Im in!  I wanted to do this last year, but the wife had some health complications and we also had so many projects with the podcast stuff.  Just have to pick something out.  Leaning towards J.J. Hollander's Gym by FOS, but will decide in a few days!

Only a few hours before the challenge starts. Where do we post our build threads?

Ready to start - I found the box on the shelf so I can open it for pictures tomorrow.  Are we going to do individual build threads in the kit build area like we did last year?

Okay, OK, I'm in on this one as well.

It won't be a FOS or FSM build but it will be something different. Haven't decided to scratch, kit or kitbash.

I'm up to my elbows in scenery now.

I'll keep ya'll posted.

Hey!  If the deadline for filing income taxes was extended from April 15th to July 15th does that mean we have until July 15th to finish our Winter Build Challenge?   ::)  I already filed my income tax returns (and sent them my payment) but I haven't finished my Build Challenge yet.   ;D

I agree with Bob. It will take until July 15 for me to finish my challenge build.
