Thanks guys, but to be honest, it was not about winning or loosing for me. I even did not much with the scratch build terrain, only two trees who were on a nice ice-cream and one little rock out of the garden. You could have disqualified me here on this duel! :oops:
Maurice did much more work on his little dio, and the figures he painted are very well done. You call it ducks Paul, I call it swans. I loved that part also very much :love: Well done Maurice and I give you my victory, you followed the rules :thumbup:

And I'm in for a rematch ;-)

Actually it wasn't that much work, the base took me about a day all together, the figures another day, but that spread out over 3 or 4 weeks time.

The birds are supposed to be swans, but they look like ducks :mrgreen: the whole scene was sort of inspired by Lohengrin the Swan Knight, although the maiden in distress is missing as is the boat Lohengrin is supposed to appear in.

Peter won fair, even if he forgot to build a scratch build structure. And a rematch, not right now, maybe in a couple of weeks or so :)
