Open it up to partially-started builds, pleeease, eraucubsfan?   It's the 50th anniversary - this is just the boost I need to continue working on mine and strive to make it to the finish line this time.   I'm sure I'm not the only one?

Thats fine with me

Opening up the GB to partially started builds, although not in the spirit of starting a build on a designated date, may increase participation. I was going to do a Tamiya F-14A that I have that I have not yet started. I also have a Tamiya D that I went as far as assembling the cockpit then stopped. Although I wouldn’t mind building the A, I would like to finish a kit I have started before diving into another. As crackerjazz said, this GB would be the kick in the rear to finish that kit and clear one off the “Island of Misfit Builds” aka the Shelf of Doom.

F-14 GB forum is set up....PM me if you need anything further.

 

PM me through the forums is better than e-mailing me.

 

I have added Shawn (phantom) as a moderator because he is the wise man on the hill here on ARC.

Would this qualify, eraucubsfan?  Here's where I'm at with my Top Gun F-14 twin build.   Cockpits are done save for the ejection seats and IP shrouds.   Intakes, exhausts and fuel tanks are painted up and main hulls glued together but will need some re-scribing due to sanding.  Have to look for the clear parts which I've misplaced.   I wanted to add scratchbuilt canopy details, add a flight crew, paint/weather the hulls properly and mount them in-flight on a base.   With my track record even a year is too short -- yes, even on a Tamiya F-14  : )     but it being the 50th I intend to keep plugging away until I get them done for the deadline.

How can you change sig banners? I can't figure out how to do it on here after the forum software was changed.

Click on your user name at the top of the page 

Click on account settings

On the account settings page, "signature" should be the last option on the left

We're doing this like the previous GBs were we have our own build thread going correct?

Of course. Just start a new thread here, like we always have.
