Damn, I just started a new job and no spare time now!  ;D

That is great news Paul. I can call your new employer if you want and ask them for some company time so you to get at least build done. ;)

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

No chance, they have an encumbrance on my soul for the next six months, in fact I believe they are considering reintroducing conscription to get this contact completed.  Should be fun though, working on real floaty things again.

Good morning, afternoon, evening and night ladies and germs.

There are 8 official days left in the ACYWGB.

However as like all previous GBs the moderator I am transparent enough to say I am open to brides be they monetary or large amount of 1/72 aircraft kits to add an extension. 



So don't stop building/drawing/writing.  Don't leave anything in the tank!

Finish in style:

Well that was either the longest two day trial or the shortest "six month" contract I have ever experienced.  There were apparently very satisfied with my work but needed my "tools" for another project.  Unfortunately no tools means no ability to produce the artefacts I was being paid to produce, therefore no reason for me to be there. 

On the bright side it may be a good time for some therapeutic model building.

I'm sorry to hear this Paul. I hope you find another opportunity.

Ladies and Germs: There is just under 42 hours left.



However this is a benevolent Group Build so an extension could be granted with sufficient demand. I'm all ears.

With just under 6 days left I am expecting everyone to start pulling all nighters to get their projects done.

Stock up on your Red Bull, Rock Star, Venom etc and send me the bill.

It is great to see that Red Bull is starting to pay dividends

Just a reminder to put your finished product in the appropriate "Completed ...." sub-topic.

Thanks
