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.

Tonight isn’t much progress, but I’ll take it. While waiting for the overall Gloss Sea Blue to dry more thoroughly, I decided to paint the cockpit since the original paint was pretty […]
A great save!
Nice save. I fight a daily battle with Murphy’s Law on my models. There is no auto pilot with painting, lol
Now here’s a first – we started these models about the same time and I finished before you did. What’s up with that? 🙂 Looking good my friend!
And please don’t use glosscote on it!
Louis, unfortunately the travel trailer will be dull aluminum and weathered as it was in the movie. I didn’t know anything about this camper a few days ago, but I do now, isn’t model building great. You learn so […]
These are some excellent ideas……………..
Ironically, I have a nephew who works in the records department at the National Archives. I never thought of going this route before, but […]
Nice recover Louis! Very well done.
Louis @lgardner, thank you very much for the comps, I truly appreciate them. Yeah, the wheels turned out pretty good IMHO.
As for the 3 views, I’m not sure the ones I have are true enough for scaling. If you […]
Looking much better Louis, well saved !!
Thanks David @dirtylittlefokker
for the extension on this Group Build, and I’ll do my very best to get it done. I recently had a major setback with the Brubaker Panther jet, but I hope that problem has been […]
Amazing work here Allan !!!! Keep it up and before you know it……..
Hey James, @jamesb
It seems that we all suffer a setback when it’s the worst possible time for it to happen doesn’t it ??? My Brubaker Panther jet just got a complete new paint job because of one […]
This travel trailer is simply amazing…………… It went from a thought to this in practically no time at all. I also like how you included a little history into the trailer as well. There’s just […]
I gave the Panther a final wet sanding to get rid of any imperfections, and to make sure that none of the filler work was damaged during the paint stripping process.
The mishap was caused by a combination of […]
Hello Allan, @kalamazoo
No unfortunately that is simply oven cleaner that I sprayed on the Panther. In the pictures it looks this way because it is reacting with the paint. The blue is most likely a […]
The sides are on. I need to do the curved front and back windows and the door. Then it is ready for silver and red trim. The camper reminds me of a WWI tank.
Aero Flite trailers were built by Aero Lines at the […]
Thanks Tom. My friend and I have a joke, I wanted to be a Miniature DP, doing Practical Effects like the ones in 1941 and he pictured Mini Me. I worked with a company that had a motion control camera doing […]
Michael: If the people I am dealing with eventually say “yes” to the project we’re pitching to them (sorry, “Hollywierd superstition” prevents more info), I am going to make sure you are on the set design […]
Was that glossy dark blue paint stripper ?
