    This may seem presumptuous, but I thought as a tribute to his incredible design skills, it might be fun to come up with projects that only Kooklik could do; this, of course, after he finishes Big Boy.

    My vote would be for a large scale model of Bejing's "Forbidden City." It's a fabulous structure that is full of color and detail.

    Here's another: Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, "Seaview" submarine with a detailed interior.

    My credit card is ready and waiting!!!

    It's got to be an aircraft or a surface vessel, Kooklik had a sub, and a train. So I'd like to see something along those lines ^^

    How about the Boeing Sea Launch System including the Assembly and Command Ship, Launch Platform, and the Launch Vehicle. Looks about complicated enough to give Kooklik a slight challenge. :mrgreen:

    Wow thanks alot of sugestions. I have many things want to do in paper model. For myself interest in narrow size with ton of details model (cause my small house). But after Bigboy I intend to release a model for free. I have not decided yet what it be. But I think it should be a popular object for youths. Hope it would help them to generate their inspirations to do bigger things.

    I think in order to be challenging, Kooklik needs something BIGGER. How about the German 80cm K(E) Railway Gun "Gustav" or "Dora"?

    Probably too big for 1:25 scale (the barrel is over a 12" at 1:144 scale), perhaps 1:48?:mrgreen:

    How about something like the Nautilus or Captain Nemo's car from the movie League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? With your skills, either should be almost a vacation compared to the herculean tasks you've undertaken so far.

    Now, there's an idea worthy of Kooklik! It's a beast of an airplane and in 1:33 it would have a life of its own!

    But, now, he is talking about something as a freebie to stimulate interest among younger modelers. I teach middle school science, 13 year old boys and girls and, for the life of me, I have no idea what interests them outside of sex, drugs, and rap (not rock 'n roll anymore).

    So, what might be of interest to younger, would-be modelers? I am thinking something from a recent movie that has world-wide appeal: Bond 007, Indiana Jones, Marvel Comics-- how's about a detailed Iron Man? Halo is being turned into a movie; something mecha from that genre would be interesting.

    What about one of the Ring Wraiths and its "dragon" from LOTR?

    Oooh! What was the name of the Wolf battering ram in the last movie? That would be Waaaaay cool!
