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.

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

Remember guys that any builds for past GBs (even going back years) or other stalled projects are welcome for this GB. >:(

Time to start clearing those work benches of stalled projects, shelf of doom collections, missed GB deadline projects and the like.  Free up the space for the new year.
