It seems to me that so many of us have been focusing on the main course for so long, we forgot how good side dishes can be. Several wonderful sides would really make displays pop, such as:

- Taxiway, runway or grass strip "squares"
- Water squares for amphibs
- Carrier flight deck (historic and modern)
- Air show tents & chairs (think Oshkosh fly-in)
- Start carts
- Tool cribs
- Fire bottles (sit between every two birds on the parking apron)
- Engine and fuselage lifts (for changing engines and tires)
- Fuel truck (civilian and military)
- Crash recovery team vehicles
- Ordinance mover
- Wash rack
- Racing pylons
- Gunsight calibration target
- Bell X-1 team radio van
- Hangar maintenance bay
- Carrier launch catapault

FG can also expand into diorama displays, such as:
- NASA Control Center (Mercury/Gemini/Apollo)
- Air traffic control tower (from the INSIDE!)
- Sand dunes for the Wright Flyer

Rob Carleen did a great job thinking of some of these items already with his P-80 Shooting Star. There's quite a bit of these items I've scratch-built already, and it wouldn't be difficult to re-line them.

Show of hands: who thinks this is a great area for FG to pursue for our modeling enjoyment?

I would gladly spend money on an "extras pack" that would give me a handfull of the items listed to cut & paste, GIMP around with, add to, modify, cut out and assemble, etc!

I make stuff.
