Not sure if this qualifies in it's original form since it's a civilian "passenger" vehicle, but you could easily adapt it to freight or military use...

It carries cars as well as passengers therefore it's allowed.
Hmmmmm, I sense a loophole.

As I said at the time 'A cracking aeroplane, and it's got to be dead easy to scratchbuild, after all it's a box with wings!'

I might just do that too.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

You could re-arrange a Skyvan or Do.28 to get something like a bigger version.

I think other combi aircraft might squeeze into that loophole as well.

I had this one on my maybe sometime  backstory list, but I will happily defer to you as the  senior Whiffmeister present if you already have this one in your sights!!

Yep, 'non-pure' means are covered:

Quotehowever in a civilian context, pure passenger-carrying means of transport are NOT within the GB's scope.

No, 'fraid not.  The cars belong to the passengers, and are therefore glorified 'carry on' items.

At least its not as bad as either the Army's UCP or the Air Force's ABU tiger stripe.

I haven't really, but back when it was featured it seemed an 'obvious' build, even though it's not actually Whiff.

Unless it had longer wings and/or fuselage of course.....................  ;)
