The Rules
« on: September 18, 2016, 07:23:39 am »
Right gentlemen, here are the rules.

I do realise that the definition of what constitutes an old kit could get quite intense so please can I please ask you to a keep the spirit of the GB very much in mind and b) think in terms of when the moulds were tooled rather than when the particular moulding you have to hand was produced. It's the date of the moulds being tooled that counts.

1.  Group Build runs from 00.01 Saturday 1st October 2016 to 24:00 Saturday 31st December (all times local). 

2)  An old kit is considered to be any kit where the moulds were originally tooled before 1st January 1985. Any boxing using those moulds is perfectly acceptable. Transfers (decals if you must) can be of any age you choose to use. In the case of kitbashes or the use of the aftermarket, 60% of the finished model must be from the original pre 1985 tools or toolings.

3)  You may build as many entries as you like (good luck!).  I'm afraid I can't work out how to include stories or profiles in an old kit GB so I think this GB will be purely for models. The posting of in-progress pictures is encouraged as always.  Back stories - however long or short - win extra points.  Well OK they don't but they're always nice to see.

4)  "Preparation" work is allowed prior to the start of the GB - this includes the cutting out and cleaning up of parts, even printing your own decals (!), but anything involving paint or glue is not allowed. 

5)  Part-started models will be considered by the moderators. You should explain what you have done or post pics (even better) and they will convene and pass judgment, their decision being final - we are relying on the honour of our membership to uphold this rule.

6)  No rule 6 - is there ever a rule 6 ?
 
7) Moderators - Crudebuteffective and Kitbasher ; thank you gentlemen

RIGHT PEOPLE / GENTS / LADIES

AS we are approaching the end date for the build now is perhaps we discuss extensions and the requirement for one before you start begging and  grovelling to get one or indeed before the threats start coming in

so if anyone needs a one week extension send clean unmarked bank notes to............

OK ask

mark

Remember, if the reality police ask you haven't seen me in ages!

So following on from the extension offer there were a few request so the GB now ends at local midnight Saturday 7/Sunday 8 January 2017

At some point after Sunday we'll run the poll.  crudebuteffective and I are working out the poll's ins and outs - and we won't be asking David Cameron for advice on how to screw up a poll.  Brexiteers and Remainiacs we love you all!
