Just three days to get your vote in.
Any one wishing to volunteer to be the GB Leader on this one?
As soon as this poll closes I'll be organising getting the start date poll set up and I'll need to have a GBL for that

The theme of 'Pre-1970' has been choosen
I'll set up a start date poll very soon.
We're looking at starting late September/begining of October
Watchout for the User Group being set up; you'll need join in to vote for the start date :shock:
Cortinasgalore has kindly stepped forward to be GB Leader :cheers:

Excellent stuff, I'll keep my eyes peeled, not a genre I normally model so should be fun :)

What does "Pre-1970" mean, Fred? Is it car kits produced by Airfix prior to 1970 or is it car subjects that are pre-1970?

The vehicle is Pre-1970, not the kit.

The poll to choose the start date is now up;
viewtopic.php?f=613&t=51321

To vote you need to join the Car GB via the usergroup.
Cortinasgalore will take over from there onwards

Where are all the builders who voted for the Pre-1970 subject?
9 voted and there are only a total of 5 have joined the GB, at least one of those did not vote for the theme

I assume you need to join the GB to be able to access the Start date poll topic, as the link does not allow me access - which seems a bit **** faced to me as none of the dates might be suitable for some potential participants.
Maybe an idea to post the poll dates on this topic so one can decide before joining.
