Hi Ray and Captain Blood , thanks for the kind words . I'm happy to get the number of votes that I have gained . I myself know of the things wrong with the build which I think others won't see .
I would not have built the APC without this contest and it gives me a reason to use some neglected models who I bought to do an Aliens type game years ago . So its really a win/win situation for me . lol

The only problem is I'm desperately trying to finish my Future Wars project so I can start my Vietnam one which a mate keeps nagging me about . ;) I'd like to do a Demo with it so I need to start it soon .
I spent most of Friday laying out some templates and arranging pipes and walkways etc but stopped myself buying the tiles I'm going to make the floor plan with . :'(

This is the essence of the contest.  Whilst there will be a "winner" of the contest, hopefully everyone that takes part is a winner as they will have built (or nearly built) something they might not have done otherwise.  Everyone else gains by being inspired by other peoples projects and seeing how people use different techniques and materials.
A win all round.  :D

The first round is now over and 8 entries progress to the final.

Voting will end at 1159 hours on 20th December.
Good luck in trying to pick just two to vote for.  ???

A big thank you to all those that took part in the first round.   :D

BTW my comments were meant tongue-in-cheek in-case anyone was wondering .
I may give up trying to master the intricies of Irony in future  :-[
What are we going to build next? lol
