Yes, you read that correctly.   ;D :icon_fsm:

Thanks very much to everyone who took part, great stuff.  :smiley:

Because it's not really a competition and 'tis all in fun, so no need to determine the best.  :icon_fsm:

If you really like something, if it's your favourite, then let the creator know directly.  :icon_fsm:

I tend to take the opposite view, creations are submitted within a time frame and chosen by public vote. To me that is part of the fun.

But I'm not going to start a flame war on BTS,

You are the Moderator, your rules.

For what its worth, the competition was pretty hi-quality and difficult to choose, but for me it was a toss up between Brian's Vultee Varsity and Nil's Baby Electra

To put it another way, everyone was a winner because they participated.  I tend to take the view that a Group Build is like a bunch of guys sitting around when one says "I'm going to build something like this...", another chimes in and says "Hey, that's a cool idea, I'm going to do something similar", then another "me too" etc, etc....  The goal with the group builds is to generate interests in builds with a common inspiration and to do so maybe in a form of friendly light competition.   The goal is the fun/building (including writing/drawing etc) not the winning.

We also allow our group build moderators to be fairly loose in how they set things up and run their group builds.  There is only one set rule "Have fun!".

Now if someone wants a poll in one GB, then fine, do so.  If someone other than a moderator wants to set one up then you can do so (think of it along the lines of asking "Hey guys, these were all great.  Which was your favourite?").

Well I definitely had some fun with my project even though I wasn't able to complete it. Overcoming some obstacles was rewarding and I'm very pleased with the outcome so far.

Still looking forward to seeing that one finished kitnut.!

Take your point GTX,  no worries,  I happen to like the poll at the end its part of the fun for me,  hence the disappointment.

However it's not going to put me off doing group builds, they are a fun way of kit bashing and gets the brain working
