Would there be any interest in a comic book group build? It doesn't have to be limited to armor See this thread on the Haunted Tank

If there's enough interest I will get with Guntruck to see if an official campaign can be done There may be too many campaigns for the year now So it may be just a group build

Let's do it.
Then you can build your red ME-262
I'm digging out my comics now!

As one of the site's biggest (perhaps THE biggest) comic book nerds, I'm definitely interested.

I'm game, I've been meaning to build the faux M1A1 featured in the movie (and comic book adaptation) The Hulk.

I don't have any issues with me in my 18 wheeler Is there a comic book shop in the area where you live? They may have some of the issues you are looking for

Howdy 'Zod!

Glad to see someone {you} taking the reigns on this one. As I said before, I think this is a dandy idea. No matter whether it's a bloody Campaign or a Group Build, I honestly believe you will have your hands full with participants in this thing!

Prefacing my potential participation with the self depricating statement of..."not sure if I can finish this one..." I will continue my valiant efforts of at least attempting to build something for this GB......I suppose if I didn't have the work schedule I am saddled with on a regular basis, and/or I was retired, I could probably promise you more, but alas......

So, that bit of 'guff' off my chest, I will toss an entry of mine on the table to add some cinders to the creative juices out there..........being recently focused on much earlier time frames, I will submit this subject matter....

I present the great HANS VON HAMMER!!

How about Nick Fury and his jeep that flies (you know, the wheels pivot out and have jets in the hubs...)

That'd be a fun conversion, and I have a Tamiya Jeep sitting around gathering dust!
