I was just wondering if there would be any interest from anyone in having a campaign/group build which would just involve the large scale engine kits.

Kits like this one.

Revell 1/4 Visible V8 Engine

We could call it: "Drivers, Start Your Engines" or something like that. Or to quote the first movie in the series - Mad Max..........."Kick It In The Guts Barry"!

I was just curious as I thought it might kind of cool. Please feel free to share your thoughts.

Thank you,
Randy

Well Richard I tried. Guess this isn't appealing to anyone else.

Thank you for your interest.

It's not a bad idea, just perhaps appeals to a limited number of people.
Maybe start a build log on one and invite others to join in on that?

Why not open it up to all scales?

Cheers Rob.

Thanks for the ideas guys. Anything would be fine I guess. I was just curious what others thought as I was given this kit and don't really know if I want to build it or not. My neighbors were going through some stuff to get rid of and they gave me the kit and some aircrafts books. In the past they gave me some model paints and model glue. Anyway when I got the kit I thought maybe it would make a different idea for a campaign. If it doesn't take off it isn't a big deal. I was just throwing the idea out there.

Thanks,
Randy

I still think a group build for engines would be a good idea!

Cheers Rob.

Thank you Rob. I guess for now it isn't of interest to anyone else. Maybe sometime further down the road.

Guess I will figure out what to do with the kit I have as I really don't need it for anything.

Thanks,
Randy

Well I gave the kit away. So as I no longer have a kit that would meet the requirements for the campaign I am officially cancelling the campaign suggestion.

Thank you to those of you that showed interest in the idea.
