Hi boys and girls

After a good Sci-fi VI campaign, I am wondering if people want to support a Sci-Fi VII campaign?

It would start 1st June and run for 6 months.

Same rules as always:

Operational Overview
This campaign is to have some fun on making alternative builds and letting creativity and fantasy run wild. How will the future look and how would the world look today if X, Y, Z had happened in the past.

To qualify for a ribbon your build should fit into one or more of the groups below:

Alternative history ie. World War II still going on in 1947ish, Third World War, zombie war etc.

OR

Sci-Fi ie. Star Wars, Star Trek, Battle Star Galactica, WH40k, Warmachine etc.

OR

Futuristic ie. Fighter jet, space craft, tanks, soldiers, ships etc. in year 2025.

The Rules and Regs
Enter as many as you like but each modeler will only get one ribbon.
* May be 25% started, if in doubt just ask. Exception to this rule are unfinished builds from the Sci-Fi I/II/III/IV/V/VI campaigns which may be finished for this campaign even if more than 25% finished.
* Any scale, any material
* One dated start picture, two progress pictures, and three finished pictures in the campaign gallery.
* Most important of all have fun and tell the story/idea behind your build. Let creativity run wild and make something out of the ordinary.

I'm in, but you might want delay the start a little to give it time to breath a bit as some of us are in a few other campaigns at the moment.

I'm definitely in and have way too many Sci-Fi kits in the stash, like to the tune of more than 40. 30 of those are SW related....

I may want to try the new Eagle Transporter for this one though, or Viper Mk II, or Viper Mk VII or...

Thanks for the support, guys! That makes us 6 plus me, so we just need three more.

I hear what you say about the starting date. What if we start it on 1st June and let it run for an additional two months until 1st feb 2021. How does that sound?

Sounds good to me. I'm in the middle of a GB on Auto Modeler right now. I'm trying to only start and finish one at a time so a later start is appreciated.

Sod it, count me in then ...

I have a Panther F that I could use for still going WW2 in 1947 with some mods and tweaks... Or I could venture into a Sci-fi model, which would be a first for me...

Jesper, is it ok with you if I take some photos of the unstarted DML Panther II which I will be using as my entry and the sprues still sealed and then start the kit and post the pics a bit later when the server issues are resolved as I can't upload anything at the moment and I don't want to fall to far behind ???
