Ken, I was hoping I could join this build.  I know I didnt complete the 3rd Berny Build with my F-4G; I was a little ambitious with my return to the hobby last year and thought I could do it.  I found that I had a lot of things that intimidated my abilities at the time.  I am now ready to tackle this project and would like to resubmit the 1/48 Hasegawa F-4G to the line-up if possible.  Thanks, Jeremy

Ken,

Put me down.  I will be starting the 1/350 Academy Indianapolis soon for the 45 build. That's as good as any of my multiple builds this year.

Fourth Annual Berny Memorial Group Build
Posted by Son Of Medicine Man on Sunday, February 8, 2015 4:35 PM
Greetings fellow modelers,
 
Welcome to the Fourth Annual Berny Memorial Group Build.  As a few of you know, Berny, aka Berny13, passed away a little over three years ago. He was an avid modeler and a good friend.
 
The First, Second and Third Annual Berny Memorial Group Build were very successful. When putting the first build together, we tried to find out what planes he was associated with while he was in the United States Air Force and use that list as a theme. But as we started going through all of his posts, we realized that he had modeled almost every subject possible.
 
He started out with cars. At one point he modeled armor. And when he did model planes, he even modeled Migs, so it seemed that nothing was off limits. I also know that he had an attitude that you should at the very least enjoy building your model. So we finally decided that there would be no particular theme to this build except one. HAVE FUN!
 
This is not an exclusive club for people who knew Berny.  Anyone can join this build!
 
So the rules to this build will be very short and simple. YOU HAVE TO PARTICIPATE! A group build in my opinion is supposed to bring people together and share ideas, help each other with problems, answer questions, and even proudly show your daily or weekly accomplishments with.
 
We are going to start the build on Berny’s birthday, which is February 22. Anything and everything that you can build is acceptable (within the restrictions of this site of course!). It can be something you are building on another group build. You can build as many models as you like. Beginners and experts alike are welcome. This build will last one year, ending on February 21, 2016.  Everyone can start signing up now and I will add you to the roster.  Please include the kit (manufacturer, scale, etc.) that you are planning on building.
 
All finished builds will be entered on the first page of the build. This is not a contest of speed. It is a contest of fun.
 
Here are the badges.  You are encouraged to pick one up if you are participating.  You don't have to wait until you have completed your build.
 
 
 
 
Ken
