What about Cars to include military and civilian cars in any scale in any era in either military or civilian use- vintage cars, racing cars, jeeps, etc

Hi Pat,

While I'd probably have more interest in SciFi than Cars, I actually have no SciFi kits, and I have two Car kits waiting for me, so this gets my vote! ;)

Nice idea Pat, and I'd be in as have an unfinished t3 transport to finish if unfinished build allowed Or would a JGSDF light armour vehicle count as a car?

Anything with four wheels that looks like a car so yes I think

Or three wheels- reliant robin

Hi Pat,

Is something like a Jackal suitable (it's got 4 wheels !) or am I chancing my arm?!

Don't mind either way and might build an F1 car instead...

Cheers,

Hmmm it doesn't look like a car to me more like a truck chassis

I would have thought that a car GB would refer to essentially civilian subjects as opposed to dedicated miltary ones. There is of course a grey area in terms of the so-called technicals used in Syria, Libya etc.

Not sure what you had in mind Pat?
I have 1 car kit in the stash so I would be tempted into a cars GB.

I just thought that since there a lot of kits of military saloons it would be foolish to exclude them and if them then why no jeeps. The idea of the GB is to get people building so I think the scope should be as wide as possible

Well, if my counting is correct we now have enough votes, so this is in the Poll next month.

Pat, as GB Mod, can set the rules if it wins.

Come on Pat,
Cut me a bit of slack here. :)
They do have 4 wheels, a chassis, windows, engine ( petrol or diesel) seats, boot, what more do ya want!!! :D
When is there ever going to be a bus build on the forum!!! :shrug:
Both in 1/72 scale so not to big. The one below even looks like an elongated car! Perhaps even a Very Large SUV!
Cheers

Aaah Joe

Stick with the Sci-fi build that has now got its 5 votes, and don't be worrying about some car gb (even though it has 5 votes also).

You can do anything with that bus - maybe even a "steam punk" type conversion with a couple of pipes..... :-" :-" (that would fit into the Sci-Fi group build).

Or - ignoring group builds - you could do a diorama with that bus, and a suitable aircraft...(now that I think of it, I may have a surplus Ju 86 or Ju 52 airliner in 1/72nd that you could build to go with it. There are also Preiser figures available in 1930's garb to complete the set)
