Welcome to the Jurassic Plastic Group Build!

 

This Group Build is a tribute to former LSP staff member Dan Lo Russo, who passed away earlier this year. Not only was Dan a terrific modeller, but also a well-known and respected dinosaur sculptor.

 

So, in honour of Dan's dinosaur affiliations, Jurassic Plastic will focus on LSP kits released prior to 1984 (subject to negotiation for edge cases). There are no other restrictions, other than our standard 25% rule, which requires all entries to be less than 25% completed at the date of entry. This means anything from straight OOB, to scratch-built conversions, are all fair game.

 

Jurassic Plastic will run from 1 November 2016 to 30 April 2017.

 

Have fun!

 

Kev

Straight up my alley it seems, as old kits are my main stash! :)

I'll see what I find.

LOL..had to read this twice. I was thinking dinosaur group build on LSP? How odd...

 

Hey can I double-dip my build with my entry in the "Between the Wars" build?

 

:)

Hi Kev,

 

    I saw the questions of the Tomy Japanese Fighters if they qualify?

I have the Swallow George that has a Copyright Date of 1988.

Since Tomy came first, I think they are older than 1984.

IMHO

This is going to be a great GB. I've really been looking forward to this one, great choice Gents, and a fitting tribute.

Kevin,

 

I would like, with your approval of course, to move my Monogram F3F WIP to the GB. I've only done the instrument panel at this point. The build is linked in my sig, below.

 

Thank you,

 

John

I don't have dates for those kits, Jack, but I'm pretty sure you're right. I think they all came out in the late '70s.

Is this OK Kevin? Released in 1983, but my boxing is 1986 with other parts?

Actually, cancel that. Found a kit I have from 1957... Will do a thread tonight. ;)

I think Hasegawa's 1/32 Hellcat qualifies, right? It's HUGE!

Yep, the Hellcat qualifies! As does the P-26, ironically (apart from being a tad more than 25% complete, and entered into another GB!).
