    Tough choice but in the end went with plain and simple, Vic's Arado AR 196-A2.

    This is not an easy one. There was a lot of determination went into many of these builds all of which deserve their own individual accolade and there were some unusual subject. Narrowing it down to about five it then became a tossup between Mike's Arado and Kevin's Walrus and in the end I went for the Walrus.

    Tough call, in the end, I had to go with Wayne's BV. Close 2nd IMO was Don's diorama idea with the kingfisher.

    I think by the spread, we are all getting closer to producing great looking builds.

    I think with every GB the voting gets tougher. A lot of truly great and inspiring builds here. Ultimately I chose Glenn's Goose, the finish kept calling out to me to take a second look.

    I settled on Kevin's Walrus. It's a tough build and it came out great. Honourable mentions to Glenn, Wayne, and George.
