The ultimate papermodel

I've been building and collecting papermodels a long time, and I just wondered what would be the ultimate papermodel...
It would be fun to gather suggestions and make a poll, or something, so here are a few of my suggestions..
The Alan Rose DC3
The Wrebbit Mercedes
The Prague Castle
The Kooklik Big Boy
The Dr Zarkov F15
The KenLWest XB 70

It would be hard to top the model of the entire walled city of Prague, I think.

Anyone mention the Halinski Fuso? Or am I missing the true spirit of this? :D

Probably need to define 'ultimate' first...in terms of size I thought that GPM's Me-323 Gigant would take some beating; in terms of pushing the edge of the envelope, KenLwest's XB-70 or B-58, or uhu02's Discovery would all have to be in the mix...and then there's the ultimate in candidates for divorce like the 1/100 Arizona...

I think that to choose the Ultimate Paper Model (UPM) we would have to make some considerations:

1) It must exist;
2) It must be a work of weight (a piece de resistence);
3) It must be something that everybody would consider doing at some point, even if one could feel that was not up to the task.

I would suggest to include the 1/430 Sulaco.

I would definitely put the Modelik Scud Launcher model into consideration, IMHO.
