Hello all,

I have requested to Guntruck that the campaign be extended to Dec. 31st, as previously discussed.

Is there any progress on a secret or Monster? I 've got a secret I just started on, doubt I will make the May deadline, but will definately get it done by Dec. 31st. Promise!

Does anyone have any ideas on a ribbon?

To me, this is good news and bad news. The good news is that I'm sure I can finish a model by year's end so I can join T2K6.

The bad news is that the topic is the same..."Secrets and Monsters," of which I have none and almost don't care to pursue said topic by buying a kit for it. So even with the extension, T2K6 isn't in my interest to join.

Is it possible to add a second or sub topic after May 31st to T2K6's "Secrets and Monsters?" I can't think of a topic right now, but I am open to discussion.

Good to see quick responses.

Well, even if we are denied an "official" extension, I plan to award ribbons to anyone who finishes up to Dec. 31st.

Second, the "secrets" part of the campaign was meant to open it up to those who did not want to do too much...basically prototypes and field modifications.

Something it could be woudl be a BMP-1 with a modified turret for some exotic ERA. Or a M2 Bradley with the rear chopped down and a ADA station on it. Rather than seeing a updated Panser II from a museum, I was angeling towards seeing disparate or future tech applied to a short run or one-off vehicle.

Hope that helps!

OK! The extention gave me breathing room to enlist.
After failing to deliver something for T2K 2005 I try this year to come up with something. Think I go for an "One off's". But no Subaru :-)

I alredy put a post about my progress, but Im happy to see the intention to extend the deadline (the progress in the paint has been slooooooooow)

Here are the pics my "one of a kind" entry (that was suppose to be one of the possible entries, right?=

Ohoh, Matt, that sounds bad...
We all have those times, I guess.
Best is not to try for a while and set your mind to other things. Than, all of the sudden, before you know it, you find yourself building some kit again!

Take care!

I think I may enter this one. I have a "Secret and Monster" kit that has been on my workbench all along and I just didn't see it!

I'll cook up a short story too...
