While I enjoy building models, for me this hobby really is a "spare time" one. That means I may have hours of building time available to me one week, and only minutes the next. A longer duration for a group build would be welcome.

I'd also like to see some greater freedom of manoeuvre in the level of completedness for a model's GB eligibility. Defining levels of completedness may be a challenge so possibly GBL's discretion could be the way to go...?

Yes, I for one would agree.

I can only agree with the suggestions others have made on GB length and % of kit started. While I tend to build fairly quickly, being a bit less under the gun might help me take more time when needed to make it not resemble the effort of a uncoordinated child.

Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank Mr Ratz and all the others that keep things going here and bravely step up to lead us unruly lot in the GBs.

I would agree that fewer, longer builds seems like a good idea. Maybe 6 two-month GBs every year? And sixthed. you're going a splendid job, Jratz.
