Quarantine GB
« on: March 14, 2020, 08:37:57 am »
i just had an idea, it came to me as a joke, but i will try to be serious for a moment.
with the recent Corona outbreak, many people are stuck at home.
as modellers, we are prepared for the apocalypse so i propose the "Quarantine Group Build"  ;D

the goal, build as many models as you can, any subject, from start to finish, and whever has the most and best models by the time the quarantine measures are lifted wins. its kinda like the 1 week GB, but over an extended period of time.
on the bench:

-all kinds of things.

We're doing it already, it's called the 'In the Navy GB'.  ;D ;)
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! :)

I'm sure there will be a tad more building going on. I was hoping to do more restoration work on my motorcycles, but I seem to be spending most of my time fending off the disease with a steady diet of alcohol  ;D

That sounds good to me.

I have proposed to Mrs z that should we be required to self quarantine at home for two weeks due to exposure to a proven Death Flu victim we should spend one of those days drinking.

The likelihood of quarantine is getting closer.  The teacher of a child of one of the ladies at work is rumoured to have it.

To start with.   ;)  At our age the ratio of drinking to recovery days is running at about 1:3.  Out of practice I guess.  It's been years since I drank a slab (24 bottles or cans) in a day.  I used to do it annually to prove to myself that I still could.

At work, we are all getting so fed up with the constant fear mongering, stupid rumours, lies, and distortions about The Death Flu that between the hours of 10 to 11 and 3 to 4 all talk of it is banned.

So, you're back home from the frozen west? I hope all is well with you. We're all good here. Outside of walking up to the mailbox Friday and out to the shed yesterday, I haven't left the house. I've barely got me arse out of this chair. I did manage to lay in some extra liquid refreshments, just in case.

I like some of the thinking in this thread.  I myself have enough rum stashed to fill a bath but it's all really expensive stuff that I don't want to open!

I encourage this!  Although I cannot participate as my supplies and kits are packed away in anticipation of an eventual move, I am modeling vicariously through you lot.  So get to building!
In between jobs and homes.  New job starts soon, then search for new home, space for hobby room and display cases is non-negotiable.

I'd love a Quarantine GB, but the rules (Rule 6 possibly???) would stress that alcohol MUST be consumed. 
So I got that going for me...which is nice....
