Indeed some good stuff!

Fun to play this year- not sure if I was sane to sign up in the first place, but glad I got it over the finish line (but don't look too close  ;))  Self-inflicted agony  :banghead:

Thanks so much for hosting.

I enjoyed it - purely and simply because it focused me on getting it done rather than putting it aside and starting something else and then nothing getting finished.

And do you know what - all the detail I would have put into the passenger cabin if I hadn't had time constraints - you wouldn't have been able to see it !  Lessons learnt !

Very enjoyable and well done to everyone who took part, finished or not. the real world often scuppers well laid plans  :banghead:

Many thanks to Kitbasher for doing the organising  :thumbsup:

I will be posting something about possible future GB's in the main body of the Forum next week. So keep an eye open for it.

It was fun, personally but also to see what come forth in the meantime. Many great ideas, and I am amazed about the sheer number of participants/entries. Did not expect that much enthusiasm.  :thumbsup:

Hear, hear.

Defintiely makes you concentrate and get something off the bench- even if it has warts like mine did.  

Lessons learned, for me anyway: kit selection is very important- simple kit is the way to go, and paint scheme is critical- I usually let a color sit at least 24 hours before moving to the next color... here I had to "spray and pray".

That was fun - well done to all who participated and thanks for all the encouragement.

On being pushed: something I noticed in previous 1WkGBs was that I always did better when I tried something that seemed over-ambitious, thus forcing me into really re-organising my time to make it work. The times when I've done something simple, I've taken it easy and the result has been lacklustre.

Yup! Got to agree with everybody else that was fun  :thumbsup:
Even if I didn't quite make it :rolleyes:
It was good to have to concentrate on one build, instead of doing a bit, getting
Distracted, and starting something else etc etc
Looking forward to something similar  :thumbsup: later.

(And thanks to kitbasher for moderating) :cheers:

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks
