I'm certainly interested in more, i'm loving this bike one.
I'm open to all manner of things but quite fancy another civilian one but car related next please :idea:
Especially as i've just gotten a couple of US cars including a Plymouth Belvedere, (Christine), though don't know i'm ready to tackle that particular one yet.
A sci-fi Hmmm. That could be fun.
Steam sounds good
I like the idea of steam, but does it have to be plastic then? I've built a Meccano Burrell Showman's Engine in the past and could probably get a working stationary engine built from Meccano as well
How about an animal themed build (mostly going to be from scratch i admit) with an additional that the main subject should be set in a "non-distracting" (but relevant) small diorama?
Another idea would be to pick a short period of time in history and build any relevant model from that time (would be easy to check authenticity with the knowledge on here and t'interweb)
An Animal diorama? That could be fun.
I think that the thing to remember is that an SIG is going to be more subject bound than just a theme. I will try to put that better.
In my opinion a SIG would be tighter than a GB in as much that a single item of interest is picked out of the hat and the focus is placed on that thing. Admittedly the to SIG's that are running at the moment are quite open in as much as one is aircraft and old one and a 'newer' one. The biker build off being for any bike. It was proving hard to get any interest so the ropes were slacked off a bit.
I think that All that can remember the first GB the FW190 one. It was an excellent group build, but I would say more in the SIG area, as we all built a Fw190.
I am not trying to say we should go that road where We say the SIG is a xxxxx so all build one of those but I feel that the SIG should be held more in focus than a GB. Are you following this?
An example could be. Group Build. World Rally Championship, any car in any scene from the WRC. Where as an SIG would sound more like; WRC Build the winning car of the WRC 1979! Get the idea?
Enough waffle from me, keep those ideas coming.
So far we have:
Thinking hats on lads.
As it happens, I did one of those, ooh that loks interesting, i'll just put a little bid on and see what happens, things on a Chaos Gundam, (don't ask me, I have no idea either), i'd watched a couple of the Gundam builds on Plamo Tsukurou and thought they looked fun, this one is apparently a Chaos Gundam, (i think they call them mobile suits?), in 144th scale, no clue what that equates to in physical size, I believe they're supposed to be about 4-6 times the size of a human?
So I could fit that for either maybe? Alternatively I could scratch build a 72nd scale Death Star? (no i'm not serious)
I quite like the idea of steam but not sure what variety there is? maybe a steam powered starfighter
Not sure about the animal one.
