Heres the intro to the build we decided on for anyone attending the model show at Cosford. Please note this is ONLY to be participated in by attendees of the show, the idea being that a kit bought at the show and costing no more than £5 is the subject and that it has to be built pretty soon .Usual format ,ie.post sprue shots and box (if its got one!) but most importantly the price sticker! Gentlemen -start your engines!!

I'll be breaking every rule in MY book, but should make a start on my £5.00 build tonight, which will mean two builds going on at the same time. Not to worry, one has wings the other tracks, so I should be ok and avoid cross pollination.

Col, I know you haven't done many tanky things, but even you should be able to make sure you don't get your gun turrets mixed! Unlike Ian of course who seems determined to codge up some sort of aeroplane/armour mix in his 'Mustvan' build!

Yes please Ian. If agreeable to all, can I suggest just two simple 'Rules'

Cosford Attendees only.

Kit must cost £5.00 or less.

Colin, spare a thought for poor Ian. Not only does he seem to have lost the plot, but with the amount of stuff he ate at the Cosford S.M. Member's 'Lunch', he's probably still got chronic indigestion......

And it serves him right too. He even stuffed his pockets with left overs for his journey home!.....:hungry::hungry::hungry:

Right then.
In the User Created GB section there is now yet another section. Bought at Cosford. In this section we can add all the years as they progress.
I have made the build time the same as for the last one. So get on with it! lol

Dave, how is last years 'under a fiver build' going ?
Can't remember why I didn't finish it - there's only the decals, canopy and turret canopy to do. I'll get it done in the next day or so (I really must try to finish more of the kits I start!) and post it on my original thread if it's still there.
