Hi all,

I declare voting officially now closed! All votes after this post will be ignored I'm afraid.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to support our little group build by voting. A further big thanks to all the staff who are making time in their already chockers modelling schedules to support this fun build

Regarding the counts and who builds what, I've done the first tally, but am now going to verify the count. We'll let you know the outcome during the week.

Similarly, as soon as the results have been announced - we'll be doing the lucky draw

So stick around
