Opposites group build.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

Has there ever been an "Opposites " group build? 

I have an idea for a group build in which participants may choose any subject in a large scale. This group build would be open to any subject and nationality. No era or mechanism is denied.

For example, one may wish to build a BoB Spitfire Mk.I in the yellow nosed guise of a Bf 109E,   an F-15 in a Soviet MiG 23 scheme. Tanks,  cars, aeroplanes, ships... All is included.

Has this ever been done? Would it be of interest?

It could be rebellious, there is so much time in building models, but introducing a "what if factor" could be very divisive, if not fun.
But it does unleash a set of historical outcomes to justify why did they put a Bf 109E yellow nose on that Spitfire.

I think actual history, even though we think we know it, or that, we want to twist it in a way this thread suggests.
it is not, or may not become as odd, or unbelievable as what actually has occurred for some.

I do have some of my own alternative tales, actually they are real histories for me, but maybe at a later time.
They involve 1940's RAF Spitfires at Biggen Hill but with some sad twists, D-Day landings all worthy of any "opposites"
or "sliding doors" tales. There is a lot of US wartime lend lease supply materials, Canadian Spitfire Aces and later Cold War CGHQ
connections, But maybe I'm ranting and off topic.

As I commented, unleashing an  "Opposites", well, a "what if group" could be like blogs, such as:
https://www.secretprojects.co.uk where there are sections like "Theoretical and Speculative Projects"
and "Alternative History and Future Speculation" - It could get out of hand, ie" has anyone built
a 1:32 scale Barnes Wallis (Swallow) SST ?https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/barnes-wallis-swallow-sst.6160/
