And the Winner is...
« on: March 03, 2019, 02:25:17 am »
...me!
No, just kidding.   ;)

In third place we have Dizzyfugu with his ChADI 9-II скорость land speed rocket car.

In second comes 63cpe with the Black Widow race plane.

And in first <drum roll> it's Jailes with his Pond Racer II race plane.

Well done Jailes, 63cpe, Dizzyfugu and everyone who entered.  I enjoyed this GB.  It made a nice change.
Thanks also Chris and Jon.

Well done everybody who entered, a difficult choice for the voting.

Congratulations to Dizzy, 63cpe &, most especially, jalles for their awesome builds getting the recognition they deserved.

Congratulations! All three are worthy winners and many others would have won in a contest that wasn't so packed with outstanding entries. :thumbsup:

Well done all!
I believe I voted for the winners - and a couple of more that were a few pylons behind them.

MOST glorious!!!!! Congrats y'all!!!!!!   This was pretty fun, for sure. I didn't get as much done for it as I would have liked thanks to a huge pile of ongoing projects but I the ones I managed were a lot of fun and group builds are always neat.  :thumbsup:

Bloomin' amazing, and very interesting that both the two leaders had the Pond Racer as their prime influence too.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks to all the mods for putting this together! Considering the competition, with so many awesome builds, I'm super surprised with the win.  Like many, I was really enamoured with 63cpe's Black Widow.

Bloomin' amazing, and very interesting that both the two leaders had the Pond Racer as their prime influence too.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

There's something about the Pond Racer, while it's an unusual design it just looks "right" to me.

Amazing and inspiring entries all.  Another well deserved win for jalles, but 63cpe really made a fight of it.
Thanks!

Congratulations to the winners. And clearly a winning GB topic. We'll have to keep this in mind for the future.

Thanks a lot, and congratulations to Jalles for that lovely build - a worthy winner!

Nevertheless, so many good/creative/weird contributions, great to see so many competitors and wide range of ideas and interpretations!  :thumbsup:

i'd like to thank Zenrat for organizing this GB. It was a great success!

I also like to congratulate Jalles for winning this edition, Dizzyfugu for taking third prize and also congratulate every entrant for making this GB as good as it was is. Top Notch!
Definitely enjoyed myself!

There should be a rerun of this GB in the near future to take revenge....after all it is a competition, right?! albeit with a wink ;)

Cheers!

Thanks Dave.  Not just me though.  Chris and Jon were also mods and did just as much organisation.
