G1 mentioned he would like to have several GBs running on site concurrently

Aircraft and armour tend to dominate the current subject topics

How about a NASCAR GB? I know several of the guys here enjoy building them

Probably not starting until 2nd quarter of 2016, but open to shifting the start date if there is enough interest

Discuss :woohoo:

I know Rick was keen to support an Auto GB maybe we/someone could whisper in his ear?
Nice bit of advertising for him, nice bit of support for us. ;)

Why not start it when they kick off their season with the Daytona 500 Feb 20th and finish at the end of the regular season Sept 18, just before the Case Elimination Series starts.

Yeah, I could be convinced...I have a couple of NASCARs in my stash and never been motivated to build them. This could be the trigger! :P

As I'm intending going kinda automotive with the Sci-Fi GB, this will be a balance to the nuttiness in that one. Interest expressed here . . . .

How about a slight 'tweak' ?? - Instead of limiting the GB to NASCAR cars, how about any motorsport vehicle ?? - any type of 'open wheel' racer, moto GP, rally, dragster, or stock car etc, etc. Really opens it up for entries from all over the spectrum, makes it a lot more inclusive.

And I'll say right here, I'm happy to moderate it if it goes ahead, but I'd like a 'wingman' aswell. Back to you good folks.

I would consider this, whereas NASCAR does nothing for me personally.

Too far the other way - needs some parameters otherwise it simply loses direction (pun intended), and becomes too difficult to moderate.

All sounds good to me, NASCAR is my favorite model building subject and I have plenty in stock that I'd be happy to a deal on for a group build and happy to work as a moderator too if needed.

As for opening it up beyond just NASCAR how about 'Circle Track' cars, that gives plenty of options (NASCAR, Indy Car, Sprint Car, Modifieds etc)?

That's interesting although does anyone know if the Super GT classifies as circle track racing as if so I may have something that qualifies

Yes maybe could have more more than one Auto GB e.g. Rat Rods, or Classic Muscle Cars, etc.
If this one was for Motorsport type cars there is a particular Funny Car I'd be keen to build.

I don't mind looking at Nascar models, I just don't build them, so If the topic was more general like "motorsport" as previously suggested or "colourful advertising on racecars" ;) I'd definitely be keen to participate.

I might be able to throw my hand into this one - even more so if it was open to race bikes as well (have one in mind thats down at the local hobby shop) - if not Nascar it will be (been near on 10 years since I built a Nascar)

I agree with Terry. It would allow for a vast range of things, including modifying cars to turn them into their racing equivalents. I would love to add some decal onto my 300SL to represent a racer from the past

How about "Race, Performance and Custom cars" nothing off the line is good enough?

I'm happy with G1's suggestion :P . It means I don't have to go buy another kit 'coz I got a couple of race cars in the stash :whistle: :lol:
But happy to go with the NASCAR theme too. Never have built one for some reason :dry:

I'm happy for it to diverge off into Race, Modified/Performance B) Especially if it attracts more participants :woohoo:

RED, I'm open to having motorbikes also :)

OK, let's tie this up neatly.

"Let's go racin' "

1 - A year-long Group Build starting date to be decided.
2 - Theme: Any motorised land vehicle (bike or car, bespoke or modified) that was used/is used in competitive racing in any scale from any era. Any material can be used, any after market additions, decals etc.
3 - Not included: Land speed record vehicles, hot rods & custom cars, 'What Ifs', these can all be catered for in another build at another time.
4 - Moderators: Myself and one other.
5 - Popular vote for best completed build (to encourage folks to finish their project), I will donate a prize (car) model from my own stash for the winner.

How's that sound folks ??

Ian.

To be honest getting any kind of GB for cars always seems a hard one to get over the finish line..... (pun intended) so seeing any kind of auto GB is a good idea.
Maybe another idea for a later date could be utility vehicles, which could include anything from military transports to Milk floats (Ian will know what they are) or Logging trucks.

I'll throw my hat in the ring for this one, wheeled vehicles have always been my preferred genre.
I've got hundreds of vehicle plans to sift through, so I'm sure I could find something suitable.
Dates etc. I'll merely live by whats decided.
