Jesper, thanks for hosting the Campaign. Today begins my hosting of the Godzilla Campaign. Sci-Fi III was very cool.

Yes Jesper, thanks for Sci-Fi III! I wasn't much of a Sci-Fi builder but your campaigns have changed that. Hope there's a Sci-Fi IV sometimes in 2018; you've done a great job on these campaigns.
Now on to the Godzilla campaign.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Brent, no ribbons yet.

A couple of the participants requested an extension until 1st february, so I reward ribbons at that time to make it easier.

However, it is possible to award ribbons more than once, so if you cannot wait I can award some now and some in february.

It is great to see some more traffic on this part of the forum. The campaigns certainly help.
If people are up for it, I will certainly run a Sci-Fi IV. Maybe after the Godzilla campaign or slightly overlapping.

Great Entries to all. Very nice work.

Jesper, I would definitely be interested in Sci-Fi IV, since I had to bail on Sci-Fi II. We moved house and I finally have opportunity for a proper modelling space, which I'm currently organizing. I would love to resurrect my abandoned snowspeeder project.

Hi Zon

Congrats on the new house and modelling area. I will submit a Sci-Fi IV at some point. Probably wait until the Godzilla campaign is finished or almost finished - maybe second half of 2018.

As usual unfinished builds from Sci-Fi I/II/III will be allowed in Sci-Fi IV no matter how the build has progressed.

I have submitted a proposal for Sci-Fi IV. It is to start 1st july 2018.

This way we finish the campaign this year and there is only a minimal overlap with the Godzilla campaign.

Mike, i Think the camouflage looks good. Would be an effective camouflage on a spinning soucer.

Looking forward to see it finished

That sounds great, Jesper, I've been so sick the last month I haven't got anything done on the sub. Hopefully by SciFi IV I'll be somewhat mobile...

Thanks a lot for the extension. My first trek into resign kits proved that they are much more time consuming so I switched over to an AMT Round 2 kit that I know I can get done in January. I am going to make this a Romulan as it was in the non-remastered TOS (I couldn't find a bird decal for the bottom in this scale that I was happy with).

Here is my starting pic from a few weeks ago.


Assembling the main hull left quite a seem across the top of the main hull so I threw some putty into it to try to smooth it out.




I just painted it a few hours ago so we'll see tomorrow how smooth I got the seem.

I got this one finished, with a few days to spare even. The putty to smooth out the seem on the top of the main hull turned out quite nice. I painted a few spots in a darker gray for some subtle contrast, hopefully not too subtle. All in all, it looks okay next to my Romulan BoP.

Dear All

Brent, thanks for the reminder.

All, thanks for participating - both the ones that finished and the ones that did not.

Remember any unfinished builds from Sci-FI I, II, III are allowed for entry into Sci-fi IV starting during the Summer.

We were 11 finishers in this campaign. I think that is pretty good. Ribbons have been awarded to all finishers. Let me know if I missed anybody.
