Thumbs down Australian Model Expo 2006 Winners

I was looking at the results from this year's Model Expo and I noticed a number of familiar names . Congrats to Sheeds, Sam, Bryan, Mic and Ray

Here's the full list of the results -

Any chance to see these award winning masterpieces on PA?

Sam, could you re-link your vBench photos?

Hi Lawrence.

How did you even find that list?!

It's a shame Chris Leeman doesn't dwell here, as his Stug III which didn't even place is fffffantastic.

This is one of my entries, the DML Tiger 1 initial.

Sheeds, fantastic winter paint job. I like how you've done the white wash getting worn away. Congrats on the win

Sheeds have you posted your Tiger before? It's friggin' ACE mate!

I can only dream that mine looks half as good whenever I get the cajones to take it out of the box and build it.

I agree with Hilly.
At most comps its a "Hands up who wants to judge?"affair,and you often get "Judges" who dont know the subject they are looking at, ie: sci-fi guys trying to asses an unfamiliar subject.
You also get people who dont build...and have never entered a model in a comp before...judgeing. There you have it.
An old friend once said to me"Who judges the judges?".

Regards to all.
Ray.
