Welcome to the third Blitzbuild for this year.

 

The Christmas Blitzenbuild will commence at 0001 on Thursday 26 December and will finish at 2359 on Sunday 29 December.  These times are local, so if you live in New Zealand or Australia, you get to start earlier than the rest of us.

 

Although the Blitzenbuild lasts for four days, you only get 24 hours to complete your build.

 

his can be done in two ways:

1.  The Superhero Option   Complete your model in a single 24 hour time slot

2.  The Other Option      Complete your model in two 12 hour slots, seperated by no more than 12 hours.  Still pretty heroic, if you ask me.    You can start on any day and finish the following day. 

3.  The Dad's Army Option      Is your home going to be invaded over the Christmas period?  You can put up a heroic resistance, just like the Home Guard would have done.  Simply build in timed mini sections over the days but not exceeding the 24 hours. It would be good practice to provide a photo of time at start and finish of each section

 

Start a WIP thread with a start photo showing the time, ( a mobile phone/tablet screen/computer screen will suffice), then as many progress pics as you want (but at least six) and finally a finish photo again showing the time.

Kudos points will be given for uniqueness of the clock, the on-plate presentation of the meals to be consumed and other things like great music videos etc. All the while remembering this is a family friendly forum ...

 

As this is a post-Christmas build, we also need to include bad cracker jokes from the previous day.  Extra kudos for anyone posting a picture of themselves building their model while wearing a Christmas party hat or a Christmas jumper. 

25% Rule: This is a short GB intended to showcase speed building skills with an unstarted kit. Therefore, the 25% rule is suspended for this GB. All kits must be unstarted, although removal of main components from the runners is acceptable.

 

All the othe usual GB rules apply, the most important being to have fun.  It's The Law!

There is now an addition to the rules.

 

This GB is about having fun, not about increasing family tensions at an already stressful time of year.  :thumbsup:
