    Ray you are right to be happy about that comment. Coming from him, it beats any medal or award you could win. He is such a great sculptor and thanks to him now we have some really nice figures we can use to accompany our planes in 32nd scale. i have painted a lot of them not just for myself. Their detail is exquisite and they make a plane look so much better and real. Love his work!! you deserve all he said about Weymar.

    Congratulations to all our boys at SMW2013!

    Awards are based on personal opinions and politics so it is not really a matter of who wins or otherwise. What is important is the interaction with the rest of the modelling fraternity.

    Hope all visiting the show had a good time.

    We are proud of all of you!

    So I tell you a little story which was a grand joke during Euro, so certain Brit judges [inc the top brass] were amazed at this particular still life dio, which consisted with a very large [1/8 or more] 45ton barrel a jerry can and a bucket all rusty and derelict then a half eaten apple and all around is surrounded with vegetation, wasps, spiders, webs and butterflies ... creative to say the least and when one sees the foto very realistic, but up close and personal and in that scale the vegetation was just laser cut and with just a wash etc etc ... end of the line, I give the merit for creativity and minute detailing as insects were all scratch but can't see a story in it ... if not about the bees and the wasps, but that was another story before we knew about sex ... but that is me.

    Now to get a joke ... during Euro this was given a silver then again changed to a gold for originality ... by the way he put this in civilian miscilleneus category if it was put in dios or vignettes he would have been judged different, infect he never enters there as the only time he was faired badly ...

    End of story ... nothing more I can say here. But this weekend made me think why that action happened during Euro ... so these things happen in UK, m'hemmx x'taghmel ... and we complain about WERoma? LOL

    Photos are better but from my experience in judging sections like this in European shows this would never reach a high medal, issa the difference in European/USA show medals are given to a standard of achievement, hence the idea that more then the same similar medals are given, one can have X amounts of Golds if there are outstanding models or no Golds given if standard is not reached.

    Telford is different models challenge each other and 1 Gold, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze is given and then a number of Commended.

    Standard of this model is typical Verlinden style of the 80s/90s with current paintwork fashions chipping etc etc  ... story side line basic with lots of faults, like why did they surrender, is the tank KO?, without petrol?, one of the crew is wounded but why and with what? I see no damage just a neat looking AFV with just usual chipping, perfect masking and a white flag ... ??????

    Groundwork with the usual pole perfectly in the centre of left corner and tall groundwork on the other,  tank perfectly in the middle, flat base, figures one on the floor and the other exclusive on the back engine put there to fill the empty space but not the story,typical Verlinden style which nowadays has been passed the era ... but then depends who the judges were, if they are still entrenched in that vacuum of ideas ...

    What is bad and that is why I am annoyed is that modellers achieve a target at Telford, in military section [can't speak about the other sections which probably are not so degenarated] and think they are doing well and when they go elseware will fair badly and then start complaining over the net about bad judging decisions at Euro, Spain, Italy etc etc [not saying that these are perfect far from that] ... now one has to conclude were the worst decisions were taken ...

    Ray I would wonder more if that happen and we all now how the Brits fare in WExpo! But again we give credit to an original subject, the other is just laid back Verlinden stereo type ... during the weekend there was the Monte San Savino Expo in Italy, one will get the difference for example why John Rosengrad from USA went there Smile
