    1. I have evidence to suggest that you and Ghost are one in the same person. Two test comments were made in Happy New Year post from 2010 early this morning; one from "Ghost" and one from "Hellfire" just minutes apart. It appears that the "Hellfire" test comment was deleted in an attempt to conceal this behavior. I am emailed every comment as they are posted and this kind of thing doesn't get by me. For this reason I am excluding your votes from the results.

    2. Hi, we're brothers :)
      the test comments was made by both to understand if comments was editable after posting (such as facebook comments). If is not regular that more than one person comments using the same device we take note and we won't do this again.

    3. Please email me at su3dchallenge@gmail.com so we can discuss this further. Thanks.

    4. I will accept your votes, thanks for clearing it up with me.

  3. i am sorry , but the Mi-280 is just a modification of this model made in March2013 http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=b47682d67a9f142d83b1a45cd06e1806
    and having 2 early votes by non participant is kinda suspicious too...
    also (SketchUp 3D ANTI-Challenge by gi3d ) was made befor the challenge

    as for (( KeviG5 ,AlexElstone ,skarasmanis ,Sunduss, Ashleyp )) looks like you are all the same person , but i could be wrong , you are allowed to enter multiple models , you dont have to create 5 accounts .... whelcome to the 3dchallenge anyways :)

    3pts - CANON drone by DALEXD
    2pts - Skysapience by DALEXD >>Nice details and well modeled

    1. The Mi-280 model will be excluded from the vote results.Thanks for pointing that out.

  6. I Just want to point out that all tho i just recently came back , i am almost certainly leave for good , i don't agree with what the warehouse as become so i just leave to a better place (DO NOT START A CONVERSATION ABOUT ALL THIS HERE PLEASE its not the place) so i just want to thank you for the challenges/ratings/comments and votes for all the previous challenge and else ..you can follow me on deviantart (same name) See ya !

  7. Trimble has just stripped out a bunch of features of the 3D Warehouse. They removed commenting and rating system and it nolonger says the modelers name for models in the search results. I'm going to have to add some more rules to accommodate the changes to make the voting run smoothly.

  8. Hi! In the new 3d viewer mod components are seen displaced (I talk about my entry for this challenge, dialectic pagoda), this shows the modeler untalented to use SketchUp. Is there some solution to solve this mistake? It can't handle the amount of components or should I use newer version of SketchUp?

    1. I don't know why the viewer is doing that. I just tried copying your model into another file and uploaded the model and it does the same thing there. I can't find any problems with your model. I uploaded a starship model with a full interior with 5 times the amount of component instances and 10 times as many polygons as your pagoda and it displays just fine. Try contacting Trimble support and see if they can troubleshoot it on their end.

    2. Thanks, I reported the problem in abuse. If they don't answer I will post my remark to help forum and contact center...
