CBP!!!!......1 week = How many models????
Posted by Wolfangel on Sunday, October 16, 2011 6:25 PM

I needed to get some of my models out of the closet and onto the shelves.  After looking at what i had, i wondered how far i could really push myself and how many i could get done.......IN A 1 WEEK PERIOD OF TIME!!!.

I was actually surprised on how many i got done.  I was able to empty my closet of 13 models.  Some of the them are just simple snap togethers, some are pretty detailed and some are just out of the ordinary.  None of the models have any wiring or extensive detailing.  They were just fun builds to get away from the stress and grind of doing contest perfect, full detailed models. All of them have been painted the way they were suppose to be, and i tried to add little details that wouldnt take forever to do (eg: parachute cords on dragster).  So....

Heres my challenge.  See how many models you can build in 1 week period of time.  Now remember, dont have to do any contest quality stuff wiring (unless you think you can pull out 3-4 in a week) can even go and just paint the chassis and interior black if you wish......but try to have the outside looking good.  Do whatever you want.......street rods, customs, drag, stock.......doesnt matter.......just see how many you can get done.  The time limit for this is 6 months from now........April 16th 2012.  Now, you dont have to start this week........or even a week next month.........just as long as it takes you a week in that 6 month period of time.  No need to show in progress photos......and if you want to post them one at a time as you finish, that is fine.  But do post up a group picture at the end of the week you choose.  And by the has to be a full week.......NOT like 3 days this week......2 days next week.....2 days the next has to be a continous 7 days.

The models i built in this picture went from 1 sunday to the next sunday.

The models in the pic are.........

A skeleton (for mom), a Galaxie trailer, Grave Digger (snap together), a wooden car, The Orange Hauler show car, Pie Wagon show car, Ice Cream Truck show car, Tom McEwen Dragster (with parachute cords), Two Much double engine dragster, Monkee Mobile (for mom), a caricature Willys pickup, a clear Dale Earnhardt Nascar (half painted black, for mom), and a motorized jeep.

Have fun with this CBP......this could get interesting.  Go and clean out some of your collection.

My other works...hope you enjoy ---------

The Finescale Guys do something like this.  They call it 'Weekend Madness'.  Basically, you have from Friday to Monday to complete something.
