Boys and girls enjoy 1WGB19.  International moderating this year, partly in the UK, partly somewhere else.  Will sort the poll out on the Tuesday after the GB closes - I'm back from 'somewhere else' by then.
I won't be throwing my hat into the ring build-wise - my build rate at the mo is such that I can't manage the one year GB!

I am toying with a few possibilities for this one.  I'd like to build something other than an aircraft (1/48 armour is a possibility) but one of Airfixes new mould single engined fighters in an alternative scheme is tempting.

I do know what I'm doing and it's a Wiff straight out of the box, so relatively straightforward hopefully

I'd love to, but it's my revision period for a course I'm doing.  I'm on my second year of four, so I probably won't be able to take part until 2022! :o

If I can get my mojo going, I might do a self imposed 1 week after my exams in July.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Best of luck with the revision Mossie  :thumbsup: Something I haven't had to do for 42 years !!  ;D

Thanks Chris! I was a teen-ager when I last took one.  Unless I count the NEBOSH H&S course which was forced upon me, and I don't, :shudder:

Ive got to do it around work. Most do two modules a year, but my assessors decided my workload would dictate one module, hence the 2021 end date.  I would have liked to have finished it this year, but they were right and I'm finding it difficult to fit just the one in.  Enjoying it though. :thumbsup:

Maybe Dizz will get two done to make up for Mossie's absence?
;D

Best of luck with the exam.  I hated doing them (being a master procrastinator I am crap at revision) and when I finished my degree I swore i'd never do another again.  And so far I haven't.

I always tell myself, keep it simple, keep it simple.....and then I don't.   

Think I have a straightforward one this time, in a single color!

I will lose the Sunday due to Comic Con and the Monday due to Model Expo so I am going to attempt to build a 1/48 tank of the PDRV Republican Guard.  The plan is to glue it all together on Satyrday, prime it and then paint and weather it in the rest of the allocated week.
Wish me luck...

Thanks Fred!  I got seriously stressed this time last year, then did fine and felt a bit silly.  A few weeks ago I was starting to get like that as I was behind, I've caught up and had a word with myself.  Crazily, I'm already thinking what I might do afterwards.  o

When does it start?  And end?  I am actually either home or at the ancestral homestead for the next couple of months so I have a lot of bits and pieces available, even if most of the paint has gone bad.

Nevermind.... Found the other thread.  I am in. for something.

I've been suffering from a prolonged and deep loss of mojo (as some people may have noticed), however I have an idea which is definitely doable and may break this. On the other hand, I do NOT have the week off work, and some family stuff may take yet more time off me, so we'll see...
