REVELL GERMANY ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF SCALE 2010 COMPETITION
Revell’s annual scale-fest winners were announced this week. Model maker Joachim Balkenhol won the 2010 contest with his 1:96 scale clipper ship Thermopylae, which took him more than two years to build. The kit’s basis was another Revell ship, the Pedro Nunes, a vessel named after the Portuguese mathematician and pioneer of modern navigation methods. Joachim’s conversion mods included a full set of paper sails, and rigging that used up a staggering 160 m (525 ft) of fine twine. Amazing stuff.
Here are the other winners:
Patrick Simon (Bucket Wheel).
Ingo Hartmann (USS United States).
Karsten Schmidt (Ford Cabrio).
Fabian Schulz (Ford Rat Rod).
Andreas Dyck (P-51D).
Michael Sabusch (Kanonenjagdpanzer).
Thomas Plösser (Canadair CL-13B Sabre).
Peter Hofstetter (Diesel locomotive).
Thorsten Hofmann (Junkers Ju-88 A-1).
There was a mixed jury, consisting of:
Helge Schling, Berthold Tack (Modell Fan magazine).
Volker Helms (DPMV and IPMS, Germany).
Karl-Heinz Dué, Franz-Josef Heckmann (German model building club).
Ullrich Taubert, Volker Vahle, Holger Eidberger (Revell-Germany).
