenance scene.
