From a discussion at work earlier this week, I think my two best models ever are Accurate Armour's Abbott


And Andrea's Dragoon on the Retreat from Moscow:


What are your best (I suggest no more than three) models?

some hard choices here as I try to improve with every model.. but here are my best

Tamiya's 2 1/2 ton CCKW... which actually won a best in class award for military vehicles in a local show a few years back..

and this one is a personal favorite I did for the wife.. which is the 4th model I built after getting into the hobby.. people see this pic and ask if its the real car.

1998 #3 Dale Earnhardt Winston Cup Car

laters.. I may have a few that are improvements or even better but these are two that I feel I gave my best on.

I've got a few that come to mind, but one holds a spot near and dear to my heart. This is the vehicle I commanded for several years. I left the vehicle just prior to deploying to Iraq in early 2003 for the invasion..She took a lot of heat and hits in theater, but her and the new crew all came home in one piece. The kit started off with the M2A2 Bradley OIF and was tweaked into my sled. This has taken numerous awards at contests I've taken her to.

And one of my favorites over the years, a 1/16 slingshot rail.

Here's a couple of my punts. Are these my "best"? Well, I like these a lot and others have seen fit to give them at least a nod at shows. Alas, no shiny cars!

The E-10 - Trumpeter kit with styrene scratch.

The Wirbelwind is the oldest version of the old Tamiya kit (bought it in 1973) - did some spackle-zimm and added styrene here and there. It's just finally completed in JAN 2011 and went to its first show...
