Ok folks,

Time to vote on what Group Builds (GBs) you would like to see in 2014 (or at least the first half-ish of).  I have listed all the suggestions that have been made in 2013 so far (I think).  If anyone wants clarification on any of the suggestions just ask - either I or one of those who originally suggested it can step in to explain.

The poll is up for 14 days.  You have 4 votes so cast them carefully.  You can however also change your mind afterwards if need be.

Now, get voting!!!

Regards,

Greg

My votes:

WWI GB (includes Extended and Alternate WWIs)
Snoops, Sensors, Spooks, & Spies etc GB
Book/Movie GB
Spat/Unspat My Ride GB

So, we have a Space GB, an ISR GB, an Unarmed GB, an SAR GB, and a Trainer GB proposal.  Bunch of pacifists.  ;)

We'll have to make up for it in 2015.  :D

Only voted for two of them as not much else interested me, but at least one choice is up at the top at the moment.  I've got just the thing for the build too, a 1/72 BAe 844.  Extra fuselage (A310) for it arrived on Friday so I can start my build planning  ---- I'll build it any which way the vote goes --

Nothing formal in the last 12 mths that I could find.  I had to draw a line somewhere wrt entries.  Besides, such a GB would be difficult from the perspective of profiles and stories.

Maybe we don't have to wait that long ... I mean, SAR can be dangerous; an air force can't train without weapons; if ALIENS taught us anything it taught us to go in peace but be armed for bear; and 'alone unarmed and unafriad' (sorry RF101ers) is passe. Anyone for a nuclear armed, SCRAMjet powered Pilatus RF9C in RAAF colours?  >:D

WW1
Let's Go Nuclear
Snoops, Sensors, Spooks & Spies, etc.
Books/Movies (& I'm kinda hoping that includes Games)

I also tried to vote for "Disbanded Nations" but that took me over the 4-choice limit.

Cool suggestions

WWI - It'll be an easy hit to make the Meng Char 2C into a combat ready monster for the 1919 offensive

Space - I appear to have some sort of Martian hover tank lurking in my stash  8)

April's fool - I already have a build planned up that would fit in nicely with this; M4A3E2 HVSS (105 mm) slap some 3 AD markings on it and claim it as part of the Zebra mission from April 1945. who would ever know...  ;D

Punked - hmmm, two minds on this one TBH, I have a half finished steampunk build and this would be a good inspiration to actually finish the thing, but if I have to start something new? Sheesh, that'll be tough as I'm running out of space on the bench as it is  :-\

Vote submitted.

Space - nothing on hand, but I do have some ideas bouncing around my brain housing group...

Cross Dressing Schemes - maybe this will push me to actually make either my HMX-1 "Marine One" V-22, or my Canadian SAR V-22, or my USCG V-22, or...

Snoops, Sensors, Spooks & Spies - I've got that 1/72 SR-75 waiting to be scaled up to the One TRUE ScaleTM and detailed as a strategic recon bird

Disaster/Disaster Recovery - see above mention of Canadian SAR V-22 and USCG V-22 and add a Merlin in that gorgeous Canadian yellow scheme to the mix as possible projects.

Huh!  ??? Why would you need to re-scale it, then? It's already in the One True ScaleTM - 1/72. Look for your own moniker for your oversized kits, would you.  8)
Or else!  C:-)

You have your heretical One True ScaleTM and I have the One TRUE ScaleTM. They are two entirely different things.  Besides, One Scale to Rule Them All takes too long to type.
