About this Group
I’ve wanted to do this Group Build for ages but just haven’t had the time or opportunity to push the button. The idea is very simple; build a model that depicts a scene, character, or subject from any movie or TV show ever made. Had a hankering to build a Delorean? Unleash your dark side on a 1/72 Death Star? Brush up (pun intended) on your figure painting? Or make that Battle of the Bulge dio you’ve been thinking of for the last ten years?
I will assemble a panel of four or five fellow iModelers to judge the ‘best’ entry in the following categories;
World Wars I and II
Other (drama, action, etc)
If anyone wants to make a Rom-Com model, you are on your own.
Closing date will be Christmas 2019 so we can announce winners for the Oscar ceremonies 2020.
Old projects will be accepted (please open a ‘New Topic’ on the Group Build thread if you want to showcase old movie models) but subjects built especially for the Group Build will be prioritised.
If you have an idea for a model from a show or a movie that makes you smile just thinking about it, then that’s exactly what we want. If you don’t want to build a model, please sign up anyway and support others.

Two taking off is a rotte, four’s a schwarm. “Alarm start!”
Hell, Aleks, as long as your deadlines don’t become like GRR Martin’s…
I have a feeling about the time travelling Bran, I think the theory will hold in either the book or the show, maybe not both. Tha […]
Thank David and Michel!
So David, you think that the Bran / Night King theory holds water? I am still hopeful that the end will bring something that no-one thought of…
I was planing to finish NK before the […]
Oh, they’ll all get built, Tom, just thinking of something unusual or interesting to do with them. I genuinely thought that there were only two in the box but there were four. ‘Eduard Royal’ Quattro set (name […]
I say build them all. Louis will show you the way it can be done.
Hmmmmm…………. That last dilemma you have is a hard one. Maybe take a cue from the “Iron Werks” ???
That’s not the Tante Ju from the movie “Where Eagles Dare” in the back ground. 🙂 Could […]
Ah, Michel, you are WAY to kind. Meanwhile, on the OTHeR bench…anyone got any bright ideas what to do with Four Fockes?
I absolutely adore this thread! Great build and story telling from the master himself, David LS!
Sherwood, there were two ‘boats’ made for Jaws, the operational ‘working’ Orca (she is a heavily modified ‘Warlord’ lobster fisher) and a fibreglass replica that was made to fall apart (as w […]
Hi Gabor. Hope you get to working on this again, would be great to see any progress. Sad to note the last comment on your WiP was by Bernard. Encouraging as always.
Hope you are well – the build does look fantastic.
I bow before your undead magnificence, Aleks.
Bran (sorry, the Night King) is looking just amazing. Beautifully rendered, sumptuous paintwork. The texture you manage to achieve is wonderful. Really not easy […]
The spring may have sprung, but make no mistake, the Winter is here!
As its protagonist (antagonist?), so has this build remained silent and obscured in the veil of frosty haze for a long, long […]
Quick update on the Zero.
After a quick test fit of the cockpit. Which was very good I then attached the LH fuselage half and cemented them together.

Nice! One of the first kits I remember building [with the help of my Dad] was the old Hawk 7/11 Gee Bee.
There was a documentary about these shark attacks in New Jersey a few years ago on the History Channel. They too theorized this was a rogue Bull Shark.
They’re more likely to attack than most sharks and w […]
Thanks Louis, with your inspiration on your Fury tank build, I will watch that build as it comes along taking notes as this one progresses.
This is going to be a great one to watch coming together. It’s one of my favorite movies too, even though it’s fictional. I’ll watch it anytime it’s on TV as well.
Excellent choice !!!! […]
