  • Crossovers are good.
  • Already started can be ok as long as there is not much started.
  • Any time period.
  • Must have progress photos.

It's kind of lonely in here.  I know there wasnt a giant interest but there was some.  Sad

I did some Phantome work today with sanding and filling.  I sanded down the horizontal stabilizers cause the Bs werent slotted.

I don't recall seeing any type of "GB Feeler"...I believe you are the only one participating. I only see your name on the rooster. I would join you, but I have too many GB's on the bench. Good luck

There was a feeler toward the beginning of the year.  There wasn't a strong interest like some of the builds but there was interest.

Consider the build closed then.
