Besides good ol --- Clear Your Bench  (make it a default each year?)

Floaty, ESL, Vertical, Left Earth Behind are good bets to be thinking about.

Yes definitely, probably should be the last build of each year.  Maybe we could have some staple builds and intersperse them with original build concepts with a degree of overlap.

This was the case in earlier years but it slipped off the radar last year (mainly because we had other overlapping GBs).  I am happy to make it the standard, End-of-Year GB if people want it.

I would support this being the annual year-end GB.  Of course, for those intrepid builders among us that always finish what they start, we could have another GB going concurrently with Clear Your Workbench so they wouldn't feel left out.

Well the people have spoken and I will put a consolidated calendar shortly.  I only have one question:  Do you want the Clear Your Bench GB to be first or last this year?

Taking the results of the poll, I believe these will be the GBs for the coming 12months or so:

  • Clear Your Bench GB - either first or last for the year subject to current poll
  • Floaty/Ship/Naval GB (includes all things Naval Aviation as well as Seaplanes/Floatplanes) - should be quite interesting since both ships and aircraft are allowable
  • Extended Service Life and/or Back dated GB
  • Vertical Take off GB (includes helicopters, STOVL etc)
  • W.W.III-Between the years of 1946-1955 GB - will include provided we have time
  • COIN aircraft GB - will include provided we have time

I will plan on each GB being for 2 months (with possible extensions). 

You will note that the last two might be tight to fit in - this can be done if we have some overlap though.

I will also be looking for volunteers as GB Moderators - speak up now!

Now, about none of my recommendations being down selected… :icon_punal:

Ok, we have one GB Moderator sorted - Mike (aka Cliffy B) has volunteered to moderate the Floaty/Ship/Naval GB.

Now about the rest...
