Ideas for Group Builds

Been thinking about what we could do as group builds that would accomodate a number of genres/subjects, and have come up with 2 ideas. Thinking they could go for 6 months each? The first starting after armistice this year and the second ending ready for armistice 2017 maybe...
Names to be confirmed but you'll get the idea

Across the ditch/Aussie GB
Anything that's in Aussie, or used to be.
Could be a V8 supercar, an Air Force jet, an army tank, a WRC car or something like an Australian police car.
Scale could be open to anything

Concept/Prototype GB
Something that is/was once a concept/prototype but never actually made production
Options could include modifying an existing kit, scratch build something, etc
We could have an allowance for this where as long as less than 5 were built it would be allowed, because 5 isn't exactly in production? So the Ferrari FXX wouldn't be allowed due to the number that were built, but the Ford GT90 would be allowed...but open for discussion...
Scale could be open for this too

The way I've set the poll means we can still see which ones hit 10 entries

Sorry Hadley, I just don't have capacity to take on another GB, as it is I'm finding myself just building what I want instead of what I "should" be building for the GBs. I don't want to tie myself down to something else that isn't on my personal list of things to build.

Maybe something for me next year.. But if it fits in with something I have planned. After this year, and trying to get through the GB's I committed myself to, next year I am going to try and go for "pleasure" and also "big" - I already have a good idea of the builds I want to do next year, all BIG kits...

I could be keen for the prototype GB, but only if it starts in the second half of next year. I've committed to several GBs that are underway, and a few more due to start later in the year.

I like the concept/prototype idea.
Maybe make it less than 50 units or something like that
The fact my Ferrari FXXK kit arrived yesterday has nothing to do with that idea, honest :-)

There are a large number of GB's already on the go Hadley and I personally would not be interested in another until next year, at which time I would be interested in the Something Aussie concept. Until then though, I suspect most of us have enough to keep us busy modelling until late in the year.

Couple of interesting concepts though ;)

Tamiya 1/24 Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI (1993 DTM) - "Built to Race" GB
Revell 1/24 '77 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 - getting the "Mad-Maxed" treatment - moving to the "Diorama" GB

I thought most of the GB's were finishing this year, hence why I suggested we start end of this year/next year. Did I misword that and everyone think it's this year?

I understood mate, hence why I was explaining that next year I will be doing my own thing :) I might do a couple of GB's, if they are within what I plan on building.

I can find the post that asks people to add their own Group Builds to the calendar system if that helps?

My comment was mainly for Hadley,
No point in pinning it, pinned posts still slide off the top and disappear, just look at the top menu (yes the one that no one looks at) hover over KM Events, select the bottom option and click "Submit an Event". You can choose to pick Group Build, Model Show, Kit release etc, It then gets approved and is added to the Calendar.
I try provide all the tools but no one uses them and then they moan that we don't have them............... sorry but it's very frustrating.

You could also look here www.kiwimodeller.com/index.php/kunena-2015-06-20/group-builds it has all the Start and End dates listed in each of the Categories.
It's all there and fairly easy to find, I've tried to make things intuitive but hey I'm not perfect. ;)

That's exactly what I was after. I'm too used to browsing the recent topics tab
Thanks Gary
Might repost this later in the year
