The 109 is inching ever closer to completion (and I made a schoolboy error applying the first coat of RLM71 tonight - d'oh!) but with just over 2 weeks to go I'm getting worried about the Hurri - i.e. not getting it done in time, which is frustrating cos all I need is an hour's masking and the base coat of Dark Earth to get me on the way, but when is the question).

Dare one even contemplate mentioning the 'e' word yet?

Oooohh, that's pushing your luck Dave.

The Moderators will moderate and get back to you of course.  ;)

As before the Moderators have moderated, and decided, against our better judgement it may be said, to allow a ONE WEEK extension only.

Thus the GB end date will now be midnight on the 20th December 2015. It should also be stated that NO bribery of any sort was pertinent to our decision...........

No further extensions will be tolerated as we're getting seriously close to Christmas as it is.

You do realise that this will enable Dizzy to built at least five more entries though?  ;)

It has occurred to me that Dizz tends to build single engined aircraft.  If he could be persuaded to branch out into something bigger (like a B36 say) then it might slow him down a bit.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Yes indeed, but a B-36 in a BoB context would be difficult. And he'd only take 2 days for it anyway!  ;D

So midnight of 20/21 December?

.....and another week to the 27th - OK let's say the 31st - would hurt now, would it?  :o

Yes, midnight the 20/21st as you say, and not a second longer for reasons we've already explained.

I shall have to get my pictures up tonight. You've all seen my Avia B.35 at Telford anyway and all it might need is some swastikas on the tail.

That's it gentlemen, building should have stopped 14 hours ago.

I'm not sure where we go from here, I'll have to consult with the Moderator Bossman.
