Got you on the roster Ben.  Those are some fantastic builds!  Jawdropping stuff - that should get a few folks motivated Yes

Thanks,

John

Now that is how to get me motivated. I'm excited about this GB and haven't even started yet. Definately count me in on this one! I will choose the car to build and let you know shortly. 

Can you tell I'm excited for this group build????

My IJN Yamato is around a week or two from completion and this will be n-e-x-t, bumping everything else on my GB list.

I'd be dissapointed if it wasn't weird :)  Something like the Tyrrell 6 wheeler or the Brabham fan car? Got you on the roster.

Thanks,

I am definitely "F1 Curious".  I am the slowest car around the track, but sign me up please.

The truth is I'm trying to get a car modeler buddy to build something, so nothing like a taunt to get both of us started.  But I'm warning you all, I'm going to do something weird!

Thanks,

Phil Hill and Mario Andretti.

Tough call. I've always partial to Richie Ginther and the Honda F-1 car.

Don't sign me up just yet.

OK. In the stash: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Formula One Group Build 2022 - CLOSED
Posted by keavdog on Friday, March 11, 2022 10:28 AM
The Formula One series originated with the European Championship of Grand Prix motor racing of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.  What is now known as Formula One started in 1950 and has become the pinnacle of motor sports racing.  There's no lack of excitement and drama... just watch the last race in Abu Dhabi from last year where the championship came down to the last very controversial lap.  Formula One has an extremely colorful history with such great names as
  • Juan Manuel Fangio
  • Jim Clark
  • Emerson Fittipaldi
  • Michael Schumacher
  • Sir Jackie Stewart
  • Sir Stirling Moss
  • Alain Prost
  • Ayrton Senna
  • James Hunt & Nikki Lauda - portrayed in the 2013 movie Rush
And this list goes on.  The current rivalry of Lewis Hamilton (could be best of all time) vs Max Verstappen is a lot of fun to witness.
 
For the group build - 
  • Any scale/era Formula One car (must have completed at least one lap in a Grand Prix)
  • And as a nod to our history - any European Championship Grand Prix car prior to Formula One
  • Crossovers welcome
  • Starts with no more than 10%
  • Participation and many pics a must.
Runs from the start of the 2022 Formula One season in Bahrain March 20th 2022 through March 20th 2023.
