I do ship models as well as planes and over on sites like steelnavy we have a fun poll were everyone can say which model or models they would like to see made. I thought we could have some fun here and say what planes we would like to see in 1/72 and 1/48 (I'm guessing they are the most popular scales!). The models can be either never done before or a new tooling of a kit that's been round for years. Hopefully someone fron any of the model company's may read it!

I would love nice kits any of the following in 1/72 - apologies if some of these have been doen nicely - i may not have seen them!
Dornier 17Z
Dornier 217 (pref and E or K)
Dassault Ouragan (IAF)
Dassault Mystere IVA (IAF)
Dassault Super Mystere (IAF)
Dassault Mirage IIICJ (IAF)
Sud Aviation Vautour (IAF)
Meteor NF13 (IAF)
Fouga Magister (IAF)
Grumman F7F Tigercat
Grumman F8F Bearcat
Fairey Firefly MkI
Fairey Barracuda
Fairey Albacore
Supermarine Seafire (I believe someone is doing one)
I'm sure theres more but i think that enough to start with!

thanks
Mike

I'd love to see an affordable injection molded Vampire, Venom, and Sea Vixen in 1/72 scale. I'm waiting, Trumpeter; I'm waiting, HobbyBoss; I'm waiting... (“・ω・`)

Hello Michael, I'd like a 78' Higgins PT Boat in 1/35, to go with my 80' Elco. A 1/35 British X-Craft, in plastic, would also be very nice. Of course I would also need a really, really, really good reason why I absolutely had to have them, to sell the idea to my wife. Al

If we're dreaming here, I would love the following:

1/144 scale Sangamon or Cassablanca class escort carrier
1/72 scale LCI, LSM, and a PCS sub chaser and PGM gunboat.
1/35 scale 240 mm howitzer with crew

More realistically (but still a dream, I know)

1/350 scale carriers from above, also CA 25 Salt Lake City, USS Ward, USS Boise, West Virginia
1/72 scale Boeing or Martin flying boat
1/35 scale 90 mm M1A1 or M2 AA gun, 4.2 in. mortar with crew, M1918 155mm howitzer, with crew and 4 ton truck (back to dreaming), updated LVT series, PT 20, 200 and 103 class boats, and will somebody please start making aircraft in 1/35 scale!

Well just to add an Aussie flavour:

1/350 scale plastic models of HMAS Sydney 1 2 & 3 (WW1 cruiser, WW2 modified Leander class cruiser and post-war aircraft carrier/Vietnam era transport - in order)

1/350 DKM Kormoran - to go with Sydney 2

1/35 Marmon Herrington truck used by Aussie artillery to tow 25 lbers in Nth Africa.

1/48 plastic Short Sunderland, H-P Halifax, Short Stirling - although I don't know where they would fit

Reasonably accurate 1/35 M551 Sheridan would be my first pick.

But I agree with Jeremy - 1/35 Super HET in plastic would be great! (Oh, come on Trumpeter! We know you can do it )

And from WW2: accurate M3/M3A1 Stuart and M24 Chaffee - all in 1/35 plastic.

Same again for USS Yorktown (CV5) and Enterprise (CV6) and late war USS Saratoga (CV3)
also
USS Wasp (CV7)
any US cruiser class not already in plastic!
same goes for the CL's and DD's!
Some of the old rebuilt BB's

Admiral Hipper

Well, to be fair with all genres (though I'm just getting started in armour) and if I was good with all of 'em:

Ships:
Any scale Yamoto I figure if I make a ship, it better be the biggest

Wingy Thingy-
Any scale B-52 Same as a the ship, might as well make a big one

And my Genre
Armor !!!!
1/35 Dora/ Schwere Gustav (Hmmm... Maybe there's a reoccuring theme here )

Well, those are the kits I absolutely want the most. Though for the floatie and wingy things, (no offense to those guys) I'd go for the Dora over anything

In 1/35:

Ram Mk II
Sexton
Ford or Chev C30 or C60 No. 13 cab. 30 or 60 cwt trucks
Sentinel Mk I
C15TA 15cwt truck

I could die happy with any of them in plastic.
