Wow. Very generous group build period!

From  Friday, June 1, 2018 to Friday, July 31, 2359 - that's 124,607 days. Or 341 years, 1 month and 30 days.

Is it too early to ask for an extension?

It's never too early to ask for an extension!

Whoops my bad.

Every time I thought about it something else came up and I forgot.  I'm not a very good moderator I'm afraid.
So anyone what or need an extension?  Or should that be a further extension?

Ok guys, it's looking like this group build has died of lack of interest, a plan b is required.

A suggestion

If Brian is in agreement would it be better to transfer the completed entries to the Clear Your Workbench GB, I derive a lot of fun building to a theme but I also like the competition with my peers.

Just trying to bring this build to a conclusion, i hate loose ends (does it notice ?)

Terribly sorry about my poor effort guys.  I am struggling even to find time to log in from my phone over the las couple of months.  Even right now I'm just sneaking a look in here as I take a break on finishing a report I'm working on at home.  I think I have read more documents and typed more words in the last three months than I have in the last three years.


I'll surrender myself to the BTS gulag once I find a way out of the salt mines I'm in at the moment.

Sounds like a plan, maybe I may get something finished for that.

Then again, collecting kits and actually building them are two distinct and different hobbies.

I did actually take time off the report I'm working on to submit an application for a new job. Next thing I need to do is work out what size straight jacket I should order incase I can't escape.

Our lives seem to be mirroring each other Volkodav, I  just got back from 6 weeks working away from home, brought around 25 models from a mate and 6 others from a collectables shop in Plymouth,  lost me modelling mojo .......... aaaargh !

If I'm patient I'm sure it will return
