  1. Love this format for showing all the winners!

    1. Thanks Ray!

  2. When r u going to show us the models WOW

  3. Congratulations to Wayne Layne for his superb P-38 “Lightning.” That’s like building two airplanes!

  4. Couple of errors on your captions, on the Tiger Moth you listed as a DH 88. The DH 88 is the dehavilland comet. And on the last pic of the F-86 you listed as a Canadian AF ship when it clearly has US markings.

  5. Ted Roman

    Great shot of my Super Cub. thanks Ray
