Looking so far like Not My Comfort Zone isn't in enough people's comfort zone

I can only speak/write for me, of course, but it reflects what I do anyway, so it isn't a novel approach.

I think it's a novel idea and worth revisiting.  Was really hoping to see this one, WHIF, & Raiders make it.  On the flip side, I don't feel too many obligations going into next year so I can just wing it as I go.  :wicked:

I think we should give it another try. After all there are loads on here saying that they have bought a kit and are too scared to build it for one reason or another, and this would give them a chance, and get guidance on the way too!

 

I will sign up again if you decide to try.

I'm still off licking my wounds and having a bit of a sulk :)

 

I will resurrect it mid next year and see how we get on again. I still think it's a great opportunity for people to broaden their horizons. But I suppose that, ironically, if you are prepared to get out of your comfort zone, you don't need to!

 

Thanks,

Adrian

  • AdrianMF changed the title to Not my comfort zone GB - "I'll be back"

It would be nice if there was some scope available in the GB voting to allow some of the more unusual topics to grt covered rather than the same old same old each year, but then its a popularity contest so the same or similar ideas will always get the most votes :(

I think a "not my comfort zone" GB should be mandatory every year 🙂

2023 is the earliest that repeat of the 'Anything but Injection GB' can be proposed for an encore. I had been toying with it, but I've decided not to put up a proposal so as not to detract from this.

The irony is though that peeps who do vac-from, resin etc probably find it quite comfortable and so it won't garner many votes for this one- unless they all try these new fangled IM kits!!

I’d have to agree, it’s good to go do something different within the hobby. 
 

I shall be building a Titanic for big and British but my Wallace and Grommet motorcycle and sidecar still needs this GB! :)

Come on @AdrianMF

This is far too good a subject to be left in the also ran pile.

Ladies and gentlemen,  let's get our collective fingers withdrawn and get this one over the line in its rightful place for next year.

Cheers Pat

I agree Pat.  I just pushed myself with a motorbike kit (and deliberately chose the more challenging of the two bikes in my stash) and I'm very satisfied with the result.  I've still got a few kits that scare me slightly so I'd definitely be up for a group build.

I will resurrect this one soon! I’m starting a century series fighter (no propellers!!) so I’m in training already!

 

Regards,

Adrian

Hello @AdrianMF, I still have the same one and only short-run kit in my stash waiting for such an opportunity (Azur 1/72 Renard R-31). Or maybe I'll go for something with wheels or tracks instead of wings.

 

Regards.

Pat.
