Правила и положения (Rules and Regulations)
« on: March 29, 2017, 07:14:57 AM »
Товарищи! Члены этой самой великолепной коллективной модели!

Добро пожаловать в 2017 году Советская Группа Красной Звезды.




Comrades! Members of this most glorious model collective! Welcome to the 2017 Red Star Soviet Group Build!

For the next two months we shall all strive together in solidarity to produce the most glorious models of the Soviet Union and our socialist allies that ever (or never, as the case may be) kept at bay the howling hordes of Yankee running dogs and their western lackeys. The Red Star should be a prominent feature of your creation, in order to strike awe and fear in those that see our mighty forces, ready to defend the motherland at a moment's notice!

The underlying idea, as I see it, is for this group build to flesh out an alternate or extended timeline for the Soviet Union. Any vehicle; air, sea, space, land is eligible as long as it is marked, painted, armed, etc... in the style of the Soviet Union or her satellite nations. It could be as simple as an F-16 or Eurofighter in Voyska PVO service or a Nimitz analogue Soviet super carrier with a full compliment of Sea Flankers or it could be as complex as your imagination can make it. Russian space shuttle armed with anti-satellite weapons? Sure! Soviet Stealth Bomber? Why not? It could also be a "Boeingski 767" in Aeroflot livery for those non-militarily inclined.



Правила и положения (Rules and Regulations):

1. HAVE FUN

2. Any and all mediums are welcome -physical models, pixels/profiles and stories.

3. Duration will be from 1 April 2017 to 31 May 2017. An extension may be granted if the Party Membership needs it in order to complete their superior designs and construction in order to shame the running dog imperialists of the West.

4. Creativity and collaboration are encouraged.

5. Any questions are to be directed to the Moderator (your humble servant of the people, Comrade LemonJello)

6. Polling of the membership at the conclusion of the Group Build will determine who gets to bask in the appreciation of the Whiffing Proletariat .

7. Most importantly, if all else fails, see Rule #1

Для Родины!

COMRADE! How would the Collective feel about started projects - is there a limit to how much has been done? I have something in mind which was started for a similar GB some time ago, basic airframe construction is complete but there's a lot of PSR to be done.

It is good to see such revolutionary fervor before the official start of our glorious march to the future of socialist progress!

To answer your question: On 1 April, when we start our struggle against the forces of corrupt capitalist war mongers, any project that has been started, but is less than half done ( there needs to be more involved than paint/markings, a significant portion of the assembly must remain undone) will be accepted for entry to this Group Build.

For the Motherland! For Victory!

The Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production has met and come to the following conclusion:

Several of our Comrades' eagerness to show the motherland's foes our military prowess is admirable but must be tempered so as to keep Шпионы и диверсанты (spies and saboteurs) in the dark.  In this case, we of the Committee of State Sanctioned Modelling, Alternative History and Tractor Carburettor Production see this as merely a "peek behind the curtain" sure to rouse the proletariat to even greater goals!

However, we must warn the collective that our glorious leader, GTX_Admin has his gimlet eye upon us all!

Poor Magda, pictured below, didn't heed our warning and was assigned as a "telemetry specialist" in our deep space exploration program...


You don't want to end up in the stash mines, assembling Starfix kits according to the instructions* as a "Re-Education Exercise," do you, Comrades?

Comrades!

Приближается славная дата завершения!

The Glorious Completion Date Approaches!

Other matters germane to the ongoing struggle against the capitalists has taken my time, but I encourage the collective to push forward and complete their projects.

I haven't received any requests (in quintuplicate) for an extension, so is it safe to prepare for the closing ceremonies and move into the most glorious voting stage at the end of this week?

Ahemski. Regretably, People's Collective Styrene Re-Education Plant n. 370 in Yogottabekiidinski has lagged behind...is think one week extension would be adequate if Commisar Lemonjello will be considering latest
progress report in build thread. ( Comrade Yoganoff, who blamed delay on workers spending "too much
time studying moticational posters", has been purged. )

Report from the People's Commissar for Glue Inspections: A (small) extension would be useful to help weed out those troublemakers who haven't shown enough revolutionary zeal to date.  My staff are already conducting investigations... 

P.S.  Tell the BTS Gulag to expect a fresh round of 'recruits' for the Starfix and Unicraft mines...

My dearest loyal to cause comrades!!

It has been a hard, long and cold winter and a very wet spring which has brought upon us yet another plague of the infamous 3' long mosquitoes!

All deliveries of modelling supplies has failed as either the pilots refuse to fly over the miles of uncharted tundra or those who try are attacked and or carried away by the ginat mosquito's.  We are using sleds but they are too slow.

Here are photos of us using in desperation a theodolite trying to locate the next shipment of glue and putty. Note the mosquito netting.  It is a very depressing times.






We ask that the Peoples Commissar will understand our plight and allow a 2 week extension.

Yours in the glorious revolution, L. Kulik

The Assistant Commissar for Security of Modelling Knives, Size 3 Paint Brushes and Rubber Hose Clamps is wondering when the voting for this glorious GB will commence.  Maybe some time in the gulag for the Moderator of this glorious GB will help ensure his total loyalty to the Motherland and ensure he isn't spending too much time in the 3rd toilet cubicle with the inspirational images he has been posting...

This humble moderator profusely apologizes to this most glorious assemblage for the delay in getting the voting set up.  Further, I ask for leniency from The Assistant Commissar for Security of Modelling Knives, Size 3 Paint Brushes and Rubber Hose Clamps when assigning the moderator to the #10 October Revolution Re-Education Camp and Wellness Spa.

This poor moderator will strive to have the polls established this evening between his first and second shifts in the polystyrene mines.
