SCM Groupbuild - Matchbox Nostalgia

Back to the roots with plastic that comes in different colours

Event details

Name:SCM Groupbuild - Matchbox Nostalgia
Town:Worldwide BE
About:Guidelines:

Build a Matchbox kit. Original or Revell rebox is ok. But it's more fun with those multi coloured sprues in the original boxings.

Not allowed: Non original kits in Matchbox livery. Revell made some misshandling of the brand durin' their ten year ownership of Matchbox by putting really old Revell, Frog and Otaki kits in Matchbox boxes.

Scratchbuilding, after market goodies is allowed as well as building the kits OOtB, even building the kits according to the old Matchbox slogan "No Painting Necessary" is ok if one feels that's the way to go.

If there's any questions on the origin of a kit it's easy to check it up over at this page. matchboxkits.org/

Most important is to have fun in the process.

A little Matchbox history (in German) plastik-modellbau.org/blog/l..es-modellbaus-matchbox/2012/

If you've trouble sourcing a Matchbox kit check at E-Bay or for example these two companies specialised at selling second hand kits.
kitsforcash.com/
kingkit.co.uk/

Let us build as many Matchbox kits as possible in the space of two months.

Have fun!

John Soule These kits are some of the oldest surviving ones I have. They were great for honing modeling skill. They are lacking in so many ways, especially by today's standards, that one feels no pressure to bring it up to "contest standards" or worry about "advanced modeler's syndrome". Just fun hobby time as it should be! I'm glad to have found this site while this is going on. I love looking at all of these classic kits!

Phil Marchese I have a B-17 conversion in the works using the M-box G. It is my favorite Fortress kit. Mine will be a block 15 Vega F series, TINKER TOY of the 381BG. It was among the last half dozen original combat complement to survive into December 1943.
18. November 2013 at 20:50:02
Phil Marchese If you scroll through My Albums you will find many Matchbox build and in process project. Included are major reconstructions (XF14C-2); major conversions (XC-87B); moderate conversions (P-40L & M); minor conversion and corrections (Beaufighters); and OOB.

18. November 2013 at 18:43:26
Gordon Sørensen I am going to build the Airfix Helldiver for a group build on the ATF forum. Would be interesting to compare the kits.....
18. November 2013 at 23:49:16
Bruce Leyland-Jones Aaaah...the Airfix Helldiver is a different sort of Helldiver from the one I'm going to be building, which is the biplane Helldiver.
I've already built the Matchbox version of the Airfix kit;

Bruce Scott Just got done reading some fairly disparaging remarks about this kit on some other forums ( worst kit ever, blah blah, yadda yadda ). That just makes me more determined. I love a challenge.

Burkhard D I should use the opportunity to finish my Ju188 at least (or at last) ;)

Duncan Cook Go for it! :)
1. December 2013 at 11:29:38
Burkhard D May be I toss in the A-10A #1 prototype as well :)
3. December 2013 at 11:14:59
Duncan Cook Why not? :)
3. December 2013 at 12:15:17
Holger Kranich Yeah, cool Burkhard!
3. December 2013 at 12:45:14
Marc Schimmler It' going to be interesting ...
14. December 2013 at 11:15:30
Burkhard D After a peek into the box I am not so convinced. I had built the A-10 in the 1970s, but in my memory it wasn't *that* bad :D
I think I'll keep the prototype decals for a better A-10A kit.
Plenty of alternatives in my stash, like Tomcat, Viggen, Twin Otter, Norseman, Prowler, Dauphin... :)
14. December 2013 at 11:42:13
Urban Gardini Yeah! The biggest problem with this build is to pick a kit to start with...
14. December 2013 at 11:56:38
Duncan Cook Maybe you should flip a coin. :)
14. December 2013 at 13:50:34
Burkhard D ...or roll the dice :)

I tend towards the F-14, can be built as a prototype bcs it has the early straight edge top covers for the swing wing.
14. December 2013 at 14:30:48
Gordon Sørensen Nice to have choices! I keep hoping Revell will re-release the Twin Otter. They go for stupid money on e-bay...
14. December 2013 at 17:00:01
Urban Gardini Ouch! Stupid money on Kingkit as well...

Mitchell Hart-Lincoln Entering a little bit later than most so I'll be beavering away over the Xmas break - what to do? More than likely a couple from the pure Matchbox stash (rather than Revell repops):

#1 Gloster Meteor NF11 from 87 Sqn RAF using ModelDecal 93 for the markings (to sit alongside an Airfix Gloster Gladiator that I've just finished (again ModelDecal 87 Sqn).

