2019 Clear Your Workbench Group Build

Come all you professional procrastinators, serious slow builders, and exemplary experts of the 1/1024, 1/512, 1/256, 1/128, 1/64, 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4 and 1/2 completed projects.

This will be THE year (just like the year before this one and the one before that one and other ones as well ) to finish those projects.

The Rules:
  • Have fun!!
  • Any project is allowable, so long as it is already started and not yet complete - that is the purpose of this group build after all.
  • Physical models, profiles, stories are all allowed.
  • Projects for other Group Builds that are not completed in time will automatically be nominated for here - no trying to hope everyone forgets what you were doing or the fact that you were too slow to finish.
  • The Group build runs for the entire of 2019 and will officially close 31 Dec 2019 - the goal is to finish the projects by the end of the year.
  • Moderator will be The Big Gimper.  As always, bribes are welcomed. Money and Food are good places to start.
  • Have fun, clear out the shelf of doom and finish something!!!

I may have a piece or two to work on here ... or twelve. :-[

I've actually started my year with some older builds & one upgrade/finalisation (I finished the build except for one element that I needed the parts for).

The RAN Sea Beau is on the back-burner for the moment but will come to the fore soon but in its own thread, not here. ;)

Likewise Guy ----  :-X

I'm going to say I'll try to get these below finished. They're practically there as it is. But I'll finish the choppers I've started and the AV-22 first.

Is it too soon to ask for an extension?

I have taken your request into account. I am now consulting with my fellow providers. How many quatloos do you have?

Doesn't this thread need to be moved into the top bit (the name of which I have no idea) with the other 'currently active' GBs?
Never trust a man who tells you that you have too many paints, for he is obviously a liar and will most likely try to deceive you again in future.

Good Morning Mr. Duck!

I see that it is currently pinned to the top of the Group Build child board and subject.

http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?board=6.0

Now the first short run GB is the Scaleorama GB which starts on February 1 and goes to 30 April 30.  So it is currently the only listed active GB. No others GBs are listed at this time until Friday.

HTH
