    It is a shame that the Short Sterling wasn't finished in time, it was a very strong contender.

    I was a bit embarrassed that mine were the only completed entries in the beginner category, but it certainly makes me look good to get two placings for two entries. what do you do with someone like me though....im just not up to standard yet to compete at a higher level. Need to find some new competitors to spread it out a bit. its not mostly about the competition, I get that, but it is still a competition, or should be.

    Well done though to the real model builders. intermediate looked like it was a real tussle.

    Advanced was slightly less competitive, simply because of the numbers, but that is not to say the competition was not stiff.

    I can honestly say that for me the buzz is not about winning, its about learning skills and making stuff that I really like to look at. in this place the support you get from people is really amazing as well i might add

    All of us were beginners at one time, well there might be one exception.... You're doin okay.

    And you have hit the nail on the head with the second part. We build to our skill level, improving a little every build. No oone expects more!
