I got Rob's OK to take the Camel, plus a few other models, to the annual Scale Model Exhibition held at the Shuttleworth Collection in Bedfordshire, UK.
I had no intention of entering any competitions there, so I must admit it came as a surprise that the judges had toured all of the displays and considered mine as 'Best of Show'.
The 'John Morris Memorial Trophy' has been going only since 2013 and I'm to be 'engraved' as they retain the trophy for display.
It's a polished Merlin piston on a wood base with winners plaques down one side.
I did receive a certificate and complimentary tickets to a Shuttleworth 'Collection Event air show during 2019.
