I'm a touch saddened to find that we're skipping the self finished month when we lost July, but that gives me another month to polish the build and prepare for September! In the mean time I'll keep it tuned here for inspiration/voting. Good luck all!
Voxic, -VB- and JPOL007 get this month's contest off to an amazing start! Good luck all!
Was hoping I would be the only entry :doh: Those are two beautiful builds :icon_thumright:
Just another 4 entries join the contest! Welcome Unzbuzzled, Gil Music, Mjh36 and Blackouts!
What a spread! I am seriously drooling over one that is not my own, yowza!
