48 voting hours to go, me hearties, your GB Poll Needs YOU!

Thereís two pelotons of plastic (and Electronic pen and ink, of course) - but who will break out of these?  Well thatís down to the electorate, so vote now, vote wisely.

The 2020 1-Week GB Vote - RESULTS
« Reply #34 on: July 08, 2020, 01:52:34 am »
Well then, as the returning officer for the 2020 One Week GB Poll I can announce the following results.

But first I would like to thank all of the participants for their excellent submissions, and to the electorate for exercising their democratic right to vote.

Anyway, back to the results.

In third place we have Zenrat and his mad Farley Fairey Penguin]

In second place, with his Swiss Rafale (which, frankly, is prettier than a real Rafale) is AeroplaneDriver.

Which just leaves first place, which goes to PR19_Kitís Gloster Lance.

Well done Kit, second GB win on the trot.  I still think it cries out for Canadian markings!

Well done everyone and thank you Kitbasher and Chris.

Strewth, now I really AM embarrassed.  :unsure: :unsure:

Thanks for all the votes and thanks for the nerve wracking vote procedure, as well as running the whole show Dave.  :thumbsup:

I've got two more T3s and one more F-89 at home, so you may get the Canadian Lance yet.  ;D

This may sound odd, but I donít see it working so well with anything other than a T3.  Itís the canopy.

I chose the T3 to start with because of its longer nose, the FAWs have their cockpit hunched back between the intakes and look as if they've run into something.  :-\

Having said that, I've got 2-3 FAW9s as well.....
