As we wait for Jon Palmer to give us his top five for Contest #7: R-wing Fighter **Updated**, let's have some fun coming up with our own top five list.

So spill on your picks already.

Okay, as you should know: Contest #7: R-wing Fighter: Finalists Selected, Vote Now!

As official voting has started, I've gathered our straw poll results.

Unofficial Voting Results 8/29/2006 11:00am:
1 Adrenaline
4 amethyst
1 apophisV
4 bwu
1 donner1846
1 dwhisper
7 fmoo
1 gold_2
7 legohaulic
3 lt. kettch
7 Mark Stafford
3 porschecm2
2 renegade
1 rogue bantha
9 schism
1 the champ
2 ThePlasticJedi
2 tzidik

Clearly, we can see that this contest will result in a three way tie between fmoo, legohaulic and Mark Stafford since the leader Schism did not make it to the final five.

Top 4 (no particular order):
Mark Stafford
fmoo
schism
legohaulic

I'm not sure what my final pick would be. Some of my favorites are Lt. Kettch, mikepsiaki, Weasel47, porschecm2, gold_2, and TPJ. Such a hard choice!

P.S. Of course, if the Marevah (Amethyst's entry) hadn't been disqualified, it would have definetly made my top 5. Sad

Eh, I think in the end, voting will do it. Don't know if this is required, since we've covered comments in the MOC threads pretty well.

Well, I'd pick myself, because, well, I like me. Probably not the best, but you know.

I was fond of porschecm2, Mark Stafford, Schism, TPJ's, and renegade's take on the R-Wings. There were positive qualities to every one of them, and I think everyone did a great job

Andy, you're not allowed to make this kind of post without revealing your own picks. Wink So fess up!

For me, I love my own build as a mother would love her child. Mr. Green But if I had to pick five more, these are my favorites:

schism
amethyst
porschecm2
lt. kettch
legohaulic

There were a lot of other great entries that made it really difficult to pick, since everyone's builds were quite unique and had differing styles. I love these open-ended contests the best!

My picks, in alphabetical order apparently, are:
•Adrenaline
•BWU
•Legohaulic
•Mark Stafford
•tzidik
-and of those, I think Mark's looks the most like the R-Wing that would fit in with Jon Palmer's ships.

My TOP Five (in order):
bwu - love the fins
legohaulic - good R shape and details.
renegade - for too many greebles and Lights!
Mark Stafford + schism are tied
ThePlasticJedi - such a neat shape to me.

Those that I wished had qualified
amethyst - The Marevah was so interesting, but that cockpit Sad
Jzaltheral - Interesting shape
MKD - that octagon hole made it the "Anti-TIE"
roguebantha - rolling mines on an ISD Smile

Very difficult to choose only five but schism and amethyst would definitely be there.

I guess the others should be fmoo legohaulic and mine would win, hahahahaa Evil or Very Mad

Nice to know some people noticed mine, thanks Very Happy

Thanks Shocked I didn't expect to be in someone's list of favourites.

Schism
Weasel47

* Not really sure where the "R" comes from on that one, but it's still a nice ship.

My top five favorites in no particular order are:

- Legohaulic (The most Star Warsy looking)
- Porschecm2 (The most Palmerish)
- Amethyst (The most exotic shape ever)... Saddened by it's disqualification!
- Schism (Wildest and deadliest looking)... Winner underlooked!
- Fmoo/Krush (The most Animated)

... And from the options we had to choose from, I voted for Porschecm2's...

I am very flattered to have my MOC mentioned so many times in this post, I think I counted 5. And to actually be put in the top 5 absolutely throttles me. I truly regret not having the poll put up, I think I could have broken the infamous 2 votes barrier I always have gotten on FBTB contests. As for my top R-wings:

Schism
fmoo
mikepsiaki
Mark Stafford
Dyip_90

TPJ

I was really impressed with the diversity of shapes that were pulled off for the contest. A lot of very well constructed entries to be sure.

In no particular order, My favs were:

Legohaulic
BWU
mikepsiaki
Weasel47
Adrenaline

But there were a lot of very impressive entries. Overall I think John did a good job picking the top 5. While I might have picked a little differently, I don't believe that had we voted there would have been much difference in the final round from what we have.

A great contest and lots of good work from the folks out there.

I was very impressed with the great work I saw in this contest. Unfortunately I didn't have time to build an entry myself, but there's always next time. Wink My personal choices (and reasons) for top 5 were:

Lt. Kettch - Loved the color scheme and overall feel
PorscheCM2 - What I would picture Jon Palmer doing
schism - Great organic feel and great backstory
Mark Stafford - Very original design
Weasel47 - The blending of 2 different ships and the way the wings seemed to fit so well together

Well, there you have it. Can't wait to see what challenge Ace has for us all next month!!!
