    Heres the finished shots of my most frustrating but also most rewarding build

    Quite pleased with it myself - hope the shots are okay for the judges

    Looks pretty good Daniel especially those last couple of 'Air' shots.

    Would appreciate if you could try to do a few replacement shots with less shadow, if possible? want to see more detail but the shadow(s) hide it.:D

    Better shots, thanks Daniel, to judge we simply need to see all the detais to make a fair assessment, best in the sun if possible and at the right angles to the sun to get the best effect.:D
