First I would like to thank everyone that voted for the Arado and for all the very kind comments, :) and to thank all those that took part in the xmas comp and made it a fun competition. :)

There has been some great builds and some excellent mods and skills shown this year, so in a way we are all winners by learning or doing something new. :dance: :dance:

And a well done to Paul for arranging this years comp, he deserves a round of applause. :clap: :clap:

As Gundog says, this was my first effort at doing a mod like this. Normally the most mod's I've done on a kit is to use different aftermarket decals.

It was fun building this model and seeing what I could do to it. And thank you to DJG who did this model last year and showed us what could be done, all I did was take it to the next level.

Well done to Morrigan for coming a close second :clap: :clap: ;)

I hope you all enjoyed the comp, and hope you are looking forward to next years one.
