2020 Group Build Poll

Ok folks,  time to vote on which Group Builds you would like to see in 2020.  I have put up all the suggestions proposed in the last 12mths.  See here for more info on each - starting at about Reply#436.  Also feel free to ask.  Please note that I may have merged a couple given they had similar or overlapping themes.

Poll will run for 2wks.  Each member gets 5 votes and you are able to change your mind if you so desire (e.g. to help whittle down the results if you see your preferred is not going anywhere).  Campaigning to get your favourites picked is allowed.

Plan is to have the first new GB start no later than 1st Feb 2020.

It's a shame because the total membership must be in the hundreds, the voting for the current group build is also disappointing

Only two I voted for are among the top vote getters, that's fairly normal.  Shame I can't vote "Chicago Style" (early and often).

So, Sci-Fi GB (18 votes) and Firefighting GB (15 votes) placed #1 and #2, but there are several candidates for #3, with Civil Transport GB, Invasion of Japan/Japan ‘46 GB, Helicopters & autogyros GB and Scaleorama GB getting 13 votes each. Looks like there will have to be another round of votin'.  ;D

Just some ideas:

Crazy paint schemes GB has 9 votes, Paint it Pink and Paint it Black each have 3. Combined 15 possible? Merge for second vote?

Civil Transport, Swords into Plowshares (8 votes) and VIP/Ambulance (5 votes) could form a Civil GB? Then again, Ambulance could also be part of Firefighting.
Unarmed (4votes) could include civilian models, but military ones just as well (recce, transport....), so I guess it wouldn't have to be merged with a civilian topic.

Cheers,
Moritz
