Far too many good builds ... So, I changed my criteria & voted for ideas worthy of further exploration.


No, I'm not saying what they were 'coz I may be wanting to further explore them later. :P

Okay, the voting is now closed, and the very worthy winner is (drum roll.....) :

sandiego89's  Ice Station Delta

And very well deserved it is too: that was great concept, very well executed.  :thumbsup:

Runner up was Dizzyfugu's Cheetah GR.2 Another worthy build.

Thanks very much to everyone who took part, everyone who voted, my fellow moderator crudebuteffective and to NARSES2 for help and guidance. This was great turnout with a superb standard and variety of entries. Well done to you all!  :thumbsup:

Congratulations to Sandiego89, who really caught the Colf War's ideas and visions in this neat diorama scene. Well deserved!

And I am surprised that my Cheetah GR.2 made it onto the podium - thanks a lot!

Anyway, also many thanks to Weaver for setting this whole thing up - and everyone who took part in the GB. Lots of great ideas and designs, IMHO, and this time a very tough decision to place those (only) three votes. But having five or more would not have made things better...  ;)

Congratulations to the winner, and to all the other "builders".. A very interesting and varied GB.
And I'd like to I add my thanks to Weaver and the mods for the organization.

Excellent, a super model, well executed and equally well thought out in the first place.  :thumbsup: :bow:

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thank you all, I am glad that "Ice Station Delta" was well received!  It may have caused a change in my eye glass prescription  ;D

A big shout out to the organizers and moderators, and to all the builders- it was great to see so many contributors. 

Thank you again, Dave.

Well done to the winner and the other builders. We gave ourselves a real headache in deciding what to vote for.
