Film, Fictional and Speculative GB

Recommended Posts

Following discussion in the What If IV thread, and inspired by Pacific at War's success in getting several popular proposals that didn't quite reach critical mass together under a broad common theme, here is the group build for all things either film and television, fictional or speculative...or both. The plan is to run it as one group build, with entries going in any one of three subcategories:

 

What If IV: The only rule is the subject can't have existed (in completed form) in reality. The departure from reality can be as subtle as fictional markings on an otherwise Rivet-Counter Approved (TM) Spitfire, P-51 or Bf.109, or it can be a completely fanciful kitbash. Real projects or proposals that didn't reach the hardware phase (including incomplete prototypes), fictional subjects from media other than film and television (novels, comics, video games, etc.) and original speculative or creative concepts are all included.

 

Sci-Fi & Fantasy III: Any subject goes here if it fits the science fiction or fantasy genres. Obsessively screen-accurate, casual OOTB build, non-canon original paint scheme, kitbash or completely original design independent of any published source material...it doesn't matter, as long as it fits in the science fiction or fantasy genre.

 

Movie and TV II (aka Big Screen, Little Screen): Anything from TV and movies goes here...animated or live action, and it doesn't have to be a fictional work. I'm going to tentatively suggest that news coverage wouldn't usually count, but real equipment featured on series such as Top Gear, Mighty Ships, etc. is fair game. The one restriction here is that it has to be at least reasonably close to screen-accurate for the source material: A Top Gun F-14 or A-4 wouldn't necessarily have to match the exact serial numbers, but it would have to be the right version with the appropriate camouflage scheme and unit markings, for example.

 

And most importantly...let's have fun! Who's interested?

I said I'd be in and I will. If my weight has gone down it'll be the 2001 Discovery. If not then Either the Space Clipper or a Paper Panzer of some nationality.

I'm in of course - its  a shame we have to resort to these tactics to get a GB though the voting process but whatever it takes, just make sure the NAME of the GB makes sense when it gets put onto the poll at the end of the year so people can immediately see what the topic is rather than guess and not vote for it.

it's a looooooooooooooooooooong way off - so I  will need reminding in due course - but I voted for Big Screen / Little Screen AND I have a crazy idea for a spitfire - so this sounds like fun to me - count me in - but don't forget to wake me up when it comes to voting time :sleeping:

I do find that these things get mentioned, get participates but are so far ahead in the distance.

I too voted for the Big screen/little screen so if you could kindly kiss the bed nearer the time, count me in  . . .

Have a number of kits in the stash that could fit in here, so please included me too please. 

 

Top of the pile would be a Polar Lights United Planets Cruiser C-57D from Forbidden Planet.

Welcome aboard, everyone! Thanks for your interest.

 

John - just wanted to check you wish to join? I've put you on the list, but please let me know if that was premature on my part.

Those all sound fun!

If directed at my choices I hope so too! It's nice not to have to worry too much about rivet counters claiming that rivets were replaced by bolts on the Mk.IIa :D

Now need to find out what scale the Clipper kit actually is.

Absolutely! Anything fictional is fair game, with What If being the fallback category if it doesn't fit Sci-Fi or Movie and TV. Great idea.
