FREE Model Competition
It seems pretty clear now which the top three will be . . .
This has been a great competition.
Hey everyone, could use a few more votes so the Judges don't have to break any tie's. They had a tuff enough job picking the 5 out of 40.
not much time left, lets not have a tie for the judges to have to make final call.
OK it's done................
I had some people PM me their votes.......... so here are the Final Standing for the competition............ Congratulations to all that made the Final Five!
First Place................ 42 votes Steam Engine
Second Place ........... 30 votes Thunderbird 2
Third Place .............. 23 votes GeeBee
Forth Place .............. 18 votes Saturn 5 engine
Fifth Place ............... 17 votes Wicked Wench
With a special commendation for the Gundum
If all the winners would PM me their email address I'll contact all the donors and have the files send out.
I want to thank all who entered and the folks that "volunteered" (got drafted) to be judges........... they did an excellent job picking the final five and it was tough!
Thanks again to Yaniv for coming up with the idea in the first place and allowing me to help! (He's already working up a new competition........... but that will be in the future!)
Again Congratulations to the winners and to all that entered.........I learned allot and found some really great models I had missed!
Yaniv & john
Well done to the winner, not sure who you are. Trains arn't really my thing, but it looks very good.
Well done to everyone else who entered. I enjoyed this comp, I think it has upped the bar, this is going to be very hard to beat.
When I get home this afternoon, I'll post a picture and the builders names.............just ran out of time last night to do it and I wanted to let everyone know as soon as possible.............guess I sould have been thinking ahead:cry:
Thanks for running the competition...
I must say it was great fun to take part in this contest, and I am very happy to have been judged second place. Having seen the quality of all of the other entries, this is very flattering. I am sure the nostalgia of the subject material (Thunderbirds) had something to do with it (it certainly was the reason for my choice of the model:grin: ).
So thank you very much to John and Yaniv for organizing and running the contest, and thank you to the judges for your efforts. And thank you to those who generously provided the prizes. I now have an even taller pile of aircraft waiting to be built!
And finally, this was a FREE model competition, and is at least as much about the design of the models as the build, so thank you to all of those designers out there who have generously given us their hard work in the form of excellent free models.
CONGRATULATIONS to the winners -
all five of you! You were well worth the honour. Very fine modelling subjects and superbly built.
Enjoy your fine prizes now!
