I'll let you decide

I'm hoping to start another build thread this weekend. The problem is, I have 5 vehicles to choose from and I can't decide. The last time, I let Mrs Kenbo choose and she chose the bucket truck. I had a great time with that build and now, provided I get some other small projects done this week, I'll let you guys decide which one you want to see done.
I will provide the choices in the form of a poll. You can post a comment if you wish, but please click in the poll above this post for your favourite choice. Whichever vehicle gets the most votes by Friday night, will be the one that I build. Thanks for participating guys.

I voted for the Tank but the Bi-plane would be cool too.

Before I vote, what make of semi? You've already done a Mack. So IMO (as an ex-trucker) it should be either a Kenworth or a Peterbuilt. Maybe a Freightliner.

Here's a real challenge for you. Make it pulling a gasoline tanker. The Oval kind, not the old style round ones.

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

I'm not sure what kind of semi it is Johnny. I'm not really up on my semi's but I like the way you think with the gasoline tanker. Definitely something for me to think about a research when I do finally make the truck.
Thanks for your votes guys. Keep em coming. The decision isn't final until Friday when I will check to poll results and let you know which build I will be starting. I eventually want to make them all, so it doesn't matter to me which one I make now. So let me know which one you want to see.

There isn't one. I did however allow multiple choices in this poll in case people couldn't decide. It's only Tuesday, and the final decision hasn't been made yet. So far, the tank is in the lead but depending on how many more people vote in the poll, that could change. The bi-plane isn't that far behind. Anyone else wanna chime in?

Now if you can make the tank where the treads actually roll that would be something.

They do roll. At least the Excavator, and the Boom Crane does.

For those who were wondering

So far, the tank is in the lead. For those who were wondering, I'm posting the results thus far. The iphone app for WWT puts the results into a pie chart so I thought I would post it for ya. There's still today and tomorrow to vote for which one you'd like to see, so things could change.

I voted before I knew I could pick 2. My second choice would be the plane.

I looked back at some of your old builds. That's great stuff!

I voted for the Fokker, but it made me think back to an old British joke.

The British pilot was sitting in the pub, sharing his experience up in the air and he said:

"There was a Fokker at 40 degrees NE and another Fokker at 48 degrees NE, they did not see me coming, so I shot them both down."

Blonde lady asked:

"Wow, what model Fokkers were those?"

Pilot replied:

"Those two Fokkers were both flying Messerschmitt ME 262's!!!"
