Top Honors Won - Derek Brown Model
The hand built 1945 model by Derek Brown, of Denver, Colorado, beat out more than 1,000 entries at the 1998 meet of the "International Plastic Modeler's Society" (IPMS).
To bring out the details, Derek had to use lighting that presents some exterior color as gray instead of dark blue Measure 21.
