Hi guys,

This wonderful anniversary gift from my wife, in the last few days, will be my contribution to this group build.

It will be out of the box, and all about the fun of it... :>

Hi Jason

Thought it'd be ok to put what I'd be building out there now though? Not too soon I hope?

Not at all Glen, it's good to see what people are doing. Just thought I'd make sure everyone knew not to cut any plastic yet! We normally wouldn't have the GB section up and running so far in advance of a GB, but Joe asked could we do it and we're happy to oblige. But I thought a reminder of the start date wouldn't hurt! :)

Was reading that stuff from Joe, in regards to getting the GB going early, for rules etc. Fair play, that suggestion list is a great idea too. Appreciate you getting it all up and going and the heads up on start lines etc. No worries here, my glacial build rate will have you urging me on more than reigning me in :>

Hey Joe,

Was on sale through ID models I think, wife grabbed it for me. Yes, it'll certainly be a big model. Not adding to it, detail wise, will be a struggle, great canvas for it...

Love me a Cat. If you feel like getting adventurous with the decals, there's a shedload of great schemes out there... Bestfong do some Taiwanese ones that look very sharp, Print Scale and FCM have cool schemes, too. But the OOB scheme on that kit is excellent, too. Basically, you can't go wrong with a Cat.

Hi Woolley,

If I do change something, it'd be the decals, only to splash out on the finish as the in box decals are cool.

I do like the post war box cover scheme, with the yellow accents/numbering etc.

Let's not hijack Glen's thread anymore, we can focus on his Catalina in this thread, and the duel can move to the Chat thread. :)

Thanks...
