    It took some head scratchin' and some time but I had to pick Crimea River's Hellcat. Thought that the weathering was very well done. Wish I could vote for them all.

    It's going to take me awhile to decide. The one thing I can say is I'm glad I'm not a judge. 8)

    The Hellcat got my vote, but that takes away very little from a the very fine builds in all classes. well done CR - a great bird! It's a pity that there were a few that didn't make the finish, I was really looking forward to seeing these done, but maybe we will see many of these in the near future, and I'm sure Wayne will complete his P-47 when Guttorm runs out of details on Ju88's. Do you think so? :rolleyes:

    Cheers

    Hey thanks guys, I'm truly humbled! They are all great but I gave my nod to Igor's P-51. Great colours and some nice, subtle weathering.

    It took me about 15 - 20 minutes of just looking over the planes and it was a toss up between Terry's 51, Bemay's 47 and the Hellcat. Went with the Hellcat - it just stood out for me and how cool the colors look on that thing. This was very close and the talent so very advanced for everyone. Jeez this was hard!!!!

    Tough choice, several great Builds got completed... Narrowed it down to Terry's Mustang or Andy's Hellcat...

    In the end, the Hellcat prevailed... Great work everyone...

    Great work by all, and looking forward to seeing those that are not yet finished apperaing soon.
    The Hellcat is a sure winner, but I decided to look at those which showed great improvement on previous builds. It ended up being a choice between Igor's Mustang and Jamie's Mossie, and even that was difficult. After a flip of the coin, Jamie got it!

    I agree with Terry. The same thoughts here. But this time Igor's Mustang got it finally. Not because it was of the Polish squadron and famous Polish pilot.But because of Igor's great effort , taking the model scale into consideration.

    They're all very good, in the end I went for Terry's unusual Mustang.

    With all - bloody hard choice...superb work by all, but I think Peter's P-38 takes the cake, very closely followed by Igor's and Terry's P-51s...
