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, I thought I had commented on this build, but I guess I didn’t. It popped up when I was looking online for Bridges at Toko-Ri info for that diorama that has been kicking around in the back of my […]
Wow! She came out beautiful! I nearly choked when I saw the oven cleaner. Epic save. I’m still trying to figure out which blue to use. When I built the Tamiya Corsair I initially painted it with Navy Blue, but i […]
Fantastic! Go Robert! I’m sure David is watching!!
“It seems to me now almost incredibly wonderful that, with that swift fate hanging over us, men could go about their petty concerns as they did.”
This is for David where ever you are. Pegasus 1/48 Martian War Machine.
Nothing like a Panther jet! This is a real jem,Louis. The eleventh hour, the eleventh day, the eleventh month… Stay safe! @lgardner.
Great model from one of my favorite movies, Louis (@lgardner). It was worth the wait!
Ok I’ll try this again, as it looks like I can add pictures now.
I added the main landing gear.
I used ultra bright bare metal foil on the shock absorber oleo struts. It looks much better in my opinion […]
It’s hard to believe it has been over 7 months now since I have done anything with this build. Last night I buckled down and finished her up………… and I commend you on your F-14. It […]
This is great. Glad to see someone building this. George Barris was king back then. You’ve inspired me to pull my un-built Monkeemobile out of the stash and put it on the “to build” schedule. Be sure to share […]
Happy to see the flogging gave good results -yiihah. . . .
Okay, success! Little bit of touching up, then on to the decals and final assembly. Fingers crossed, touch wood etc..lol
Hey Louis @lgardner
I knew you’d had to do a couple of repaints but I figured you had finished yours by now.
I’ll keep flogging this dead horse and see if I can drag it across the finish line.
I’m going to un […]
Hi Alex @asekular
Before this coat, I airbrushed the entire model with Tamiya AS-12 Bare Metal Silver then masked off the walkways and leading edges.
Hey Rick, @fuzzmann
My 1/48 Monogram “Bridges of Toko Ri” F9F Panther jet has fought me every step of the way too. I had to strip mine down too, removing the paint AND the filler work accidentally, when my […]
Hmm, that is indeed strange. Tamiya’s FGP is one of my goto-s as well.
The only other reason that I can think of is if there was some grease on the surface of the primed model due to handling.
Anyway, it seems […]
Yes, the first two tries were applied over Tamiya Fine Grey Spray Primer which I had used with success with Mission Models Paint before. I was quite surprised that the Gloss Blue Sea Blue wouldn’t a […]
Hello Rick, @fuzzmann
did you apply any primer to your model before spraying the coat of blue paint? I’d expect this to help with problems you’ve encountered with attempts # 1, 2 and 3.
All the best,
Just joined, Rick @fuzzmann!
Good luck with your attempt!
