I think the first image in the poll has gone missing.

Thanks for letting me know, did the link take you to the image?  That happens for me.
Had a lot of trouble sorting out that particular image - initially I could only see it on my smartphone but after some work it was also visible on my PC.  Don't know why it has gone, will look to fix it later today.

Tophe apologies for this, don't know what has gone wrong.

The link does take me to the correct post in the "Finished Models" thread.

Many thanks.  That's what I used.  Odd.

Post by: kitbasher on June 22, 2021, 09:23:19 AM
Well that's odd.  Was about to fix the missing pic of Tophe's design and for some reason it's back!

Title: Re: The 2020 1-Week GB VOTE OPEN
Post by: kitbasher on June 22, 2021, 12:16:01 PM
And it's gone again.

EDIT (21:50) - And now it's back - on my laptop but not my iPhone.  What's doubly odd is that mu phone is showing a copy of Tophe's design in perttime's reply #3 but there's no image showing in the same post when looking at it on my lappy!  Aaaarrrggh!  :banghead:

EDIT 2 (23 June @ 1021) - Thanks to Tophe (:thumbsup:) I think the issue is now resolved.  I can see the image on multiple devices, so hopefully that's the end of the faffing about.  Tremendous support for the poll - many thanks to all who have voted so far.

Post by: kitbasher on June 28, 2021, 03:19:10 PM
So, the vote is closed.  I'd like to thank all who have supported this year's one-weeker - those who took the plunge kit- and drawing-wise, those who supported the builds and the various discussions and of course those who voted.   :thumbsup:

Excellent submissions all, and let's hope we get to see finished at some point in the future those that couldn't make the deadline.   :thumbsup:

Congratulations though to AeroplaneDriver for providing us with his Hawker Hunter F.11.  Great model making that was appreciated by a sizeable majority of the electorate.   :thumbsup:

Here's to 1WGB22!

Well....6 hours and no responses...so I guess I will awkwardly be first and say...Thanks everyone...

Some great builds this year. Honestly thought one of the scratchbuilds would leave me in the dust.

Well done, Nick! The Hunter F.11 is a worthy winner!  :bow: :bow: :party:

Also, well done to runner-up, NARSES2, for his Piaggio P.115 Martello! :bow: :bow: :drink:

And equal 3rd Placers, Caveman & CANSO, for their Gloster CXP-1001 & M.A.D. C.A.T., respectively! :bow: :cheers:

As usual, a difficult choice for votes as the overall quality was ridiculously high! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks again for the votes chaps!  I personally thought Chris's Piaggo was amazing but surprised that CANSO's sci-fi scratchbuild didn't run away with it. Great stuff from everyone yet again, but part credit for my build has to go to Colin for his incredible Hunter resin. 

Now on to some Recce fun!

Thanks to those who organized the GB, kudos to all participants and congratulations to the winner! :thumbsup:
As always it was exiting and challenging to finish a good looking model in a week.
I believe this was my swan song as well.
Keep modeling and stay safe everybody!
Cheers!

Just realised I never posted on this - my excuse is that i was in hospital, but I've been  out five days... :rolleyes:

Anyway - congratulations to the winners and thanks to the mods. :thumbsup:

Aeroplanedriver's Hunter is gorgeous and was the thing I voted for immediately, before even starting to consider what to do with my other votes.
