    Difficult choice, the B24 is lovely but I have the PE8 in my stash and I know the kit isn't the best and so to achieve such an excellent result from it is very impressive. The Airfix Blenheim is a nightmare kit but yet a first class end result. I wish my models were this good.

    This one was tough. So many wonderful builds, everyone did great. But in the end, I had to go with Glenn's B-24, "Booby Trap".
    Custom markings, and he overcame the nose misalignment with a clever fix that turned out beautiful. Hard to believe it is 1/72 scale.

    I wish I could make a choice like the rest of you.......... am stymied.

    ***By George, I think I've got it...........
    the name of each builder on a card.
    toss them in the air and the ones face up get pitched again,
    until there is only one left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My choice............ easy peasy

    Talk about some nice builds there guys and I am seeing improvement by all.But for me it all came down to that quality of paint and subject matter and Sergio's Pe-8 got my vote.I have to say Pete's,Glenn's,Bill's and Franklyn's all looked great!
