2020 Firefighting Group Build Rules and Regulations
« on: April 02, 2020, 02:09:04 AM »
Time to kick off a Group Build focused on those that "Put the Wet Stuff on the Red Stuff"



Here are the rules:

1. The Group Build will run from 1 April, 2020 until 30 June, 2020.
    1a. A 2 week extension may be granted for sifting through debris and ashes for any lingering hot spots that need quenching.

2. Have fun!

3. All manner of fire-fighting equipment/apparatuses (apparati?) are welcome, from all nationalities, environments, theaters and time frames in the milieu of your preference: physical/3D, pixel/2D, even in Smell-O-Vision if you can pull it off.

4. If in doubt, ask the moderator for clarification.

5. Hottest entries will be put to a vote of the membership to see who gets to be Chief of the Whif Fire Brigade.

6. See rule #2.

So get to it! You're burning the clock as of right now!

I'm wondering if I could continue with this build I started way back in 2012. What you see in the thread I have going is where it's at today. The photos that show it assembled, is where I have taped it together, either for photos or so I can get a visual on what I was doing. The wing though has been all glued.

I'll try to get an entry in but my current build speed is so glacial I'm being overtaken by tectonic plates! :o :icon_crap:

Thanks LJ, I'll ask the moderators to move the thread to the GB.

I'll take some new photos of the box of bits and post them so everyone can see where I'm restarting the project.

Folks, we've reached (and passed, honestly) the half-way point in this Group Build.  Plenty of time to get those started projects completed, or even to join in and add to the fun.

Fine Friends of the Forum, we've reached the conclusion of the 2020 Firefighting Group Build.

There were no requests for an extension, so we'll begin the building of polls and get them posted for your votes.

Thanks to all that participated!
