And the winner is...

Clock Oct 28 2016 06:30 AM Author BGTKing Comments 5 comments

For the first time, the Expert Panel has been used to determine the winner of the 2016 Summer Heat contest.

 

The score uses the weighted average of the Expert Panel's design, smoothness, creativity, and overall ratings for each model plus the weighted average of the community rating to give an Expert Panel score from 0 to 10.

 

Expert Panel Score
Design 20%
Smoothness 20%
Creativity 20%
Overall Score 30%
Community Rating 10%

 

Using this formula, the results broke down like this for the 2016 Summer Heat contest. Read more to see the winner...

The Summer Heat contest featured four quality entries, three of which qualified for the Expert Panel with a community rating of at least 75%.

 

Based on the Expert Panel, with a score of 8.03, the winner of the 2016 Summer Heat contest is...

 

Thunder by CW5X!

 

This model, attempting to recreate the Crystal Beach Cyclone, really personifies the type of model that this year's contest, with a beachy/boardwalk theme, was hoping to inspire. The sweeping curves of this wooden coaster are just majestic. Awesome job and congratulations CW5X!

 

 

Coming in second place with a score of 7.35 was Krake by rgarner42. And coming in third with a score of 7.03 was Black Thunder by Zorn.

 

Thank you everyone for making the 2016 contest successful, whether you entered or whether you helped vote!

Wow. Thanks everyone :D I really thought I wasn't going to win this with the quality of the other models. Given that there haven't been a huge amount of contests recently, I think this is perhaps return to form with every model being of a high standard.

Congratulations! I have to agree, all the models that were entered were of very high quality, but this one just takes everything that's great about the crazy Cyclone layout and models it flawlessly. Great job with this one!

Congratulations, Chris! This was a fantastic build, and although the other entries were really, really great, I couldn't agree more with the outcome of this contest!
