Thread: 2017 Small Scale Group Build (SSGB17)

Hi Marcello,

Yes they are in the main thread but we need the pictures uploaded to the album, (maximum of six pictures per model).

If you go to the pictures link under my avatar, it will take you to my albums. The album named "SSGB Finished Builds" is accessible to you all, so you can upload your pictures there.

Any problems, then give me a shout.

Good afternoon Chaps,

One more day to go and we'll be moving on to new GB subject matter. Just before the last 24hrs sneaks up on us, I will list those of you that have pictures of your completed builds documented in the SSGB Album. Album can be found HERE.

This is just as a reminder in case you thought you had already posted them up. Although the build phase of the GB finishes at midnight tomorrow you will still be able to get your pictures into the album for at least the weekend/maybe the following week.

I need to speak to Martyn about how we do the feature for this so don't panic.

So far then I've got the following...

Andy Claesens - Airfix MkI Female and Airfix PzIV and Academy Tu-22M Backfire B

John Ballard - PST PMZ-2 and Trumpeter ChTZ S-65

Dave Ward - Revell U-2363 and Tosco SCUD B TEL

Alistair "Bonesey" MacLatchy - Trumpeter M1126 Stryker

Scottie - Airfix Scammell Tank Transporter

Jim Barry - Scratchbuilt Bf109G-6 and Me 262

Steve Jones - Zvezda Pak 40

Fernando Nijhuis - Revell LRDG diorama and Revell Fw200 C-4 Condor and Revell Famo & Pak diorama and "Team Galm" diorama

Nick Richardson - "To the Volga" diorama

John Race - Dusty Bin diorama

Sean Emmott - Revell Handley Page Halifax

Alun Wells - Sea King Rescue diorama

Bobby Dale - "Somewhere in Dorset" and "In tanks we trust" dioramas

Mike Mortimer - Revell Monty's Caravan diorama

The Great Dillini - Airfix EE Lightning and Platz YF-4E and 2 x Sweet Zero Floatplanes

Peter Gillson - "StuGfest" - A, B, D, E, F, 2 x G, Howitzer, 2 x StuG IV.

Paul Eberle - "Rhine Crossing" diorama

Ron (Spanner570) - "Kamikaze" diorama

Jimbo - Soviet Aerosan NKL-16.41 diorama

So that is 19 of you producing the 40 builds listed above!.. Now I know there are loads more out there so let's see 'em!teeth 2

That just gets better and better. Still almost unbelievable that it is the scale that it is.thumbs upstar

As far as photos go, at least the end of the weekend but this may well slip further to the right. I've got to speak to Martyn as to how we'll do the article/feature so I'll make an announcement on the GB thread once I know more.

Keep fighting the good fight.

Thread: When an idea BACKFIREs... (SSGB17)
30/03/2017 10:50:54

Good morning all,

I'm not sure that this one will make the finish line but I will still push on . I managed to make some progress last night

Tail surfaces masked, leading edges painted, unmasked and fitted.

Tail masked for painting the dielectric panels.

Port wing leading edges masked, painted and unmasked.

And jet pipes painted and fitted.

There is still loads to do but with the tail now together she does look more like a Backfire. More tonight I hope.
