A really nice comment to me at Euro was from the great Rob Hendon . He said if someone gave me a few hundred quid to buy one model in the competition room he would buy my Dear John figure.That was brilliant,Thank you Rob.
More great pics Andy, thanks fer posting...a few of my faves there too, the Sands of Time dio was awesome, that last pic of the little Japanese tank - painting was perfect in my eyes and the figure of the French WW1 soldier releasing the carrier pigeon was so exquisitely posed and painted
If yer think yer one in a million, that means there's 7500 more EXACTLY like you......
Well i`ve just been well and truely blown away......those pics are fantastic!!, now i know why i don`t do figures , one of my favs was the sniper with the piece of wheat hanging out his mouth......if i ever did a fig then thats someink i`d like to do..........ferk!!!, what am i saying

To be honest Andy it is one of my favourite builds, when you look behind the scenes of how it materialised you realise just how much bloody work/skill/time/patience etc goes into it, nah!!......you well and truly deserved that as i mentioned fella, and yeah i think it was about time lady luck shined on ya after ya unwell worrying moments bud..........one thing is.......ya gotta go some to top it next year

This was Best In Show,but I couldn't find anybody who could REALLY explain to me,why 2 of the colours are being blown one way,but the third one is in the other direction?......I know,yer gonna say "You're bein Stoopid again!!!",aren't ya?
When St Pete asks me what I've done,I'll say:- "Nuffin!! It's what I'm good at!!"
Tom - Certainly not a requirement but more of a fashion thing and much of the armour and larger vignettes tend to go this way - I think the plain gloss black plinth was first really promoted by the Scandinavian modelers this side of the pond and the fad has crept south
Maybe I'm a little snob, or maybe I don't like conformism, but I think the best base was Per Lund's one, that suited perfectly the rest of the dio...

Sure it was a great weekend over there!
These next two models from the KMK site stand were 1/72 scale.
EDIT: These models were on the Scale Model Factory display and are from Roy Schurgers a scale model factory member. He won 2 gold medals in the dio class with "Friday the 13th" and "Always look at the bright side of life", two splendid 1/35 scale dios.
