Anthony P Memorial Build
« on: January 20, 2014, 02:41:14 am »
Right lads are we still up for this ? Details here http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,38094.45.html

I propose running from 27th Jan to 27th May. It would be in the Theme Build section and the Theme would be "Za Rodina" ie anything Soviet, Soviet satellite (real or imagined) or anything vaguely Soviet'ish. The idea would be to honour the man and his work.

I may be moving house soon, so the stash is packed away. May I offer a backstory or two instead, for anyone who wishes to cut styrene  on them?

Well, "Za Rodina!" would cover just about everything I build, so I'd definitely be up for this.

And I not only have a lot of half-built stuff that needs an incentive to finish, but I've also got some ideas centred on my large collection of unbuilt Airfix Pe-2s - - -

I have a half-built project that would be ideal, and a few other possibles. My contribution might have to wait until the middle of the period though.

Neo: How can that be?

I've two Mil based projects in mind, might give me the motivation to get them started.  Maybe also a part started project, if I haven't lost any of the bits.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I have an idea that I have yet to get around to building and this would be the impetus!

I'm In  :thumbsup:

I've got an almost completed model that would suit this build and it'd only need the cockpit painted and some decals and it'd be done.  ;D

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I suspect you will be slightly exhausted after all that exercise!
