    I ordered this kit last night. Had some technical issues with the checkout but I think I have them resolved and hopefully the kit is on the way. If I can get it in a timely fashion, I will try and get it done and posted for the contest. I'll let you know as soon as I know for sure myself.

    Hi all

    Well we are into the last few hours of this and remember there will be NO extension for this one, even if your cat went made and used it as a play thing :twisted:

    So the bottom line is if you built it post it!!

    Have fun

    Hi Rob,

    It seems to be a little to quiet in here ,so is it too late to take part in this competition? If not, I'm just printing the kit out. How much time is left?

    Regards :p

    Hi Falcon

    If you can put the model together by Midnight Tonight (site time, not local time) then it might be a little late!!
    It is possible with Nobi's models.
    Lock yourself in a room and turn the phone off, ear muffs on and go for it I would

    We shall see what happens tonight if competitions are worth doing :shock:

    Have fun with the kit it is a cracker build

    Hi all

    As the site clock is well past midnight and now into March, GAME OVER!!

    Not one taker :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

    It seems that competitions are not worth doing

    Don't get too discourage Rob.......... I think the idea of model competions is great. I started Nobi's C-130........twice........and messed them up both times. Not because of Nobi and his design......just my newbie ineptness. I still have the second attempt next to me...... and when I figure out how to fix my mistakes I'll get it finished.

    We have a lot of new guys (myself included) here and competitons would be great for us to learn from.

    So don't give up on us too fast. OK?

    Hi John

    No problem, just a shock thats all!!

    As I had two of the kits, thinking like a nut that one would go.
    The spare kit is now on the e-Bay, it might as well go to some guy who wants it.

    Keep going with Nobi's bird its worth it, I will post some build photo's of mine soon

    I started early enough, but then I had a lot of other things to do, thinking there is enough time left. at the final session I get messed up with the joins of wings and fuslage so I quit, I will finish it certainly with relaxed schedule :lol:. as nobi said, the kit has some small flaws, perhaps there should be more parts to fit the shape(main gear), but overall it's impressive still with no outer wings and engines.

    Hi Rob and John,

    I think the time given was a bit too short. Well,at least for me. With a bunch of unfinished work on the desk it's sometimes difficult to find time to work on our hobby. I really try to build them but often I'm too tired .In such a case it's the best to put away the cutter and rest. Maybe I'm getting old :oops: .Anyway I hope that the contest goes on ( even a bit later maybe)
