30,000 ft, maybe we should start the engine! Boeing Build starts June 15th
Posted by modelcrazy on Saturday, May 16, 2015 12:24 AM

Ok, it’s time to start a pre build thread to introduce, remind and pencil in members for the 2015, 2016 Boeing Build.
This build will start on June 15 2015 to commemorate the first flight of Boeing’s Model 1, Boeing’s first production model, and well run a year till June 15 2016, Model 1’s 100th anniversary.
It will be run by CodyJ and myself, with yours truly as host and CodyJ as co-host.

The rules will be simple.
1. It is open to ANYTHING Boeing, Boeing partners, and Boeing acquired companies, i.e. McDonnell Douglas, Bell etc.
2. As stated above it will last a year + 1 day.
3. Crossovers are allowed.
4. PE, AM, scratch building is allowed.
5. WIP pics area must, also consider posting a different WIP thread to show off you outstanding work to others who aren’t watching the GB.
6. Partially started build are acceptable.
7. Join anytime during the timeframe.
8. Any scale, as many builds as you like.
9. Have fun.

This build is wide open to whatever you can think of Boeing related, Biplanes, Bombers, Fighters, Airliners, Missiles, Space and companies like Ford and BMW are even partnered with Boeing.

Here are some links to get some ideas.

Boeing Planes  Certainly not the entire list.

I have a list of some who are/were interested since its conception last August. If you were interested and I forgot you, sorry, I simply didn’t find the post were you expressed interest. There has been quite a bit of reference to this upcoming build over the months in several different threads.
Let me know if you want to/still want to jump in.

(I like to offer more than one, mainly because I can’t decide)
