Name:Classic Models Group Build

Dates: At your discretion

Mods: Worldslaziestbusker, Aaronw if he returns to the forum

Link to planning thread: http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=285339&st=0

Description:Models from an earlier time when kits were simpler, and a kid could buy a kit with the money made from mowing a few lawns. The GB will feature kits made in 1980 or earlier. Matchbox, Monogram, Frog, Airfix, Heller, Hasegawa, Guillows, Strombecker, Hubley etc.

Build them OOB with tube glue and brush paints or detail them out the wazoo and show off just how great some of these old kits really can be.

Many of these old kits were based on prototypes and guesses, and / or included the option to build variants that never were, so what ifs will be allowed.

Rule #1; remember why most of us started doing this in the first place, no not the glue fumes, because it was FUN!

Other rules

Kits must have been first issued in 1980 or earlier. A re-issue of an older kit is welcome as long as the date the of first issue was no later than 1980.

Aftermarket and scratch building is allowed.

Major conversions may require approval (rough rule of thumb, ask first if 50% or more of the kit is being replaced with aftermarket / scratch built detail).

What ifs are ok, but must be based heavily (50-75%) on a qualifying kit.

Any scale

Any subject

Any brand

Any material, but must be an actual kit*. Stick and tissue, metal and plastic, vacform, wood and of course styrene all are welcome.

*If anybody wants to go seriously old school and build something like a wood Strombecker kit the use of duplicate wood parts based on the originals would be acceptable as the originals are quite collectable and expensive.

Well seeing as my Start em' up GB is not gaining traction, how about a Star Trek GB?

It is 50 years come September after all. The recent Star Wars GB went ok. Time for a REAL Sci Fi GB.

Lots of ships out there that need building. I have a Enterprise and a Klingon that have been on the shelf for ages now.

Link.

Star Trek GB??

Any thing that belongs to the "Star Trek" universe.

Usual 6 month time frame.

Prefer it to start some time this year as 2016 IS the 50th anniversary.

I (phamtom) will be the mod.

I give it a yes vote. .....Go figure.

Luftwaffe GB - planning and poll

Description: any aircraft used from west german airforce from 1956 until today, including Heer and Marine aircrafts, too. Line planes, anniversary schemes, fly-outs, prototypes, even What-ifs, when there's a reasonable relation to Luftwaffe/Heer/Marine (allowance will be decided by the mod team in every single case). Also the overtaken aircrafts from former NVA airforce that kept on serving in Luftwaffe livery. Any scalé, any brand allowed, oob or huge amount of AM.

Let's have some fun! I'l look into some sponsors for the build.

Check with Neo, he is the only one with that power. But I thought it was September.

 

Pete and I are the little guys. That and I have next to zero computer skills, unlike Neo who knows what he is doing.
