Welcome, Guest
Username: Password: Secret Key Remember me
We've had Aircraft and Armour Group builds before on Kiwimodeller, but never a dedicated ship building group build. Time to get your ship together!

The GB will be launched on 1st November 2016, and run until 1st November 2017.

It is open to any scale, and material

The model must be built in its entirety within the specified build dates and the build should be accompanied by a thread in the group build forum documenting regular progress. Post shots of your sprues at the beginning of your thread.
By the end of the GB (and no later than 24 hours after the completion date) participants should post five pictures of the completed build in the GB completed builds thread. There is no entry fee for the GB, but a donation for the upkeep of Kiwimodeller is welcome The winner of the group build will be decided by popular vote.
Voting will run for the week following the 1st of November, ending Midday the 8th of November. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.

Moderators will be Andrew and Declan (Gibbs)

Just to show that I am in fact doing something.. quick snap. added some more wave detail and initial bits of wake, then based it and added the ship because I now need to get the wake-line around the hull in place.

I'm completely not even a bit happy with the first bits of cotton wool based foam, but maybe I can pull it together.

No, more work on the water effects needed before I will be happy (and the other side of the ship!), finishing lacquer on the water, some final bits on the boat, then some kind of surround on the base.

Thanks kindly guys. encouraging that people like it.

Will repeat the wake blending on the other side then take some pictures, mobile phone pictures under a work-lamp are not the best!

I feel the blue if a bit too blue right now, but its probably a bit late to change it..

Man that sea looks awesome!

I should get something and build it for this GB, and try out that sea technique.

Quick phone picture, with some backlight to show the water effect a bit better.

Ive done more foam (which I do not like in fact, I dont think I will try cotton wool again) and finished the surface with high gloss.

next time a few more details and some proper pictures perhaps..

She is a bugger to photograph. Think I need to wait for a nice day and go outside for the final ones. first needs touchups, flags, base finishing.
