This time you can finish and old model you had already had started. Dr.Cranky will let us know what else will be allowed on this one. I my self have decided to build a semi truck.

Thanks, Rick, for getting us back into another one

Another 3-DAY BUILD, and this time you can build either something new or a project that's been sitting on your bench neglected.

There are no rules for this, but you can follow the same guidelines:

Saturday = cleaning up and primering the parts

Sunday = Painting

Monday = Assembling and detailing.

Working through the night is allowed.

Post all your progress pictures here to this thread.
Start thinking about what you will do, and you will have plenty of ideas by the time the 3-DAY WEEKEND arrives.

Doctor I think I will participate in this one. I work Saturdays until 4:30pm so I might need a bit of leeway if possible.

Cool. Again, no rules, just stress-free building. Well, other than the time constraint! :lol:

Here is a little twist that may, or may not, be appropriate for this build……being that it is Presidents Day weekend that this build is being proposed to be done over, what if the build had to be a vehicle with the same Name as a President? You know, Lincoln…..Ford………Cadillac (well, they still ride in them)......Chevy El Camino (Bill Clinton famously had one before his time in the White House….it had Astro Turf in the bed out back, just in case of an emergency pit stop with a cocktail waitress).

I know it limits the build subject a bit, but it certainly is relevant, isn't it?

Plus, I wonder how many of you remember (and miss them!) the days of having 2 Back-To-Back 3-Day Weekends when we celebrated Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays. Of course, Congress put an end to that!

I'll join into this one.

It will likely mean I have 2 kits finished by the end of this one. I am proud to look at my completed Trans Am from last weekend.
