  1. Wow, those are great! I can’t believe how detailed some of those are, that would take so much time and effort, and most of all, talent! I think lot’s of those are very deserving of a reward.
    On a side note, your spam filter should probably not care about case if it doesn’t specify. “a” should work just as well as “A” I would think.

  2. There’s something I don’t get. Check this out:
    The question is, why the rest of the models have been hidden?
    Same thing with Zielona Góra.

  3. Athinaios says:

    The thing with hidden models is that both Toruń and Zielona Góra were participating in the previous edition of the competition as well, so the videos are showing only those models that were included in the new collections for MYT2012. Anyway, it looks a bit odd and that misleads people -I’ve heard some people saying “why they didn’t make this or that, why this site is empty while around there are models?”-they did, but it’s not shown on videos, fortunately in GE it looks way better.
