Quote from: kitbasher on April 03, 2019, 02:47:41 PMAlso how about 'swords into ploughshares' (done in the past I think) ot 'ploughshares into swords'? And the latter wouldn't just be a case of impressed civil stuff but civil stuff repurposed into a military role.

You already nominated this on page 1 Mind you in fairness you have since added the ploughshares into swords' I may well combine them in the Poll

Quote from: Weaver on April 05, 2019, 10:48:34 PMThe Earl(ier) Jets GBWe often see What-If scenarios where jet engines are never invented, thus giving an excuse for 'ultimate' prop-jobs to get into service. However, what if it was the other way around, and jets became practical up to ten years earlier? A lot of the delay in getting them into service was down to lack of support and funding, so you might imagine a scenario where governments get solidly behind them in the early 1930s, with the result that jet aircraft enter squadron service just before WWII starts.There are some easy things you could do for this of course, such as Meteor/Vampire Mk.1s in green/brown cammo with black/white undersides, or operational He 280s. However there are also some more conceptual things to think about. The real-life early jets benefitted from experience gained on the brutal learning curve of the early years of WWII. Without that, if they were based on the mixture of right and wrong ideas knocking around in the late 1930s, what might they have looked like? Jet turret fighters? Jet three-seater 'fighter control' aircraft? Also, how many more Yak-15-style converted piston types with a jet in/under the nose would have appeared as first steps? Would the first Spitfire have been literally spitting fire?

Quote from: Weaver on April 06, 2019, 03:18:25 AMThe Three's Company GB.We're always making up fictional countries and writing histories for them, but the history of companies can be just as interesting. The challenge therefore, is to make up a fictional manufacturing company, or radically alter the story of a real one, and then build three models that illustrate that history. It doesn't have to be aircraft and it doesn't have to be military: if you can make up an interesting bus company and find/scratch the models then go for it.
