Hi all,

I hope you enjoyed this contest - it looks to me like one of the more successful ones, with a nice big number of people taking part, and lots of high quality entries!

Only problem with that is I have such a hard time judging them... there are just so many really good ones, it's so hard to pick out the best - and you must keep in mind that anything that doesn't make the top 5 really doesn't mean it isn't bad; in this case particularly there were a great many truly impressive models.

So, after much thought, here are this contest's five winners...

In fifth place we have Thomas Graafland's Iveco Stralis AS440 Euro 5 (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/329417) - because just look at it. The first photo I saw, at first didn't even look like a lego model it was so good. Just a generally very well executed build, it looks spot-on!

Coming fourth is Jonathan Derksen's Fiat X1/9 (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/330061) because again, it just looks spot-on. It's not the easiest shape to make in lego, especially not in that scale. Well done!

Already in third we have something that could win most other contests no questions asked; it's Thomas Eckert's massive black technic Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/212671) , the size, functionality, looks - it's an amazing piece of work, and sows that just because a model is built with technic doesn't mean it can't look accurate too.

In second place is Ryan Link's Ferrari F40 (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/208145). It was hard to pick the better model out of his two entries, the other being the 458 Italia; both being very, very accurate and very, very detailed. In the end I decided that they were both as good as the other, and since I had to pick only one out of the two, I did the obviously completely fair, unbiased thing and picked the car I like more in real life :)

And finally, in first place, I happily congratulate Senator Chinchilla for his stunning De Tomaso Pantera technic supercar (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/328887).
... Just look at it. Do I really need to say much about it? The photos speak for themself...


...But as I mentioned, there were so many great entries this time, so here are a bunch of runners-up I had a hard time casting out of the winning circle; they're excellent so feel free to tell the builders how good their work is :)

Thanks for entering, and I've just started the 10th contest, this time for british cars - hope to see you there!

P.S. I have been home for the summer for over a month now... and yes, I know, I haven't made one lego model yet... terrible, isn't it? It's a combination of everyday life being very busy, the existence of other hobbies (currently building up some model airplanes) and coming back to find that most of the lego has been buried under other people's rubbish whilst I've been away. Hopefully I'll get a chance to make a model or two during this trip, we shall see...

Congratulations, winners! And Dan, thanks for mentioning mine.

Also, I think this went into moderation because you wrote the word "rubbish." But I could be wrong.

Congratulations to the winners! The 1st and 2nd place are two of my all-time favourite cars on MOCpages, too :-))

And thanks Dan, for another great contest! :-)) I already have some ideas which British car I could build. I hope I'll get time to build at least one of them before Contest #10 is over...
