Interest in a "50 Shades of Gray" GB (Not about the book!)
Posted by Glamdring on Friday, December 20, 2019 9:22 PM

I've been envisioning a group build based on a play of words of the recent ladies' novel/movie series title.  Instead of romance though, I am thinking that the subject matter must be something of a predominantlty gray scheme.  Be it a modern aircraft, a post-war naval ship, a German tank in Panzer Gray, a light gray civilian vehicle, or even a figure of a Confederate or Wehrmacht soldier.

Really anything goes, as long as it is primarily a shade of gray.

If there is any interest, I'm thinking of a March start date, so as to not interfere with any other GB's kicking off in January, and with the usual 12 month window for completion

Clever idea. There's a problem though... I can't remember the last model I built that wasn't gray!

I guess this dude...

I'll watch this one.

I can tag along. I have an A-10 and an F-18 and I may end up with a Panzer before too long. So, I'm sure I can come up with something. I probably have a kit that would work that I forgot I even have.

I have had an idea for some time now to do a model as if it is a black and white photo with all greys like "olde photo'' but then the ired of masking the decals to be all grey aswell puts me off :-(

But masking the decals to be all grey as well puts me off :-(

You can scan the decal sheets into a computer and use some basic program to convert to greyscale and print your own versions on some white decal paper.

I may be overcommitting myself for next year, but I'm game.

Will you be allowing crossovers from other GBs?

Sure, crossovers would be fine.

I also envision making the build a challenge by building a subject outside the normal area of expertise, but that would by no means be a requirement.  Smile

I would love to be able to make my own decals but my computer skills are limited to forum work only ;-(

Hey Robert, I am interested in this GB, I have several airplanes that may fit the bill, as well as a ship model for a change of pace.
