Fantastic, some superb models there for sure. No, ALL of them were superb.  :thumbsup:
 
Can we go party now?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Allowing the zombie apocalypse to stop proceedings shows a distinct lack of dedication... ;)

Great models everyone!   Congrats to all the well deserved winners.
So I got that going for me...which is nice....

Well done guys. A great year for models. And a great show.
