It has been 100 years since the world was plunged into its first global conflict spanning 1914 to 1918.
To mark this, we will be commencing a Kiwimodeller Group Build, beginning 11th November 2015, and finishing on the 12th of October 2016.
The build is open to any scale and any subject that played a role in World War I.
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 12th of October, ending Midday the 19th of October. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.
I'll do my WNW SE.5a "Hisso". Hopefully I can find a Kiwi connection somewhere ...?
If there is time I might do something dioramatic as well.
Should be an excellent GB. Wish I could sponsor a prize.
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research
I'm pleased to announce, due to the generosity of one of the Kiwimodeller members, that there will be two prizes for the WWI GB.
One for the winner by popular vote on the kiwimodeller website, and the other as judged at Armistice in Cambridge 2016
More details to follow soon!!
I'm pleased to read this. Hopefully this will encourage participation in the WWI Group Build as in the Helicopter GB. We all need to contribute to the success of the KM site and the Armistice Model Show in any way we can.
I'm leaning in that direction already - heaps more info available , and a slightly easier build , and the bonus - it has a splash of colour to it.
I think I'll delay on this one for a few more weeks (my tiny brain is in overload at the moment).
