Tony's up for a challenge in 2011 once again so we'd like Modelflying.co.uk members and RCM&E readers to vote for the model they'd like Tony to design in 2011. The winning aircraft will be the free plan design in our Autumn Special Issue.
It's important to bear in mind what's gone before and exclude from your voting the machines Tony has designed already -
That leaves plenty more enticing subjects though if previous voting has been anything to go by so just leave a post below stating your top three choices.
Pretty much anything goes although adoption of the winner will be subject to Tony's confirmation of the practical viabilities - in reality we don't anticipate a problem but then we don't know what the winner will be.Please vote once only, thanks.
A separate chat thread exists alongside this so folks can chat about the voting and subject matter etc. Please leave comments and thoughts there......

I was going to say Beaufighter, Anson and Blenheim but I'm going to be contentious and to complement the Spitfire and Hurricane;
1. FW 190
2. Me 109
3. Me 110
Electric or IC, I fly both.

No ARTF's of any of them I believe (except an expensive huge one of the Sowrdfish) and all lovely aeroplanes.
Yes, I know what you're thinking "Doesn't he move beyond the 1930's". No he doesn't really

A lot of the above types have been modelled before. I'd like to see something thats never been done before while being an inspirational and interesting design.
I don't think any of these have been done before:
1) The new Cirrus SRS, a light sport aircraft. Challenging compound curves could be tackled with mouldings. I'm sure you'll agree it looks just right
2) Recently, Peter Besenyei started flying a new racing aircraft in the Red Bull Air Race - the Corvus Racer. Built in Hungary it arguably looks better than the edge/extra line and would make a great modelling subject.
3) Finally, a personal favourite of mine, the Beech starship. I think this would look epic as a model and I don't think its been done before despite deing around for a while. it is quite complicated, but I'm sure it could be done
