“Wings of the Emperor”…or “The Empire of Japan” another thought for an upcoming Group Build
In addition to the “Korea the Forgotten War” group build that will last during the exact time frame as the war did, (only 70 years later), here’s another one I was thinking about.
This Group Build would be called “Wings of the Emperor”, or “The Empire of Japan”.
This idea and the Korean War ideas have been approved by the administrative staff here at Imodeler.
It would be more like a traditional group build, and would last until the end of the Year. Extensions could be made as necessary to allow most (if not all) of the projects ample time for completion.
Anything that was ever flown, operated, sailed, or driven by the Japanese could be a subject for a build.
This would include captured planes too, so there are a lot of choices in this one too. Anything could be done, from a shelf of doom rescue, to a brand new build.
Just as I mentioned in the Korean War GB, I might have to ask out on occasion for help with moderating it.
Please let me know your thoughts on this one as you did with the Korean War GB.
***** update ****** flash **** news alert *****
There has been talk about widening this idea to include various other things… I have thought about changing the name of this GB to “The Empire” or “The Wings of the Empire”.
This would allow for other subjects to include Star Wars stuff, and anything that was related to the Japanese Empire. This would open the door for various builds such as cars, ships or even a speed rail train as mentioned by one member… As it stands now, a Japanese aircraft carrier would qualify, since they had airplanes on board. We have wiggle room… as long as you can somehow link your build to the theme, it will work.
We could also simply call it “The Empire of Japan” and limit it to pre WW2 and actual WW2 involved subjects. From 1920 to the end of 1945 as an example……………. aircraft, ships, vehicles and armor.
This would tighten the focus back a little………… and I personally kind of like this better.
What say you ?
