Congratulations to vintagemodeler!

John's "Desert Wreckage" Diorama using the Lady Be Good B-24 Liberator kit
really jumped out at me (when I first saw the photos).





Thinking back to my original judging criteria, I was hoping for entries that favored
presentation over build.  Since its virtually impossible to judge the build, fit and
finish of a model just from photos, I felt it would be completely unfair to try to do so.

And I also wanted to be fair to those who might not have the years of experience
and build skill, and give them the chance to compete on the same level as the seasoned builder.

I won't even attempt to judge vintagemodeler's build skills (although his model looks
quite well put together, if you ask me!)...but the Diorama idea, recreating the Lady Be Good
crash site...using an actual outdoor location and burying the aircraft in real "sand"...
actually made me say "wow" when I saw it.
And thats what I was looking for.

Before I say any more, I want to comment on the other entries:

I have been watching the progress of Darwin's Grumpy B-24 Diorama build since it was started,
and I've voiced a lot of "oohs" and "ahs" as it evolved. It was a tough choice to put anything ahead
of it (at the end) but I think it probably came down to the actual photos themselves.

Same thing goes for milenio's NCAR Hercules display.  Gerardo has always put a lot of
work into his model displays and goes to a lot of trouble to promote and support
modeling and historical subjects.  There is no question he created another fabulous
presentation...but in the end, I had to judge what I saw based on the photo quality
and composition.

Bobby Six's Sea Vixen is a great looking build, along with Dalmi's Spanish Air Force Texan.
Did you notice the Pilot figure Dalmi handcrafted? complete with his own face?!
Both excellent entries, but lacking the final presentation wow factor I was looking for
to earn either of the top spots.

Anyway, congratulations to all...prizes have been sent.
And thankyou to those who participated.
Please view all the entry photos in the Galleries.
Maybe we will give this a try again next year.
