Some projects in mind ready to start, just waiting for the rules! ;D

Is it possible to show a nearly ended project?
Not in the contest. All entries have to be new builds, completely unstarted as of April 1st, 12:01 AM.

I should have time to get the rules up tomorrow.

Stand by...
ok thanks ;)

I'm going to give it a try this time, I actually have a few unbuilt kits in their boxes (really).
Now to choose one of the following.

1/350 Refit- Nope saving that for a long long build, may take years.
1/24 pickup- Had planned on converting it to a space pickup but never found an astronaut
1/48? B-24 bomber- This could be a great build, nice and big with plenty of details
1/1000 TOS Enterprise- great ship but I hate the snap together aspect
1/1000 Klingon- as above

Your pic is packed with sheer awesomeness, Grendels!! So excited for this! My Armor entry will probably be blown away by the rest of you pro's, but I have a feeling that my vehicle entry could be a contender! So excited!!!! Did I mention that? ;D

Well, I have a short list compiled with 11 kits, Id like to do 1 or 2 entries for the GB depending on the complexity of the kits I chose. Well, I got a week or so to think about it.

I would say, I pulled out of the Stash about the same amount of kits as you Carsenault.... and trying to pick ONE That would be "fun" to build for the next 3 months...? and not something I already did... is a little harder to do than I expected!

Fun is the name of the GAME !!!

THE GREAT PUMPERNICKLE STANDING BY!!!!!!
Did you know that pumpernickel roughly translates to "Fart Goblin" ?? :)
I'm anxious to find out about the guidelines. Thus will be my first entry and I can't wait !!
I think my wife would agree with the fart part. ::)
Anybody remember Daffy Duck as the Great P-P-Pumpernickle.
I guess Nickles bread has Fart Goblin Bread? ::) Mmmmm! Moist and soft!

Actually, Airmedical, Daffy was the "Scarlet Pumpernickle"

Definitely ready for this to all get started. Need to finish final planning on mine, but I know where I'm going with it

The short list went to 12 possibles, before being whittled down to 6, 1 auto, 1 armor and 4 aircraft. Im not a quick builder, but 3 of the aircraft I could easily do in the alloted time, the remaining a/c and the 2 targets might take a little longer but I could complete on time if I pushed myself. Im kinda taking your advice Norm and narrowed it down to items I have wanted to build for a long time or ones I havent done in a long time.

Carsenault, try to lessen the number of kits it would give you enough time to focus on your entry, just in case :)

Aaahhh, the pressure is driving me nuts. I'm going through my stash trying to pick a kit plus I'm putting in an order to spruebrothers soon so I was thinking maybe one of those kits that I'm ordering. Its like a chinese menu!! Lol I'm sure I will settle on one soon.

Exactly. Gotta pick two that I can actually complete. I have one chosen...just need to determine the second. Don't want any epic build...just normal.
