For when we can discuss eligibility.

Ridge Runners and Moonshiners are basically land bound smugglers.
(Thunder Road, Dukes of Hazzard, Copperhead Road et al).

And speaking of smuggling, here's a fascinating subject: narco-subs: http://www.hisutton.com/Narco%20Subs%20101.html

These things are getting ever more sophisticated. Modelling-wise, you could take a 1/350th submarine kit and scaleorama it to 1/72nd. HMS Trafalgar (the only such thing I have to hand) comes out at 17.3m in 1/72nd or 34.5m in 1/144th, both of which are in the right ballpark. Alternatively, there are various WWII minisubs available in 1/72nd or 1/144th. All of these would need a bit of de-sophisticating, but nothing too hard.

And in case you think it's a new idea: http://www.hisutton.com/Prohibition_Smugglers_Sub.html

Itís where stock car racing came from. The moonshiners used hot rod cars to out run the police and eventually moved to race tracks to race each other.

It's amazing how many crimes can be solved by owning a fast car with welded shut doors
