What happens with the ideas that were not winners in past years? Can they be re-proposed once more?

Anyway I want to recover the Anachronisc GB idea: Old battles with modern weapons or old weapons in modern battles.

I do believe they can!!

Armor GB has been submitted multiple times.

How about "Heavy Metal" without any explanation, could a musical inspiration to anything, heavy armour, armoured knights, mechs, battleships, prime movers, strategic bombers, transports, or even airliners.

The heavy stuff within the type of thing they are - right ?

Maybe, but also just generally big and tough.  A muscle car rather then a sports car, a multi engine bomber or transport rather than a Learjet, a super tanker, panmax containership, or super liner as opposed to a luxury yacht.

Well explained^

So anything that is kind of big and beefy and relies on raw power and brute force over finesse?

Drop tank racers

How about just drop tank anythings? The only rule is that the majority of the model has to consist of a re-purposed drop tank.

Since the new Star Wars movie is out at Christmas, how about a Star Wars vehicles GB for early in the year? Theme is anything to fit into the franchise: it could be a completely new vehicle in the right style, an alternative to one of the "canon" vehicles or even an improvement/upgrade on one of them based on a Star Wars kit.

Maybe something like "lets go nuclear"? So everything what uses nuclear propulsion/power systems, for example nuclear powered home equipment, cars up to military vessels or even space crafts
