A few pics before my camera battery died. These were taken when it was really overcast and the lighting was not the greatest...I had a few exposures of 8 seconds, so the tri-pod was a must. So many more entries I wish I had time to photograph.



1/72 Abrams:












Theme winner:




One of my favourites:










I thought this was a shoe-in for the theme award, a mostly scratchbuilt Patriot launcher:


1/72 BTR:




T-90, with red LED's that lit up the circular lenses on the front:


Judges BOS and Best Small Army theme:

Got back to London and had an awesome mid-day snack. I think they were even better! Can't get BBQ like that at home!
