This group build is to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain. It will run from 10th of July to 31st of October, 2015, following the dates of the battle.

The build is open to any scale and any subject that played a role in the Battle of Britain. While the Battle of Britain is foremost remembered as an air battle, builds including figures (e.g. famous historical figures from the battle), vehicles and armour (e.g. AA guns) and dioramas (e.g. airfield dioramas) are eligible provided a documented link can be established.

The model must be built entirely within the build dates to qualify, and the build should be accompanied by a thread in the group build forum documenting regular progress. Post your sprues at the beginning of the thread! By the end of the group build (and no later than 24 hours after the completion date) participants should post five pictures of the completed build in the group build forum which will be organised shortly.

To discourage cynical entries the build is open only to those who have been members of KiwiModeller for two months at the start of the group build and with at least thirty posts in the forums. So lurkers, get posting now if you want to enter! I will also vet for cynical or “gaming” entries and vote rigging.

No entry fee will be charged, but this is a good opportunity to make a donation to the upkeep of KiwiModeller.

The winner of the group build will be decided by popular vote. Voting will run for the week following the 1st of November, ending Midday the 8th of November. A deadlock will be decided by a separate run-off vote.

Voting is finished, and we have a winner! The He 111 finished with ten votes, just pipping second place on 8 votes. Thanks for the votes guys. :blush:

In second place, and the winner of the prize, is Kane/Xtr3meNZer with his 1/48 Bf 110c. This is well deserved as Kane's build thread had some great detail and the Bf 110 turned out very nicely indeed. Your prize will be in the post soon.



Thanks to everyone who took part in the build, commented on the build threads, or voted. And congrats to all those who got across the line on this one. This was a real pleasure to run. Thanks everyone. :cheer:

Congrats all. It was great just to have you all enter. Well done K2. I know how much you were chomping at the bit for the kit so it's awesome to see it go to a deserved home. Thanks too Grant for the work you put in and the contributions you have made to the GB. :)
