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 know I've shared this before, but I grew up with Mephisto in the Queensland museum, having a look over it on many occasions. They had no idea how important it was having sitting outside under a roof (thank goodness). It was only when the new museum building was completed and a whole lot of research had been done by one of the staff (I remember him and another climbing into it and so forth), that they started to restore and display it properly. It is basically the only real deal in the world. Way cool. I'm really looking forward to these builds. On another note, I've also said it before, but I can't believe these guys went from this dreadful AFV to the ones that conquered Europe so quickly, and the Brits, who lead the way, dropped behind so far until the coming of the Centurion
