1920s/1930s GB or Between the Wars GB
« on: July 04, 2021, 09:01:05 AM »
The 1920s/1930s Group Build (or Between the Wars Group Build) has just reached its halfway point. But that means that there's still a whole month left to get stuck in to that shelf-queen or half-finished profile. Go on, you know you want to  ;)

So, dig into that stash. Helpful Hint: The kit you're looking for is that box at the very bottom of the least accessible column in your horde. Fortunately, that pile-less-travelled is probably in need of a good airing anyhow  :smiley:

We pixel-pushers have it much easier - we only have to exhaust every possible search-term option for those forgotten file names. Easy-peasy! So, profilers ... consider that as throwing down a gauntlet. (Not an actual Gauntlet, of course ... we don't want to overstress the main gear!)

Storytellers? Hell yeah. Bung another row of extra-large rivets or some steamlined speed-strakes onto your plot line and send 'er our way!

One month to go. Gentlemen, start those engines ...

15 Days Notice, Folks!  [insert 'A-Whoo-Gah' horn sound here!]

It is hard to believe but the 1920s/1930s GB or Between the Wars GB has just reached its three-quarters point.

Procrastinators of the World Unite! (Eventually)

Tempus Fugiting is just Chronos' way of saying: "Dig deep into that stash and dig deep now!" [1] Of course, true whiffers won't be intimidated by a mere primordial time deity! Some people like to live dangerously and will join a Group Build at the very last moment. And we admire their spunk  :smiley:

Of course you can whip that submission together before the cutoff date! No-one doubts it. However, there is a golden opportunity here for multiple submissions. Two-to-three models in 15 days? Piece o' cake!  8)

Pixel-Pushers and Painters

This GB Needs You!  Don't let the side down!  We can do it lads!  Show these polystyrene people how the other half live! Push those pixels!  Do it now!

Inspiration

You need inspiration? We got inspiration!  http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=9812.0

Besides, it's in the name - 1920s/1930s. A period filled with heady design innovations, hedonism, grandiosity, bizarre politics, and insane economic policies! It really doesn't get much better when it comes to Whif Fodder!

Do it Today! Or Tomorrow! Oh, actually, next week looks pretty open ...

Submit Today, Submit Often!

[1] We mentioned before that "The kit you're looking for is that box at the very bottom of the least accessible column in your horde."  No?

Could it be in the second most-buried column in the stash? Or did those half-remembered 1/48 biplane bits go into that empty 1/72 F/A-18 box along with those spare Sherman parts? (As a parts filing system, it probably made perfect sense at the time.)  When in doubt, dig and dig again!

Build hard, build fast, ... you can do it  :smiley:

Indeed.  And we all know what happened when the 1930s turned bad...

Quite! Those were the good old days, folks. Fortunately the awesome power of whif allows us to redirect the future  ;)

1920s/1930s GB or Between the Wars GB

"In the realm of ideas, everything depends on enthusiasm ..." - Goethe

Alrighty then ... just when you thought it was safe to leave the bunker, we've had a request for an extension!

This Group Build's revised deadline is now 11:59:59 08 August 2021 (PDT)  :smiley:

That means there is 8.5 days left to: ...
- Chase the spiders out of that far corner of the stash and recover that lost kit;
- Stare down that Shelf of Doom denizen (this time you win - take that 'Hangar Queen'!);
- Get cracking on that artwork/profile (can't let the Plastic People get all the glory!)

"Go at it boldly, and you'll find unexpected forces closing round you and coming to your aid." - Basil King

POLL - 1920s/1930s GB or Between the Wars GB

This is an ex-Group Build! That is right,  the Polls for the 1920s/1930s GB or Between the Wars GB's completed builds are ready. And thars two of 'em:

1 : Baked From Scratch[/b] (aka 'Brand Spankin' New Builds!')
- http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=9904.0

2 : Shelf of Doom's Loss (aka 'Hangar Queens Rescued!')
-- http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=9905.0

There is no poll for profiles or other 2D artwork.  Why?  Well, my fellow pixel-pushers were sensible enough not to rise to my urgings and taunts.  So, with no rival submissions to worry about, I've been happily re-arranging my new virtual Pixel Trophy collection around the Pool Room for weeks now!  :smiley:

The actual contributions have come from those Perfectors of Polystyrene Pursuits. And there are plenty of gems to choose from. Again, you have a total of three (3) votes to divide between the two (2) categories. This poll will be open until 22 August 2021 (PDT). Then, ... Judgement Day

So ... VOTE!   :D
