And another duel against Mr. X has come to a end.
Gabor Kovaks did challenge him this month, but it seems Mr. X was to strong.
Yeah this time it was a win for Mr. X, but Gabor did do a great job as well.
So congrats to both of you, thanks for dueling!
Also thanks to the voters, this makes dueling extra fun.

Thanks for this duel with some figures rarely presented here. I voted for Mr.X because I prefere a matt surface. But congrats to both for presenting their work.

Hooray for both duelers! I voted for the first entry because I really liked the colors and the photograph was crisp and clear. But the entry of Mr. X is very nice, as well. And he won!

Wow, 30 votes for a duel! Great work guys! Real nice duel, but I think the gloss on the figure of Gabor cost him votes! :thumbup:

I was back and forth, but agree the matt coat got my vote! Both were nicely done.

I tried to ignore the varnish used. I also prefer matt varnish; however I saw a higher degree of details and finer paintjob beneath the glossy one. Also I liked more his color scheme. My vote went for Gabor. Congratulations go to both contenders and to Mr. X for the win. And a special mention to the voters for having made it up to 30 votes.
