You have to complete the build during the allotted time period.  Already started projects can be entered (after approval) but not already finished projects.

How about an incomplete or interim standard build, i.e. I had something in mind but changed my mind because of some new information I recently came across but will not be able to complete it in the manner I now desire?  Is it permitted to complete it to a preliminary standard, plastic bits and bobs but with the intent of detailing it down the track with PE once acquired?

I was initially going to finish my modernised KGV and was considering a 16" batch II KGV (as opposed to a Lion) either WWII or post war modernised configuration and / or, depending on time, a Nelson type 14" battlecruiser, but after seeing a very interesting photo I have now pulled a completely different kit out of the stash.  I have everything I need for a basic build but will not be able to get all the required detail sets in time, is it acceptable to complete and submit a model completed to an interim standard?

I don't see why not.  Shoot me a PM with the specifics so we can be sure.

I don't know if anyone's (even me) asked yet but can we have an extension? ???

I'm sure my build wont be finished by the end date. :icon_crap:

It might not make it by the end of a regular extension, either, but there's more chance of it. :-\

It's going to be pretty tight for me to wrap my project up - daughter's soccer and son's college visit are going to eat up my available time.

I'll second the motion for an extension.

Attention all hands an extension has been granted.  All work must cease by 23:59 on April 14.  No further extensions will be granted so hustle up!

As you were  :)

I was excited and appreciative of the extension until I realised it coincides with school holidays and zero chance of doing anything that doesn't involve food, drinks, mine craft, Disney Infinity, Skylanders or Lego Batman.

If its not finished before then two weeks will make no difference.

Been sleeping in the pilothouse too often apparently.  Issue has been addressed and solved.  The coffee mess is working once again.  As you were!
