The podium finishers are:

Both Christopher and Ken will receive another 25 points in recognition for their excellent submissions this round. Wonderful work guys and congratulations!!

Kyle and Byron will both receive another 50 points to add to their respective totals. Beautiful work and tremendous job you two! 


And in First Place: 

Michael's 'What a Load of Bullucks'

Absolutely wonderful Michael (that pale violet gun carriage is brilliant). For claiming top spot on the podium Mr. Awdry will receive another 75 points and a gift certificate from Kyle over at Mr Lee's MinisCongratulations Michael, you can now unhitch your beasts so they can rest on their laurels and bask in the glow of their fame.


Once again, a BIG thank you to all the participants of the 'BFG' bonus round - you all gave us wonderfully varied and booming interpretations of the theme. Brilliant stuff! 

Finally, as a reminder, next Saturday midnight (February 3rd) is the submission deadline for our next Bonus Theme Round: 'Musician', so limber up your fingers, run the scales and show us what your interpretation is of this sonorous theme!
