Constructive critisism ...
Let's do a constructive critisism, I have noticed this foto of a winner, checking it out have to say that nothing those not benefit the claimed award. Notice the textile texture on the wings, the differenbt plywood texture and the balanced overall weathering stains and all ... BUT and a big but, saying again not to claim anything of the modellers merit as this overall presentation stands out from the fotos I have seen ... I need to add one thing the wings and plywood texture are all decals [Uschi], brilliant product, a nightmare to make especially the plywood as one has to trace each panel, paint seperate underlay and then fix piece by piece but again anyone with patience and a good eye can do it ... what has an edge IMPO is that he made an overall weathering effect so well balanced and no part is missed, oil stains, weathered textile colours, different wood etc etc... then again it is good paintwork and well planned and balanced, figure tan-nejk ... merit goes for the spoked wheel but is that scartch or PE? Then again no groundwork and for presentation sake an aircraft being serviced, open engine, open wheel etc etc to show detaiul and then put the pilot instead of mechanics ... ironic eh ... but common on aircraft displays!
So comparing betwen Joe's model where the panels have been all painted single and this I fee no award is nonsense ... again I am judging on fotos ... I might be totally wrong!
