I'll have to get on to mine, and build it this month coming. Want to join in on this, just been trying to finish off a few half projects lol.

Once Tirpitz has been done will get on to it. It's only 1/72, so shouldn't be too hard to get done within time :)

Im gutted I dont see myself getting mine out of the box before then.
I may have made more promises to Sigs, GB's etc than time actually allowed.
I now have a dedictaed hobby calender so i can see how long these thiungs run so I can plan better.

We are now down to 2 weeks left to the close of the GB. As we currently only have 3 A-4s in the completed models Gallery, does anyone want to see an extension for this? My 1/48 OA-4 is masked, but I know I won't be done in 2 weeks. I am proposing a 2 month extension out to 22 August for those who are interested. If anyone is keen for an extension AND believes they can be done in 2 months, let me know. This will be the ONLY extension if it goes ahead.

I thought there were more completed? I am almost finished my 1:72... though I don't think she'll be winning any awards lol. I don't mind either way... I cam in half way through this build :)

To my regret I don't think I can do one even before 22 August but I favour the extension 1) just in case I can & 2) to allow as many as possible to contribute.
Have my heart set on building an Argentine Falklands War Skyhawk A-4Q (whatever that is?) using Aztec decals.
Even with a 22 August deadline it would be a last-minute rush job.
Mainly I am so enjoying watching other people's builds for this GB.

That would be an "aye" from me to the end of June at least due to my builds progressing nowhere near as quickly as I would have liked them too. Want to have them done by the end of the month though so I can get stuck into this year's club BSK.

Both OA-4Ms are progressing but due to other things taking priority (family, etc), June 22 deadline won't be met. Given that Armistice is November, so little time away, but aware that the BoB GB is kicking off, there is a one-time extension of two months, because I'd really like to see more of the entries finished, as well as getting at least one done myself. New end date (and final deadline) is now August 22. That gives you 2 months and 1 week to get your entries done. This shouldn't impact the BoB GB too much as anyone participating is likely to have already made build plans for that.

Thanks for the extension Craig, I too have had RL stuff get in the way so I have had no bench time in the last couple of months.
