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.

Louis @lgardner, You ability to switch between multiple builds is truly amazing and an inspiration. Even though I have pretty limited space in my room, I’m going to try an assembly line approach on my next […]
Morning Louis. Looking Good, to loosely quote Trading Places.
After further review, I tend to agree with your hypothesis that the position of
the Star & Bar on the Avenger’s fuselage in relation to the side w […]
You. Have. NAILED. IT!!!!!!!!
Glad to know my hypothesis about the airplanes in the photo was right. That confirms it for the Essex shakedown cruise with CVG-9.
As to the prop painting: Waste not, want not!!
Thanks gents for the kind words………….. Today was spent painting various propellers and wheels. I have both completed on this particular plane. However, I have several more of these AM Avenger’s sitting […]
Man has it really been 5 Months ??? Where did the time go ??????
Today was a rather busy day at the Iron Werks………… I spent a lot of time painting wheels and propellers. Since this plane doesn’t […]
I have finished the weathering and sealed that with a glosscoat (GX-100 thinned with MLT)
After that I masked the eyes and the lights
After some flat coat (GX-113 + MLT) I could remove the masks […]
Saga continues, working on bumpers, and rear grill is made,
rear bumper was cut and moved 2mm back, made it flat horizontal, next to add curves under taillights after glue is hard and everything sanded.
I agree with Greg. It’s great to see you back at it again. The work you have done looks amazing.
I just noticed that the flight crew are wearing ties !!!! Your figure painting skills are far s […]
Glad you’re in modeling mode! Looking forward to the Mossie coming together.
OK, folks, here are some WIP pics…
It doesn’t look like much, but for those who know Tamiya’s Mosquito, this is a fair share of the grunt work before it all comes together. Wings and rear control surfaces […]
I’ll be watching this build with enthusiasm !!!! This just happens to be my favorite all time Mosquito……………. ever.
After watching your magnificent A-20 come to life during our Kasserine […]
Thanks David, appreciate the plug but really not necessary, but we are here to always be of help. Can’t wait to see what you got going. And the most wonderful thing is that you can spend some time at the bench […]
There is now a PR Mosquito at iModeler, David. Thanks for reminding me I hadn’t posted it back during If It’s May It Must Be Mosquito Models Month. 🙂
David, sounds perfect! There are a few who have a little unfinished business in RAF100 – myself included. I’d love to lodge this there too! Great call!
Paul! Just the man I wanted to talk to! Listen buddy, I washed out of the RAF build due to the aforementioned “life issues.” I was hoping for redemption–that this could count for that GB, however belated. When […]
So, I’m jumping into the GB rather late as far as actually posting something. I had originally intended on doing a Catalina, specifically the Cat that tracked the Bismarck, but that proved too ambitious for that […]
Welcome back, David. Great choice of subject – can’t wait to see your take on this iconic bird!
Yeah, there are lot’s of memorable quotes.
And Gary Oldman makes one of the best performances IMO in his career in that movie.
There is no prep work, part from removing the supports and […]
“Baadabum” “yeah big badabum” Iconic movie, excellent choice of model! Is the print just that – no sanding? looks like the printer did a fine job. (sorry about the choice of quote – all the good ones from the […]
