Can I make a suggestion?  How about a Blue Streak MRBM in 1/72 and 1/144 scale?  It is something that is sadly lacking amongst the Rocket community of modellers.

I keep thinking of an A-10 in US Forrest Service markings rolling in on a wildfire with TER's full of those fire-fighting bombs.  It would make an interesting whif.

Suggest away, by all means!

I've actually had my eye on the Blue Streak (and derivatives) for awhile, now, but I've just had the worst luck trying to find any decent diagrams or blueprints to work off of so I could make a satisfactory job of it.

I picked up a beautiful 3D printed Blue Streak from a seller on EBay, pretty good value too (the seller also does Thor and Bloodhound 2 in a variety of scales)

How about a Japanese ASM-3 anti-ship missile in both 1/72 and 1/48?  It's not operational yet, but that makes it perfect for whiffing loadouts.

Anime appears to be having an effect on real-world projects in Japan. ;)

Is there a word for something being a documentary for a subject that's not come to pass yet?  ;D

IMDb: Idiocracy (25 January 2007 (Germany))

Private Joe Bauers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes five centuries in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive.
