Folks,

With the end of 2015 in sight (yeah, it's true), its time to start planning the Group Builds you would like for 2016.

Please post away!

Kind regards,

Greg

To start - a variation on the Civilian/Non-Military GB:  how about an Executive Transport GB?  This could include business jets, yachts, Limos as well as those military platforms converted as such (see below for an example).

How about "Wrecks, derelicts, and ready for the scrap heap" Anything that is used, abused, and left to rust away.

I'll submit one from last year that didn't make it: Earth Left Behind - The human race has left Terra to expand into the solar system and beyond.  Anything space/sci fi: starships, planetary exploration vehicles (land, air, sea), civilian or military would be fair game.

How 'bout this? "Out of Your Element"  Ground vehicles that fly, ground combat vehicles or racers based on aircraft fuselages, land-based or space-faring ships, etc. etc.

i was kinda thinking of a "Future Warfare GB".
where we will build next generation weapons to be used in a future conflict beyond 2020/2025.
could be ships, vehicles, aircraft, mechs...
on the bench:
-various models

on the drawing board:
-various 1/72 TinTin aircraft
-1/72 Eurocopter Tiger (Belgian Army)
-various other 1/72 and 1/144 aircraft

Sounds good, though you may need to add another 30+yrs to the dates to see anything significant. ;)

How about a "Show us your uglies" GB whereby we do models, profiles, stories etc centred on those less aesthetically pleasing designs (either real world or your own creations).  Example might include the BV141 or Blackburn Blackburn, Trabant...

Uglify the beaty or beautify the ugly?
Shiny paint and nicer wheels can make a Trabant look pretty nice:
