I couldn't choose between five so I wrote them down with a corresponding number, then rolled a dice....Sod's Law that six came up first ;D

Voted!  Great to see so many entries.  Thanks to the instigators and mods for bringing the Group Builds back!  I really think that the the formula of three GB's per year, with a clear schedule of when they will be, no  overlap, a theme and 90 days each is about perfect.

I join my thanks, using Dave's well chosen words! I am a lazy bum.  :rolleyes:
Really a difficult choice among so many interesting and crazy ideas and beautiful builds.

Well done to Sandiego and everyone else who took place.  I've really enjoyed modding this GB and I've been impressed by the quality of the builds, and sheer number of participants and finshed models.

Size does count then? ;D
Well done Dave.  You deserve it for size alone but as you also did a great job it's doubly fitting.

Congratulations - well deserved.  :thumbsup:

I could not build such a beast, no idea where to put it later...  ;)

Anyway, I am also very happy about the third place and the resonance of the converted Marauder. Thanks a lot!  :cheers:

Thank you all so much, I really enjoyed the camaraderie on this group build.  It was really neat to see the revitalization of the GB's with so many great entries, mutual encouragement and the spirit of what makes this a special site.  Well done to all.   I am indeed humbled and happy that the B-36 "Peacemaker" making things un-peaceful for those pesky locusts was appreciated. ;)  

Thank you again.
