Announcing the “Year of the Cat” Group Build
This article is part of a series:
”Year of the Cat”
Traditionally, the Chinese have a calendar year that is named after some sort of animal. This year is the “Year of the Rooster”. So what do you think about this?
The year of the “Cat”... Anything would go that was named after any sort of Cat / Feline.
I’m talking about most of the Grumman planes, Hellcat, Wildcat, Bearcat, Tigercat, Panther jets, Cougars, F-14 Tomcats,
Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawks, “Flying Tiger’s” SEPECAT Jaguar’s, what have you……………..
But wait... there’s more!
To add in a small twist for our fellow Armor builders, what about including anything Armor related such as Tiger’s, Panther’s, Jagdpanther’s, Jagdtiger’s, Sturmtiger’s, Bergepanther’s, Leopard tank’s, Puma’s and so on? Triumph Tiger motorcycles, various cars and Jaguar vehicles would all qualify too.
Basically anything that was named after a cat of some sorts - any scale or “Cat” subject would do. If you can find a boat or a ship with a “Cat” name or designation, it would work too.
George Williams came up with another brilliant twist. Why not carry it over until the Chinese New Year? It’s on February 16th, 2018, and ironically, it is followed by the “Year of the Dog” next. This will give us even more time to complete our projects.
We can start posting our reveals on February 16th, 2018, when ironically, the next Chinese Year is the "Year of the Dog" (seriously, it is)... However if you don't want to wait that long, go for it and post up your completed projects when you get them done.
So... What do you think? Do you care to build a Cat?
Everyone is invited to join. Here's a link to the Group Build.
Hopefully this one will turn out like the recent Midway Group Build... Like in the Midway build, I will have to ask for assistance with this event on occasion.
So, without further delays, Lets get cranking out some Cats! Please feel free to start your Build Log.
