    Since most of the the builders could use the extra time,I think we should definately extend the deadline to the end of the month.It surely won't be a group build without a group! :D

    PP - you can allow this, this section is still yours in my view. I'm happy to extend, mostly because I need to! :oops:

    It might be a good idea to extend future GB's to eight weeks as well.So far someone always runs out of time.That really takes away from the fun of it.

    I'm glad we gave the GB a bit more time.There was something I didn't like about my TD.It was just missing something.I added a bit more weathering and that seemed to do the trick.

    It's amazing how much a little weathering adds to a model's appeal.

    Yeah ST I'm very glad we postponed the finishing date as well. The 30iest should do the trick, right?

    Wonderful pictures there JCalhoun! Great tank you made, and I sure like your tribute to Dennis there. Good work!

    I'm not sure I can make very good photographs of my tank since I'm going to have to use the 1.3 mpix automatic camera on my cellphone, which isn't very suitable for detailed pics. But I'm going to try! :wink:

    Thanks for the compliments.

    The paint is Testors Model Master spray can. Can't remember the exact name but I'll try to think to post it later.

    :(

    My model was all but finished. I decided I would put a dark wash over it to lowlight it, as I had done with my model for GB #1. However, for reason or reasons unknown, this time the wash caused that paint to wrinkle. I had to go to work before it was dry, and I rather dread what I will be going home to.

    Good idea! But unfortunately, that one's broken... :cry: :cry: :cry:

    too bad about your model though. Do you think you can fix it? maybe repaint.... sounds pretty hard though. Good luck with it
