Have a kit half-built or half-painted? Have a kit that you figure you'll finish "someday". We have such a campaign for Armorama, Aeroscale, and Model Shipwrights, so why not Automodeler? Any kit for this group qualifies. Any type (engine, car, truck, motorcycle, tractor, forklift, etc), any scale.

Anyone interested? I also need a name for the campaign. The only name I can think of if "Garage Queens" but that's too close to Aeroscale's "Hanger Queens". "Clearing Out the Garage"?

I have a couple of "volunteers" for this Group Build, depending on the time frame.

While "Garage Queens" is very close to AeroScale's "Hangar Queens", it does fit well.

The time frame for these types of campaigns is for the whole year.

I will try to finish Tamiya's 1/20 Brabham BT46. As usual for me, it will be built out-of-the-box (no after-market parts).

I assume there will be more people willing to join once the new year starts.

Hmmmm, let me see:
'67 Charger
'67 GTO
'59 Caddy El Dorado
'53 Corvette
'71 Hemi "Cuda

That should take me a year or so!

I'm in for this.

Cheers, D

I haven't sent a proposal in because, usually, we need 10 participants. Not sure how many we need on Automodeler as there doesn't seem to be much traffic here.

Damian is correct. Due to AutoModelers low numbers, only 5 participants are needed for Group Builds over here.

The campaign is cancelled. Please join the "Unfinished Business 2018" campaign on Armorama instead. It is KitMaker wide.

Well, I'm only investing a cup o coffee a month into this page, so I know just exactly how much say I get.

However given the amount of fun on Automoddler I've had slagging Damien and Von Cuda for their auto preferences, I'm gonna miss that if I have to behave myself over with the tankers.

I know you are just mucking around and that you fully recognise the superiority of the Chev/GM brand over all others. You are obviously a highly intelligent and well-travelled individual and therefore could not possibly think otherwise!

superiority of the Chev/GM


Considering the 3 examples of GM hardware rusting in my driveway I beg to differ....

So, you have 3 pieces of GM hardware in YOUR driveway. Case closed 😎

They're rusting away faster than the Honda and Ford.

Looks like "Garage Queens 2018" is back on. A slight mix-up over on Armorama. I really want to see more activity here on AutoModeler and I figured a campaign would help.

Now, if someone would administer the site or at least campaigns, that would help!

More activity here would be great, more campaigns will definitely help and I have a few ideas.

I have put my hand up for the admin role either for the site or just the campaigns, waiting on Darren (CMOT) and Jim (El Supremo) to get back to me.

Thank you!
The best way to get people interested is to not only have postings of our latest buys and builds but also have a campaign or two running.
If D does the administration that would help.
I don't mind leading this campaign if that would help?
