Another idea:  A "Face your Fears" GB - basic idea is for you to take on an area that you fear.  It may be doing a vacuform or resin kit or perhaps doing a figure.  Maybe a modeller could do a profile or a profiler do a model or perhaps play with a more detailed level of profiling...I'm sure you get the idea.

I'd go for that.  :)

That's a great idea! Lot's of bright, colorful schemes to offset all the olive drab/gunship grey on my shelves!

Gaaarrrr !!! I would have to do a car, it is really the only area of models I do not dabble in at all.

I'm dabbling in this field ... & wishing I hadn't (even though I'm whiffing them).

Sucking the mojo right out of me but I promised my daughters, so I have to complete them.

How about a display team GB, any era, military or civilian, any aircraft type i.e. the usual fighter and trainer types but why not B-52s, P-3, P-8, etc. even UAVs or A380s.  Maybe even a precision driving display team using brightly coloured tanks?

Starship modeler years back did an "other guys" GB: The unsung heroes, logistics, cargo, refuelers, mine sweepers, trainers, Freighters, Miners, etc. all the parts of the stick that make pointy end a spear. Could be great for air, land, sea, and space, profiles and stories. Very inclusive and broad Overall
