I had a look at the first post for this GB and sure enough today is apparently the finish day!


Yeah I guess you're right, there. Better get the entry photos in folks, but unless I'm wrong Wally's won by default as the others aren't finished?

Grant's looked a long way off
No updates from Craig
Mine's a couple of days off
Nothing back from Taylor
Nothing from Hadley?

Anyone else got anything ready?

Thanks folks. I'm not so sure I like winning by default and do we need to hear from all the entrants?
If everyone agrees I'll take the win though, if you know what I mean.
"All credit to the opposition" as they say in sports broadcasting
I'm also gonna see this through for my own satisfaction but only because I've spent so much time editing photos and getting them back into my infanview file (or whatever it's called?) ... The Wizard thing ... the place the photos originally went inside the computer ....
So here's my final five, one day late and hopefully in an order that kinda tells the story a bit more ...











and I can't resist one more ...



It's been fun but wow, didn't November 1st come around quickly?
So yeah, let's make these comp GBs a year long in future (and maybe limit the number of entries for people like me?)
Paul, aside from fun, my modelling is based on three simple tenets - maximum fascination (or perhaps obsession?), minimum expense and minimum (noticeable) effort. [When one is lost in the obsession one doesn't tend to notice the effort I find]
Cheers,
Wally.

If we don't hear by the end of today it's closed, where and how do you want the prize money? You can always donate it to a worthy cause :whistle:

Gary, the worthy cause this time will be getting me to Cambridge with this dio and my other GB models (plus a few more) in tow.
I'll email you my bank details.
Thanks everyone.
