    Very tough choice between Dan's Stuka, Andy's 262 and Corey's B-24! I'll have to think about this for a bit.

    I had to give it up for Peter's Dirty Dora... A superbly well done kit....

    Vic's Stuka detailing needs a shout out as well...

    Dan yours did it for me.I really liked the way you weathered the craft to make it look as if it was actually there. And in no way shape or form am I belittling the other entries, I loved Ozhawks B-25 and Beaufighter, and and Terry's Boston and Lancaster,and Maglars Liberator and the list foes on. It is a blast to watch you guys on this forum cheer each other on and help each other out no matter what. You all are to be commended for excellence. Ok, I'll get off my box.:oops:

    I went with Pete's B-25.. Loved the bat nose art, the precise weathering, and the beast just looks the part. It was difficult between the B-25 and Dans Stuka, but the bat caught me!

    None the less, I believe we all did an excellent job and made for some fun and enduring times through the grind of these kits. Well done all!!

    Some top notch builds and some great improvement made by all members, but for me the Ju87of Josef Blumel by Dan stands out. But, wow there were some really great entries. Well done all!

    Cheers

    Agree with all that the choice is a very tough one.
    But I think if Lesofprimus's Stuka was photographed in the right conditions with an appropriate background it would pass muster as the real thing

    Tough choice, there are many stand out builds this time round. For me it was a hard choice between Dan's Stuka, Peter's two builds and the 262.

    In the end I went with Peter's B-25, really like the whole job. Closely (really closely) followed by the 262 and Dan's Stuka.

    Hard one to decide this time around.

    There are some great builds here...congratulations to all !!!

    The four that really stand out for me: Dan's Ju 87G, Corey's B-24, Peter's B-25, and Terry's DB-7...of which, Dan's Stuka takes the cake IMO. Fantastic work mate!

    Also went with Corey's B-24. Tough to choose. Les' Ju-87 or Terry's Boston? Both are great builds, but in the end I went with Corey's. Anyway, great job, everyone! :thumbleft:
