I may have to pull out from my builds for this GB, at least for the GB itself, I'll still build them but it'll take longer.  :banghead:

I've got a lot of railway stuff landed on my plate and I've been asked to help out the local ATC Squadron build an 'RAF 100' diorama. NO chance of that being done by April 1st of course.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Your a busy man Kit, and I guess the APT-T could also be seen as a potential Whiff (all be it an expensive one on OO)
Good luck to you and those involved in this exciting project of what could have been a winner.

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

It's certainly a 'Project Cancelled', and after a few suggestions at Telford last year my APT-E model may appear on the PC stand this year.

Okay mods, I'm in need of a ruling again. This was a fully built model, 50 years ago. It is now far from it, as you can see, and missing sections that will need to be fabricated from scratch. It is also going to undergo some significant sawing.

So, eligible? (Half-hoping no, I've already got a lot on my plate :blink: ;D )

It's a yes.

Good luck getting all that paint and the decals off.

4 1/2 Days left!
In light of Weaver's recent family bereavement please direct any final questions, issues and requests for an extension (accompanied by the appropriate bribe) to me rather than to him.

Well, if amicable and others need it, I suggest an extension. I'll certainly not be making the initial deadline, yet, am positive I could get it (my lone project) done with another week or so.

 :mellow:

All bribes are already on record.  ;D

Well, we have already had a discussion on this subject and in light of the fact that the One Week GB is running 9th to 17th June I have been authorised to offer an extension of one week (we don't want to overlap building periods but feel that having the Cold War vote running at the same time as the One Week build is acceptable if we all channel our feminine sides and multi-task).

So, deadline is hereby extended to local midnight Friday 07-06-18.

Good luck to all of you still building.

51 1/2 hours to go, Melbourne time.
A bit more if you're West of me, less for the Kiwis.
