Before I continue with a description with this Sepcial SIG and outline the rules, can I politely ask that no one else creates any Topics in this section appart from the three combatants. This is to keep it easier for everyone to navigate and enjoy this SIG. You can, of course, leave comments within the Topics as per a normal GB build. Thank you. Nigel

Okay, now that all three have accepted the challenge I will explain what is about to happen.

Each Contestant are being sent a model kit, one is 1:72 scale, a 1:32 scale and a 1:25 scale.

The 3 contestants have no idea what they are getting until they open their package.

They will have until the end of May 2016 to complete the model.

They may, if they so desire, use after-market items to make a diorama/display, but are not allowed to use any AM products on the kit. Adding figures is allowed (one kit already has figures included in the kit itself). The 1:32 scale kit does require an AM product which is available at ModelsRGo. (I was unable to get this in time, but you might have some in stock, or something similar). One kit does come with an Eduard Big Sin package with photoetch.

At the end of the build a poll will be set up by M.brindos (Mike) for a people's vote on who you consider is the winner.

The prize....well there isn't one (you just got a free model [wink] ) ... what is at stake is your pride.

So who are the three contestants...

Contestant no.1 is the very first member to get the Top Gun Award...Brundledonk (Peter). Unable to contest the last GB due to a wonderful 1:1 scale build of a new kitchen, and the lost of a Unicorn called Trevor.

Contestant no.2 is the current Top Gun, for the last two GB's ...vdbo76 (Fabian). What can I say....this going to be fun. (I know what model he is getting [rofl] ).

Contestant no.3 is a master of tricks and producing some of the greatest WIP reports. He goes out of his way to help so many others, unselfish, honest and retro....TedUSA (Ted).

Once each contestants has received their packages they can contact me and I will tell them where to create a Topic for their build and display their kits.
I will announce the commencement once all three have displayed their kits.


I'm loving this.....brilliant, and fair play to you three for being who you are...great friends ... great modellers ... et al

Good Luck.

I want to thank the following people who have helped in making this come to life.

Mike, Peter, Fabian, Ted, and Bobby who allowed me to do this crazy novel idea. Good on you all, this what Forums are all about.

There is, however, one person I really have to thank, for helping me come up with the idea and encourage me to overcome obstacles to believe that this could happen. She is very shy about having her name mentioned on the forum but it's enough to say that she has been, and always will be my soul mate (I can hear all you guys going ahhh!....and a little sob from someone in the balcony....yes you....).

Seriously, which goes against my slogan and philosophy, you're all great...all I ask is you enjoy this Nemesis Battle.

Bring it on......

I'm expecting to see blood !!
I'm hoping to see blood [biggrin]

I'm hoping for something a bit Spartacus,
like gods of the arena or something,
I'm hoping we get to see a few christians get
eaten by lions whilst the gladiators warm up... [smile]

Christians eaten by lions?--are you thinking Men, women, children, or all three? it was pretty  G O R Y.
AKA "Gladiator" with Russell Crowe.Some favorite lines:... "Wait for my signal and unleash HELL!!" or...... "Its the frost, makes the blade stick"

Just to keep you updated.

I've checked all the kits and will soon have them all wrapped up later today. I will be posting them on this Friday coming, and I know that some of you will receive theirs before the others...Ted's will take the longest (sorry).

Some of you have been asking for clues (it's like christmas all over again), well there won't be any...well actually that's not technically true you've all been given great clues already (and one or two red herrings !).

Ted, I'm not even going to ask what the tissues were for. Men only use tissues for four reasons, they are either delliriously happy; over excited; scared s*#tless; or they have the Man Flu. [rofl]

....and on that note I have to find some tissues as I have the flu....

Glad you like it Paul...it is a bit different...but it's going to be fun.

I can't wait to see what they have to build. I wonder if their respective parnters/friends could take a photo just as they open the packages....

....now there's an idea.

Fabian you know I can't tell you, but you will need a steady hand and plenty of spare blades when building the model.
What modelling knife do you use ?

Looking forward to this but am a little nervous as to what the kit might be because I don't know if you've noticed but Nigel doth have a serious sense of humour, so Im expecting something completely hatstand lol.

@ Fabian

That looks like some of that Morrocan scatter material that I saw some Rastafarians applying to a diorama by putting it in a cigarette paper and blowing onto their diorama

@ Paul

There probably will be blood as I have a natural talent for self harm whenever sharp objects are in my hand

@ Ted

Tissues and the Internet go together like peas and carrots, why do you think they invented the mouse to be used one handed

@ Nigel


Yes Trevor is still very much AWOL, I am thinking I should have painted the kitchen with Alclad and then at least he might have turned up to help with the grouting or something.

But I still have Fluffy to help me out and he has gone through somewhat of a change over the holidays ( if you believe in something hard enough it becomes real )

May I present to you Fluffy 2.0



I will be taking him through some significant upgrades over the coming weeks ( I'll post some pics as I go along ) Fluffy has been telling me that the latest fashion in hell for the young and about town skull is a kind of steam punk terminator look so I'm more than happy to make his dream come true.

Despite his new look he is still the same old fluffy but I have got him some new mincers ( they are hazel now and not blue) but I'm planning to fit some Arnoold type red LED peepers as the upgrade goes along

Fuffy looks great mate.

I will say I think I've given you all enough clues.

These are serious model kits and you are all going to be rather suprised...that's all I'm saying.

Glad you've joined in Pete, I understand you are pretty busy, so I thank you.

Hey Fabian you aint Ice Man, Apatish is Ice Man, you're Top Gun [wink]

And besides, after a round of your "Hand Steady Lotion" it'll be more "hey man" than Ice Man [biggrin]
mind you, it does work, I have tested it for myself and confirm my
hands are very steady when at rest or mildly comatose..... 


Anyhow...

So Nigel, maybe this is a question you can answer,
do the "combatants" (Gladiators ?) have to build the model as per the
instructions or will they be kit bashing it into robots with lasers for eyes ? [biggrin]
