The Vote (at last !)
« on: July 01, 2009, 08:23:55 am »
So after much delay - which I have apologised for previously - here is (finally) the poll for the winner of the Trainers with Teeth/CoIn Group build. Hopefully my fellow moderator Jeremy is able to read this, and I hope his lack of contact is solely due to 'technical' probs or similar and not as result of anyhing too serious: If you are reading this, Jer, get in touch soon, OK ?.

Well this is the second GB I've 'modded' and it the quality of modelling shown here has been simply tremendous, so to all those of you who took-part, thanks guys and give yourselves a collective RoA (Round of Applause). As always I would have liked to have seen more entries & variety - all aircraft again - but I guess that simply reflects what the folks who entered this particular GB, regularly build. Interesting that this time around, almost all the entries were to 1:72 scale..... even mine  :o, perhaps this is the scale of the future after all  :blink:

So over to you lot, thanks once-again to the builders for entering and thanks in advance to all here who take the time and effort to vote. I've limited the votes to just one per person and just for a change, we're not going to see the cumaltive during the three-weeks the poll is open. Closing date is 22nd July, so we've got three weeks to register our opinions.

Gawd - I had to review the Finished Projects thread to remember what I put in for this, never mind anyone else.... ;D

Hard decision - about 5 possible winners that were very hard to separate.

Neo: Even false things?

Neo: How can that be?

Picking a favorite was difficult indeed. Having so many entries of such high quality sets the bar very high.

Thank you Ian and Jeremy for leading this GB and for all the other participants for making this fun and inspirational!

Ha ha, the vote wasn't tough for me.  I love the Terrier.  What a nice build.

This may sound strange, but I just built mine for fun, not for judging exactly.  Was fun to build them, now I gotta plan a new whif......what am I saying, I already have one planned.

Doesn't matter who wins to me, as long as everyone else had fun like me!

Well done Ed, congratulations.  And like BdB says, I too found it tough to vote just for one, great builds by everyone.
