FAVOURITE NEW CASTING 2005/
FAVOURITE  LIVERY 2005

RESULTS

Almost 200 of you took part in this year's Vote, which was again split into two categories, one being for the Favourite New Casting of 2005, the second being the Favourite  Livery of 2005. Both covered the same period, i.e. 1st December 2004 - 30th November 2005. The prizes for the winner of the Favourite New Casting of 2005 category and the Favourite  Livery of 2005 are kindly being provided by both Jotus .com and the Sentosa Leisure Group. I am very grateful to both for offering these excellent prizes - Thank you.

Your first choice for each category was awarded 3 points, your second choice 2 points and your 3rd choice 1 point. At the end of voting, all the points for each model/livery were totalled, and the full results are shown below.
 
 

FAVOURITE NEW CASTING 2005

This category was dominated by two models, the Best Choose 1/24th scale Daimler Fleetline DMS and the Cars Workshop Enviro 500. The Best Choose Fleetline maintained a slender lead throughout the voting and eventually beat off the challenge of the Enviro 500 by only 13 points. Third place went to the Cars Workshop BACo bodied Fleetline, which received a substantial 260 points. Fourth place went to the Best Choose PLB, receiving 55 points. The Mitsubishi Fuso Aero King coach from Creative Master Northcord came fifth with 40 points and final place went to Corgi's 1/50th scale Atlantean, which received just 14 points.
 

Forty-two of you matched the votes of the overall result, and these names were put into the hat, with Carmelo Yeung being drawn as the winner. He will receive the Citybus 'Year of the Dog' model from Jotus .com, when released and the Sentosa MAN from the Sentosa Leisure Group.

FAVOURITE LIVERY 2005

This category was an even closer vote than that for Best New Casting, with the final vote of the competition giving the winner's spot to the Buses Model Co. China Motor Bus Leyland Olympian in special 60th Anniversary livery from the Drumwell's Pocari Sweat Volvo Super Olympian. The lead changed throughout the voting and on many occasions both were tying. Third place went to the New World First Bus 'Year of the Rooster' Trident from Jotus.com, with 'Year of the Rooster' liveries from KMB and Citybus taking fourth and fifth places respectively.

Fourteen people's votes matched that of the overall result, and these names were put into the hat, with Fong Kin Tai being drawn as the winner. He will receive the New World First Bus 'Year of the Dog' model from Jotus .com, when released and the Sentosa MAN from the Sentosa Leisure Group.
