Lockdown GB
Posted by Theuns on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 12:28 AM

How about a GB that we can do during the "mad times" we are all experincing now.

I was thinking with most of the world in lockdown (here in South Africa we are shutting down in 36 hours for 21 days) we all need to have something to help us maintain some sence of normality.


Not a long outdrawn GB with loads of rules, just something where we can have some fun with it.

starting 26 April and run for 3 months.

Any subjects

any scale

doesnt have to be "authentic colours" anything that makes you feel good

started models OK up to say 20% done

crossover no problem

WIP pix please

If you want to make a model from parts of other projects nd come up with a Frankenstein ....why not :-)


What say ye !?

I'm in!  (I'm still considered "essential staff", so I am still working (for now), but I am totally in!

Sounds fun!  I'd jump in for sure.  I'd have a couple of small builds I could squeeze in during that time!


Best of luck on the lockdown,
