Well after a month of CS building we have our results and winners. Each of you will receive detailed comments and breakdown of the scoring from myself and David on your individual pages. But before you scoot off to take a peek at these, can I say I am overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and support this little contest seems to have produced. I have had a joyous few weeks watching inspiring after inspiring MOC pop up in the group. I think you can tell from David and my scores that the competition was tight and of a really high standard. Those few at the top of the pile certainly had me scratching my head as to how I was going to judge someone the winner. Congratulation to Parrington Levens, his nostalgia inducing beauty tipped the scales in the end, and both of us had to agree he was the worthy winner. Nick Barret's fantastic combination of working crane in only 100 pieces earned him a justified second place. Jon B you piped Crimso Giger to the third place by the smallest of margins; this was a really hard call.

Only one final thing to say, thanks to David Roberts for offering to help with the judging and moderating of this contest, he put in some serious hours to making this work. I couldn't have done it without him.

It's been an exciting process, especially the last few hours. There's been some wonderful creativity expended on the builds. I think that people have enjoyed the nostalgia and the challenge of a limited palette of parts. It's great to see a group on MOCpages so alive with interest, plus all of the coverage in the Lego blogs.

To David A. Smith - I think that you had a simple but incredibly well formed idea in creating this competition: just like a Classic Space Pocket Money set!

Many, many thanks for inviting me along for the fun!

Congrats to the winners. Im personly satisfied with my outcome. the goal was top 10 and I made it to this. :) Besides that the taking part in this competition was much more important. For me it was a celebration of the classic space theme with lots of mocs i wish, they would exist as sets. :D And its good that this group will continue as a normal group.

I had fun and built a fairly good model. It isn't often that I make something that has a 2 digit number beside the smiley face.

I'll take 9th! Considering the company I was keeping during this contest, I couldn't ask for better. Congrats to Parrington, Nick, and Jon. Very deserving victories for each of you. Great job to everyone else who participated. Special thanks to the Davids for putting on this awesome contest and including me in it. It presented a fun challenge.

Hey, why the long face? 6th out of 31 isn't too shabby. Your build was fantastic as well as the alternatives. There were some real master builders in this contest, and your placement certainly makes you one of them.

I can't believe how much work you've put into the running of this contest. It's been so well run and I can't thank you enough. I've never had such a long comment on one of my MOCs before, in fact it was probably longer than most of my accompanying descriptions too. I hope you have taken as much pleasure from organizing this competition as I have had from competing. Congratulations to Parrington, a worthy winner.

It would be inappropriate to give all the plaudits to DAS, especially as you (David Roberts)* have obviously put in rather a lot of work too, so a hearty thanks to you as well.

* hmmm, I thought this would reply in the right place but final viewing proved otherwise, one day I shall get the hang of this conversation lark.

Thanks Tim! There was a lot of talent in this contest, and I really enjoyed seeing your MOC! I think I'll have my try building a few more CS pocket builds once this contest becomes the Lego Pocket Money Group!
And thank you David and David for the idea of this contest!

Thank you, Davids, for hosting such a brilliant contest, I don't remember ever entering a better one! This was always well out of my comfort zone, but I'm glad I entered, and I found it a lot more enjoyable than I expected.

Congrats to the winners too, no one could say they didn't deserve it!

PS-
I hope that one day you guys will host another contest, I know lots of people would be interested! And again, thanks for taking the time and effort to sort it all out :)

Firstly, a massive thank you to David and David for putting on a real challenging and thought provoking contest, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Delighted with my finishing spot, especially considering the strength of the entries. I went into this thinking it would be easy, but I'm way too used to building bigger models so it turned out to be quite a challenge. Well done especially to Parrington and Nick for two outstanding MOCs!

Thanks to everyone who entered, it was a pleasure seeing a surge of great Classic Space MOCs - I really hope the group can continue in some form and people will keep building CS from time to time. It is scientifically* proven to be the best LEGO theme of all time, but you all know that I'm sure :)

Guys thanks for all the well wishes here, I've read through all the comments here and am very glad to have been part of such a well spirited contest. In truth, you have all shown more Olypic spirit here than the Olympic athletes do. We are all fans here, and compete for the sake of seeing what our peers will come up with rather than just to win. And we have seen so many great cs builds here it as if we went back in time for a while. I have been staggered by the efforts made by all on presentation this contest. An epic effort from all that I applaud. Congrats to Nick and Jon also, and to David&David for having made such an impact on this site in such short time. All the best guys, keep bricking:)

Sorry I'm a bit late :)
So I'm very happy with the results, I think the winners were well chosen because of their marvellous entries.
I'm happy too with my fourth place, as my goal since the beginning was to be in the first five lol
Anyway thanks again to David and David to all the efforts they put in this awesome contest, and to everybody who enter.
Long live Classic-Space :-D
