Oh, like the 70's Bandai kit. Not quite full interior, but far ahead of its time.

T-64BM Bulat MBT (Ukrainian). maybe from Trumpeter?
SAV m/43 Stormartillerivagn (Swedish assault gun)
Pansarbandvagn 301 (Swedish APC)
TAM tank (Argentina)
M14/41 and/or M13/40 Carro Armato - a new tech mold
SAS crewman to fit Tamiya's Pink Panther. Maybe Miniart can come to the rescue?
Pansir S1 - tracked SAM / SpAA
BT-5

There is a couple of kits I would love to see,especially in 1/35 scale.First would be a new and more accurate M-50 "Super Sherman",the one that Dragon released over 20 years ago is very inaccurate.Second would be the Stridsvagn L-40.That is just my thought.

M15 CGMC or any of its versions and Swiss Pz68.

Oh, and some pre-WWII US Armor would be nice. All in 1/35 or 1/48.

How about a BergPan....oh, never mind.

I had never really thought about it, but the 1/16th BMW or Zundapp with the side car WOULD be awesome. Imagine the possibilities-and the marketplace for a whole series of 1/16 germans in poses-in relation to the motorcycle?




You know I have the BMW and Zundap kits in 1/9th scale. Someday I'll get brave and build them (these are first issue kits). Rvell owns the molds for the 1/9th Kubelwagon and the Kettencrad, and they build up well. But with all the 1/16 figures that Dragon does; a 1/16 motorcycle would be a winner.

I have been saying it for years..... How can one of the big companies Tamiya, Dragon or even Meng not have done a 1/16 BMW or Zundapp motorcycle and then one with the side car as well. Surely it would sell

Hi, on the subject of 1/16. How about a kettenkrad or stug iii? These would surely sell well and be more managable for many modellers.

The HEMTT EPU that should accompany the Patriot system from Trumpeter.

There's the missile trailer and the radar unit but where is all the electricity supposed to come from?

Off topic but I read somewhere that Trumpeters HEMMT's are "probably based on the Italeri kit".

I've built both and they're not.

We are long overdue for a new-tool Challenger 1 MBT. The Tamiya kit is long in the tooth, and based on a prototype.
For that matter, a new Cromwell Mk IV and VII, and a WW2 Challenger would be most welcome, if done to current standards.
And while we are drowning in Panthers and King Tigers, new Shermans with interior detail would seem an obvious product line, as well.

OK, I've been asking for the same stuff on similar threads over the years (mostly Special Operations Forces FAVs) so time to start asking for something new and different for a change.

I do find that these list help. Several of my desires have been fulfilled.

* 1/20 and 1/24 modern and Sci-Fi weapons and gear accessory sets

* 1/35 Star Wars Rebel and Stormtrooper figures. DML, FineMolds, and Bandai have the Star Wars license and yet no plastic figures? All we see are vehicles, spacefighters, and spaceships

* 1/35 2018 U.S. Special Forces Toyota HiLux and Tacoma 4-door cabs with machine guns or 40mm grenade launcher in the back on pedestal mount

* C-RAM 20mm Phalanx on a trailer or HEMTT
https://www.armyrecognition.com/united_states_us_army_artillery_vehicles_system_uk/centurion_c-ram_land-based_weapon_system_phalanx_technical_data_sheet_specifications_pictures_video.html

* U.S. Army SHORAD Stryker with Leonardo DRS turret
https://www.defensenews.com/land/2018/06/28/us-armys-interim-short-range-air-defense-solution-crystallizes

* 1/35 to 1/16 African modern soldiers, rebels, or militia (it really is time)

* More civilians (and I don't necessarily mean zombie Survivors)

* USMC 8X8 Amphibious Combat Vehicle now entering production

* 1/35 or 1/16 M4 Carl Gustav (yes, it looks different than the M3 Carl Gustav)

* 1/35 Italian Centauro II 105mm or 120mm 8X8 (yes, it looks different than the Centauro I 105mm)

* Better performance on the Release Dates of companies and better, more definitive communications. "Coming Soon!" is...when now...2019?

At least one of your wishes has been granted:

+1 for a new-tool Challenger 1 too.

My wishlist:
Leopard 2A4 in 1:48 and 1:16
Leopard 2A4 Finland
Leopard 2A4 Singapore
Leopard 2 ARV Buffel
Leopard 1 ARV Standard
A new-tooled and decent Challenger 1
MENG should release their Chieftain Mk. 9 (overdue...)
A new-tooled and decent Leopard 1 - first batch
A decent styrene early track for Leopard 1 (Chevron pattern)
Think all these items are overdue.
Cheers / Stephan

Hello,

CUCVs are availalbe in 1/35..

Greetings

Matt



In styrene that I don't have to modify or rebuild to get it accurate. I've read the build blog for a resin one and *wow* it was a rough journey.

I've seen articles on the resin CUCVs and I think they're neat looking kits - but not within my skill set. If they can make styrene models of the VW buses I tooled around in when I was in Germany, they ought to be able to make the CUCV and CUCV Blazer in 1/35 styrene too. The CUCV's and the Dodge M880 that preceded them were ubiquitous until well after the advent of the Humvee and are important vehicles to the US Army and National Guard.
