jsmith, that was a cool photo.

Just another idea:

Reichsluftfahrtministerium (RLM)
The Ministry of Aviation (German: Reichsluftfahrtministerium), abbreviated RLM, was a government department during the period of Nazi Germany (1933–45). It is also the original name of the Detlev-Rohwedder-Haus building on the Wilhelmstrasse in central Berlin, Germany, which today houses the German Finance Ministry (Bundesministerium der Finanzen).
The Ministry was in charge of development and production of all aircraft developed, designed and built in Germany during the existence of the Third Reich, overseeing all matters concerning both military and civilian designs — it handled military aviation matters as its top priority, particularly for the Luftwaffe. As was characteristic of government departments in the Nazi era, the Ministry was personality-driven and formal procedures were often ignored in favour of the whims of the Minister, Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring. As a result, early successes in aircraft development progressed only slowly and erratically during World War II.

April 1933 to 8 May 1945, any aircraft produced or in prototype form that was considered by the RLM

If anyone likes an idea that Ive put up and want to run with it. Go ahead and give it your spin.

I just thought of another:

Proposal: Wooden Aircraft of WW II: Campaign

Aluminum was a precious metal in WW II, so wood was to go to material for several aircraft and even certain vehicles. The campaign would focus on any aircraft that wood used in any part of its construction. This opens up the field to many different aircraft. There were some vehicles that had wood used in their construction also, so this would be open to that genre as well.

A list would be too extensive to compile here, and we all know of several wooden a/c.

ADDENDUM:

Just put together some more campaign ideas for all to take and run with and hopefully progress into a future campaign.

What about a short run / less known aircraft ? Something that we have not seen build on this site before ? Or something that you never see on a model show or competition ? The really odd stuff ?

If it took off from or landed on an aircraft carrier it
qualifies.

So that qualifies (16) B-25A models.

I'm talking about your big list of Campaign Ideas.
and you might want to consider mergers and acquisitions Consolidated-Vultee-Convair-General Dynamics, maybe break it off before the Lockheed-Martin buildup.

Mark, I am glad that you started this. It makes the electricity work in the brain and maybe others will take any of the ideas and run with one or more. If you see one that peeks your interest. Fix it up and I will follow/join in.
