    I was torn between a few, but I ended up going with Dan's F4U, mainly because of what the purpose was behind it and what it means.

    It's almost impossible to pick the best one out of this group...they are all outstanding.

    It took me about 15 minutes and countless scrolling up down to figure out my choice!

    Everyone here can be given congrats on a job well done! :thumbright:

    Agreed. While all the models presented were top notch I had to vote for Les's Corsair for the same reason as Catch. The research, co-operation and input between members, the internal detailing and modifications, and to top it off the weathering performed on the bird to match the photo's of the real birds were simply spectacular IMHO. Great work by all.

    Thanks Kev - I just had to go with Lucas's Avenger. There are some really fantastic entries, but I have to say that working at 1/144 scares the *%^ out of me. :D. It's my favorite.

    For 'overall effect', if I have to choose one, it's Wayne's - that Frank looks REAL!
    A close tie at 2nd Dan's and Terry's.

    Has to be said though that all three have the advantage of large scale, and for pure workmanship, Lucas takes top honours in my opinion.

    Great stuff guys and whenever you feel the need to get rid of your model, you know where to send it :lol:

    So hard to choose, I'll not mention them all, as the story would be too long but I would like to pick out a few:
    I must say I loved Vicking's entries for making KNIL aircraft. He really did a good job making them especially as there is not so much info. I noticed he likes making out-of-the ordinary birds (see for instance the next groupbuild). I would like to give him a special nod for that.

    Dan's bird is absolutely awesome. The eye for detail is marvellous and I like the dedication he's put into it. The weathering looks absolutely great.

    Finally Imalko who didn't take the threaded path of a kit, but decided to make it from scratch. Here you don't just show your skills with painting, but you must also be very inventive while building the model. I think that it came out great. With all these exelent builds, there must be a factor why you choose for a model. In this case I go for the originality of Imalko's model. Great job!
