Did you check with Matt Leese ( matt ). He's supposed to be the Group Build Administrator.

Jim



I did. It seems something is going on with AutoModeler and he seems to have lost his superpowers.



Well, that's not good.

Really who designs these things, a batch of drunken chimpanzees?

By the way D,I got to enjoy the superior engineering at GM today when I tried to replace a burned out headlight on my Silverado. I was afraid I was going to have to remove the whole grille assembly, not bad, ten #10 bolts, 4 clips, get in under the wheel well to remove a bolt then I can access the headlight connector???? Turns out all I really needed to do was disconnect and remove the air cleaner assy. Really who designs these things, a batch of drunken chimpanzees?

Now, if someone would administer the site or at least campaigns, that would help!


I have put my hand up for the admin role either for the site or just the campaigns, waiting on Darren (CMOT) and Jim (El Supremo) to get back to me.

Cheers, D



Great! There are a few kits coming out and I miss regular updates such as on Armorama...

Well, the admins are dragging their feet, but I think we have enough participants. I will be starting the official "Garage Queens" campaign thread. So post over there.

Looks like "Garage Queens 2018" is back on. A slight mix-up over on Armorama. I really want to see more activity here on AutoModeler and I figured a campaign would help.


More activity here would be great, more campaigns will definitely help and I have a few ideas.

Thank you!
The best way to get people interested is to not only have postings of our latest buys and builds but also have a campaign or two running.
If D does the administration that would help.
I don't mind leading this campaign if that would help?

superiority of the Chev/GM


Considering the 3 examples of GM hardware rusting in my driveway I beg to differ....



So, you have 3 pieces of GM hardware in YOUR driveway. Case closed 😎

However given the amount of fun on Automoddler I've had slagging Damien and Von Cuda for their auto preferences, I'm gonna miss that if I have to behave myself over with the tankers.



I know you are just mucking around and that you fully recognise the superiority of the Chev/GM brand over all others. You are obviously a highly intelligent and well-travelled individual and therefore could not possibly think otherwise!

The campaign is cancelled. Please join the "Unfinished Business 2018" campaign on Armorama instead. It is KitMaker wide.



I count 6 interested.

Who made you chief?

Damian is correct. Due to AutoModelers low numbers, only 5 participants are needed for Group Builds over here.

So, is this like kind of a go?

Jim



I haven't sent a proposal in because, usually, we need 10 participants. Not sure how many we need on Automodeler as there doesn't seem to be much traffic here.



It has been 5 here in the past.
