Some of my Spitfires are like that - my scrap box is full of spares and incomplete kits.

It was one of the candidate 2020 GB options.

Believe folks can always start at theme build, not to be confused with the official elected group builds. While we don’t want too many group/theme builds running at the same time, a “clear the bench” theme might get some things across the finish line. Extra points for those a decade (or three) in the works!!!  ;D

They can indeed sir  :thumbsup: That was the whole point of establishing the Theme Build thread.

I was doing just a quick browse through the TB list and there may be an existing TB in need of revival. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Thinking about this,  I think that I proposed this idea in the last pole for ideas for the Group Build.
