2 weeks to go to the "official" end lads


And if anyone wants an extension we'll need to know WHY you need it. Starting your build late in the period will not be an acceptable reason..................

Is this enough?

Jake: "No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare.  My tux didn't come back from the cleaners.  An old friend came in from out of town.  Someone stole my car.  There was an earthquake.  A terrible flood. Locusts!  IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!"

Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

The Revell Airbus 380 turned upside down would make the basis for a flying boat. The vertical tail fin would need removing and glued topside.

One of my fave films, and that's almost my fave line too.

You can guess my fave, it ends in '......sunglasses'.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

How about "I came up with an overly complex paint scheme"?

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

Mine is "Everything always takes twice as long as I think it will".

Only twice as long ???????????

"Gross incompetence on the part of the applicant for the extension"   as an acceptable reason??
"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you....."
It  means that you read  the instruction sheet

How about the old "Told myself I was not going to buy a new kit for this build, but got started and realized the ancient (Frog) kit was going to be a disaster and realized a mold from this century was required, but it took me a few weeks to get it....."

Surely I should get extra sympathy for still using parts from a Frog kit?

Surely a 4 week extension for anyone providing evidence that they are using a significant percentage of parts from Frog, Amodel or Mach 2...

Wheras, best laid plans seemed so clear
but open the box, and exclaimed O' dear
The paint was dry, the decals curled....

Our intrepid builder, suddenly sensed fear,
The seemingly easy build....turned to tension...
I hereby officially request, a two week extension....

At last!

The Combined Moderators will consider the suggestion in committee.  ;D
