WWI Group Build

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.

Moderators for this GB will Andrew and D1 (David)

Update time

I tell you what, the tracks on this are a little nit of a nightmare :S They are of snap together variety. I'm going to have to glue a few sections together, as I have managed to break the pins :evil: If I was to build another of these, I'd seriously look into some AM tracks :whistle:

I've completed one side of the tracks, I'm having a break before attempting the other side. In the mean time. I got a coat of matt black primer on :woohoo:









Felt good doing some painting though I now need to order some paint for the body colour

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