    Yep!!
    Here you have the new 2018 GB Calendar!!!

    Just hope you liked the builds....and remember that you can add new themes and suggestions on the "Suggested Group Builds" that is running the entire year.

    We will have six GBs during the 2018. Three civilian builds and three military builds.
    Each one will have a period of four months to be complet.

    As always, for any doubt or question post it here.... :)

    Best regards
    Polux

    Civilian Diorama.

    Any subject and size that is NOT military. The diorama can depict anything civilian but no soldiers or military vehicles. So a bombed out street = fine. Bombed out street with soldiers/armour = nope!

    I'm new to the group build thing but I'm going to give it a go although all of the above are a bit outside my comfort zone...

    One question though: If this is the 2018 GB calendar, why are people proposing other builds for 2018?
    Is this just a suggestion or are you/they suggesting for 2019?

    Like I said, I'm new to the group thing ;)

    These are the GB builds decided by Admins the ones you see being suggested are ones that members are suggesting for next year, once they reach 10 people who are committed to the suggested build a thread is created.

    This year we have had a Phantom, E.E. Lightning, King Tiger and a Stuka GB suggested by members

    Aha, so you've got both! Great :)

    I sadly missed the King Tiger one this year but now I know and can start suggesting my favourites too!

    Cheers!

    Think i might well be tempted to join in on the F1 category simple because i have some kits that would fit that category.

    Does the NO mean no helicopters or no to the digital camo scheme Polux, and also has the aircraft got to have been in a winter camo ? or could you paint any? a SR 71 for example.

    This is a Cobra, but I have a Super Cobra kit could I paint it in this camo pattern ?
