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.

The nice thing with a resin engine is after you assemble it, it you have to sand it down to fit, that’s easy, and when it’s inside the cowling, nobody on this green earth will know you did it.
After successfully resolving the paint problems with the tail, I decided that the underside or lower color looked a bit dark (see previous images).
The information covering the colors are based on […]
It’s going to be worth the wait, Michael.
Hey James @jamesb
Thanks for posting this link. It tells the whole story doesn’t it ???
I’ll try to finish this one in a day or so…………. I have ben adding the tiny stencil decals over the past […]
I started a collaboration with a 3D printing company to expand my model making business, so I haven’t had much time to work on the 1941 diorama. I did manage to put “rusted” metal corrugation on the roof of the […]
Louis @lgardner, just to add to the story……………
Been a while since the last update. I was struggling a bit with the painting of the tail colors. The top area of the tail had several stripes indicating the plane was used by USAAF Service Command, basically […]
A little bit of modification and tidying up !!
After some filing and dry-fitting, I mixed up some Magic Sculpt and tucked it into the holes and pressed the pieces together. A little CA flashed with Zip Kicker held it together to fully cure. The gaps still need […]
Given this is my first kit in some decades, and it being resin at that, I’m going to start with the head.
I drilled some holes into the parts of the head mask, making sure there are undercuts to give the […]
Okay, after a very long hiatus I’ve unearthed the Ra kit—and with due haste—exhuming this thread/project. First off my apologies for the what appears would be another abandoned project, but I was in school for […]
Hey Louis @lgardner, Yes this is where the Fire trucks were housed.
Airshow was hot on Saturday and didn’t shoot much since I was babysitting Momma and Future Momma in the VIP Tent. Sunday, totally different […]
Hey Chuck, @uscusn
Those are some nice looking planes !!! I like the markings you used for your Panther jet. I hope that my wing tip tanks turn out as nice as yours did.
What really caught my eye were […]
Hey Tom, @tcinla
I have had a bad experience in the past with my A-20 Havoc and using metalizer paint. I learned my lesson with that one. I had failed to seal the metalizer, which I used on the fabric […]
Hello Jim !!! @jimh
Thanks for the compliment. I hope it turns out half as nice as your F2G did. That one grabbed my attention…………… and quick !!!
This is one of my favorite movies from the era […]
Earlier today I gave the Metallizer a nice coat of “Future” clear acrylic. I am very pleased with how the wing tip tanks look now. Hopefully this will help prevent any masking accidents.
Then I turned my […]
Those are some very useful and very neat looking photos…………………….. So was the “Fire Tender” building used to house the airport Fire / Crash trucks ???
Looks like your UC-64 is coming right […]
I recently reached out to my previous contact at the Twinwood Aviation Museum with a few questions regarding the Twinwood Control Tower during war times. Specifically, was the fencing present in some of the […]
