You can upload images direct to the forum, but they have to be a reduced size.

Thanks Mark, but you lost me att "reduced size" :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead:

Thanks James, the word SIZE comes into the conversation again (no sniggering at the back of the classroom you know who I mean :laughing-rolling: )

probably just bragging rights!

You want more than that round here??


or how about a badge of some kind we can put in our signature.

Surely the honour of winning is worth far more than any tangible prize?

You can certainly add text to your signature, although I’m not sure I can add badges.

Well, it's near the end of April. That's a 1/3 of the building time gone. My kit is about 1/4 done..... doesn't bode well.....
Morris is making good progress with his Memphis Bell, and some interesting looking extras.
Casper is a bit of a late starter, but pulling ahead with his lovely YZF-R1M.
James fell at the first fence with his Lanc, but promises to saddle up on a cut-away Panther.
WN2 seems to be chomping at the bit, but hasn't actually emerged from the starting gate yet!
Some more entries not started yet, but still in the running.
However, there's still plenty of time to pick that model in your stash, the one that's always been saying, Come on, build me! So come on, show us your best work.
Cheers
Mark

I've personally been very busy the last 6 months, I will post more on what I've been up to on here in due course. But as soon as I find some time for myself, and all goes well, I'm hoping to be a late starter, but will make good progress to catch up. However we already have some great builds in progress and a lot of pressure to match the standard :mrgreen:

Looking forward to seeing what you surprise us with Roy. I’m sure it’ll be worth waiting for.

Hi, I didn't make the "rules" but rules are rules
You must start it on or after the first of Jan, and the model must be completed and final pictures posted by 31st Dec 2019.

nothing personal.
W2 ;)
I know this won't make me popular but today I was "called out" for not being more "productive" with my entry.

I've not started on any build for the BOTY, so I've not broken any rules.

I do have a very busy personal life away from here too ;)

Just a quick reminder. We're nearing September, and 2/3 of the year gone. So far we have 2 excellent entries that are close to being finished. My H2R is coming on nicely, but I didn't get much done over the summer. A couple of others progressing slowly, but life, don't talk to me about life! I have this pain in the diodes down my left side, but does anybody care? (Yes, real life and family are more important than forum competitions!)

Anyway, There is still 4 moths left, so it's not too late to make a late entry for those of you who can build a bit faster than I can!
Cheers

I'm hoping to do a build, unfortunately I've just been super busy this year and yet to find the time for myself. Also the model kit that I'm after is still out of stock. I may have to go for plan B

Middle of August already and lots to do on my R1M :think: I have it boxed at the moment waiting paint but Zero smells pretty bad and its to dirty in my garden sheds. My plan was to have my workshop up by now but two large shrubs are testing my patients :violence-chainsaw: I think its time for the chainsaw. Once the base is down the shed can be delivered. I seem to be plodding along with my barn find as its easy to do in a small space in the spare room without interruption but things move around a lot :think:

Only 1 month left. Time for the stragglers to pull their socks up!! (self included!)

Voting will be by PM to myself with copy to Casper, Chill and Royjess.

Voting will run for 2 weeks, from the 1st to 15th Jan. All members are entitled to vote provided they were registered before 1st Dec.

I'll start a Finished Entries thread for the completed models. Entrants are allowed 1 post, to include a few photos of the finished model and a link to their build diary.
Cheers
Mark
