Aircraft Group Build – Survey Says: Phantoms!
February 8, 2016 in Aviation
I’ve tabulated the survey results. The top two contenders for the build were the F-4 Phantom and the WWII Japanese fighter/interceptor. The Phantom received one more 1st rank vote, but double the 2nd rank votes, so I’ll call that a clear winner!
About half said they only needed 3 months, but the other half asked for 6, so in order to take the pressure off those with other things to do than just modeling, we’ll go with 6 months.
Here’s how the build will work:
I have set up a 2016 Phantom Group Build in the Groups section. Rather than a series of individual posts, let’s just use the single group thread to manage the conversation:
Please post what you’ve decided to build once you land on a subject. Check back every now and then to post an update and see how others are doing. IF you want to set up a WIP for the project, go ahead, but don’t feel you have to – I know several have indicated they don’t like doing WIP posts (I’m one of those…). I’ll also repost the build guidelines there so it’s easier to find.
Details: Any F-4 Phantom II – any scale, any country, any livery. Whatever tickles your fancy! Target date for completion is August 15th – the objective would be that on the weekend of Aug 13/14, we all post our finished builds. If you finish early – hang on to it until the posting date!
By the way, there were lots of good suggestions for future group builds, I could see perhaps starting a new group build every quarter or so! If your favorite didn’t make it this time, we’ll do more! I only build aircraft so that’s my focus, but if some of you auto/boat/sci-fi builders want to launch a separate build – please do! There are some build topics that lend themselves to multiple subjects, and I’d suggest one of those in the near future also.
