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.

When I first saw the parts (and the fact that it's an old AMT kit) I thought this build was going to struggle to produce a result, but slap me back into last weekend it's scrubbed up a treat! Mint looking build Malcolm.

Have to agree with the others, the quality of the build is fantastic.
Also worth noting is the quality of the photography, very nice work on that to.
May I ask what settings you used on the camera?

Very very informative, and much appreciated. I'm sure a few of us will use those settings. I need to get myself one of those boxes... wonder if I can sneak it past the mrs lol

It is something I have never thought about building but looking at the results of you workmanship has made it see it in a new light.

Very nice :)

Cheers Michael

That looks awesome fantastic job. I really like the metal effect you got on the radiator etc. Also really helpful tips for model photography. My partner gave me a Canon EOS 750D for Christmas which I'm stoked about but don't have too much of an idea how to use as yet. I have perused Trade Me for some light tents and have considered getting some special lights (in the economy range) but from reading this I think my first step will be to get a tent set up.
