I think we did a 24 hour GB many years ago ? Or was it somewhere else ?

I was referring to the one week GB and me desire to enter it, having read the first five posts, gotten excited, and hit 'POST REPLY LIKE AN IRRESPONSIBLE AND UNINFORMED MADMAN!!!' - not actually volunteering to run the crazy off-shoot one week of soviet madness GB, although I might be interested in that too. One should always read the whole thread.

I'm pretty sure there was a 24hr. GB once. I know I ran a sort of unofficial one on Melbourne Cup Day for three years or so, but at most only three people entered, and two of them were members of the pudding family.
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

Right the 2015 One Week GB will run from 3rd April until 12th April, both dates inclusive. So the build will cover the Easter break.

Dave - Kitbasher - has volunteered to run it and I will set up the various threads etc much nearer the time. However I will remind you every now and then so as to keep it in your minds eye.

The GB is completely open as to what you build. The only rule (as such) is that no construction or painting may start before 3rd April. Parts can be removed from sprues and cleaned up however.

So start thinking about what you want to build

Oh 'eck, what have I done?!  I can't even get something ready fro the one-year theme build, let alone a one-weeker!

But I do know what I want to build though.

Great to hear! Already have an idea, a kit and am currently puzzling together missing parts for a smooth (and maybe quick) build...  ;D

Sounds good. I'll have to think about what to build. Maybe a vehicle this time.....force myself to finish a truck or a tank. Or a boat.
