All of the entries were shown at the event, giving the attendees and judges a chance to appreciate all of the excellent SketchUp work that has been going on in Letchworth over the past few months!
Brian, as well as the other judges, was impressed with Jenny’s model because ‘’it showed an outstanding attention to detail and the quality of both the model and the photography used stood out even amongst the <em>professional</em> modellers who took part in the competition.’’
Earthware would like to pass on a huge ‘thank you’ to John Webb, the competition organiser. John ran the competition with sheer enthusiasm from day one and we are certain that it never would have received the entries or coverage that it did, without him behind the driving wheel; congratulations and thank you John!
