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.

For your enjoyment………….
David, I’ve just realized your F7 is a biplane !!!
Interestingly Louis, that’s EXACTLY what they did in the movie, training a “small person” to dive in a little cage so a 16ft great white looked like a 20+ footer in the cage scenes. The shark that destroyed the c […]
Do It David !!!!
May the force be with you………………….. I have even devised a method that would allow you to fill the aquarium with resin and not have it weight […]
David, 2 words… Do it!
Really cool subject,
i will be following your progress.
Louis, really, don’t tempt me with ideas like this. I’m now just two minutes away from looking up old aquariums on eBay…
And the Pegasus model comes with a cage! And a diver! Ditch the camera, make a har […]
Thanks, Anthony. Appreciated.
Looking really good David.
Appreciate the thoughts, James. The more I think of this the more I’m tempted to build the shark.
We’ll see how the boat goes, and take it from there. It’d make a lovely set piece on display and I’d h […]
Sorry to hear that you all have been affected by illness. It’s definitely going around. I wish you all a speedy recovery…………..
It’s been a while since I looked at this thread. You have definitely […]
Nice progress David, @dirtylittlefokker. Sorry to hear you are feeling the symptoms. Pay attention to it! We’ve been hit pretty bad here in the states. Last Thursday the wife texted me that she had been […]
Well, despite the best efforts of the ‘flu, or whatever the hell it is, I managed a few minutes with the ‘Orca and started work on the gunwale support.
Now she’s beginning to look like a boat.
Made more progress than expected and almost finished the frame for the hull…
And I comparison to the plans it actually shapes up pretty well.
I am half thinking that if I can […]
Thanks, Stephen. Movies we watch as kids are just magical. I think especially if life wasn’t great – an amazing escape.
And hey, the kid’s on a roll! We have three dimensional structure!
This model looks ripe for figures …Roy Scheider chumming the waters with a cigarette in mouth before, the words ” You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” Finding a 50 inch Shark…with a full set of teeth would […]
“Here lies the body of Mary Lee,
Lived to the age of a hundred and three.
For fifteen years she kept her virginity,
…not a bad record for this vicinity.”
So, we have a little progress. I have to say I’m […]
Matilda, I can guarantee if the cat tried anything like that, it’d be his last act before he became a nice pair of black slippers…
Looking forward to your next ‘what if’ Build.
David, when you hear DUN DUN theme (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OC8Ncg1ipN8) in the house, your cat is going to push Orca from the table
Thanks, Michel. I can feel the stirrings of an epic, here. Maybe not the 500-plus posts of the Enterprise, but it’d be great to have you along.
