OK, now that all the hard work is done and dusted it's time for The Poll.

The Moderators have to arrange all that of course, but as neither of us has done it before it's not going to be the work of moments. Hang in there and we'll post it as soon as we can.

Hehehe, is that the one where you have one week to finish of one of the models that you DIDN'T finish in previous GBs?  ;D :lol:

Now that is a great idea!  Could it be the theme for 2016's 1 Week GB??  Participants need to declare their part build the week before, providing a link to the build at the time that particular GB ended.  Has to be something that was in a previous GB.

No probs mate, if you need any help let me know. Best thing is to "pin" it so that it doesn't slide of the page

Ah right, thanks.

Not exactly obvious, is it?

After a quick count-up there's no less than SIXTY THREE models in this GB!  :o :o

The Poll page could be rather lengthy...........

Other than Dizzyfugu who are the other three ?


As part of my work creation for other people why not have a preliminary poll say Axis, Allies and, dare I say, Dizzy with the top two from each going in to a final vote off. Lots of work for you guys four polls but lots of fun for us (and it is Christmas)

I'm still feeling my way on this, and that complex a poll may be more than I can handle Bungle, sorry.

Interesting idea but I think it's best if we think about that for now. Not sure about the practicalities myself. One of which, which sounds daft I know, is sustaining interest of the extended voting period.

I'll put in in the "pending pile" in my brain as it's one we could use to have a winner in individual sections - aircraft (civil, military) ship etc and then an overall winner. However as said needs some thought

I vote only one category, with 2 (maybe 3?) votes per member due to the great number and quality of the entries. One week voting period.  

Coming up with categories after the build has closed is "changing the goal posts".  I recognize that that there are some great variations and lots of entries, and there is a desire to reward folks in different catergories, but if I had known there were going to be different categories for axis, allied, land, ship, etc. I may have built something else.  I had ideas for a UK ship and a UK land vehicle, but ended up only building a Axis (air)ship.

I do like the numerous categories for the annual whiffies- not so much for a GB.  

my 2 cents, but as always I defer to the mods, and thanks for their great work  :thumbsup:- Dave

I'm thinking more on the lines of 4 votes each, there's over sixty models to chose from, though some may be inelligable as they have no names and therefore can't be identified.
