Title: 1WGB - and the winner is......
Post by: kitbasher on April 21, 2015, 01:48:19 pm
Election Special: Conservatives win; Ed Milliput vows 'I'll be back'.

Weaver's BAS Weldon Snowcat (http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,40415.msg679176.html#msg679176) is first past the finishing post.  Congratulations Mr Weaver, a well-deserved winner. 👍👍

Actually well done to all who managed who finished their builds within the GB period, great work all round and potential Whiffie nominees. 👍🏿

Commiserations to those who couldn't finish in time: I do hope you all continue to post progress (I will be) and eventually show us your completed builds.

And finally, whether you participated in the GB or not, thanks to those who checked out the GB, in particular those who voted.

Well done Weaver, its an interesting and unusual vehicle, a smashing build and pretty damn good considering it was done in less than a week as you were also finishing off the Cuban Crisis FAA Skyhawk  :bow: :bow:

Must admit I'm waiting to see the overall diorama of the BAS Antarctic base, as that should be cracking with a range of interesting Whiffs to confound and confuse the unsuspecting public  ;D

Nice one - honor is well deserved.  :cheers:

And nice to see that a non-military "thing" made it!  :thumbsup:

And, yes, special applause to kitbasher for hosting the mayhem.  :bow:
It was a pleasure, looking forward to a revival in the future!

Yup many congratulations to Weaver. As Dizzy says it's nice to see a non military build (and not an aircraft either !) win   :bow:

Congratulations also to Jaybe for pushing Weaver hard and earning second and to Sandiego for his Jaguar grabbing the bronze  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

To be noted is that we also have a civil job in 4th - well done Bungle. I've build this kit and I can only admire your work

Well done to all, if you finished or not  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Kitbasher did a fantastic job so many thanks to him for organising it. Don't forget without this there would not have been a 1 Week GB

Finally. I'll be posting details of the next possible GB's tomorrow or Friday

Cheers Folks, and yes, thank you very much to Kitbasher for running the show, and congrats to Jaybee and Sadiego too.

Congrats Weaver, and glad to see there were no wardrobe malfunctions during your acceptance speech.

Didn't hear the rip as I bowed at the end then? Excellent......

I didn't take part in the GB due to time constraints, but it was great fun watching from the sidelines. So many great builds coming together in such a short timeframe  :bow:

I also watched this GB from the sidelines and it was fun! Congrats to the Weaver for the win and to everyone else who entered and also, thanks to Kitbasher for the whole event, if another one of these comes up, i'll join in for sure!
