Hmmm I see a lot of GB ideas that could be combined, especially under civil aircraft...

That is a possibility.

Should be at least 38 at this point. Tough choices, though I am sorta glad that the SF group build is out in front.

Only two I voted for are among the top vote getters, that's fairly normal.  Shame I can't vote "Chicago Style" (early and often).

Up to 37 now but still not good enough.  Don't force me to make use of Russian 'bots' to influence the voting

Hmm, I've only got one --- and I don't think I'd be able to enter what I have started either ---

Damn! I missed that this was up! :o :icon_crap:

That's what happens when you get caught up in World of Warships over Christmas/New Year. :-[

(A quick check tells me I wouldn't have had a big influence, anyway.)

So, Sci-Fi GB (18 votes) and Firefighting GB (15 votes) placed #1 and #2, but there are several candidates for #3, with Civil Transport GB, Invasion of Japan/Japan ‘46 GB, Helicopters & autogyros GB and Scaleorama GB getting 13 votes each. Looks like there will have to be another round of votin'.  ;D

Just some ideas:

Crazy paint schemes GB has 9 votes, Paint it Pink and Paint it Black each have 3. Combined 15 possible? Merge for second vote?

Civil Transport, Swords into Plowshares (8 votes) and VIP/Ambulance (5 votes) could form a Civil GB? Then again, Ambulance could also be part of Firefighting.
Unarmed (4votes) could include civilian models, but military ones just as well (recce, transport....), so I guess it wouldn't have to be merged with a civilian topic.

Cheers,
Moritz

I could get behind combining some topics.

So if Sci-fi and Firefighting GBs run back to back can I build a futuristic firetruck and take twice as long to do it?  ;)

Those are some great ideas. Maybe Firefighters and Other 1st Responders? Then Civil/Swords into Plowshares and then the Rainbow of Paint Schemes?

Now I just have to make a better effort to participate in the Group Builds this year. Voting was the easy part.

Excellent suggestion. So, for example, we might have combined Civil Transport/Swords into Plowshares/Unarmed (24 total votes), combined Firefighting/VIP transport/Ambulance (20 total votes), Sci-Fi GB (18 votes),  Scaleorama GB (13 votes), and Invasion of Japan/Japan ‘46 GB (13 votes).  :smiley:

I think all you need to do is have a second poll for the ideas tied for third. A lot of the others haven't garnered any interest which means just that-  and a couple of the GB's last year were a bit of a let down I think, as only one or two entrants participated.
