Well I'm in on this one, I'm going to see if I can get this finished in the allotted time   :P  it's an Airbus A310/A400 hybrid for rough field airfields.  Got thinking about it when I went up north and went into a private gravel airstrip in a 737.  In 1/72 scale --

Would a Willy's Jeep in non-military use qualify?

Of course, any military vehicle, real or fictional, in civil use qualifies.

Hell, howabout an Aliens APC as an airport tractor? ;)

Ok a bit out of my comfort zone.. non Military Bah !

I am leaning towards a Space Exploration vehicle, say Mars or one of the Moons of Jupiter.

Hopefully that is non military enough. ;D

I have to do some non-modelling stuff in the near future, so it depends on start/finish times etc.

What I most want to do is a Skyvan on skis in British Antarctic Survey markings, with a hybrid passenger/cargo interior. Got the kit, got the markings, got the skis (Revellobox Twotter).

Other things?

Oxfam Rotodyne (I got the Revell kit from Oxfam at a cheap price so I've always said I'll do it in their colours).

B-17 Flying Fortean (modified for investigating anomalous phenomena)

1950's Rocket ship passenger liner made from a scaleorama'd V-2

The Old Tomcat (F-14 warbird sponsored by my local brewery)

Loads of other stuff..........

A couple days ago I started working on a 1/72 P-51D.  My (very flexible) plan was to "back-date" it to a mid thirties fighter.  Got the major construction done (with no thought toward armament yet) and decided (inexplicably) to paint it gloss blue.  Now it is a sport/aerobatic aircraft.  Even though I already started, can it be in the GB?

Me as a spectator can't see why not, either.  ;D

Those are cool. I wonder if they'll have "Humveeneys" or MRAPneys" in the future.

My childhood fascination with RVs made me think of a Jeep/Jeepney-based RV......

And I'm by no mean the first one to think of that......  Maybe tactical trucks and Humvees, too.
