On another note looks the BOS for Telfor was won by an Italian, seems they took everything this year ...
That is why I mentioned Michalangelo's David, probably the best sculpting in the world and the iconic fallic abstract monument on Luqa roundabout ... both are artistic, yet everyone can come up with his own artistic judgement
On another hand scale modelling I feel it is evolving into a miniature art form, unfortunately to the frustration of those who are rivet counters, who their reasoning is just having a perfect scaled down replica ... personally I feel there should be a balance of both ... but that is my opinion and like Tancred philosophy, everyone has one : )
We are taking this hobby tooooooo serious enjoy the evolution of it !!!!! Happy modelling!

iCocker wrote:Excuse the misunderstanding, meant that if you thought that judges have the same views I think you have a misconception especially when the term 'abstract or fantasy' is involved ... every one has different opinions and rarely the group agrees on the same opinion without discussion ... there are judges who are in the search of mistakes, there are judges who are in search of what good the modellers did vive la differeance hux ... it's a long story, but then again the modeller has to be brave enough to go and ask the judges what made that decision good or bad as from that one evolve ... finally it does not mean they are always right but at least you can reflect on their views aswell !

First I think we are discussing Telford not Euro, but on the other hand you had a response from an international judge might you have not agreed with his views, BUT you had the chance to ask views from the best dioramists around ... they were just near you all the time and not one of them is a snob!
