Hey Ghost, can I submit an ornament that requires slight assembly upon receipt? About as complex as sliding a couple of cardboard tabs together. If YES, then I could mail the ornament flat, and save a lot of $ on the shipping cost. 

 

Don't see why they wouldn't. But, it does say that it must be ready to hang. Could always send it and see what happens.

I hate to be the one to ask but, I was wondering if the winners will be able to choose from the T26e5 or the T26e5 P ? Not that it matters to me but, some people already have the Patriot. :teethhappy:

Says one entry per person, but my entry is two ornaments. Is that OK?

I didnt think to take pics before mailing. Mine consists of two 1/72 Scale model tanks, festively painted. (Had help from my 4 year old with the paint.)

Please make sure you get your entries in! The deadline is set to be postmarked on today, but as long as it GETS HERE before the 20th or so I'll accept it! SO that means postmarked today or tomorrow!

Got it completed and shipped out on time :great::

 

 

A still pic of completed ornament:

Just the globe bit:

The globe has a steel ball inside:

The wind up tank ( more a TD, actually ) by itself: 

Spoiler

 

Tanks body was made from a beer can :great: : 

Spoiler

 

Magnets needed to be held centered in the scavenged wind up toys frame at a certain height, so I had to make an adapter out of a mountain dew bottle cap: 

Spoiler

 

The adapter in the frame:

With the magnets installed:

Bottom view of magnets:

It does need to be wound pretty tight to run, decent enuf' horizontally; just don't ask it to climb hills ( like most TDs :teethhappy: ;)
