Title: The 2017 One Week Build - THE POLL
Post by: kitbasher on June 06, 2017, 01:13:39 pm
Right then playmates.  The UK is at the peak of Fevered General Election Frenzy so what better time than now to launch the vote that REALLY matters!

Three votes each and it's a secret ballot, use your votes wisely and we'll get the result we all deserve.  Speaking of results there's seven days in which to vote, at which point the results will, courtesy of the wonders of the age and the magic of the tinterweb, suddenly appear.  I can smell the tension already.

Actually it seems cruel to choose.  Brilliant builds all round (and yes let's count the drawing as a build) and it still confounds me how folk produce such good models in such a short time.  For my part - epic failure to resurrect an unfinished build from two 1WGBs ago.  Just how lame is that?

Good luck to everyone.

Again, too many fine models to want to pick just three! Well done, all the participants. :bow:

Am I the only one who doesn't see the Nakajima Ki-44 Shoki-Kai (http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,43802.0.html) by Librarian in the list? :rolleyes:
Was this model not finished or is there another reason for not including it? Or is it there and I can't see it for whatever reason?

Can I suggest that when you do this that you add a link to the finished builds thread?

Apologies to the four who missed out in the coin-tossing competition. :banghead:

Same here, i had go from all boxes checked and then start cutting down... it was hard to choose, although i had a couple of favorites... doesn't make one feel good to choose only a few out of so many good builds. :bow:

And with the vote now closed, it is.....a tie between jalles' MiG-23 MLGD and Weaver's Sapphire Sabre.

Well done both.  Well done everyone in fact.

Only 50ish weeks to go to 1WGB18!

Post by: Weaver on June 13, 2017, 04:19:23 pm
WOW -  thank you very much everybody and thank you to Kitbasher for running the GB so smoothly.  :thumbsup:

Have to say that in my opinion, Jalles' MiG-23 MLGD is clearly the better model (I voted for it!): he put more work into his conversion and his paint quality knocks mine into a cocked hat. Well done Sir!  :thumbsup:

That's the first, and so far only, 1 Week GB I've ever contested, and amazingly I found it good fun. Thanks for running it Dave, grand job there, and well done the joint winners too.  :thumbsup:

I'm pleased to say that I voted for one of them too, so my judgement doesn't seem to have been dulled by my advanced age.  ;D

I have to second Weaver's comments, thanks to everybody and a big shout out to Kitbasher for moderating the group build!

First, thanks for the kind words, second don't sell your efforts short.  I thought your entry was fantastic, I was really impressed with your bevel job to fit the thicker wings (I thought your paint quatlity was great too).

That said, I think all the entries were pretty awesome  :thumbsup:

MAD fun, this was! I'm already looking forward to the next one. Congrats to the winners... wow..  I'm impressed all to hell and back by the quality of builds that can be produced in just 7 days. Says a lot about the skills of the membership.  Thanks to the ones that voted for mine, I appreciate it! I like it, too.  LOL!   ;D ;D :lol:

Congratulations to the winners and to all the participants in this speedy-GB!
Many thanks to all who voted for my creation! :thumbsup:
This was my first model after a long break after I broke my wrist in August 2016. I was thinking it should be an easy task...It wasn't.
I already started some alterations and additions - stay tuned for more.
In the meantime I could obtain a long desired artifact from a local flea-market: an old and slightly damaged postcard, but signed!!! by one of the top-gun pilots of M.A.R.C. Z-360 Uberloytnant Amee Di Moona :wub: :wub: :wub:.
I'm happy to share it with all of you:

Guess my judgement is spot on!! Congratulations to Weaver and Jalles for the win, voted for both of them!
But the fact is that the congrats are for everyone, great work by everyone in such a short time! :bow:
Now what i didn't expect was to get the third place... :o Thank you all for the votes, but also, for the inspiration you give me with all of your work, gentlemen!
And obviously, a big thank you to Kitbasher for running the whole show! Excellent stuff! :bow: :bow:

I was travelling all day today, so I must be the last to comment.  <_<
May I second Kit's post, as it express exactly my feelings? And I even managed to complete my build!  ;D And a special thank you to the misguided souls that voted for my build.  ;D
