Voted &, really, this was one of the hardest ever! I voted way outside my comfort zones, too. :o

Can I suggest that you add a link to the finished build thread to the first post in this one?

Oh that was hard. So hard that I tried to sneak 3 votes in, but even as a Moderator extraordinaire it wouldn't let me  :angel:

Great builds, and a not-so-hard choice this time, at least for me.  :angel:

Many thanks for setting this all up!  :thumbsup:

The top six are all pretty close.

I have a hunch I know what's going to come away with 1st, although there's no clear lead, but 2nd is well up for grabs! :thumbsup:

It's nice to see a XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XX model leading the voting.

I really don't think we should be dropping hints about the type of entry that is in the lead before voting closes.  Perfectly fine to say we "have a leader", or" it's close", but perhaps not mention the type of build- that could give things away and influence those of us that have not yet voted.   

Well done everyone and to the mods! Great variety and creativity on display!

Ooops.  Yes.  You are correct Dave.
Sorry.

I shall redact my post.

Kit, can you do the same where you quoted me.

Only one vote between 1st & 2nd, which have pulled away from the tie in 3rd! :thumbsup:

The end of the build snuck up on us a bit, but it was a close run thing at the end.

Brad's four engined Caravelle JUST pipped Dave's four engined B-47 by one vote, with Dizzy's Me-309T only trailing by another two!

It really was a difficult decision, at the end of the day I really struggled to get from 3 choices to 2  :banghead:

Congratulations to the winner(s).
Adding scores coming from a same modeller gives a different first, I think the concerned one have noticed that, while the rule was decided before voting.
