"To get gold is not ONLY talent...you need to sell yourself and your product, knowing the right "people"..its a buissnes and not for senstive artists anymore".
With Reference to your comment above I dont think I adhere to this rule, it is not my business but merely a hobby which the subject I model I am very passionate about. I entered an Afghan T-54 this year and was awarded a Gold medal for my efforts, I dont belong to any "club", use any fancy products, although I am guilty of posting models on the internet...maybe not specifically as you suggest 1 or 2 weeks before the competition. Actually this year I did not post any images of the model anywhere on the net. Over the past few years I have had several articles published in various magazines, and in no way do I think this has influenced any decisions judges may have had in awarding me a Gold this year. I would like to think it was purely down to the attention to detail in the research, build and finish of the model.
A thanks must go to you Mirko for your entries all those years ago, as the class 13 as we know it now [be that good or bad?] would not exist at all in its present form. I hope in no way you take any offence to my comments and continue to post on Missing Lynx. I felt very proud to receive such an accolade at such a prestigious event as Euro Militaire.
