Sci Fi II Group Build

Recommended Posts

Not wanting to cause Rick any undue consternation, and messing up his list on page one, I have changed my mind.

After a chat, and a stash raid, I have decided to build....... the Lady.EF61C176-A905-432F-8701-3F815CAA358F.jpg

This ones for you, Rick.

I will update the list tonight and ensure that everyone's choices are duly logged.

Matt,

I am looking forward to this one. I know full well the missus won't let me buy an Air wolf kit for a long time yet.

Rick

I was looking at that picture, hearing the Airwolf theme in my head...and then I realised it was actually Roobard and Custard! :banghead:

Sci fi wouldn't be the same without something from an awful spelling production or something by glen a Larson rip

This is one I am going to have to watch!! :Tasty::popcorn::Tasty::popcorn: I've built two RC Airwolf's and they always caught the attention of passers by when I was flying them.

In my defence they are quite similar!

I like that idea. You could do an Airwolf vs Blue Thunder combat diorama with them both airborne and Airwolf in combat mode.

ok I missed this thread going up...other thing on unfortunately!

As mentioned in the pre-voting thread I will be building this beasty.

It was meant to have a bigger role in Caprica but unfortunately it only appeared/mentioned in a flight simulator scene in one episode.

It's a nice and simple resin model that almost falls together, gotta love good resin models!

Al looking forward to building this as it will be the first SciFi model I've done for years. If time permitted there are a couple of other resin beastys I'd just love to build!

I had a thought recently [yes, I know, it hurts - I'll not be doing too many of those again]

Would Leonardo da Vinci's inventions fit into this?

They were, sort of, scientific fantasy or fiction - sci-fi.. None of his drawings were made and many would never have worked.

I think I have a kit of his 'helicopter'.

At the time he designed them, they would have been a work of pure science fiction, and to my knowledge a working prototype has never existed, so I would have thought they should count.

Just my thought.

Yes, I would think so especially as S5 modeller said, they would be a work of science fiction when he designed them. So yes, we can include that one.

I'll be changing my entry to The Domelaze from SBY 2199. So can't wait.

Am I allowed to design the lighting system now? It won't constitute 1/4 (25%) of the build if that matters?

Hi Màdhatter,

As long as the lighting system doesn't constitute more than 25% of the build at the time the GB starts its fine.

I'm currently in the process of clearing down the (way too many) builds on my bench so should have a clear run on this... Looking forward to it kicking off!

Edit: is there a sig image for the GB yet?

Hi,

Just wondering if any of the participants would like to design a Sig image for the GB ?

If anyone would like to or designs one, please send me a PM with the image in it.

Cheers,

Rick

I'd like to enter my 'Against a Dark Background' bits.....Although they are started, nothing like 25% has been achieved on any of them, glue has scarcely been used although the razor-saw has had a fairly decent workout. :winkgrin:
