Ok folks,  time to vote on which Group Builds you would like to see in 2019.  I have put up all the suggestions proposed in the last 12mths.  See here for more info on each - starting at about Reply#332.  Also feel free to ask.  Please note that I may have merged a couple given they had similar or overlapping themes.

Poll will run for 2wks.  Each member gets 5 votes and you are able to change your mind if you so desire (e.g. to help whittle down the results if you se your preferred is not going anywhere).  Campaigning to get your favourites picked is allowed.

Plan is to have the first new GB start no later than 1st Feb 2019.

Which candidate GB(s) does Slowy Jet best fit ?   http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=1067.0
It is a scale-o-rama. 
Does it best fit in "Weird Build" or "Tongue in cheek" ?
Or other ?

Wow there's certainly no lack of options!

Many thanks for being so inclusive, Mr GTX!

One small thing, it's not letting me change my vote. I wasn't sure if you'd changed your mind on this or if something needed tweaked.

Thanks again for offering so many great options that I'm sure we can all find our Favorite Five.

This was one of my suggestions and was aimed at the TV show, intended as  a sci-fi build but with a Thunderbirds slant on it.

Boy is there a lot of choice here !

I'm actually surprised and a little confused at the great popularity of Scale-o-rama. I enjoy seeing what people accomplish, but when I think about it, my stash is full of kits of one scale (1:72 in my case); in order to participate, I would need to build out of my preferred scale, or buy a kit for the specific purpose of Scale-o-rama into 1:72.  I'm not totally against that, but it does give me pause...

Some of the others surprise me because they are so specific (for example: Sweden and Rhodesia). 

On the other hand, I am happy that some of my favorites are doing well.  Vote for US Enters WWII Early and Forgotten Fights!

I'll let you in on a little secret regarding scale-o-rama, Acree:

It doesn't matter what scale the kit is actually in, just what scale you build it to.

For example, a two or three seat 1/72 patrol plane can be turned into a 1/144 transport with some creative decals and/or painting. Alternately, you could scale it up to a 1/48 light aircraft too.

When I play this game, I picture a silhouette of the aircraft and imagine what role it could take on if it was half or double the scale.

Also, scale-o-rama applies to parts as well as whole kits too. Lots of room there.

The pic below is a 1/72 Revell He-219 that I turned into a 1/144 airliner with just a few tweaks.

As for Rhodesia and Out of Africa, I’d definitely support merging them as I voted for both.

So, the results:

  • Scaleorama  GB with 22 votes
  • Floaty GB with 13 votes
  • Beasts of Burden' (Transport) GB with 11 votes - this could double as the annual non-military GB too if we wished
  • US enters WWII early (1940)  GB with 10 votes
  • Extended Spanish Civil War GB/Alt. Spanish Civil War  GB also with 10 votes

Now, we could go with just these.  However, if we merge a couple that had similar themes, we get:

  • Scaleorama  GB with 22 votes
  • Beasts of Burden' (Transport) GB + Airliners GB with combined 20 votes
  • Floaty GB with 13 votes
  • "Out of Africa" GB + Rhodesian Bush War GB with combined 12 votes
  • US enters WWII early (1940)  GB with 10 votes
  • Extended Spanish Civil War GB/Alt. Spanish Civil War  GB also with 10 votes

As you can see, this latter one only really adds in the African options with everything else essentially the same.  it does potentially give us 6 GBs though which if we were to plan on them being 3mths long with a potential overlap of 1 mth would take us out until the end of Feb 2020 (assuming the first GB kicks off at the end of this month).  I'm comfortable with this if you are.

Does anyone have any comments on which option we should go for?  My preference would be whatever gives greatest overall participation.

I will give people a couple of days to respond (either here or to me via PM) if you have any strong preferences one way or the other.  After that, I start hunting down the Moderators for the GBs....volunteers welcomed!

I agree with Logan - broader is better: more likely to get greater participation.  I presume most people are at least somewhat like me: I have my own preferred scale, time period and countries/regions I like to model and the more ability I have to shoehorn those preferences into the group build, the more likely I am to jump in. 

I am also completely in favor of your suggested timeline. 

Hooray for positive results!  Looking forward to the calendar.

Beasts of burden include military airlifters?
Does it include ground and sea transport too, i.e. trucks, freighters, trains, humorously overloaded mopeds?

My reading of it included air & ground, with the probability of sea.

Up to he GB Moderator at the end of the day but I see no reason why it shouldn't.

I think so.

"Beasts of Burden + Airliners + Nonmilitary as one conglomerate GB"

Didn't see "Non-military" on the original list, but in the spirit of conglomerating: add Cropdusters, Firefighters, and Billionaire's Toys - since they all fit in the the "non-warplane genre"

"Non-military" wasn't listed as such but we decided a few years ago to have an annual non-military gB of some description.  I just mentioned it here when I made the comment about merging.

I'm all for combining. I think broader GBs is better, so that works well for me.

Cheers,

Again, up to the GB Moderator but I could see such vehicles being added to the "Beasts of Burden" concept.

There is/was an 'Airliners' GB option
