Aw, I'm sure I could've at least been a runner-up if I had finished my GM.  :)  (Well, not really - the runners-up and indeed many of the models for Feb were quite impressive.)

Nice work, everybody.

Congrats Luca, I'm honored just to be a runner-up to you (not that I'd ever compare my newbie stuff to the Briegel, you're on a whole different level, one that I can only hope to approach one day).  I can't wait to see what you do next.

Congrats, it's truly a great masterpiece, and it's now even a build-off piece. My bet for MOTY.  :)

Luca definitely deserved this. He's such a swell guy, a true artist, and genius when it comes to mechanical designs. Bravo!

Well, I don't know whether to quit scale modeling all together or just leap head-long into the glue, paint and pastels.  :shock:  This work is nothing short of amazing.

Luca=The New Kondo!   :lol:

Great work and congrats to you, Sir Luca!  :D
