Gauging interest - A lousy kit CBP

31 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

We've had several threads about the various bad kits that are out there and lets face it we all have at least one in our stash.

How about a CBP based upon taking the proverbial sows ear and turning into a cool model? I have a AMT '67 GTO and a Revell IMSA Camaro that are spectacularly bad, and I've been itching to do something cool with them.

Interested??

The rules would be as follows

1. Start January 1, 2013 and end December 31, 2013.

2. It's got to be based upon a really lousy kit, which as we know is open to opinion, but no one is gonna call you on it. If you say it's lousy, that's good enough for me. It's all for fun after all. And hey, rebuilding a really nasty glue-bomb would also fit the spirit of this CBP.

3. We may have a popular vote for the best build at the end.

4. That's about it. Anything goes. Any style, genre or scale.

So who's in?

Note: this thread is for gauging interest only. So don't go posting up pics of your planned build yet. If we have enough people interested, I'll close this thread and start another shortly before the new year.

I think we can all think of a few, and I think that's what will make this fun. We could get all sorts of builds.

Well I think we have enough interest in this to make a go of it.

I'll start up an official build thread before the first of the year.

This should be fun.

Interesting idea. I am sure I could find an awful kit. If somebody can make this into something cool, I would vote for it:

I get sick just looking at that kit.

Yeah those Camaros are not nearly accurately shaped, but I'd love to get my hands on a couple of those dual turbo'd engines.

Have picked out a couple kit's.Will post pics and details in the official thread/topic.

12 months is way too long for me to work on 1 build (generally I can complete a build within 1 to 2 months).

So if its ok Rob, id like to build 2

Whatever trips your trigger Luke. I made it a year because work, weather, and our lives in general get in the way of building a lot of the time. Look at the Cannonball CBP. 20+ people signed on to start in Feb. but only seven people completed their model in 10 months. Since this is just for fun, an open time frame seemed the best idea.

I have one of those Monogram Camaros on the bench, too. The body just doesn't look right, but I think it can be turned into nice model.

Haven't figured out yet, what should I build for this CBP. I'll look what I have on my stash.

Sounds interesting!! Since someone is doing the Revell Beetle, I'll check my stash some more or I could definately get one of those glue bombs started!
