All of the entrants deserve certificates of excellence.    The placed items are even more excellent.

Thanks Mods.

One of the best GB in my memory. Heartfelt congratulations to everybody.
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

We'd like to thank Zenrat too, for his description of how he did the 'In the Navy' Poll with the built-in thumbnails of the models.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'd recommend that it become a GB standard as it works so well.

Well done everybody and congratulations to the winners. That's produced a really good selection of models.

Are you sure you didn't  vote yet?
I see the titles of my choices in bold.

As you said, the choices were highlighted, i didn't notice that detail and somehow, i have almost no memory of voting... :banghead:
So much on my mind lately that my brain seems to have discarded the memory of voting on this one... :unsure: Anyway, congrats to all the participants for another GB with excellent models.  :thumbsup:

Oh wow! I was very surprised and humbled that the XB-58 was so well received.  Thank you so much for the kind words.

A special thanks Chris for his tireless work in keeping these GB's going, to the moderators, and my fellow Whiffers!  I had some doubts about this GB theme, but the spirt came through!!
