50th Anniversary of the 1st Lunar Landing?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Happy New Year!

 

I've just posted a thread for a Group Build on the General Discussion page, to celebrate the 1st Apollo Moon Landing ... how many of you would be interested in participating.

I have to figure out how to include the poll ...

 

If, however, the mods, due to this short lead time, do not approve the GB, I'll just start a thread here and we can contribute our builds to it.

Happy New Year to all of you friends!

I may not be able to participate but I'd love to follow you guys and your great builds! "Failure is not an option"

 

Cheers...Ron

I have a build currently underway for Apollo 50. I'd like to include it in the group build. So the answer is, YES!

I like the idea but I don't think the build i'm planning at present will be far enough along to participate? In saying that I still hope to have it finished by July so if you take late comers I'll be in.

Wombat ... the Group Build is intended as a bit of an incentive to complete a model. If you participate and it gets completed ... BONUS!

If not, complete it when you can ... eezy peezy ...  ;- )

 

When it starts up, whether on this Forum or in the Group Build Forum, feel free to throw your hat in the ring! Love to have you!

 

 

Gents, I just figured how to include the Poll, do me and the Moderators a favour and go to the General Discussion page and 'sign' the poll ... not the one here ... that thread is 'unofficial' ... :rolleyes:

 

Thanx

Pete

Cheers, Pete. At this stage I'm unclear just when I will be starting anything physically but I will be happy to jump in once I do have something in my hands.

I've been a reader of the ARC forums for a while but haven't posted much.  But, I have just started a Saturn V build, so sure I'll join a group build.  I voted in the poll in the General Discussion forum.

 

I haven't built a Saturn V since I did the 1/200 AMT version years ago.  I've got the Monogram and Airfix kits that I was thinking about bashing together along with the New Ware detail set.  I did the Airfix Saturn IB a couple of years ago. I added the RealSpace Apollo spacecraft to it along with some scratch built details.  I think it came out fairly well.  I'm sure there is going to be a lot of plastic dust created with the Saturn V build.

Thinking about it... a lot. I have at least two Saturn V models I want to do. One, the new Estes 1/100 kit and second the monster Dragon 1/72 offering. Although I may scale that down to a Revell 1/96 or a 1/144 offering depending on how much accurizing I feel comfortable with doing on the Dragon kit. If I do the Dragon kit out of the box it looks like a very straightforward build. But I just can't help to tweak things a bit if I can.

It's nice to have you all aboard! ApolloMan, as205 (Welcome as205! ), Lunokhod 2 and ... Jay.

I haven't seen you on these boards in forever Jay ... nice to see you're still around!

 

Make sure you all place a vote in the poll on the General Discussion page, as that's the only barometer the moderators have for making this an official Group Build ... i think we'll need 15 participants minimum ... but as I've stated prior, if it doesn't get 'official' recognition, we''l just do it right here on the Real Space forum.
