1:285 war game aircraft

in CAD Design held by Jim O'Neil
Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
I am looking for a single master that can be used to create multiple copies in Metal for war gamers and collectors. The period of interest ranges from the mid 1930s through modern jets, usually fighters and smaller bombers/transports I am not a Company but do freelance work with Raiden Miniatures.
I am looking for representations that closely resemble the actual aircraft, although some portions like wings may need to be slightly thicker than they would be in true scale, mostly just for sturdiness.
Don't Wants:
Outsized or unrealistic representations... also don't want very fragile parts like propeller blades of pitot tubes.
Company Logo:
  1. Your Choice, but must work with shapeways

Yes, The Ouragan is the aircraft I'd like to try this with... and I left off a "need" which is a flat spot or "spot face" on the underside at the center of gravity. Features to be concentric on center-line at cg of aircraft, a 4.9 mm dia spot face, .4 mm deep, with1mm internal corner radius and a 2mm hole, 2mm deep – 3 mm if practical ... so there would be a flat spot (for gluing a small magnet) at the back half of the wing (the CG most often) and a hole centered for those who prefer to just use a simple 2 mm post to mount their aircraft. I consider this arrangement proprietary to me. Thanks, Jim

Parametric Product Design
Design a parametric model using SolidWorks for Fabpackage.com. The model can be of any product you'd like, provided it meets the following: 1. It is a new product that does not already exist on our site. 2. It is a product that is free to sell on the open market (i.e. is it not patented) 3. It is modeled parametrically and is able to changed using input parameters. (reference fabpackage.com for examples) Modeling Rules: The model must be driven using dimensions as the input parameters. Sketch dimensions, feature dimensions, or reference geometry dimensions are all acceptable. Configurations are now allowed. Each part and assembly must have a unique filename.
