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.

Corrected - box needed to be ticked.  People can now adjust their votes should they wish to.

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 !

11, 7, 6, 5 & 4 votes each for what I voted for, at this point in time. Rather surprised that a couple of them aren't polling higher.

I really think this needs a second pole after all the chaff has been discarded, way too many choices IMHO.

And like last year, really struggling to even come up with some possibilities for a build in any of the subjects ----  :(

Just remember:

  • You can change your votes if need be  for example if you can see that our preferred choice has no hope of getting up; and/or
  • You can also campaign for your preferences.  Try to convince others why a particular GB should get voted for.

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.

I was thinking that.  If those who voted for the Rhodesian one are happy, I will transfer the votes for it to the Out of Africa one.

Only a few days to go folks.  If you haven't voted yet do so.  If you have, great!  If you have but you can see your preferred selections aren't getting the votes you can do one of two things:

  • Campaign for your selection.
  • Change your votes.
