Tara, tara, tarupmph - we have some winners !
« on: September 27, 2016, 06:36:14 am »
Well it was a fantastic GB with some equally fantastic creations. So well done to all those who took part but by the very nature of the thing someone has to be voted top of the pile. No prizes just the honour of being voted for by your peers  :thumbsup:

It was very difficult and very close with people running neck and neck to almost the last moment.

So congratulations to -

In Profiles, Weaver for his Ultimate Type 42

In the kits -

First : Old Wombat's Seaspray
Equal Second : Dizzy's Folland Fo 50
and   : Old Wombat - again  :bow: - F6F-3 Hellcat

As we have an tie for second I've decided no third (also there were 3 of you  :angel:)

So very well done to everyone who took part  :thumbsup:

Chris

Woh! :o


Congratulations to Weaver & Dizzy! Great profile & a great build amongst a ridiculous number of great builds! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I was watching & hoping but I wasn't expecting.

A massive, heartfelt "Thank you!" to everyone who voted for the Spyray (Seaspray? Really? ;) ) & the Hellcat. Seriously! It's a real buzz! :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

And thanks & congratulations to Chris for moderating such a successful GB! :bow: :thumbsup: :cheers:


(PS: I think Dizzy did himself out of a clean sweep by having too many great builds in the GB & diluting his votes. Kudos, mate! :thumbsup: )

Congrats, folks!!!   I nearly missed voting on this. I'm still finding my way around.  LOL


But, I did find my way here and it was really fun to sit down for a couple of hours and look through everything. I hadn't seen most of it so that was fun to do that and go through and compile and sort things.

It was rough... so hard to choose from all this nice stuff...it wasn't easy voting!

Well done the winners and indeed all the entrants - there were so many fine efforts to choose from. A very creative GB - thanks for organising it, moderators. :thumbsup:

Gosh, thanks very much! I nearly didn't enter at all!  :thumbsup:

There were loads of entries in this one and all to a very high standard, so well done to Old Wombat and Dizzy. :thumbsup:

Thanks also to NARSES2 for moderating to his usual high standard. :thumbsup:

I'm always a little dubious of accepting credit for a shipbucket profile since the basic artwork was drawn by somebody else (I'd never have the patience) and all I did was modify it, so can we please also have a round of applause for 'Hood' who drew the basic Type 42 profile, 'Gunship', 'MihoshicK' and 'Bezobrazov' who drew other profiles that I used for inspirations/comparisons/parts-donors, and 'K.W.Vestergaard' who drew the gorgeous coat of arms?

Not only did I miss out on winning, I missed out on voting! Arg!

Congrats to Ye Olde Wombate and Dizzy! Bravo!

Well done to both those who won and those who entered and many thanks to old whatsisname who moderated it.

OMG, three days offline, and first thing I find is that the tiny Folland flying boat is on the winners' rostrum!  :lol:

I did not expect that push, it looked good for third place or so - but that comes unexpected!! :party:

Congratulations to Old Wombat, too, everyone who voted, and - more important - everyone who took part in the GB (so much good stuff, giving three votes was tough, but five or more would not have made it easier...), as well as for the moderation and voting effort behind the scenes! Highly appreciated!  :bow:
