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.

Erik, please follow along. Comment or no, the knowledge that there’s real people out there gives some encouragement and added motivation on these longer builds. Makes one feel a little less madisolatedgeek…ish.
Thanks, Tom. As ‘they’ say, there’s worse things happen at sea…
“You go in the cage. Cage goes in the water. Shark’s in the water. Our shark…”

A beautiful job of effort and images, along with a great play-by-play. Keep ’em coming!
Next to build the nose gear bay compartment.
Hasegawa has 4 parts to assemble the bay. Already pre painted Tamiya Gloss White.
Everything fits very well, nice well done details moulded in the bay. […]
Thanks Paul, it is the least most not fun to do for me is masking the canopy. Masking a paint scheme is different this I do enjoy, as I cannot wait to unmask painted areas like wing and rudder tips, stripes, wing […]
Great stuff. Model on!!
4 days of rain and wind from Hurricane Barry (most of the storm flooding missing my area thankfully), kept me inside at the model bench. I was able to accomplish a lot on Al’s Groc. and Mkt.
The building has a […]
David, the wash is great for bringing out the wood grain and darkening the recesses. Hope it helps with your ORCA build.
Erik, the hobby to profession to hobby allows me to get better at both. As a hobby, I […]
Are the promise of points still valid then I guess at a bat, a baseball bat that is. Keep the positive vibes flowin’ – great topic David, and even though I do not leave a lame comment at every post you make, I […]
This is very well done – hobby turned profession turned hobby I guess makes perfect. Followed with interest.
The final vehicle in this series is the M5 105 motor carriage. Which will be represented by the White M3 T-19 halftrack. The difference is the M5 was produced by International Harvester, and a good way to tell […]
Great save, David! the mark of a master, to not give up in the face of disaster.
How appropo, I can only assume David you where a little ashen at the staining situation and like all good modelers you took another swing at the situation and made a grand come back. A baseball bat ( being made […]
Stunning work, Michael.
I’ve been experimenting with that Raw Umber Oil Color with 90% Isopropyl Alcohol wash to weather wood, and initial tests are very promising. Much appreciated.
Thanks Tom and keep dodging the aftershocks.
Got the Orca back on track and made net gains after the calamities of last weekend.
Got almost all the interior cabin furniture replaced, rebuilt, fitted.
Fookin’ great, Mr. Rieth!
Keep dodging that weather.
Since Hurricane Barry is causing some rain and wind and keeping me from doing anything outside for a few days, I am working on the 1941 diorama. We dodged a bullet, as the wind shear and dry air has kept the storm […]
