I'll jump in the deep end of the pond.  1/48  Modelcraft 172 Cessna floatplane.  Since it is pretty much basic, might actually have a chance of completion.

I'd like to join but just put me down for TBD. I may or may not be able to do something.

I have never finished a GB yet Embarrassed, but something is coming in the mail that checks off all the boxes (it's floaty, boaty, and super-weird).  OK, OK, no suspense - it's Takom's "Lun" Ekraonoplan:
