xiei I've loved your ship since you posted it. The asymmetry is well carried out and despite the smaller size you have a decent sized interior. good luck and may the best ship win!

what can i say?
the only thing that fly in my mind just no: so happy and so proud to be some-kind-of-VS you!
Indeed you build one of the most weel-builded and well-designed ship of the entire contest so far...
love it from the first time i saw it!...so clean line, so STEALTHISH color...

in the end, good luck! May the best ship win! And may the best Bounty Hunter win! :D

BAS-e1 got my vote. Certainly a hard decision on this one.

I'll be the first to admit my prisoner holding cell is lacking, absolutely. But I don't think it's fair that you've gone to each bracket and advertised for one of the ships, if want to say something specific try and compliment both ships in the bracket (and certainly don't say anything bad about them). Let's keep this a fair contest.

I'm going to edit my posts, but I'm pretty sure I didn't wrote anything that would
lift a MOC in someone's eyes high enough to affect their vote.

EDIT: That first part sounded childish and offensive. Edited.

I hope you'll forgive me Zane, but I'm gonna have to disagree... I don't think your hold is lacking at all. True I can't tell if they're bacta tanks like in empire, or ray shielded like in revenge of the sith, but more importantly, they're executed cleanly, and suit the design of your ship. As for stardusty expressing his opinion, I'm all for that too, sharing a dissenting opinion is always better than apathy. While it's possible to curry favor this way, I can tell by the vote count that most votes come from contestants, and as such are far more likely to formulate their own opinions than to follow someone else's.

you are forgiven, hahahha.
yeah I think it's good people express their opinions, the main point I wanted to make was to not insult any of the builds. I'm happy with how my ship turned out so it's not so much for me, but some people put a lot of work into what they do and nobody likes to hear that they did a bad job. I was also all worked up from the exchanges between rook and the FBTB staff haha.

and feel free to disagree with me as much as you want :)

i can see a well done coversation and fair play.... :D
i agree with some you said: i don't like the Zane's prison-holder but only for MY opinion, but i totally and quietly say that they're abslutly well builded. And, most important of all, they're the exact result of the Arkose VII design. All in that ship is exatly where it shoul be!

This discussion might seem contradictory, but (as an architect :p ) i think that a good design may generate only decision and draws remindable to that design. Sometimes may happen that something seems out of place, but I think it MUST be observed and watched in the overall design.

So, I actually haven't done anything wrong?
I've just stated what's IMHO made better on one MOC, and why did that MOC got my vote.

haha yes you're fine. I am not mad or offended or anything else. like madLEGOman said, people should be free to express their opinions, and after I thought about it I agree. so say whatever is on your mind :)
