Newsletter 307: Leganes 2018

Leganes 2018

Leganes 2018
This weekend we went to the biggest scale modeling contest in Spain, held at Leganes (Madrid), where in addition we also had the honor of being part of the "judges". Being a judge (well, acting as such for a while) is a quite complex and complicated task, but it does have one huge advantage: to be able to see all the models really really close, calmly, with time to spare, and with an analytical eye.

Thanks to that, we were able to hallucinate with the absolute perfection of the Honda RC166 that achieved the Special Gold Medal on the civilians models category, and that was on the verge of becoming the Best Work of the Contest. Absolutely delicious

SpotModel, always looking for the excellence ;)
