If GB means group build then I wouldn't mind getting involved, depends on the subject matter tho.

OK, you've got me interested!

If we could just do about 120 of these so I can clear my stash....  :rolleyes: ;D

I would like to, but it would depend when it is, what the theme is and how much motivation I can work up at the time.

Well, I've just about recovered from building the Esci Tu-22M Backfire for the 2008 Spring Break One Week GB (the nightmares are much less frequent and my hands finally stopped trembling about six months ago, since you ask), so I'd be willing to give this a go. I have this Esci Blinder in the stash - - -  :rolleyes:

However, it would have to start after 31 January (ideally after 9 February) to take account of real world work deadlines.

I am interested as long as we get some time to think about what we are going to build and to work out what we are going to use to build it.

NARSES2, hope I didn't highjack this too much by suggesting a theme, as the original motion was for no theme/wide open.

Definitely up for it. :thumbsup:  The old 1WGB used to be a great success, would be good to see it back.

For anyone who doesn't remember it, have a look in the knackers yard:
2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

So I would not bother me at 1WGB, what I would simply build 1/350 Whif/Kitbash or so.  :party:

I like the idea of a themed GB such as Sandiego says, it's good to have a focus but nothing too tight. Why don't we kick off with a fairly simple open theme in late Jan/early Feb?

Seeing as it's winter, maybe the Cold War could come into play? 45+ years of history right there....

For the one week GB, I'd vote to keep the theme open to allow as many people as possible to participate.

Yeap the theme is doing a Whiff model within a calendar week which is a challenge, some can do the full kit bashing, others if may be a straight forward out of the box build as we can now buy What-if boxings. Because of the time constraint its better to leave the theme open as the modeller can best determine what they think they can build paint and decal within the week with adding the added constaint of a specific theme.

Just to keep the pressure up - how about the "in 30 days from box to pictures" time frame?
