  4. HenkieTenk,
    Thanks for your great model entry. Unfortunately, I have to disqualify it for the challenge because renderings are no longer permitted as part of an entry. If I had caught this before the voting period began, I would have asked you to remove the rendering and you could have presented your model in a different way. This is a difficult decision to make but I have to enforce the rules.

    1. Well, rules are evil... even if the entry is well modeled :(

    Voting is now closed. Thanks for your votes!

  6. Never heard of that rule before. Waste of time, making all those Chinese symbols. I always look beyond those renderings and styling and judge the way of modelling. (of course lots of people just look at the picture)

    1. I'm sorry about that. You did a great job and it looked great without the rendering.

  7. Btw, next challenge suggestion: garden tools (not electric)

    1. I understand how much time you (didn't waste but) spent on this model and I don't really understand where the rendering is. In the picture at the bottom I presume ?
      Anyway, it's a very fine model and me, I'm not looking only at the picture...
      Good luck for next challenges !
