GROUP BUILDS > The Civilinise/Militarise it GB

The Rules

(1/26) > >>

NARSES2:
Right here are the proposed rules for the second GB of 2015.

We haven't been strict in the rules about the definition of civilinise/militarise as to be honest we need extra server space to cover every eventuality your fertile minds could come up with. Therefore if anyone is unsure whether their proposed builds fits into the GB or not contact the Moderators and after some discussion amongst themselves they will decide one way or the other. The overall plan is to be reasonably lenient but the spirit of the GB will be the overriding factor in any decision. That of course and to have fun  :thumbsup:

Your Moderators in this GB will be Mossie and Modelling_Mushi. Now the benefit of having 2 is that we have cover over the 3 months. The down side (if you can call it that) is they need to communicate with each other over some questions relating to the GB, so be patient.

I will not be acting as a Moderator but will provide the actual Mod's with any back up and help they need. I will also wield the big stick  ;D Seriously lads we don't want to be strict we want you to have fun so keep to the spirit of the GB and we'll be ok - after all you voted for it  :thumbsup:

So the proposed rules of this GB are as follows.

1. The GB runs from the 1st of June 2015 till midnight of August 31 2015, . Extensions may well be considered dependent on the bribe amount  ;D  
    Extended to midnight Sunday 13th September.  Bribes successful!

2. The GB basically means you take anything originally designed for military use and make a civilian subject from it or vice versa. Military equipment being used by the military for non military purposes eg : humanitarian work is not included, if you take the M to C path then the finished subject must be civilian. When I let the Moderators see these rules they mentioned the use of equipment by Government/non Governmental  agencies. Now this could be a sticky point, but we have decided to deal with it as and when the need arises. Otherwise we will just get into a lawyers dream  :rolleyes:

3. The GB welcomes models, profiles and stories and anything else your fertile minds can think of.

4. Models already started are allowed as long as major building work has not started before the GB begins.

5. Finished models and profiles to be posted (with picture and link to build thread) in the finished builds thread within the overall GB thread in this Board..

6. There is no rule 6, never EVER ask about rule 6

7.  Have FUN  

8. If you want to comment on a build profile/model, please do that in the model/profile threads and NOT in the completed build/profiles threads, if a comment is made in the completed build threads, they will be moved by the mods.

So there you are lads. Comments, proposed modifications welcome and to be honest we may still be finalising these during the early days of the GB. So please bear with us. Hopefully I'll get my act together quicker next year.

Rules look good  :thumbsup:

For the military to civilian I lean more towards non-government entirely (ie: a NASA operated SR-71 or XB-70 would not meet the intent of the build, but if some civilian cobbled together a SR-71 and went to set some records, that would be fine.)  Perhaps some examples would help before the lawyers get too involved?    

Examples of organizations that would meet the civilian intent: Cousteau Society, Greenpeace, Blackwater, Sea Shepards, equipment sold or leased back to and operated by a manufacturer, contractors, (like a radar test bed) etc:

Examples that do not meet the intent: FAA, DERA, Customs, Coast Guards, NACA/NASA, Qinetiq (yes I know it is "private"), Interpol, NSA, CIA, MI6/SIS, DGSE, etc.

Gray area: local Police MRAP, firefighting vehicles, national park service, schools, etc.

Just my 2 cents, I defer to and thank the moderators!

Darryl Greenamyer Rules OK!  :thumbsup:

Thoughts of a red and white SR-71 exceeding Darryl's 988 mph record in the 'Red Baron'......  ;D

The National Park Service did/may still operate a couple tanks and artillery pieces to fire at avalanche sites.

Hmmmm... NPS A-10 as a fire spotter and avalanche control......

That was exactly what I was thinking when I typed it (no I don't plan to build that, my entry will be much slower  ;))- would have loved to see, hear, feel, the RB-104 Red Baron record run- 988 on the deck (and maybe faster) heard it shattered car headlights  :o
