    Thanks Richie, I feel like it's passed through Quality Control now. Trying to think of a suitable title was probably the hardest part of the project; thinking's not my strongest asset so I'm quite pleased with it ;)

    Well, it was competition night last night with an impressive display from many different genres. There were a couple of trains, a few bits of armour, a couple of figures (including this one), an aircraft carrier, even a farm. Surprisingly, there was only one plane this year but it was a cracker and came with a very personal back story complete with an audio track.

    Unsurprisingly, Andy's Fairey Swordfish was voted the winner (it got one of my votes), and Ian's very nicely detailed Marder III got second (it also got one of my votes) and Welcome The Dawn was voted third which made me extremely happy.

    A great night was had by all. Much beer was drunk, many mince pies were munched and much banter was, erm, bantered. One of the best competition nights I've been to since I joined the club a couple of years ago (y)
