My First Time Group Build

  • Ok folks. Joe here with the official post to open the My First Time Group Build. This was all started by deattilio on Sept 3 as a feeler. There have been a number of folks who wondered if this build was still going to happen as several people have purchased kits for it and the last post from deatillio was on Oct 6. Bish and I have agreed to host this build together. If deatillio comes back online we will relenquish the control back to him as host. Any how that being said, Bish and I are going to stick to all of the original rules as deatillio had them.

    Here are a list of the rules:

    Air, armor, auto, trains, ships, sci-fi or figures all wanted – the fact we all started with some form of a model is all that matters

    Acquire the first kit you ever built, original or reissue

    Apply the masterful skills you’ve gained since that first kit

    No after market resin

    No after market photo etch

    Scratch build details as desired

    After market decals allowed

    Post a photo of the kit pre-build

    Explain when, where, why or how you got into the hobby with your kit

    Post photos as you progress

    As you build, look at the project at hand to appreciate how far your tastes and skills have progressed with glimpses at the modern kits sharing space on the bench

    Set aside OCD and enjoy the build and what got you started in the hobby

    Start date: 01 December 2012

    End date: 01 June 2013

    Let Bish and I know what you are set to build and Bish will get a list going here. Thanks everybody, Joe

    AS OF 7 FEB 13 BISH AND I ARE EXTENDING THIS GROUP BUILD FOR A PERIOD OF TWO MONTHS. THE OFFICIAL END DATE IS NOW 01 AUG 13!!!

    This is to accomodate those who could not attain kits until a much later date than the start date, for those that were in the process of moving and getting re-set up and due to the fact that December was a busy month with the holidays so not much building could take place. Now lets resume building!! LOL, Joe

    Hi!

    How does this kind look? (hmm... Something weird happenend to the green color when I saved it Tongue Tied )

     

  • I like that. Make the text Italic, move the date down to the bottom of the pic. Maybe change the knife to a box cutter rather than a leatherman. (Just some ideas)

    Thanks Mikey. 

    Well Don´t have proper software to add text to it. If someone likes to add text to it here´s new one. Feel free to use it.

  • I should be able to add the txt. How did you alter the knife, or is that just a different photo.

      

  • Hows this.

      

  • That looks awesome. All the gear used for a first time builder. I like it.
