Okay by my count there were 23 entries (including me) and I don't own a D22 (the horror!) so I am using some random number generator I gizoogled...

...and it spit out #10, which is (checks post) Tony Sestito! Congratulations and please PM me your address so I can send you a shiny new AMT 1972 Corvette Roadster!

I decided with so many entries I would roll again and got...

16, which is slowbird! You are getting a Revell 1990 Mercury Cougar XR-7.

With the amount of interest in this build challenge, I decide to dig deeper into my stash and find a few more kits to let go. Mazdax605, your perseverance in the face of that challenging Delica has been a great inspiration and I am going to send you a Revell Thunderbird Turbo Coupe with glue, paint, and brush. Which reminds me, David S. Wallens is getting one as well because you need to try plastic and building the metal mini anyway in the spirit of the build was cool.

If the four of you could please email me your addresses, I will get these right out! (Also if you'd rather a different kit, let me know. I have a 65 Mustang fastback, 57 Chevy Bel Air, and a 69 Cougar Eliminator available).

I wish I could send all of you a kit as a gratitude for doing this challenge with me. It has been inspiring and really helped me get through the last two weeks. I hoped it helped you as well.

A big thanks for putting this on.  Even though my entry turned out crappy I had a lot of fun and my 12 year old is way ahead of my already for the next one.

I didn't win and, quite frankly, I don't mind at all, I had fun building the Porsche and having a deadline made me get to the bench a lot more than I did in the last years....

 

thanks for the initiative and the generosity! It was fun! 

Now, on to the next one, with less time on my hand since I'm back at work. We'll see what came out of it this time....

Thanks for starting this.  This was a lot of fun to build a model, did it faster than I am used to as well.  Happy to just be part of this thread, and I definetly learned a few things from everyone here. 

Can't wait to see the next round of models.

FWIW, your build was my personal favorite. Especially since it was a remodel/restoration.

Your rally Focus turned out amazing and is my favorite race car. I definitely want to try a modern rally car model build now...

Hey don't be so hard on yourself! Your Diablo turned out well enough for a shelf and you've got your kid excited about model building!
