Winter 2018 6"X 6" Build Challenge
« on: December 30, 2017, 07:15:14 PM »
 This is it. Rules are simple, 6"X 6", 3"X 8", 2"X 12", or anything smaller. Detail or add on to it as you wish or build it straight from the box. If you want to make it part of diorama, have a ball. Try not to over complicate things people, it build threads on the forum we're looking for. Let's dust off them shelves and open some boxes. Use this thread to show us what your building and start a build thread under the Kit Building board. Tax Day will be here before you know it!

I have this small kit I found a couple of years ago. Maybe this will help me join the fun!

I didn't follow directions.  I started my build thread before I posted what I'm building - here. Sorry. I'm building the Monster Model Works Yard Tower. Build thread link:http://modelersforum.com/kit-building/monster-modelworks-yard-tower-second-annual-raymo-challenge-2018/msg85348/?topicseen#new

I guess I'll give it a go.  I have to shuffle the order of the builds I'm going to be working on slightly.  Next up in the rotation would have been the Fine Scale Miniatures Bailey's Produce Company (Jewel Series No. 2) but there's no way I could have finished that one by April 15th.  So, I'm going to take on the FOS Scale Models Rothman's Pawn Shop & Thornhill Liquor which has a footprint of 4" x 6".

Just wanted to ask re the size - 6 by 6 = 36, 8 by 3 = 24, 12 by 2 = 24.  So is this right, or should it maybe be 6 by 6, 9 by 4, 12 by 3?

I'm 'armchair' participating at the moment - looking at which kits I might build if I had the time to do it!  I've narrowed it down to four!

Cheers, Mark.
