    Hi guys,

    Because our Admin set the first post of a GB entry as the one that is displayed on each page of a thread I would like to ask you for introducing a change to the post. Please post there the "header" for the entry only. There can be a picture of the top box with the art alternatively. However please remeber that a shot of 600-700 pixels in its width is enough. The entire rest of info like a brief history, images of sprues, decals , etc... should be uploaded with the second post. It will let us go through all pages quicker without displaying the long first post. I would suggest effectuating of it with the upcoming GB. The required "header" is known but here the reminder...

    ( Here an image of a top box optionally.)

    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Any of your help is appreciated.

    Good idea Wojtek and may I also suggest that we keep the header as short as possible with the GB title being 'Pacific Theatre WWII'.

    So and entry title would read as for example: 1/48 Spitfire Mk Vc Pacific Theatre WWII

    Great idea. I'd even go so far as to say that the picture could be on post 2 and to just leave the basic build text in post 1.

    Yes Andy you are right. I have thought exacly the same. Therefore I had suggested it as an option. Of course we can agree that the first post should include the basic info only. No problemo. :)

    BTW.. the new sectiion for the unofficial GBs is created. But I'm not sure if the process is finished. So please don't post anything there until I can be sure.
