Back in 2014 I took part in my first Group Build on Britmodeller and I still remember what a fun and supportive experience it was. It was, as you've probably guessed from the title above, the 'Less Than A Tenner' GB. The original GB can be found here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/forum/462-less-than-a-tenner-group-build/ I have thought about suggesting this GB for a while but I felt there needed to be a significant gap between the first and next version of this GB. If this gets through the bunfight - at the end of the year - the gap will be seven years which, I think, should be enough. The basic idea is that any kit can be built in the GB as long as it cost you less than £10.00 - or the equivalent thereof in the currency of the country you live or lived in - to purchase. This will hopefully mean we get a wide variety of Out Of Box (OOB) builds made without the need to use any aftermarket items. The kits built can currently cost less than £10 (or equivalent) to buy or you can build something that cost you less than £10 back in, say, 1970. If you have the receipt still or the price sticker is still on the box then that is even better but not a necessity for taking part. However, it would be useful if you purchased the item in a sale, at a real knock down price, if you did have the receipt or the sale/reduced sticker is still in place. In the spirit of the previous GB it will be expected that people are honest about how much they paid for the kit. Someone suggesting a 1/32nd Tamiya Spitfire cost them £4.50 back in 2008 will be looked upon as going against the spirit of the idea of this GB. This type of GB probably won't appeal to everyone but should give most of us a chance to hunt through to the back of the stash to find something we thought we wouldn't make for a while, if at all. We'll need 30 people signed up before the bunfight at the end of the year. Kind regards, Stix The list: 1. PlaStix (host) 2. Jb65rams 3. Black Knight 4. vppelt68 5. PLC1966 6. Arniec 7. Ted 8.
