This set here is my favorite, it was for the spring contest two years ago:



It was a very large diorama, well until one of my cats found it......

Oh yeah he did, it was in pieces afterwards.  Godzilla, and Mothra survived.   The castle is in four pieces and King Gidorah is missing two of his three heads.   The base for the diorama was ruined.  I can fix the castle and King Gidorah, but the base will have to be rebuilt.  It broke up too much in the fall.   I had it on a book case about 4 ft or a bit over 1.3 meters off of the ground.   Cat knocked it right off of the book case.

John if its the kitty that knows how to open the lid to the toys and pick a toy out without getting hurt you gotta be easy with it man ha ha.  Any cat that can do that is worthy of a slip up now and then ha ha  ;D

Man I love my cat but if it had done that to an award winning model of mine it would be sleeping outside for a month.I would have liked to see the cat prowling through the kit in slow motion like a huge monster though lol

My favorite model in my collection?
It's one of two:
The newly finished USS Odysseus, NCC-1978-A


Or the 1/537 version I did of her predecessor, USS Odysseus, NCC-1978

I would have loved to see it too, but at the time I was sleeping.   Well I was until the very loud crash.....

Quaralane, I like the finish to the Odysseus!

My spring contest entry from last year has definitely been my favorite model on the shelf. The Ma.K Hornisse from Wave.
