One Week GB - anyone up for one ?
« on: December 31, 2014, 05:57:52 am »
Right I've been asked to see if there would be any interest in a One Week GB later in 2015 ? Obviously we'd need to handicap Dizzy in some way otherwise he'd get half a dozen done  ;D

Seriously, if interested jot your names down here

It does indeed. Apologies. I've corrected it and in honour and memory of Bert Royal my old English master will write it out 1,000 times  :blink: ;D

I'd be up for it - themed or anything you like in one week?
Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Anything you want to build as long as started and finished in one 7 day period

Sounds good to me. Will mean a 1000% increase in output and still be tight on any schedule !

Still I can use it as a legitimate excuse to hide away from the missus.   :thumbsup:

In likely- although I actually prefer a theme- I miss those.  Yes I know it requires consensus, and some themes generate more interest than others, but I think it also brings out some great creativity and comeradere working on a common theme.

Broad enough for creativity, but narrow enough to focus.  (ie: "North Atlantic 1946" is broad, "Yak-3 in western service" is not.)

Another idea - how about making this concept the official 2015 GB? Working frame is a calendar week, and the result is to reflect "something" that fits into a matching real world time frame, e. g. a whiffy D-Day model in/for the week of the 6th of June? That does not exclude fictional time, e. g. stardate for Trekkies... just an idea, but probably too abstract?

It'd take me a week just to decide which kits to use for the build.  :banghead:

Sorry, no chance I'll be competing, but I'll watch with interest.

I like Dizzy's idea, and hanker for a return of real group builds.  A week is likely too short for most, but appreciate the idea of getting timed builds back on the forum.  Heck 90 days was too short for many group builds.

I do like dizzys idea for a focus on a date of history, and gives you some time to think about what kits you want to abuse.

Ideas, not to celebrate war, but to hone in on a theme:

April 1st- bad idea/silly concepts
June- D-Day
November- Armistace, trench warfare/western front
May- VE day, or did the war go on?
May- spring cleaning- build the oldest kit in your stash.  Extra points for really poor/old kits.
August- Atomic ideas
December- winter sets in (let it snow GB, one of WHIF's best GB's)
