Yo Tony, thanks. Plus, it looks like I've hit the big time over at Hyperscale posting-
IPMS USA Nationals 2009 Part Two - Aircraft 2 by Tony Bell

This was a real fluke, I didn't place at the region IV contest. But I guess the different judging and lots of splits helped, I got a 1st in armor
Thanks again for the really nice pictures Tony!

Oooh, was that your Mk.IV Male? That was my favourite armour piece of the show, no exaggeration. Dave Browne, who did the Lincoln Memorial shadowbox, was of a similar opinion.

I've heard that the Emhar kit is a POS, so I can only imagine the amount of work you put into it.

Cheers,
Tony

That tank is one of the nicest armor models I've seen in a long while. Don't know why, but it a great combination of detail and weathering - not overdone yet not too subtle.

Wow, thanks guys! I guess I did something right
Yes, that kit was terrible!!! After I had almost finished it I came to the conclusion that it would have been easier to scratch build the whole damn thing.
I think, aside from wanting a WWI tank model since I was 6 or 7 years old, my main motivation was having fun weathering it. The weathering wasn't too hard but I knew I had to get all those details on there to pick up the wash and dry brush correctly. It was a real struggle to finish but I'm glad it's done. I'm extra happy to win with it considering it bombed out at the regional and I had expected it to bomb out at Columbus. I'm more of an aircraft builder and I don't know finer points of armor yet.
Again, thanks

When the likes of Dave Browne (Best Dio winner) and Harvey Low (Best Armour winner) are praising your work, I think it means that you have at least a basic grasp of the finer points of armour.

Cheers,
Tony

Point taken But I still don't really know what an armor judge looks for past basic building. I'm an aircraft guy, I was just guessing
