there. I've never entered any model in any contest anywhere, probably never will. Not saying you shouldn't, if that's what motivates you by all means do it. My problem is, I usually don't have all day to spend at a model show, and I don't want to have to be there all day for judging. And honestly, I'm not confident in my builds to think they are worthy of any kind of award, because they just aren't. I occasionally post a build on here, and that's enough satisfaction for me.
