    Congrats to Jerry on his beautiful 262 and to all of the other builders that contributed their jets to this GB. Jets are not my preferred subject so I only contributed this single model. I definitely had some preconceptions on what this bird was going to look like (grey on grey mottling over black) but it turned out much differently than what I expected. I think that illustrates why I like these GB's so much. I'm actually learning things about the aircraft that I am building and incorporating those things as I build... how cool is that? Thanks to everyone who participate in these GB's and especially to all of the judges for their expertise and advice!

    Well done guys. Can some of you TRY to make your wheels crooked, add finger prints, silver your decals, leave seams visible, or get glue on your canopies next time to make judging a bit easier please? :lol:

    Maybe if a couple of members enter one of those 'pro built' models we've seen on e-bay, it might be easier to judge .................

    Oh my....Wow...I'm honored!!!!
    Modelling has a bit slow as of late due to life getting in the way!
    Though this "prize" is just what I needed to get back to it!!!

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to get the Blenheim finished in time (even with an extension of the GB) due to the fact it needs more work then I anticipated and the fact I need to buy some aftermarket parts for it. Oh, well I hope to make up for it.

    Anyway, thanks a lot for the gold :)
