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)

Great looking scratch building Yak. And funny you should mention Bishop's bench, I looked at mine yesterday and through the exact same thing. I even had to take a photo. I think we both still have a way to go before achieving that level of mad-genius. ;)

I've had a few things come up in the last few months that has kept me away from models and now i've completely lost interest in doing anything so there's no chance i'll get this finished in time and would like to advise that i'm pulling out of the GB. hopefully i'll get motivated to complete it at a later stage when things settle down again. Good luck to all the other entries there were really nice looking ones last time i had a look.

Hope you pick it up again when things change mate. No doubt we all go through stages here and there. Well maybe not Grant but the rest of us mortals :lol:

Yep, amen to that.....sometimes I can't seem to find the motivation to do anything at all, but other times it's the model bench that helps keep me sane.
Hope things work out ok Rob and that you are back to it soon.

I hope things improve soon for you Rob - but even if you're not building, don't be a stranger. It's always good to hear from you.
