Sci-Fi & Fantasy Group Build
The main criteria for this build is to have fun!
(Build dates: Saturday 24 October 2015 - Saturday 15 October 2016)

Proudly brought to you by Kiwi Modeller in conjunction with Mighty Ape!

The Universe is vast beyond measure, and within it exists untold dimensions. Beyond these is “Te Kore” - The Nothingness. In between the reality of our existence and Te Kore “The Kiwi Modeller Sci-Fi and Fantasy Group Build”!
Parameters for this Group Build
Pretty much any subject is allowed, as long as it’s not real. Examples include Gunpla / Macross / Gundam, TV/movie models, Warhammer, Apocalypse, Steam Punk, Sci-Fi, Bio-Mechanical, Fantasy, Figurines (not based on real people). Out of box, aftermarket and scratch built all allowed. 3D printed items are also allowed but must be totally created by you, not edited from someone else’s work or had elements imported. No partially started kits or work allowed. Entrants must have been be KM members for at least 2 months. Normal vetting for any cynical entries as usual.

All entries must have a build log posted in the group build forum presenting regular progress. Judging will be by community vote and possibly guest judge (to be confirmed). Prize(s) are also to be confirmed. Entries are welcome from KM members outside of NZ and if you win a prize you just need to pay the international shipping. Voting will run for the week following the 15th October 2016, ending at midnight on the 22nd October. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote. An affordable donation to Kiwmodeller.com is always much appreciated from those participating.
Thanks, and Enjoy!
Moderators are Paul (PJNZ) & Kane (Grover)

I couldn't help myself. After watching all the fun the others are having, I checked the stash, and found this kit :woohoo:

Got several ideas to try. Think I'm going to go through a bit of plastruct and evergreen styrene :whistle:






It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Dang, so much for being the only Post Apocalypser :lol: ;)
Definitely need PLENTY of Evergreen styrene; Prior to starting my build I had a single packet of Wall-Cladding sheet, and now I have 22 packets of various thicknesses and sizes of sheet, rod, tubes, beams, angles and so forth. :P Have fun Andrew . . . :)

On the Bench:
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

Don't let someone dim your light simply because it's shinning in their eyes !

Cool look forward to this. If you wanted to make it look a little more peaced together from parts you could have the tray from my chevy. I won't be using it and it'll most likely end up in the bin once i finish the model


Rob

No model left behind even if it screams all the way to the display shelf!

Currently hacking away at:
1/24 Tamiya Mazda RX-7 S4
1/25 Revell Datsun 720 Kingcab Rebuild
1/24 Hasegawa Mitsubishi Galant GTO MR race car
1/24 Fujimi Nissan S14 Silvia (early)
1/24 Fujimi Autech S14 Silvia (late)

Great base kit for a build like this, and considering those old Revell kits take a lot of work to make into decent cars 'doomsdaying' it up is perfect.

Stand aside caffine, this is a job for alcohol.

Made a little bit of progress here, trying to get the body rolling, so I can work out placement for additions and changes to the chassis B)

Not much to report on this one :blush:

Been playing with the exhaust a bit, thinking how best to modify it, but have been a little preoccupied with a few Tomcats :whistle: :lol:
