× 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)

A rather late entry into this GB, but since I picked up this Academy kit as a prize at Armistice last year I figured I should probably do something with it for this year.



I picked up the wooden deck & PE set from BNA world, both of which are new things for me to work with so stay tuned for a bunch of noob questions, superglued fingers and a likely chance of the whole kit being thrown through my mancave window.

Oh nice! I've always wanted to build the titanic. LED set, does it come with the LED kit as well? If so, that's pretty damn cool.

Looking forward to watching this one come together.

Yep this one comes with the led kit but it is extremely basic. Effectively the light effect is just light leaking through the portholes.

Ah I see... wonder if you can use some fibre optic and utilize that somehow...

I'm sure that's a possibility but its a big nope for me. I've already spent more than the value of the kit just on the wooden decks & main pe set and may still spend more on pe railings. No way I'm sinking any more into it until next year, when I'm planning on upgrading it from a static piece to a diorama featuring the iceberg.

Shame! This build still hasn't gotten into the starting blocks unfortunately. Damn Warhammer 40K release.
