Select the most rubbish kit in your stash, one that probably has no other chance of seeing a workbench, and build it however you wish - and have fun doing it along with others likewise occupied.

This GB started from a thread here.

The GB runs from 27 Dec through 31 Jan and your GBL is DazDaMan who will fill in any other info.

Thanks, JRtaz!

Yes, like everything I seem to do these days, this comes from a silly idea I had which I thought might at least be entertaining, if nothing else!

Build your worst kit from your stash - either OOB or go to town on it - and have fun (I hope!).

I will be joining in with these two stunners.....

OK, Daren, but to be consistent will your Krap Kits be modeled as they appeared in a Krap Movie :)

Will be taking part with this marvel of model-making:

If I survive it, there may be more. I have so many kits eligible for this GB it's frightening.

Now, if I'd thought a bit better about it, I would have done them from this one....

I think you will find that kit is soooooo bad that it almost doesn’t fit the criteria as being called a model kit :ha: :ha: :ha: even the wings can’t be fitted the right way up :shock:

Noooooo, that´s torture!
I used to have one of those, too, and I binned evrything, except for the exhausts, which I had to plie out of that thick, stubborn plastic of the fuselage halves.
I can´t imagine a kit being any worse than this one :cry:
Wonder if the 4-blade prop in your kit has only 3 full-length blades, like in mine?

I will probably pitch in on this GB with a Revell 1/96 HMS Beagle sailing ship kit. Why is this a krap kit? Here is what poster JTilley had to say in 2010 in a reply post on FineScaleModeller forum:

Unfortunately this kit is just a reissue of one of the more notorious marketing scams in the world of modeling.

It is in fact a modified reissue of one of Revell's first sailing ship kits, H.M.S. Bounty. The Bounty kit was initially released in 1956; the first "Beagle" incarnation followed in 1961. (The dates are from Dr. Thomas Graham's book, Remembering Revell Model Kits.) The real Bounty resembled the real Beagle only in that each of them had a hull, several decks, and three masts. In no way does Revell's "Beagle" kit constitute a scale model of Darwin's ship - or anything else.


Sound pretty krappy to me on those grounds!

Cheers
Al.

There is a limit.
And this is way passed the limit.

I sign up with an Airfix old tool A-4 Skyhawk, which is missing its elevators.
I have this kit twice, so I´ll use the other kit´s elevators as a template to make new ones from plasticard.
They are two triangles, with an engraving for the elevator rudder, so they will not be so difficult to make ;-)
