I got the idea from some chaps in a castle who built a glider out of whatever they could find.

We had to pull Hoskins off this model. He kept confusing the aggregate with the collective.

I'll judge now in case I can't later, and it will also give us time to get a new one for the weekend.

Runner up is Wensleydale with,
Chopped Jaguar pilot Brian had graduated from mud-moving to mud-mixing.
And the winner is Treadigraph with,
Sikorsky Pave Low - the early years..
It made me laugh anyway, and I also liked your Portland one.

Builders said they will definitely be round yours at 8 tomorrow morning with the trophy.
