I have missed yet another build. the interstate trip didn't help but the fact its now June and I'm basically a single parent until the new financial year hasn't helped.

One day I will finish one, one day.

That really sucks, similar happened to me on the previous build, finished all the kit-bashing, just needed paint and final assembly.  The Haze Grey rattle can ran and orange peeled in places and I still haven't fixed it, not as bad as yours, I can still rub it back and repaint, just haven't had the time or energy. 

Was hoping to finish it for this build, i.e. my RAN DDL version of a Type 42 destroyer (instead of the FFG-07 actually selected) from the late 70s early 80s, with a hybrid DDLUP (instead of the FFGUP) plus AMSD (ANZAC Class Missile Self Defence) upgrade from 2010, life extending them to the 2020s or 30s, but just haven't been able to spend anytime on it at all.  Really disappointing as a stack of accessories I ordered from Shapeways arrived, increasing my upgrade options, i.e. an 8 cell Mk-48 VLS and I found a PE SPS-48 to use as well.

 I declare this, the Extended Service Life and/or Back Dated Group Build closed, and invite all modellers from across the globe to try their hand in any of the other Group Builds scheduled for this year.

And, as always, Happy Modelling!

Polls will be up shortly and run for one week.  So, as they say in Chicago, "Vote early, vote often!"
