The 2024 Star Wars Group Build Rules


Unleash the Force: Hobby Link International’s SciFiantasy 2024 Star Wars Group Build

Welcome, builders and Star Wars enthusiasts, to the SciFiantasy 2024 Star Wars Group Build hosted by Hobby Link International (HLI). This annual event has gained immense popularity, and we are excited to bring together a galaxy of talented modelers for an unforgettable Star Wars-themed adventure. Whether you’re a seasoned builder or a newcomer to the force, this is an opportunity to showcase your skills and immerse yourself in the iconic world of Star Wars.

The HLI Star Wars GB For 2024:

1. **New Kits Only:**
Embark on this journey with a clean slate! Participants must enter a brand-new kit. No previously started kits will be allowed in the group build, ensuring a level playing field for all participants.

2. **Defining a Build:**
What makes a build? It can take various forms – a kit, 3D print, or a scratch-built masterpiece. However, assembling or printing out a file alone doesn’t qualify. A genuine build involves hands-on work such as sanding, filling, gluing, painting, and more. Models or 3D prints left untouched will not be accepted.

3. **Star Wars Universe:**
Your build must be Star Wars related or a what-if scenario in Star Wars markings. Whether inspired by TV, movies, comics, or other sources, as long as it’s linked to the Star Wars universe, it’s eligible. Questions about fitting in? Email us at for guidance.

4. **Diverse Options:**
From any scale to any manufacturer, material, scratch build, or 3D print – the possibilities are endless as long as it’s a Star Wars build. Unleash your creativity and bring your favorite Star Wars moments to life.

5. **Showcased on Hobby Link International:**
Each completed Star Wars build will be featured in an article on Hobby Link International’s main site, creating a showcase for the modeling community to enjoy.

6. **Community Engagement:**
HLI Community membership is not mandatory, but we encourage you to join and share your build progress with the community. Connect with fellow builders and share the excitement!

7. **Live YouTube Stream:**
Prepare for a spectacular live YouTube stream where we’ll showcase everyone’s hard work. The date for this thrilling event will be announced as we approach the end of the build. Get ready for an intergalactic display of creativity!

Photo Entries for Articles and the Live Show:

8. **Submission Guidelines:**
To have your Star Wars build featured, adhere to these guidelines:
– Submit 5 to 10 pictures of your build.
– Ensure a clean background for optimal viewing.
– Number order your pictures in a three-digit format.
– Submit pictures to or post them in the HLI Community Annual Group Build Showcase.

9. **File Size Considerations:**
Efficiency matters – reduce the file size of your pictures to 1MB if possible. This helps save space on our servers.

The Most Important Rule of All:

10. **Have Fun and Enjoy Your Build!**
Above all, savor the joy of building in the Star Wars universe. We love witnessing your work, and we hope you revel in every moment of this group build.
