What should I design next?

As many of you know, I like making large scale scifi models. You've seen the Narcissus, HMS Fearless, Epstein Yacht, and others. But I'm having creator's block and can't figure out what to do next. My current project will wrap up within a few weeks and then I want to start designing something new again. But what would people enjoy building once I'm done designing it?

My requirements
  • I find it interesting
  • large scale - I love ships more than 2ft long.
  • there isn't a good example done already - no point in making something that someone has already done a good job on
  • not a nightmare to construct the textures/materials for the parts
  • not a multiyear project

This is my idea list from the past few years. What else should be on it and what would you like? (Though I reserve the right to choose something different if I find it more interesting.)

The Orville
Fairey Rotodyne

I vote The Orville! Love that show. Being a Star Trek fan, the
parodies are simply genius.

The Orville gets my vote, too. Saves me from having to make the attempt.
