February, 2014

(Said in dense Russian accent) "In Soviet union, model kit builds you!"
 
As you might have guessed, February's theme was
Сою́з Сове́тских Социалисти́ческих Респу́блик

 

 

Quite a good turn out, given the attednance, but it has to be said, the clear winner of the evening, was Mrs Marshall's Jaffa Cake Cupcakes.

 

However, t'was a comp night after all, so here are the results...

2nd - 1/72 Academy Il-2M by Kevin Marshall

Outright winners every one (especially the two I had), thanks to Mrs M for the frosted delights. It should be noted, Mrs M, that Kevin won't be allowed back unless he has baked goods or iced fancies of some sort with him. So please, Mrs M, won't you think of poor Kevin?!?
