Clear Your Bench Group Build 2016-17 Edition

With Christmas just days away, Santa knows how many kits you have started but not finished.

So for you get any more modeling supplies (kits, paints, brushes, books, new software etc) as a Christmas gift, you need to show some progress in clearing your bench.  And if you did not know already Santa now has the largest fleet of drones in the world so he knows what you are doing 24/7 in all electromagnetic spectrum's. You cannot hide from the Elvin drone operators. They never sleep.

The GB rules are:

1. Have Fun!!!

2. All started projects are allowed, from one percent started to 99 percent complete. The whole point of this GB is to "purge your procrastination" and finish all those projects you have started. We all seem to stall at different points, so a picture(s) of where you last left off, and a description of your plans to where are taking your project would be helpful.

3. All mediums are welcomed. so physical models, Pixels/profiles and stories (and anything else if you can think of it) are all welcome. Yes, finish those evil real world projects. The faster you get done with that, the quicker you get back to fun time of whiffing. 

4. Creativity encouraged as is collaboration, however any attempt to fool Santa will be discovered (via the drones) and Black Peter/Pierre Noir/Schwarzer Peter will be bringing you a Starfix/Bandai/Nichimo/Meikraft/Mach 2 kit for Christmas.

5. GB duration is December 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017.  An extension may be granted.

6. Physical creations and pixels/stories will be judged separately.

7. Multiple entries are allowed and encouraged. This GB is supposed to get you across the finish line!!

Any questions are to be directed to the Moderator (The Big Gimper).

Please do not forget Rule 1!

How do we post models such that each one is in its own thread under physical models ?
How is WIP posted versus finished posted ?

Good question Bill.

First off I renamed my Threads to Completed. You should post your finished photos, drawings or written item within these three master threads.

For your work in progress item, you should create own thread under: Beyond The Sprues Modelling Group and Themed Builds Annual Clear your workbenches GB 1/72 US Navy Monitor Boat

If there is a build thread already underway, we can also move it to this GB area.

Bandai in a list with Starfix and Mach 2?  :-\

Sure, Black Peter can bring me a slew of Gundams and Star Wars kits
and I won't complain.
 ;D :icon_fsm:

p.s. Nichimo's 'old' Ki 43 is still the best 1/48 Oscar out there and stands
up well to current 1/48 kits. Their 1/48 Ki 45 and Ki 51 are both also pretty
damned good.

Maybe I am dating myself Jon. I had some Bandai kits in the the 1970s they were less than buildable. But your preferences have been noted and entered into the SC database.

I'll add one of mine later once I've figured out if I can "'really"" finish it. Haven't had much time for myself lately with work being as busy as it is

Sounds good Robert. I still hold the title of the "Prince of Procrastination". I would love to have someone else assume this title.   ;)

We're the same age.  ;D

I built some of their 1/48 armour back in the '70s and enjoyed them, today
Bandai makes some of the finest kits available with multiple colours (and clear)
on a single sprue, workable joints on 'one-piece' mouldings, primarily
cement-less construction, etc.
They have engineering and moulding that some of the military kit manufacturers
are just starting to emulate, amongst them Meng with its new 1/48 P-51 and
Fujimi with their Next series of 1/350 ships.

Had only foggy recollection Bandai.  Found some of their armor kits online.  Now recall building at least Panzer Wespe and Schutzenpanzerwagen halftrack.  Was in 70s and I like Jon also enjoyed them.

Um, I only have to varnish my only wip and it's done.  Do you think Santa would mind, if I get time, starting one from scratch?

(P.S. Will anyone be building a model of one of the drones?)    :o
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

Hi PF:

This is acceptable. The more kits the better.

Cheers

Hi Folks:

Sorry for the absence. I had Carpal Tunnel surgery on my dominate hand last week. So my keyboarding was limited my other hand at 1 word per minute.  :(

Getting better but no fun at all.

So over the holiday break, lets all head up or down to the model cave or folder on your computer and dig out those unloved kits/pictures that you have forgotten about and give some love and stylus/PSR and add them to the ACYW GB.

I'll be heading downstairs shortly with the archaeology tool kit and dig out a few kits myself.

Thanks

My stash and WIPs have been packed ready for the move after Christmas so unlikely I will participate in this one either.
