So, we have a Space GB, an ISR GB, an Unarmed GB, an SAR GB, and a Trainer GB proposal.  Bunch of pacifists.  ;)
We'll have to make up for it in 2015.  :D

Maybe we don't have to wait that long ... I mean, SAR can be dangerous; an air force can't train without weapons; if ALIENS taught us anything it taught us to go in peace but be armed for bear; and 'alone unarmed and unafriad' (sorry RF101ers) is passe. Anyone for a nuclear armed, SCRAMjet powered Pilatus RF9C in RAAF colours?  >:D

I have seen a Scalorama GB proposal. Why it is not here?
... Besides, such a GB would be difficult from the perspective of profiles ...

Honestly, I do not see difference with any other subject. :D

WW1
Let's Go Nuclear
Snoops, Sensors, Spooks & Spies, etc.
Books/Movies (& I'm kinda hoping that includes Games)

I also tried to vote for "Disbanded Nations" but that took me over the 4-choice limit.

Cool suggestions

WWI - It'll be an easy hit to make the Meng Char 2C into a combat ready monster for the 1919 offensive

Space - I appear to have some sort of Martian hover tank lurking in my stash  8)

April's fool - I already have a build planned up that would fit in nicely with this; M4A3E2 HVSS (105 mm) slap some 3 AD markings on it and claim it as part of the Zebra mission from April 1945. who would ever know...  ;D

Punked - hmmm, two minds on this one TBH, I have a half finished steampunk build and this would be a good inspiration to actually finish the thing, but if I have to start something new? Sheesh, that'll be tough as I'm running out of space on the bench as it is  :-\

Vote submitted.

Space - nothing on hand, but I do have some ideas bouncing around my brain housing group...

Cross Dressing Schemes - maybe this will push me to actually make either my HMX-1 "Marine One" V-22, or my Canadian SAR V-22, or my USCG V-22, or...

Snoops, Sensors, Spooks & Spies - I've got that 1/72 SR-75 waiting to be scaled up to the One TRUE ScaleTM and detailed as a strategic recon bird

Disaster/Disaster Recovery - see above mention of Canadian SAR V-22 and USCG V-22 and add a Merlin in that gorgeous Canadian yellow scheme to the mix as possible projects.

Huh!  ??? Why would you need to re-scale it, then? It's already in the One True ScaleTM - 1/72. Look for your own moniker for your oversized kits, would you.  8)
Or else!  C:-)

You have your heretical One True ScaleTM and I have the One TRUE ScaleTM. They are two entirely different things.  Besides, One Scale to Rule Them All takes too long to type.

Holy Scale Wars? 

Reminds me of this scene from the Life of Brian:
Monty Python - Life of Brian - PFJ Union meeting






Peoples Front of Judea (PFJ).  Not to be confused with the Judean Peoples Front (JPF) or those splitters of the Judean Popular People's Front (JPPF)

Better to watch the full scene:

"wolfs nipples" / "peoples front of judea" - ;o) - life of brian


What ever happened to the Popular Front... ;D. Possibly my all time favourite Monty Python scene.

That would be great! I second the amended proposal  :)

You have to admit, a "Scale Jihad" GB would have some pretty crazy and creative stuff along with some satirical flair that could have Alvis stopping by...

Punked GB (includes Steam Punk, Diesel etc..)
There's all sorts of "punks" around nowadays.
"Cyberpunk" could take us to all sorts of things that are not here quite yet. Virtual or physical - but space doesn't seem to be a prominent part of the genre.
"Teslapunk" ... I'm not quite sure about this one. Sounds electric.
I recall an airplane drawing(?) that people wanted to call dieselpunk but I thought it looked too modern for that - and proposed "Kerosenepunk"

I'm sure there's more.

Well, don't forget you can change your vote if need be.

Re the "Scale Jihad" GB (though I prefer the "Holy Scale Wars" name since it might be less inflammatory), maybe later in the year.  I would be curious to see how it could be run though.
