How about "I can do the Kessel Run in 12 studsecs"?

As a side-note, I really hope I'm able to finish the micro-scale AT-TE I'm working on before the deadline, even though I had terrible luck and I have to study for the exams I have next week :S

My entry for the contest, the famous Millennium Falcon- piloted by Han Solo and his faithful Wookiee, Chewbacca. Includes a docking ramp, a removable shell and full interior, and, in case of Imperial boardings, a smuggling compartment.

It's cool to see someone else's view of the millennium falcon I was going to use that same windshield combo but went with the other style. Nice work.

What aspects of a build do you exactly pay attention to when reviewing them? Besides the obvious ones, like does it meet the rules. Is it mostly the way it looks or can, for example, clever building techniques make a model better than some other model?

Well on FBTB the contests are decided through community votes, not judges (and needless to say everyone will have their own criteria when voting).

It will be a single poll with all of the qualifying entries. Everyone will get one chance to vote and they will be able to select multiple models. Total number of votes per person will depend on how many entries we receive by the deadline.

Since my StarSpeeder 3000 didn't qualify, and my attempt at an Imperial Shuttle was no good, I went with the Desert Skiff.
