Good morning Tankers, 

 

After much debate and discussion between The Chieftain, Cabmech and myself we have decided on winners for both categories of the contest! It was not an easy decision and we ended up discussing it over the course of the last three days. However, we have indeed come to a final decision and I am pleased to announce the following:
 

Traditional category Top Three

 

First Place: AMX-13 By LordSeaCow.

The almost photo realistic build of AMX-13 "Duroc" of the 11 regiment de chasseurs in it's non standard paint as it appears in a period reference photo was simply incredible. As Chief put it "it looks like a real vehicle". Amazing work, well earned first place!

Second Place: Tiger 1 Ausf E by Boblord69
Above and beyond work on the overall diorama and excellent figure painting skills.

Third Place: Tie

We have a tie for third place, between two unique builds of which both are lesser covered subjects in AFV scale modeling

Somua S-35 "Henrique" by Stat_McPadding
Lovely work and weathering on this S-35 and as Chief put it, it is indeed shiny like most of the real ones tended to be. Well done!

JGSDF Type 61 by PWT32
Not something you see too often in modelling. Well done, especially at the smaller 1/72 scale. We appreciated the full matching diorama as well.

Special achievement award

Simply for overall herculean effort, we had to recognize Zalsbak and his fully 3D printed and remote controlled T26E3 with Chuck Norris as commander. Amazing work!

I burst out in laughter when I saw the Tog model. That guy has a great sense of humor.

Some very, very fine looking models here. Good job everyone.

If you have been chosen please check your email as soon as possible so we can coordinate prizing. Thanks again for everyone's hard work and dedication. I will be pushing to try and make this a yearly contest over the holiday season.

Congrats to the winners. This was my first time creating a model of any kind. The fact I made it to the "Finalists, Runners up and Honorable mentions" is an honor. Hopefully next time I'll be more prepared, and have the tools needed to succeed.:honoring:
