Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

As one of the Wally's who failed to nominate it for you, I second this nomination! :thumbsup:

Probably under: Best Sci Fi; Best Multi Jet; (others may come up with more).




(Edit to fix as per post below. :thumbsup: )

Actually, Single Jet wouldn't work. The ASF-X Shinden has two jet engines, one above the other. Not side by side like on other normal jets. You can see it in this page of the instruction sheet. ;) So it would probably fit in a Multi-engine Jet category.

Thank you so much for the nomination of my little diorama of Thunderchild vs. the Tripods! I still am new to all of the things here on the forum and to my shame I only just discovered this section...
Can I also nominate? and if so, does it have to be a new subject or can I also nominate something that already has been named?

Ideally nominations should IMO be new models.  However, I see no harm in older ones (particularly my own, of course, hint! Hint!) being renominated.

Not much competition there so far.  ;D ;)

Kit's Martin Monterey beaching trolley. A thing of magnificence, and worthy of a nomination in its own right.  I suppose it counts as a "miscellaneous item". I eagerly await the chance to nominate the aircraft too, assuming one or other of the rest of you don't get in before me.
