As said before ... excellent model Charles. If there was any doubt previously of your skills, as your previous model are not really comparable because of subject and availability, this has shown exactly what you can do with an available kit. Just hope you can make it to the Open next year ... as im sure there´s more than myself, that is interested in seeing this "in the flesh".

Well done, once again for building this model. I never had any doubt that you would not win. Congratulations.

BTW, I read somewhere on this forum that Trackjam is going to make a LAV III. Can someone verify this please? Is it true?

Oh Great!!! Now someone decides to make a conversion kit after all the hard work I put into building mine . If I had known I probably would have waited. Oh well, That's life.

Thanks for the news Jason.
