Hi folks,

I'm sure there has been a thread for this before but bugger if I can find it (mods???), so here:

What is your current kit wish list - i.e. what kit do you wish was available the most?

For me it used to be a 1/48 Bugatti Model 100 Racer, but thanks to the wonderful people at Planet Models, that is satisfied :thumbsup:.

My current most desired kit would be a HP Victor in 1/48.  I have hope this might eventuate here, but am not holding my breath.

So over to you - what kit do you wish for most of all right now?

Regards,

Greg

If it's one kit then it has to be an injection Seafang/Spiteful, which hopefully will be out latter in the year from AZ

Previously it was the Moonbat - thanks to Arnold I now have one
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.

A decent DH Sea Vixen
DH Super Venom
TSR2 (reissue - not paying scalpers' prices on ebay )

Saro Princess (might have to settle for 1:144 for this one!)

1:700 British ships - HMS Warspite, Ark Royal IV, Victorious, Iron Duke 1912, Vanguard 1946 for a start! Fed up with endless Iowas and Yamatos.

My 1/72 wish-list:

A Mirage III/5/50!
A MiG-23/-37 Flogger family!
A JA-37 Viggen family!
A Mirage 2000 family!

All of these kits have kits, but those are mediocre at best and we could definitely need newly tooled kits!

Hobby Boss will fill a gap with their upcoming Rafale-family in 1/72  :party: :party: :party: :party: :party: and Academy will fill a gap with their 1/35 CV9040 infantry fighting vehicle.  :party: :party: :party: :party: :party:

Another gap to fill would be decent kits of Vietnam-era Essex-class carriers and a HMS Nelson or Rodney in 1/350 and 1/700.
Cheers,
Moritz


Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

72nd- Canadair Argus

I've got one Todd   ;D  vacuform I have to admit and one of only ten made, so a nice injection one would be most welcome

My wish is that Aircraft in Miniature gets back into production, there's a number of the kits there I would like to get my hands on.

Tell you what would be a nice thing to have: a series of kits of the Type 12 and Leander class frigates. These were Britain's most successful post-war design and deserve better than the Airfix 1/600th effort.

You could have three basic hulls: Type 12, Narrow-Beam Leander and Broad-Beam Leander, with pre-scored cut-outs for the Aussie Ikara wells, and then different helo/weapon/sensor fits on different sprues: mix and match to make all the many variants.

Off the top of my head, there are the following:

Type 12 RN early (2 x limbo)
Type 12 RN late (1 x limbo + helo)
Type 12 Australian
Type 12 South African

RN Leander NB early (2 X 4.5" + 2 x Bofors)
RN Leander NB early (2 x 4.5" + Seacat)
RN Leander BB early (2 x 4.5" + Seacat)
RN Ikara Leander
RN Exocet Leander (standard)
RN Exocet Leander (towed array)
RN Seawolf Leander

Dutch Leander early (2 x 4.5")
Dutch Leander late (1 x 76mm + Harpoon)

Aussie Leander (Ikara instead of helo)

Chilean Leander BB early (Alouette + Exocet)
Chilean Leander BB late (Puma  + Harpoon)

Indian Leander

Probably more.....
