Well, what a weekend.... I won a silver medal at the World Model Expo 2022 with my An-225:D!!

One of the 5 silver medals. I'm very proud, never thought this would happen!

 

This is the transport box:

I copied the drawing on the kit box and enlarged it several times:

This looks better than the 'coffin' it was first.

 

Saturday morning I arrived at the WME and placed my model on the table.

And there it stayed until sunday.

When I arrived back at the show sunday morning, I saw nothing of a note with 'Congratulations! You've won a medal.' orsomething.

That's what I already thought.

 

So I waited until 3 in the afternoon, the award ceremony started and I packed my Antonov back in it's transport box.

I was watching the ceremony, a lot of people gathered together in a hall so very crowded. 

I stood somewhere in the back, watching all the names and models on the big screen and a lot of applause for everybody.

 

Suddenly...

The category 'Aircraft' was announced.

5 Bronze winners, everybody cheering and the 5 came onto the stage to receive there medals.

After that 5 silver winners... and I was completely shocked to see my name + model: Antonov 225 on the screen:o!! I won a silver medal!!

So I tried to get to the stage but there were a lot of people in front of me.

So I reached the stage after 3 minutes, and at that time they were cheering for the gold medal winners.

I missed the official photo but here it is....

 

My silver medal, yess!!

So, this is it.

I don't care what I maybe will win in a future contest.

To win something at the WME is for me the ultimate victory. And a good end to a 2 year build. 

Yess!!

Congratulations on winning the silver medal, always nice to win something when you put a model in a competition, but as they say it’s the taking part that counts

@AdrianMF @Serkan Sen @Mike @kev67 + everyone who liked : Thank you gentlemen ! 

 

I feel a bit ‘empty’ now the Antonov project is finished.. 
I’m thinking to pick up my 1:72 Boeing 747 SCA project (which was on hold) again.

So whatever my next project will be, another ‘big one’ is coming for sure :wicked:

@iaf-man: Hi iaf-man!

No, this is not the AIM kit.

This is an old 1:72 Skyland B-747 Qantas desktopmodel which I’m converting into a B747 SCA.

I once started a topic on Britmodeller about this project a few years ago but due to some set backs it’s on hold.

 


I have the Modelsvit Tu-144 and IL-86 in my stash also:

But I don’t know if I will ever have the time to build these. 

Too many kits to build..
