Excellent coverage Rui--you managed to photograph absolutely everything by the look of it!!

Alas on Sunday my knee was so bad I was not able to methodically get around the show--so missed some of the excellent models you have captured!

Good stuff

Rui, the model in image #31...any details of the kit, artist, etc? The water rolling off the sub is extremely well done!

Hi Mark

That's Guido Hopp's Revell 1/144 VII-C Uboot
Impressive indeed

That was the result of plus 30 hour editing the photos - the lighting conditions of the venue is very dim, and then we cannot take tripods inside the competition area (not that I had one, but I could borrow)

Rui - Quite simply you've provided us with a fantastic expo of Telford - thank you!

The camo on the Mauritania build is stunning.

Cheers
