    Well the show is over for another year...but I took lots of pics just need to sort them all out now.

    The news is....

    Ta152H Prptotype : First - Small Scale Enhanced.
    Me 262A-1a : Second - Out of Box Medium Scale
    Fw190A-9 : Commended - Medium Scale Modified. Category was changed from medium Enhanced due to switching the standard A-8 prop to the A-9 Wide Prop.

    Some real tough opposition this year... there were some fantastic models entered!

    So stay tuned!:D

    Congratulations Wayne. Good news. Looking forward to the pictures.
    I knew Ta 152 would win, but what kind of opposition you faced there when your superb Me 262 came second?

    Great news mate, well done! Pity about the category change for the 190A - that should have been a First. Think the judges need a kicking! Maybe they're related to Brit football referees?!!!
    Looking forward to the pics!

    Now we're talkin'.

    I was beginning to wonder if this thread was like a wooden leg. Useful. But annoying as hell with my full expectations.

    More. More. More.
