Another fun one from a few years back was the April Fools GB.  Perhaps a longer version of this?

Folks,

Next weekend I will put up a poll regarding the first couple of GBs for 2014.  Please make your suggestions here for now.  Please also revisit the Ideas and Suggestions for GBs/Themed Builds thread to review previously made suggestions.  If you want to re-highlight any of these, then please do so in this thread.

Regards,

Greg

Those are all some great ideas. I would like to offer the idea of spacecraft. This would be anything that is in space. Make your best wiff of a ship or station or whatever you want.  We do need several GB ideas, don't we ?


Are we thinking more RW or anything space including "soft" Sci fi like Star Wars?  ??? I would be up for it of course

I think the WWI/1919 GB is a must, and I would like to see Air/Land/Sea/profiles and stories included for it, and I will gladly moderate it if needed.  :) there are just a myriad of ideas and possibilities to play with.

I am good for the nuclear GB as well. I also want to bring back one of my suggestions from earlier this year, An OOB/Paint scheme GB. Where everything built must be out of box, and the head-turning whiffy goodness comes from a sexy/snazzy paint job  :-*

More background here:

 :)

 Great for profilers as well, and of course civilian schemes would be allowed  (You know, like how my privately owned F-14 would appear  ;) )

Ok, I did not reread all of the GB discussion thread so here is my idea

Radar and Early Warning

Bring out some AEW Whiffers, Radar Picket Ships, Ground Surveillance Radar.
You know.. this kind of thing

I know an ISR GB has been suggested before and I think something along those lines is quite doable as long as we keep it broad enough.  How about this?  We call it "Snoops, Spooks, & Spies" and allow for all ISR type entrants.  That sound neat to anyone?

Cheers,

Logan

Do you think we could merge it with Buzzbomb's idea there? Or is that too far apart? 

Could be a lot of fun to see all the spy stuff whiffers can come up with  :icon_ninja:

My post was a response to buzzbomb's.  I was agreeing with his suggestion, but just saying that we should broaden it to include all ISR assets.

I thought that might be the case!  ;) Worth including Electronic Warfare and ASW in there too? Submarine detectors and SIGINT are big jobs as well.  :)

Those are included in my description.  SIGINT and EW are often referred to as "spooks" in US parlance, at least.

Thanks,

Possible suggestion:  The Commemorative GB.  This would allow for builds/profiles of modern platforms in older ("commemorative" if you will) schemes.  For example, these F-35s in the schemes from WWI, WWII and the '50s/'60s:

I think that's good, but we should also probably allow for the reverse of that anachronism.  If someone wants to do an old aircraft type in a new scheme, you should be able to.

Nay To Grey!

Anything normally painted grey to have some other color(s).

All kind of realms can be done.  Obviously aircraft, but armor, even ships.

 :) Neat idea!

So call it an "Anachronism GB"!  :) Sounds good.

Sorta related: there were three P-51 Mustangs in the What-If 2.0 GB over on ARC. One in a pre-WWII P-26 scheme (not finished, sadly), one in modern Mod Eagle colours (LINK) and a "Thunderbirds" Mustang (LINK). All looked fabulous!

I like the "Snoops, Sensors, Spooks, & Spies" GB idea. Very cool! 8)

Unfortunately, the chances of me being able to build an entry are extremely.
