Test Post for BBCC ending Poll
"BBCC 2" -- 2nd Balsa Builders Conversion Contest Judgment Thread

As of 31 August 2013, eight participants successfully flew their entries in BBCC 2.

It is now up to you to decide the "best build."

This poll will be "open" until midnight UTC, 30 September 2013. The current time UTC is available HERE.

Each participant, listed at the bottom of this post, built and flew a radio controlled model aircraft, constructed predominantly of balsa, based upon a kit or plans not originally designed for radio control.

The poll, located at the top of this thread, will decide whose entry is declared "Best Build;" the winner receiving three aircraft prints generously provided by the artist, Mr. Peter Rake of Peter Rake's Vintage Scale Models.

You may use whatever criteria you wish, but I hope you will do the following:

1. Click on each of the links/pictures below, which will take you to a participant's build thread.

2. Read through each thread and comment as you wish; adding your encouragement, appreciation, and good ideas.

3. Return to this thread and, using your own criteria, vote for the one you think best.

4. Consider joining the next BBCC, coming soon to the Balsa Builders Forum

Thanks! But, you know, when do do something a lot, it doesn't take too long... computers are my "weapons system"... they are how I put rounds on target.
