I'd like to come in with some war stuff ... an F-104 G Starfighter (Luftwaffe) in 1:144

Actually, there's a birthday party of a nerd (me) on Friday and I'm not sure how I feel on Saturday ... but I'll give my very best ;)

I'll show the current status on my gallery ... > HERE

EDIT:

Finished after 16 hours.

i have never done a 1/144 scale plane....maybe one day, also i have never made a starfighter and only 1 kit in my collection, the very old Mbox kit.

Starfighter does nothing for me, such a ugly plane :-)

thanks guys!

I hope to finish that job within 24 hours.

I can't start on Saturday morning. I'll sleep till noon and hope to get my head clear ;)

I guess, I can start in the afternoon or in the evening. We have 24 hours, right?

So I have to finish the build on Sunday in the same hour as I started the build on Saturday?

For example: if I start the build on Saturday at 8 PM, I got to finish it on Sunday at 8 PM.

Is that right?

well ... fortunately, I've bought a hair dryer this week :D

You are correct there. 24 hours at any time over the weekend.

sounds cool. I try to show each step in GMT time ... except it's something around noon or midnight because I don't know to use AM and PM when it's after 12 (noon and midnight). I'd like to use the 24 hours time instead of AM/PM. Would that be ok? In GMT of course! I only have to subtract one hour from CET. I would write 14:30 GMT instead of 2:30 PM GMT.

is it possible to move some 8 hours sleeping time between those 24 hours? I can't work around the clock :(

EDIT:

it's ok. I'll take 2 x 12 hours.

From Saturday 12:00 (noon) to Sunday night 0:00 (midnight) ... first 12 hours.

Then I go to sleep.

And then from Saturday 12:00 (noon) again till 23:59 ... 2nd 12 hours.

That's 24 hours excluding some extra hours to sleep.
