Wow! Scarcely I'm a day not online, you publicize the Masterbuilder! And than it's me! Many, many thanks for this honor. And for all the congratulations and the kind words from all of you. Especially Tom Snellen
and Kenn Oldham
I want to thank for this amazing finish. I thing it was very close and I want to see some other great entries at the CCC5 from you.
(By the way, I will go the way from the earlier dignitaries ahead and will not enter at next time. I think it's a nice tradition and we should keep it.)
When I saw the categories from CCC4 I thought 'man, you need
this forestmen-crossing'. So I tried to win the bridge-category. (But I have to say I was beaten from well designed other bridges.)
The first bridge stands on the table in front of me, and I got the idea to enter the other categories with entries that match all together to a big display. Building was fun ... the first days. Then it becomes to a job and the fun disappeared a bit.
Christmas stood before the door and my girlfriends patience leaned to end. Mid of december I had still so many ideas and was so short of time...
My luck was that a workmate offered me he could represent me at the office, so I was able to take two days hollidays. In this time I converted my ideas and I finished the other entries.
Again, I'm so lucky to get the 'Masterbuilder'-title and of course the 375! I think I can say I own a lot of Lego (I collect now for maybe 23 years), but I don't own any copy of the 375 and the other classic (yellow) stuff.
I'm looking forward for the decoration elements, too. I've a little forest-women without a green head-rag for example.
To the end I want to take up the cudgels*
for my fisherhut
. I like it very much.

I only took this one picture, but all the MOCs are still 'alive'. I have to wait for some sunshine and then I will take some more pictures.
