Clarification please Chris.

When you say less than a week to go, is that to say it's tools down on 31 July or when?  And what time zone?

Doing my best to get it finished by Friday night!

Right. Hope this helps.

The official closing time is midnight GMT on 31/7/14. In effect this means some time Friday 1/8/14 morning (UK Time) as I'm not staying up to midnight.

HOWEVER I will allow the weekend for people to finish builds and get them up on site.

The reason for this is that sometime the following week I am going to produce a thread which will have one picture of each completed build on it so that we have a tribute for Anthony P in a format which is perhaps more user friendly for any of his friends/relatives who aren't necessarily modellers to look at.

Now I'm not normally pedantic as far as time tables go but for this one I'm being a little stricter for what I hope are the right reasons ?

In summing up - If you have a build that is almost finished on Friday morning (1/8/14) then PM me with an expected finish date, and be realistic with this, and I will consider it and hold my final thread over for a day or so.

At the end of the day I can always append any really late builds to my final tribute thread.

Hope that helps Dave and is fair to all ?

Chris

Many thanks Chris, very helpful indeed.

My target to finish is Thursday night, then, to include at least one picture either Thursday or Friday.  Visiting my mum at the weekend and as she lives in a lead and concrete reinforced bunker covered in 40 feet of topsoil that prevents any free wi-fi or 3G of getting in or out (so it seems) I'll have to finish posting Sunday or Monday night if necessary.

Deadline rationale all understood and understandable, BTW.

I bought my kit yesterday. A Mig 29. I'm still going with my original idea of a scale o rama, but only starting smaller  :thumbsup:

Chris - is it considered cheating if I get the build done - painted, decalled, photographed - and subsequently (i.e. past the deadline) update when the stores are done and attached?
Title: Re: TWO WEEKS TO GO
Post by: Captain Canada on July 30, 2014, 07:07:12 pm
I wouldn't think so. Chris already asked to let him know your time line and he could adjust or add to the final thread later.

Not at all Dave. Just consider her as before and after load out

That was the cunning plan, Captain Blackadder sir.

I should have her up on her feet tonite and good enough for the 'official' finish, but I'd like to add some bits over the weekend if I get time.

The build is officially finished but I won't get around to preparing the "final thread" until middle of next week or so

Slight delay, busy week  :cheers:

I'll be pulling this all together over the weekend

Chris

Float Spitfire & Yak-3 now finished and photographed. Should get photos loaded this evening, barring computer problems - my computer has taken to switching itself off because of overheating. (Although local computer tech thinks it's the AC adapter that's the problem, not the actual computer. So I now have to order a new adapter, assuming the computer stays on long enough to let me do it - - -  :rolleyes:)
