New regular group project and web site news
« on: August 22, 2007, 12:10 PM »
What kind of group project are we thinking of? Character based? diorama? Lets have some suggestions. I'm all in for starting a new one up.

Right now, I'm in the process of redesigning the UGP web site. I'm going to be moving the previous regular group project pictures there. I'm also starting to setup member galleries. If you would like to have your pictures posted, please shoot me an email.

The main gateway will be ugp.t-j-p.net.  [url]ultimategroupproject.t-j-p.net[\url] will be dedicated to C4's city only. Please send me any work in progress pictures for the C4 project you may have. I'm still designing a project yearbook for C4. I hope to be able to distribute it to everyone someday.

I could probably try to help out with this one. Need any bridges?  ;)

The Jawa droid bazaar idea sounds pretty cool, especially with the new Jawa out. It could probably get some neat custom droid designs as well as some interesting customer ideas.

Right now the idea might be to make a large diorama for Chewie's photonovel series. Still working on the details.

I really like that idea, but it's going to take cracker-jack planning and engineering. Having the front ramp down with a bit of a swap meat going on in front would also be cool (just like in the incredible cross sections book.)

Would customizers be able to submit custom droids and customers for it, or would only the scale model sandcrawler be the project?

If the project were the sandcrawler,  I would need a crew of customizers that I could trust would not flake out. I  know of a few from the UGP that I could depend on. There would have to be some dedication involved and proven leadership skills. Personally, I think we are better off going with a scene for one of Chewie's photonovels.

Creating a piece modularly would be a task in deed Paul, I have faith in you but this just seems too much for any group.
How do we make a sandcrawler when we are all over the country. Ca, IL, CO, etc etc. Thanks but no thanks. If we could do something a bit more manageable I'm in.

That's why I think a sandcrawler is not a good idea unless I can get certain people involved. A scene that Chewie could use in a photonovel is much more manageable since it doesn't take exact messurements and people can put certain types of figures in it.
