Right then, Mods, hope this isn’t too contentious.

Prototypes - check
Mock ups - check

What about models of ‘what if’ desktop promotional models of designs/prototypes?  You know, something that could conceivably be presented alongside promotional material at a trade show such as Farnborough or Paris.  Would these be in scope?

Could be.........

They're often models of mockups anyway, so that should work. difficult trying to work out the scale of your model though.............  ;D

Jon?
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! :)

Desktop models are out-of-scope, however the large scale models that appear on trade-show stands,
and often look like a giant desktop without any details, would be OK. It would also be easier to figure
out the scale.

My brother helped build a 1/6th scale Bell 212 for the 1995 Heli-Expo.

I've seen this model up close.
