Matt,

Late to the party as usual, I am, but I want to tell you how much I appreciate these Zeros. Your Ameiro - I may try your mix. Also the preshading of the control surfaces.

Excellent work on all!



Better late than never!

Thanks for joining in - I almost didn't notice your post.



The A6M5 took third in class at an IPMS contest, I never could get an answer as to why it placed about the Rufe nor why the Rufe didn't earn an honorable mention despite the increased scope of work and the fact that it's a technically superior.

It always leaves me a little bitter and jaded. The chief judge said he didn't have time to go over it with me. How can we improve without knowing where we fell short?
