    The future of group builds?

    Funny you should ask. I just looked. A couple Voodoos, A Phantom (of course) a Iroquois in 1/32, Starfighter !/32, and Maybe a 1/32 Phantom E if I can find the right decals. But in between the first and second build I have to knock out a (Hasegawa) commission build that I want to take more time on.

    I just set up a poll. Vote early and vote often.
  3. Lets get our collective Group build mojo happening again. Vote yes or no. A nice simple Group Build using those simple Revell Monogram kits we all have in our stash. There is SO many possibilities, scales, eras. Add what after market you wish, don't add after market whatever. Unlike other recent GBs we will aim to get this happening quickly, like August 1. Lasts 6 months. Prizes? Well sure if YOU want to donate and mail them out then thanks. Build whatever you want. As long as you start with a reasonably fresh untouched kit. And of course show the photos as you build so we can all share, learn and enjoy. Kurt H and I will moderate. *******Its been correctly pointed out that we were going to do a couple votes for possible GBs. Right here is the one that Kurt and I will moderate if it wins. If you want to moderate another GB to what you want, then set up a poll and be ready to moderate it*********

    Right Kurt, lets do this. Neo, lets make it happen.

    As of now all I know I have is a 1/32 CH-118 Iroquois. (UH-1D) nice and simple but I am sure I can find something else.

    Right, I'll host a Revell/ Monogram . See if we can get our collective mojos back. Say, normal 6 months. Everything Revell/ Monogram. Aftermarket is ok. Lets say starting August 1.( Mostly as I have 6, 12 shifts between now and then and a camping trip up north.) Not giving out prizes unless someone wants to donate them. Anyone wish to assist? If not I can do it myself. Hosting a GB is not hard. You just have to show up once in a while. (at least once or twice a week.)
  7. Hey Shawn,

    I just noticed you posted the pic of an F/A-18F with Jake's VFA-213 decals.  It's very nice.  What blue did you use for the vertical stabs?  The blue in the lion's head seems dark on the sheet.  I was concerned that there was not going to be enough contrast with Insignia Blue.

      I used the directions but toned it down a wee bit with a slightly lighter blue mixed in.

    Actually, Neo told me this idea last week, you great minds seem to think alike!

    Neo, lets just start the idea you tossed to the two of us. Crank it out for August 1. We can run it. Keep that TopGun on line (it sounds good) with the mod who volunteered. Then crank up a vote for someone who wants to run a GB. Perhaps a couple guys step up, say I want "A Phantom GB" (who doesn't?) Guy 2 suggests "A Tamiya GB" Guy 3 suggests "Matchbox" The vote happens, one wins. (obviously the Phantom) Start the GB the first of the next month. Then every month , we vote on whatever GBs people want to run. One a month. Of course you can re-submit every month. Most will win one day.

    What did you just finish building?

    Finished another 1/32 Trumpeter Super Hornet with Speed Hunter decals. Both my big Hornets, both use Speed Hunter decals from the same sheet.....

    Hopefully Neo and Steve see this section. They hold the controls for a mod to start a GB section. We other 2 GB uber mods do not have that power. Don't really want it either. As for the moderator getting a prize.......Who is paying for it? Part of the reason of the 3 max on certain start dates was the huge influx of GBS we had going at once. Then not enough participation. Anyway only Neo starts these guys up and it seems he is a busy guy. Perhaps a couple other prominent ARC members might wish to step up as new uber mods.

    1/1400 Enterprise C

    But those 1/350 Enterprises are SO cool when built......CVN-65 NX-01, NCC-1701 NCC-1701-A

    I like the idea of quicker starts. While the interest is there. But the biggest thing we have noticed is some moderators simply not showing up. If you say your running something RUN IT.

    Seems the in terest has died down HUGE. Most of the recent GBs have lots of people SAY they are going to play, then don't. Lots who start...the cockpit, then that's it. Moderators who say they will run it then don't show up for a couple months. Had a couple recent that did good, but they seem to be few and far between. It's too bad as I really enjoy building to a theme.
