I favour F,G or H which are similar, but I thinik the line diagram in H is too detailed.  S and T are also attractive.  As far as copyright goes, I agree we should leave out any MB naming, but the star in itself - would that not fall in the same category?

I think everyone involved has put in a massive effort to design and refine these badges, I would be proud to place any of these on the front of my car.


The only problem I see is that its like asking 200 people what you want to eat at a party, chicken wings? pizza? sausages? party pies etc.. A common consensus can be almost imposable to achieve.

I think it will be hard for everyone to agree on a design without offending someone who put a lot of work into their creation.

Sorry guys... wasn't arround...
 :( Sadly, last week was a nightmare for me... 2 funerals... in 4 days. an uncle and a grandma'
That's what kept me from answering... I'm quite... f***ed up right now so...
The badge collection shows how much work everyone put in.  :)
No more surprises for me... maybe just vote for what there is.When you'll decide, I'll give you the Corel file needed for printing made upon what you choose...

Thanks for understanding, and sorry once again for my absence lately...

Andrew, so sorry to hear the news.  I was happy to see you make a post again thinking you've been swamped with work or on holidays, certainly didn't expect to hear of your family's losses.

All the best buddy, to you and your family.
Regards,
Simon
