I will add to this list as and when folks join in. If you want to make any additions or deletions then let me know.
One other point, if there is a subject that you would like to do but appears to have been 'bagged', go for it regardless. I don't see any harm if we get stuff duplicated.

Well done to those who have started build threads. I know November is some way off but it will be upon us sooner than we anticipate and the Display Team do not wish to be staring at empty tables come the day, oh no. So sooner or later we might start putting some stick about, oh yes. On the other hand we might use blatant bribery and offer to buy beer and pies or pizza if you turn up with a model. Yup, that should do the trick.

Ignore that last bit, I thought now is as good a time as any, so the list is updated to the best of my knowledge.
I am trying to get my bench cleared to try and get some builds going - only 3½ months to go!
Best update it too add my E-Type.
I'll get a WIP thread up and running asap.

Come on folks let's see the build threads all up and running.
If you've pledged a build and for some reason cannot start or continue please let us know so that the Display Team can make their dispositions accordingly. We have 3660mmx1220mm of space available to fill up - that's 12'-0"x4'-0" in old money - which is a lot and I would like the bulk of it filled with sparkling Best of British builds, not Sean's East End Barrow Boy tat!
Even myself is going to try and get some stuff moving this weekend, no excuses now.

My U.S. owned company has decided to send an internal audit team to tear us apart between the 11th and 17th Nov'. I've been told that a stock take is occuring, and as it needs to happen during 'down time' it will be at the weekend.
The Belfast is looking good (to my eyes) and has about 5 hours work left, but it won't be getting to the show now.
Console yourself with this; auditors are bad enough, but apparently the internal form is the worst kind of zealot, and akin to the inquisition. Suffice to say I won't be enjoying myself that weekend.

Steve, we can arrange to get your model to the show if you get it completed.
OK, I don't see a problem with getting it done (unless I really **** up at the last), maybe I can drop it off with someone? Lets get it finished first, and take it from there.

Airfix Meteor F.8
Airfix Sea Fury
Tamiya Mosquito FB. VI
Despite there being a few already on the list, I'm leaning towards the Mossie. There are loads of Meteors down, the Sea Fury and Fulmar kits are a bit simple (I'd be building OOB) and I planned to save the Wyvern for the upcoming naval GB.
That said, if there's something you (Peebeep) would rather see in the display than I'll give that a go instead
