Simply "destroyed" works for me...

I've got a resin kit to convert the 1/1000 Refit into the self-destructed version...

Shall we put this to a vote then?

I am in the very same boat as you!

:lol:

If this pass I will just retake a TOS Enterprise that is in standby. Actually it already fell apart once along the building, so I can consider it as a wreck restoration!

:mrgreen:
Thanks,

Yan.

I'm tossing one out there. Wrecked ships. Blasted, destroyed hulks. Might get me off my butt and start participating in the forum more.
What is allowed/not allowed? Kitbashed wrecks? Buy-a-wreck? Buy-a-wreck add on parts? 3D print wrecks? Um, asking for a friend :)

So when are we going to start the 2017 GB?

Last year at this point we already had started it...

Fair enough (and I agree). I'm all for establishing concrete guidelines so that everyone's operating under the same rules. A decently made wrecked kitbash should not have to compete with a well-made model that used wrecked parts that the modeler assembled and painted.

OK, guess I'll head up this one - If someone else wants to take over later is fine, but for now lets start making some ground rules...

2017 Group Build Rules
June 1st to December 31st, with voting until January 31st (all dates are open for change)
  • Broken / Destroyed Ships of Trek
    • Ships heavily battle worn, slapping a "burn mark" won't cut it

Main Catorgories:
  • Kit Bash:
    • Made from any kits/materials, but must be recognizable as a ship
    Pre-made add-ons:
    • Any purchased add-on pre-made resin parts added to standard kit parts
    OOB to "trash" :
    • Any standard kit (resin or styrene) made to look destroyed or heavily damaged
    Kits with lighting:
    • No holds barred - anything goes
Rules:
Must be done by Dec 31st (open for change)
Participants must not start before the beginning date of June 1st (open for change) - with proof of start photo
Voting will be help by poll after closing date

Prizes:
As of right now, none - Bragging Rights
But I can offer up printing of 5 (8.5x11) pages of decals (winners choice) - others are welcome to chip in donations for prizes like last years contest

Sounds good. If I consider myself with enough competence to take part it will be my first wreck model!
Thanks,

Yan.
