Howdy Y'all
Hobby Lobby was selling off some models at a steep discount, picked up a Bat Boat. That will be my entry for this campaign.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

I'm onboard. I don't know what I'm going to build yet, but I do have quite a few Sci-Fi kits to choose from.

Have enlisted. Sci-fi isnt my usual modelling venue (ship and armour guy) but something different is always good.

Going to go with either BSG or some form of Gundam.

Hi David, yes Sci-Fi III ended. We are now talking about Sci-Fi IV starting this summer and open for enrollment.
To your point I will get an official tread started soon.



No worries, give me a shout if you need anything.

Ok Jesper, just joined the crew for SCI-FI IV! And the July 1st start works out perfect for me as well.
The good news is I've actually been gathering the bits for a SCI-FI Diorama for a while now, so maybe now I can finally complete a campaign!
My dio idea is based on the old cinematic classic "The Day the Earth Stood Still", 1951. ...a "what if" in 1/48 scale.

Greetings
Dave

Alex,
I always appreciate your imagination and look forward to seeing this build materialize.

Im thinking about an alternative history scenario where the Germans have provided the IDF with Leopards. In this timeline the Merkava was never developed and the Leopard 2A6I is now the MBT for the IDF.

Cant wait to get started on this!

Cheers!

I'm enlisted as well.

I'll probably do the Mars Mission idea. Convert Meng's Bomb Squad guys into astronauts. Maybe give them a rover and something to discover...hrmm...wonder what that could be.

I do a series of what-if mercenary units set in the Cold War. It's a great way to re-purpose old kits. I thought about doing something along those lines, but I'll squirrel that away as a back-up.

If time allows I'll properly finish off that alien vampire women project.

Regardless, it should be fun.

Dear All

Brent, thanks for the reminder.

All, thanks for participating - both the ones that finished and the ones that did not.

Remember any unfinished builds from Sci-FI I, II, III are allowed for entry into Sci-fi IV starting during the Summer.

We were 11 finishers in this campaign. I think that is pretty good. Ribbons have been awarded to all finishers. Let me know if I missed anybody.

I got this one finished, with a few days to spare even. The putty to smooth out the seem on the top of the main hull turned out quite nice. I painted a few spots in a darker gray for some subtle contrast, hopefully not too subtle. All in all, it looks okay next to my Romulan BoP.

Thanks a lot for the extension. My first trek into resign kits proved that they are much more time consuming so I switched over to an AMT Round 2 kit that I know I can get done in January. I am going to make this a Romulan as it was in the non-remastered TOS (I couldn't find a bird decal for the bottom in this scale that I was happy with).

Here is my starting pic from a few weeks ago.


Assembling the main hull left quite a seem across the top of the main hull so I threw some putty into it to try to smooth it out.




I just painted it a few hours ago so we'll see tomorrow how smooth I got the seem.

Sorry to hear you have been ill. Hope for a speeding recovery and to see the sub in Sci-Fi IV.

Hi Zon

Congrats on the new house and modelling area. I will submit a Sci-Fi IV at some point. Probably wait until the Godzilla campaign is finished or almost finished - maybe second half of 2018.

As usual unfinished builds from Sci-Fi I/II/III will be allowed in Sci-Fi IV no matter how the build has progressed.



That sounds great, Jesper, I've been so sick the last month I haven't got anything done on the sub. Hopefully by SciFi IV I'll be somewhat mobile...
