Thanks to all who voted and participated. I saw some really good work in this one, got a few good ideas and had some pretty good laughs as well!

I just wanted to say thanks to anyone who voted for mine.

I adored the steampunk Eagle, easily my fave piece. but a lot of good stuff this year. Well done to everyone who got something done. it was a great collection and so many different and inventive ideas.

I must be missing something, I'm not seeing anyone's names attached to them yet. Browser issue?

I did the ORCA, the "Buzz Bomb", the Æther Eagle, and the dio, "Never-Ending Battle".

Big thanks to John Lester, everyone who voted, and all of my competitors, who did such excellent work on their own entries. Their models, and the work, feedback, and advice of everyone who contributes to this site, is (and continues to be) an inspiration.

And ALvis, I really thought that VW Eagle was THE best work in this contest... That, and whoever did the Atomic V-6.

Thanks M3, but I have to disagree, the AEther Eagle was far better!
The Buzz Bomb had me laughing for ages, and the "Yellow Baron" caused my wife to come check on me, I was making funny little wheezing sounds I was laughing so hard.
Yes, I've got a thing for VW Vans! I had more fun making the "Hippie Huey" than the "VW 1999 Transporter". I wasn't sure if I should have entered the "Millenium Enterprise", as I didn't want mobs of torch bearing Sci-Fi modellers showing up at my door!
It was an awesome contest, loads of "out-of-the box" thinking went on. I enjoyed it all immensely

So the "Millenium Enterprise" was yours, too? Nice!

"First Lunar Outpost" was mine, but I was very impressed with the "Ares". (I hope whoever did that one sent a link to Stepen Baxter.) And "Hippy Huey" was great.
