I do plan on building my own one day Phil. But not for awhile so it stays in the stash for now. :)

Just got home from Birmingham after transporting the model to the UKG charity ball/auction and totally gobsmacked.

She sold for 1400GBP.

Wow, Iain, that's roughly $1850 USD for your charity!  What great news!  You're build was so totally awesome that it's not a surprise it raised such an incredible bid for UKG.  Take a bow, Iain!  Well done.

Thanks AlW.

Have'nt a clue as to how I could possibly top this years model build. I could easily build another Star Destroyer but it will always be "just another one" at the end of the day. This one was the special one.

I do have a build planned for next year which will be a Star Trek Runabout the "USS Graham Campbell" who was the founder of the UK Garrison until he was killed in a car crash in 2003. The NCC number will be 130500 which equates to 13th May 2000 which is the date of the first ever UK Garrison trooping event. I would dearly love to get one of those 21" Mon Calamari cruiser resin kits that are out there but they are 200+GBP before you add the inevitable shafting from UK customs but never say never on that one.

I forgot to mention I got an achievement award from the garrison to acknowledge the model builds over the past three years and the money they have made for the charity pot.

Congrats, Iain!

Well done and well deserved recognition!

LLAP!
