The Build of the Year competition, 2019

Postby Mark » Sun Dec 30, 2018 9:57 pm

Announcing a new competition. The Build of the Year. No restrictions, and one year to complete your model.

The rules are so simple that nobody should have any problem understanding them, although the naughty step has been freshly cleaned for anybody who wants to be particularly obtuse. (You know who I'm talking about!)

Any kit, any subject, any scale, and any aftermarket accessories you like. With or without a diorama, as you wish. You must start it on or after the first of Jan, and the model must be completed and final pictures posted by 31st Dec 2019.

Only 1 entry per person. Post your build diary here. Start with a picture of the un-started kit, along with a brief description of what your intentions are.

The winner will be selected by a vote in Jan 2020.
Cheers
Mark

There’s lots of opportunity for some great entries. It doesn’t have to be a huge and expensive kit either. It’s hard to beat a bottom shelf kit with a great diorama and imagination.

Yes! The Lancaster would be ideal for this once it gets here! I will have to wait a bit until Eduard and the rest catch up.

A nice way to have some big fun!

I Think that the best one for this build would be the B-17.

The reason I am saying this is that with Trumpeter's B24 there is no option to view the interior and therefore any update sets inside is a waste of money, time and effort.

With the B 17 and the ability to have the top of the aircraft removeable and there are a host of AM stuff from Eduard, Master models barrel sets and master details in the US to replace the ammunition feels with really nice detailed metal flexible feeds that look the job. Also they have figures too!

After looking at the sprue parts on Hobbyboss website and reading/watching several reviews there are several mistakes in the kit and it is obvious that it has been done to a price point.

Still, it should build up to be a nice looking big thing exterior wise. I am sure that it will end up on my bench at some point.

If you need any help with the paint colours for the B-17 then let me know!

The kit is in the post and on the way from China. I have to wait until I see what Eduard releases and there's no rush.

by the looks of things the only seatbelt in the aircraft was for the pilot! I am sure HGW will have something in their British range to suit. I'm still digging for info on that one!

Me neither, but in any case, can you start a new thread, with a link to your build diary when you start it.
Cheers