#2 SA365N Dauphin 2 in London Air Ambulance markings - undecided whether to go with the original Yellow "Express Newspapers" or the later Red "Virgin" colour scheme!

I'm fancying a bit of updating but that'll depend on time available and whether SWMBO starts to fling toys out when I disappear to the Hobby Room (Man Cave) over the festive season.... Def the G-HEMS interior set for the Dauphin and maybe an engine and some other bits for the Meteor....

Blue Skies (and a Happy Christmas/Happy Holidays to all).......
11. December 2013 at 14:52:45
Urban Gardini Not late at all mate as it's not started yet 'n welcome to the build.
11. December 2013 at 15:13:19
Mitchell Hart-Lincoln Well there you go! I thought it started at the beginning of Dec :)
This will make a welcome change for me - and might even get me out of the dreaded "modelling block".... at the moment I seem to be able to start lots but never fin......
11. December 2013 at 15:19:50
Stefan Schneider I feel quite the same Mitchell ;)
11. December 2013 at 15:28:21
Urban Gardini No, January 1st to February 28th will give plenty of time to finish at least one Matchbox kit...
11. December 2013 at 15:31:44
Mitchell Hart-Lincoln Yup, it will :) I've still got other stalled kits to be getting on with! Waiting to get my hand on the new Airfix "EE Frightning" though and I've got the Airfix Javelin on my Santa list and I've been exceptionally good this year ;)

berni I've had a few original matchbox kits and reboxes. But, i can't me decide. ;)
2. December 2013 at 16:30:25
Robert Espenschied the Victor is a good choice, but not an easy built...
go for it...
2. December 2013 at 17:04:41
berni thats i also want to say. another proposal? :)
4. December 2013 at 16:12:11
Burkhard D You have a Matchbox Canberra in your stash. I've built it long ago, quite simple, should be a quick affair - if you can resist 'improving' the very basic detail :)
4. December 2013 at 16:56:07
berni hello here is my choice: :)
Canberra PR.9 (Revell 04281, 1:72)

CraigH I'll be building the 1/72 P47D Thunderbolt. Most likely in the 373rd Fighter Group markings as shown on the box.
28. November 2013 at 05:29:20
Stefan Schneider Cool, more and more participants with a diversity of submissions.
28. November 2013 at 07:30:51
Urban Gardini This could indeed turn epic...
28. November 2013 at 08:01:27
Stefan Schneider But the time frame is still displayed incorrectly isnt it?
28. November 2013 at 08:22:21
Urban Gardini Yes! It's two months and that is clear if you try to edit it.
28. November 2013 at 08:25:08
28. November 2013 at 08:26:11
CraigH Hey - as I'm new here, what are the expectations ? - picture of the finished kit obviously, try to take a few while building - anything else ?
28. November 2013 at 14:10:05
Urban Gardini Just make a picture album that you attach to the groupbuild n' build. Give us a start photo of the unbuilt sprues n' then take as many photos as possible durin' the build. You do know that it's impossible to give us too many photos, n' above all else have fun!
28. November 2013 at 14:19:26
CraigH Will do - thanks !
28. November 2013 at 14:31:41
Stefan Schneider The picture album will be automatically attached to the Group Build as soon as you name the picture album "SCM Groupbuild - Matchbox Nostalgia".

Vieleicht besorge ich mir sogar eine Matchbox Fury, immerhin wollte ich ja eine zu einer Nimrod umbauen.
19. November 2013 at 20:27:27
Daniel Ein paar Matchboxmodelle habe ich auch noch im stash, wenn du etwas davon bauen willst darfst du gerne fragen, ob ich die verhökern will. ;)

Stefan Schneider You can change the details of the event by clicking on its link and then use the "Edit Event" button. There you can also change the dates. Maybe you should also write down some of the "rules and restrictions" in the "Intro" part of the details.
1. November 2013 at 08:33:47
scalemates Please also add an event logo

Stefan Schneider @Tim: Indeed the start and end date of the event are displayed incorrectly in the news feed.

Urban Gardini Yes, the date doesn't show correctly. Event Logo, if you by that mean the thumbnail it's been fixed by one of the mates. Gonna write down the guidelines in the intro.
1. November 2013 at 10:42:30
Stefan Schneider I included the thumbnail. If you want to have a better one feel free to change it ;)
