Group Build Title: Convoy!
Group Build Leader(s): @barkingdigger
Group Build Description: This campaign is aimed at anything truck-like, essentially anything bigger than a Jeep but smaller than a Liberty Ship that moves cargo (and other stuff) from A to B with wheels. We’re talking Beeps, Deuces, Blitzes, Kenworths, Macs, Volvos, and any other rig that was originally designed on a chassis to haul stuff, even if your variant left the factory kitted out for something more specialized. Fire truck? Great! Recovery truck? Sure! DUKW in WW2 glory? Why not? Or a DUKW-tours modern conversion? Super! And if you’re into civvie trucks that’s great - I have a soft spot for the old AMT 1:25 rigs. And how about the classic Aussie outback Road Train? If you’d rather convert a tanker to the Mad Max 2 rolling pillbox that’d be fine too! My aim is to be as inclusive as possible, so we can all have fun building what we enjoy. Let’s say any scale, any country, any type, military or civilian or both!
And since the more ambitious builds often stall and take time, I’m open to existing part-builds (say not much more than 50-60% complete?) that get finished up for our deadline. (My own builds can stall for months or years…) You’ll need to post a “start” pic, and some “in-progress” pics along the way - preferably with stories and comments about the build.
Since I’m a slow builder I’m thinking a year, starting 1 March 2023.
Event Details: (Remember to click “Going” if you want to join the build!)
Completion Award: Anyone with “finished” pics by the deadline will get a badge that has yet to be designed.
A Note about Awards: The following text is a reminder that in order for people participating and finishing their projects to receive a badge on their forum profile, they will need to provide their account username to the group build leader by the completion date of the build. The leader will then provide this list to the site admin who will bulk award the badges to those users who have finished the group build. If you don’t provide your username or finish the project on the timetable the leader has setup you will not be able to receive an award.
