Built to Race
Start Date 30/11/2015
End Date 28/04/2017

The Build is open to all current members of KiwiModeller.
Open to ANY Scale of Model using any medium and any method of construction from OOB to complete Scratchbuilt.
ONLY Vehicles of four or more wheels, (excluding motorcycles and motorcycle-like vehicles (i.e. Quads and trike types)).
Depict ONLY motorised vehicles specifically designed and/or built to compete in any class of sanctioned motor racing events from any era, including Land Speed Record attempts. This may include Post Showroom modifications.
If possible, include written and/or photographic documentation of the vehicle/s you are depicting. Yes, we are looking to depict ACTUAL vehicles that have or do exist.
Artistic Bases/Dioramas are acceptable.
The model/s must be built in entirety within the specified build dates and the build should be accompanied by a thread in the specific “Built to Race” group build forum documenting regular progress. Post shots of your sprues, and documentation if you have any, 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 a minimum of five pictures of the completed build in the GB’s completed builds thread.
There is no entry fee for the GB, but a donation for the upkeep of Kiwimodeller is always welcome.

The winner of the group build will be decided by popular vote. Voting will run for seven days from the 28th of April 2017, ending Midday on the 5th of May 2017. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.

Moderators for this GB are 1/35th Battalion (D1 – David) and one other person yet to offer their services.

Possible GB End Date extension ?? was created by 1/35th Battalion
Hi all you automotive builders that have entered the Built to Race GB.
How would everyone feel about extending the finish date out to December 11th or longer, just to allow some folks to get their builds finished or even started ;) . Yes the original idea was to have these completed before Armistice, and if you have done so that's cool, but some have asked for an extension.

General feelings here please ;)

I, for one, would be happy as that will allow me to get something completed. :P

I'd be keen to get something done.
As for Armistice we've actually added some new categories around Autos so it's worth bringing anything you got.
We're up to 26 different classes so bring your junk you might just win something :)

I wouldn't mind an extention to the finish date. My kart project still needs some work to get it finished, but my Tomcat project has priority for the coming month illogical as that sounds with the group build finishing today. Its all about maintaining my momentum, what there is of it! :blush:

There're possibly cheaper options around but Alumilite do a range of products for model makers:

OK, so I have made an executive decision. Lets stretch out the finish date to April 28th 2017. That is a Friday so will allow time to get the requisite photo's up over that weekend. :P An extra 6 months should have many of us over the line by then. :whistle:
