Para-national GB:  Doesn't matter what you do... create anything... but it has to be affiliated with a nation that doesn't currently exist. Could be historic like the Roman Empire or a completely made up nation.

...2020. Discovery of Antarctica 200th Anniversary.  Build something that could have operated in, near or over Antarctica.  Sea, air, land, ice.  Any time frame from 1820 to 2020.  Secret Nazi bases allowed, aliens not.     


Why is it always secret Nazi bases?  Why not a secret Japanese base?  Japan is much closer and could be supplied secretly under cover of whaling...

But I digress.


Camper van GB.  Convert anything into a camper van - car, ship, tank, aircraft.  I can already envisage a sky van with a pop-top and an awning...

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

My name is Commander William Riker.  Take me to your women.

Hehehehe, the mind BOGGLES!

Already I'm thinking of my 'melted' A Model Miles Aerovan with a sliding side door and an awning draped over one wing.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

There was a real-life heli-camper conversion for the S-55 promoted in the 1960s(?). Sold seven at most...

Of course you could play mind games with the uneducated: - The Namib Desert Lifeboat Organisation.   A desert  lifeboat service, obviously a joke but...........................

Being geographically literate individuals, you will all be aware that part of the Namib Desert  is the so called "Skeleton Coast"; the deserted and highly treacherous shoreline  that makes up Namibia's Atlantic border

On this principle, I once Googled "Nebraska Lighthouse" just to check that my silly idea really was silly, and I discovered that there actually are five...  :rolleyes:

Tell me about it! I went there for a day trip once (yes, really...) and it sure is a desolate place. Mind you, I didn't know where I'd been until a while later..........
