Good result for the Lancer - then onwards

I finished the Lancer and took it to Colchester on Monday. Much to my amazement, it came 3rd! Sonia Maes did a great job on the old Airfix Draken she received, and - in spite of complaining about how dreadful it was - how she didn't ever - ever - ever want to do an aircraft again - how she tried airbrushing and didn't like it - she won the competition - so well done Sonia.

Meanwhile, for me, it is back to the Revell Scout car that Valerie gave me for Xmas. I am finding some of the detail in the suspension and transmission is very poor and the instructions don't really help in placing any individual part, so I am constantly recovering from earlier mis-installs. However, the upper detail seems to be quite good. I am some way from finishing so it won't make Ipswich this week.
