    I appeal for a waiver on Biscuits behalf...

    I move that she be allowed to pick up where she was cut off in the last build!

    She barely had her Destroyer long enough to open it before her most unfortunate ordeal made construct & completion of her build utterly impossible. If she can produce a beginning photo showing it yet in relative beginning stages, I will certainly trust in her honor in its authenticity.

    What say you all?

      Not like my opinion really matters, but I'll belive her, and its Luft's choice anyway.

          I third that!

          Just a short note too. I've seen a few posts from members here who seem to think that their opinions are somehow of less value than everyone elses.
          I for one value the opinions of all members in this area of the forum and hope that the members who feel undervalued will take that to heart.
          Anyone needing self-esteem councelling should feel free to PM me.

            Waffle... to clarify... by "waiver" I mean that she be allowed - despite Lufts chosen subject for build 4. This would still allow Lufttiger the well won & proper choice of the build 4 theme, unencumbered.

            I can personally attest that the efforts & extent to which she went to acquire here model were a bit extraordinary, & I believe it to constitute a certain 'paying of dues', if you will. I believe we all might agree that the circumstances by which she was disallowed the opportunity to work on, or complete her build might constitute good reason for an acception, regardless of Lufts chosen theme. I also believe it would not lead to any significant disruption of the build, nor should it shape the theme of the build by the acception - if made.

            Just me thinkin...

              I think building something with a personal connection and giving the story behind it would be a great way to get to know something more about each other!

              Anyway, that's my idea.
              Excellent Idea Curt, I would like to second this!

                ...You think too hard....what i meant by it's luft's choice, was that he should have the final say, even if a lot of people don't want her....this is because Luft ids too nice to deny her

                  From the sounds of it, some of you guys are having the same issues I am!! My house is all tore up, the wife is hounding me to get it all finished as quickly as possible, and guests are coming in three weeks!! The best part is I can see the end of this, and should be free and clear within a month. Not bad for being in this condition for almost a year!! No room in our house has gone untouched!! Jeez, she's awfully free with my labor!!

                    Jeeze, this sounds like me and my project, only for me finished in a month would be a miracle.

                      I think the next build will go from Nov 1 to March 1. Are there any objections? It sounds like folks could use a break and some time to do other things, myself included.

                        Hmmm...6 months?, that would be too long of a drought for me.

                        I'm hoping to do 2 dio's between now the end of the year, only because its
                        winter time, best time to build!

                        But it really doesn't matter much to me as i will just keep

                        I might suggest a new build every quarter, that way if you miss one you
                        catch the next one. Maybe even use a model that you already built but
                        was side tracked due to life.

                        Like MZ KV-1, he should still be able to bring it in, or the Admiral's Battleship.

                          Either way, I want to see more of these two.
                          If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

                            Thanks for the vote of support guys! I never got started on it. All my pics are the pieces laid out in my former residence. Whether I get to use it or not, my ACG family has come through once again. Thanks for making this place soooooooooooo very special!

                              I agree with both of these, whilst it is nice to have a bit of order, above all, these builds are about having fun and learning. Nowhere else would I have a chance to 'compete' with such esteemed company. If we can't be a little flexible with the rules, this isn't the place I thought it was!!!

                                Sounds okay to me. Yes...I have life to attend to. Luckily, life sometimes includes modelling too.
