    I've had the kit for years and was inspired by the Fine Scale Modeler article to try it someday. This GB is a good excuse to start.

    user name: aurora-7
    first name: Mike
    category: intermediate
    scale: 1/48
    manufacturer: Monogram
    extras: Convert from an F-80C to a P-80A

    While I look forward to the conversion, I have to ask, which G.B. do you mean?

    Sounds good. But please edit your your first post and add the correct header if it is your entry for the GB.

    Apparently I can only edit the body and not the header, unless I'm doing something wrong.

    And how should the header read?

    It's fixed.... However, you need to add the info as to username, name, kit, scale, etc.... to your first post. A pic of the kit would be nice too.

    Are we a little early here?
    I thought this GB was not due to start until February 1st - there's still two months to run with GB 16.

    .

    Yes, it's a bit early, I suppose, to start talking about it but I started looking through the forums late last night and just got into the mood for it.

    I won't start until February 1st.

    No problem, not your fault - just curious as to why the GB section has been opened already.
