    mmm.. They all have appeal but its SF for me.. although the copyright issue shot a few of my projects in the foot straight away. However it may well work in your favour Chris.. stuff that isn't easily available else where etc..

    cjwalas ~ your suggestions are Excellent! the pulp stuff is superb. ~ Wonder ~ Fantastic ~ Dynamic SF ~ Air wonder stories, even a small diorama of Frank R Paul's city would be an interesting build... yep enough subject matter to choke a dinosaur... HOoo.. shiny!

    Definately SF. Followed by moderm armor. Hotrods and musclecars 3rd.
    And as a crossover gripe from plastech SF modeling:There's way too much Nascar stuff out there. I think the ratio of Nascar to SF plastic kits has to be at least 80:1. Thats why I work mainly with card now.

    Excellent idea, StevO. Mix and match would be cool. This would be fun with the small foreign cars as well (Honda, Subaru, Toyota, BMW). Can't wait to "Tune my Card"!

    I'm sorry but I have no idea of the design process so I'm clueless about the possibility of this, but I'd love to see some concept cars like the new Intercontinetal....Thanks!

    I'm fairly certain HMS Eskimo is to be found in the downloads section.

    I've refrained from voting, as my tastes are many & varied, but, in no particular order, I'd like to see : Sci-fi, Tanks, Ships, Experimental Aircraft, Cartoon subjects, Cars(especially fantasy ones e.g. Pink Panthers Car), Busts, Life Size Weapons, Buildings and, finally Stuff from Literature(e.g. Sci fi novels, Graphic novels, Terry Pratchett and so on) Thats my tu'porth, thanks for listening

    Airships: There are a few very good models out there both commercial and free, but they only represent a fraction of the fascinating craft which were built. Could be a lot of fun if not too large.

    Architecture: I'm thinking New World here, where the variety of truly wonderful subjects has barely been scratched. How about an Art Deco bus station series? Filling stations from say, 1935-1960? Or some wacky "Googie school" subjects?

    I'd love to see a model of a canal packet such as ran the Erie Canal and the canals of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana in the mid 19th. century. There were several types: packet, freight barge, even a few steam powered boats. Someone could do a whole series.

    Great Lakes "whaleback" freighter: Truly a striking type of craft (and I do not refer to their reputation for erratic steering) seen nowhere else; possible world market for a good model.

    I would really like to see some scenery for Military and Sci-Fi models.

    Buildings, Walls, floors etc at various scales. Especially to display my R2D2 models :)

    Bit different from what I usually build, but I voted for Animals. I would like a 3 foot detailed tiger. Or a decent set of big cats, having a body length of 1 foot. I konw there are big cat models out there, but they arn't very good.

    Victorian SF, WWII bomber interiors, Mallett and other articulated RR engines (where is papertrain?), any of the World's Ugliest Aircraft collection (got a link around here somewhere, let's see now......aha! World's Ugliest Aircraft Collection ),etc., ad nauseum. I voted for SF intending for it to mean Victorian SF.

    How about this for another idea...

    The 7 Wonders of the world.

    * Colossus of Rhodes
    * Great Pyramid of Giza
    * Hanging Gardens of Babylon
    * Lighthouse of Alexandria
    * Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus
    * Statue of Zeus at Olympia
    * Temple of Artemis at Ephesus

    I think those would make for a great series of models. Many of these are open for interpretation except for the Great Pyramids to some degree.

    I'm suffering a bout of insomnia because of this thread - the list kept growing.

    Anyway mostly Brit subjects:

    Modern aircraft: Hawk, Javelin, Scimitar, Hunter, AV-8B, Nimrod, Gannet, Scimitar, F-4K/M, Sea Vixen, Sea Hawk, Attacker, Buccaneer <ehem>, Alpha Jet, Orion, Atlantique, KC-10, Tristar, VC-10, C-17, Victor, Valiant, Swift, M52(easy) , DH108, Sperrin, SR177, Lynx

    RN Warships Type 21,22,23 (Barry!!!), 42,45, County, Hermes, Ocean, Ark Royal, Victorious, Tiger, Fearless, Leanders (everywhere), Vanguard, Trafalgar, Warspite, V&W Escorts

    Pre-War A/C Fury, Demon, Hart, Nimrod, Siskin, Bulldog (challenging). Wellsey, Heyford...

    How about soldiers - British Grenadier 1815, 92 Rifles, French Imperial Guard - lots of colourful uniforms in that peiod

    Busts: Lincoln, Washington, Dickens, Shakespeare, Beethoven, Nelson, Charles 1, Elizabeth, Henry VIII- anyone remember 3D model heads that were on cornflake packets in the late 60's?

    Sports Stadia? Lex - how about the Birds Nest?

    UK Castles - Windsor, Canearvon, Richmond, preferably complete rather than ruined - we can do that ourselves. Beverley,York Minster, Salisbury, Canterbury Catherdrals

    A lot of the classic paper models could stand to be re-done using latest technologies.

    How about models you can paint yourselves with markings, templates using Paintshop?

    It is strange that many items of imagination such as Star Trek etc have copyright on their image and yet artefacts that have been produced at much greater expense and ingenuity do not.

    OK I probably won't get any sleep but at least I got this off my chest.

    Good night.
