    I'm not able to access the link in the other thread to see all the planes. Is there a way around this without visiting each thread?

    Hard to choose! My top three were probably Wayne's, Terry's Spit and Vic's Cat. I ended up going with the Cat due to all of the extras, and I know how big one of those models builds so, so I can picture just how impressive it is!

    Yeah I like Rochie's P-40 also but you know that widow is something else. :lol:

    You know it would be easy to go with either the Cat or the Uhu. The Cat has just so much stuff done to it. Amazing what you can do with a lot of time on your side. The Uhu, Spitfire, and Cat were all very well researched and of course there is the exceptional skill that each possesses. But you know, skill like that can win everytime. I want to look for the one that did an exceptional job and grew as a modeller personally. I'm leaning toward those other commonwealth planes.

    went with Vic's Cat in the end, there was nothing between that and Andy's 219 so the extra's Vic put in tip it his way for me.
    great job Vic and Andy two outstanding builds

    This was a hard one, so many good builds and it almost ended up as a toss of the coin but in the end even though it may knock my own build out of the running, it was those squiggles of Andy that impressed me.

    Well Vic, we cancelled each other out! I went with your Catalina.

    I think everyone did a tremendous job in this build.
