Response to Can a competitor see....

Noel,

I think that what you have suggested would be an excellent idea but I doubt it would ever happen.

Quite a few people have hit the nail on the head in this thread of the problems with Euromilitare as a whole. I didn't attend the show this year choosing instead to spend my money on a trip to Saumur back in June (where my French friends were also complaining about the judges at that show) and I think I made the right choice.

Earlier this week a few of us were in discussion with a clubmate (an excellent modeller) who attended this year and he told us of the talk amongst (other equally excellent) modellers at the show in relation to the judging. None of us were surprised - I heard the same thing from one of the judges (again a top modeller) who was disgusted by the behaviour of some of his fellow judges a couple of years ago, and I also heard Mirko's story about the guy who "always got gold" at the start of this thread.

Euromilitaire is meant to be one of - if not THE - premier military modelling shows in the world but to me it seems that year after year it gets worse with more and more controversy around the quality of the judging. No one is perfect but at least try and get it better. There has to be absolute integrity and open-ness if the show is to get back to what it was.

Medals etc should be awarded to those who deserve them for the quality of their model-making, accuracy, historical correctness, build quality, etc but not for the size of their egos, numbers of articles they have published in magazines or strategic posting of models on Constructive Comments!

Finally, it's interesting (to me anyway) that this only seems to affect the vehicle categories and doesn't seem to be so much of a problem amongst the figure modellers.

Regards,
Paul
