    Isn't the anti-shipping already covered with heavy-hitters Group Build? As for new suggestions - how about aircraft in foreign service perhaps. Some aircraft, like Bf 109 for example, saw extensive use by other nations...

    Then again there are a few more to do in Slovakian markings - Bf 109E, Stuka, He 111, Fw 189, He 111, SM.84... just to name the few and not counting planes build in Czechoslovakia.

    Or WW I. All those biplanes! :twisted:

    We could merge captured aircraft with aircraft in foreign service into one build. :)

    I like the ideas about Spanish Civil War and WW1 too. Here's another one - planes operating from aircraft carriers.

    I like the idea or aircraft in foreign service the most, or maybe do your one of your home country's current planes?

    ...or

    Group Build one aircraft, one scale, but open to paint schemes of choice. E.g 1/48 Spitfire IX GB or 1/72 B24 GB, etc.
