#1 finish my Chorus Gull (RCM&E plan) - currently in paint
#2 finish my Chilli Breeze (RCM&E plan) - currently in balsa build
#3 finish my Kestrel autogyro (RCM&E plan)
pending that lot getting off the bench it's onto the Sebino Laser 200 - well the wings anyway as the fuz is in storage, finishing off a gordon whitehead DH Hornet (I think - i was given it as an aiframe).
SHould keep me busy for a bit.

What is that new build Tony?Concorde?!
Finish the Domino, get some winter flying done, get some other planes done.
The whole fleet needs some maintenance, lots of problems need sorting, some parts for engines, running RC planes is just like full size!

I've lots planned.
Getting my long term Jart project finished it top of the list, nearly ready for spraying, then there my even longer term project a big DB sport Spitfire. Its been 5 years now, just glassing as we speak.
I have a couple of builds I'd like to get done. I've already started a thread for a Curare, I want to build a Big Trainer with a commercial angle so that is currently on the drawing board (well CAD) .
I'm also looking at a Capiche 140 kit build (not the artf).
But the best laid plans of mice and men.....

It all depends on what the 2013 mass build decision will be...
Wouldn't mind building a 60 sized retro aerobat - also got plans for a 60 sized Spinks acromaster (I think). Either of those will do plus the Mass Build choice

Build a replacement Maricardo, as mine is so soaked in oil the covering is sliding off, and I have a plan from Outerzone for a Mitsubishi A5M4 Claude. That should let me have some fun at the "Flying only" scale events next year!

1. Finish the Chorus Gull.
Canopy on order. Just the undercart to bend.
2. Finish the "Maxi Jazz"
Undercart on order. Canopy will be from a "pop" bottle.
3. Finish the Farmhand 90.
Wings to build.
Already decided on my next build.
I have a little Cox Baby Bee that needs a home. Although I may go the e£$%^&*c route.

As per Martyn, it depends on the choice for next year's fly-in.
Whatever the result of that I've got enough to see me through the winter:
TopFlite Sea Fury
Galaxy Typhoon funfighter
Blue Angel retro aerobatic jobbie

Start my next build, plan RM417 Cossack I was given one of these 3rd hand, tough as old boots and it needed to be as it was first low winger and I'd definately not recommend it as a first. I was told mine was the original airframe built to prove the plan an ugly looking thing but I was quite attached to it. Got the wood from Slec at the Nats.

I have a Royal / Marutaka Zero to finish. Lots of the building work is done, but there is some finishing off to do before I get to glassing and painting etc.
Also, I picked up a Flair Puppeteer which is built but uncovered at the Nats, so I'd like to get that done. (saving for Solartax)
I've been working on a few of my own designs on CAD, a 46 inch electric warbird that is a little unusual but very pretty, (I will do a build blog whenI get to that... Hoping for funfighters for the mass build! ) and a 1800mm glider with a simple pod and boom construction.
That should keep me busy!

Pretty busy here, but just one task at a time if you don't mind!
1. Finish the BUSA 1/4 scale Nieuport 28
2. Revamp my 67" Waco SRE in order to have a bash at the scale schedule.
3. Decide on and start the next own-design project.
