Models, Inc. Group Build 2022 (Join If You Dare)
Posted by John 3:16 KJV on Thursday, November 4, 2021 3:21 PM

     This year, your ingenuity gets put to the test. If you have ever watched the Food Channel show Chopped, you'll know that competing chefs get to make meals which must include at least four specially chosen, mandatory ingredients no matter what dish each individual chef chooses to make. These ingredients may be hard to work with or easy; but either way, they must be incorporated into the dishes. In this group build, we will model in a similar manner! Here's how:

In this GB, three "ingredients" (see I'm going easy on y'all and not doing four) will be selected by myself and the first two brave souls who will dare to join this GB by volunteering in the comments below. After this is done, all modelers in this group build MUST incorporate the three selected ingredients into their models and/or dioramas somehow. 

So, what specifically do I mean by ingredients? Unlike in Chopped, the ingredients aren't necessarily edible. What I mean by "ingredients" is certain elements that must be included in our builds. These elements could include things as easy as a specific color (i.e.-red), things as unique as to come from elsewhere than the modeling table (i.e.-something from your backyard), or things as difficult a specific animal. [I know not all specific animals are difficult, but they can be! One forum member suggested an octopus!] Let me know if you have any questions about the build. Ok, time for the:

GROUND RULES-

-No foul/rude behavior or words, of course

-No scantily or not-at-all clad women on models & No distasteful "elements"

-All models and/or dioramas entered must conform to the requirements and theme of the group build description; in this case, they must have ALL the selected "elements" incorporated into them

-Crossovers Allowed 

-Group build begins January 1, 2022, and runs through December 31, 2022. Eager to start? Knock yourself out and start in December 2021. It's ok. 

REQUIRED INGREDIENTS:

Eats

1) Red, but not via a decal.

2) Frog

3) Sand

 

And, The Badges:

     “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

     For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”  - John 3:16-17

TheMongoose is in! TBD of course, unless I come up with a telepathic, osmotic, premonition of the "ingredients" before you do Ditto

Since the GB is now safe from my monkeyshines in selecting an ingredient, I will also throw in.  At least we won't have to include an octopus theme!  Stick out tongue

No worries, Gamera! I hope you're enjoying your vacation.

If turtles is what you want, turtles you can get!!! Lol

Gotta love reptiles! I've got a gecko--Ira. At least you didn't pick "gecko"...That would be really hard! Cool

Thanks, Mongoose! There are a lot of options to choose from, I suppose!

Ok you guys have sealed the deal for me...Poison Dart Frogs is my choice. Some good ideas using that as an ingredient!

Ok, I'll have that added. Wondering if you'd consider the simplification of doing Frogs, though, instead?Embarrassed Your call, but it would give us some more options. Either way, I'll figure out something...Tongue Tied Lol

...absolutely. I was thinking along the lines of these guys if it fits within the rules, i.e. the Dodge "Dart" and the "Phrog" helicopter. Does that fit or does it need to be more literal and we have to include the object? I got specific thinking the poison dart frog had lots of color patterns and 3 different things to do with it in terms of poison, dart, and frog. Stop me if I've strayed from the fold here, lol i may very well have. Lots of time to rethink this as we don't start till January right? Feel free to give me a course correction skipper Yes

If you went with the poison, dart and frog, that would open up more possibilities to go with the other's... maybe a Delta Dart (a/c), Poison Pinto (car), or any type of frog ( NATO codename) frogfoot.
