    Excellent Cardmodels!!!

    Fabulous contest!!! AND I even found a download I had not previously seen!!!
    (Thunderbirds) Pretty amazing considering the internet scouring I have done.

    I wanted to enter but every model I tried to build with the intention to enter ended up as confetti.

    Besides...I cannot bring myself to build ANYTHING origional size...not anymore.

    In my book, you ALL are winners!!!

    Congratulations to the Final Five winners..................

    Everyone really did a wonderful job with the entries and we had a hard time with our selections................

    Please look at the new post to pick the ranking for the Final Five and only vote 1 time please.

    Sorry I was not able to figure out a poll thing so just ignore that for the moment:oops:

    I have enjoyed this thread quite a bit and want to thank all of the entrants for their hard work............

    Thanks guys.................. and have fun with the New Free Model competition, I look forward to all those enteries too!

    Just a thought for a "new" contest. I know it was hard enough to pick the final 5, but how about this; seperate the remaining entries into their respective categories (Real space, Sci-Fi, Aircraft, ships, etc..), and pick the best in each category.

    Good idea............. but to be truthful, I'm kinda tired and want to relax for a bit:grin:

    I am really excited about all the interest this generated and judging(no pun) by the already going on new competition, hopefully others will pick up the torch and do some more competitions! Let's see what's instore with the new year.

    I was really overwelmed by both the responses from the entrants and the great people who donated prizes, both dealers and members. We do have a great bunch of people involved with this hobby.

    I'm sure that someone will kick off another competition, I just hope I can help make it work better.

    I have an idea or two for future competitions - looks like we have enough to keep us busy for now though! although the second freebie build one is out for me - have too many non free builds on my plate ;)

    Thanks Phil............

    I know what you mean............ I have "Builder Block" right now. All I can make are really neat paper balls:oops:

    If someone was running a "botched builds" thread, I would singlehandedly fill the thread!

    "Botched Build thread: everybody hack their model to pieces, whichever model looks furthest from trash wins!" you have a pattern for your paper balls??? LOL

    A BIG thanks to Yaniv and John for coordinating and running this, and the judges for their difficult job. It's been fun, but it was a big job for them as well. And certainly thanks to all the very generous vendors!
