It was a shame we didn't get more entries, though there were the same amount as the first, and I'm sure the next contest's theme will appeal to more people.
Also a shame to not see anything a little larger scale; though of course that's not the main determinant in the judgement.
I had a look at all the models, one by one, then all together... and decided...
First place has to go to Nick Barrett for his amazing 1923 Citroën 5CV 'Colverleaf' (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/257592) which looks great, and is built in a really interesting way, resulting in an excellent, accurate model of the car.
Second place goes to Jontheflyingscotsman meaden for his improved Bugatti Royale (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/205413), looking very much like the real Coupé Napoléon, and for such a small scale is really quite well done (part of the reason I make my cars so big is because that's the best way to get nice curves out of lego bricks... yet some people do manage to make them look quite good on a much smaller scale)
And finally, in third place, we have Lgo Builder with his, er, Bugatti Royale (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/259545). The choice wasn't made on the car itself, but rather the build - in order to be really fair, I had to accept the fact that two models of the same car could end up amongst the contest winners.Though good, there was a little inaccuracy with the proportions, compared to J Meaden's version.
Well... thank you all for participating; the next contest will be opened today, based on cars from the 50s-60s, so be sure to come along! A link to the group will be posted somewhere in the conversation here.
