Time in a box. Open the box and you get 8 hours of extra-dimensional time to work on a model kit (or any hobby/pastime) that can be used in quarter or half hour increments. When the chosen increment is over you return to the normal time stream.

A M1 105mm 3-in-one with options to do early production, updated versions and extra turret for M1IP.

A out of the box Tunisian service M3 Lee with proper exhausts and storage. For Academy it'd be a simple mix of M7 Priest parts with the M3 Lee. Not Dragon, because the way things are they'd give it to their Black Label team. I'd love to see what they'd do to the superstructure of a Lee.

Or Airfix to re-release their old 1/32 scale ones.

Academy to do a slick M60. They've done the turret in their Magach 7. Do re spaced return rollers and deleted shock absorber with the tracks and wheels from their M60A2 and it'd be an affordable alternative to the flawed Dragon kit. Doubtful AFV-club will do one? I think it'll come when a Korean War Centurion variant does.


That's just me.

Did the Airfix 1/32 Grant. Really pretty nice and fun. Check it out in my gallery, diorama-"Serenade". IMO the Grant was the better vision of the 'Lee' concept.

An injection molded AML 90 or 60



Got that right! A vehicle that has been out there for over 50 years, used by at least 55 countries, and found on at least 5 continents, and we're still seeing 'paper panzers' released (not that it's a bad thing mind you).

I've been butchering Azimut's 1/35 resin kit of this little jewel for quite some time (still not finished/satisfied to call it complete yet), as I look for aftermarket goodies to improve it with.

And decals...man, I've got decals to outfit at least 30 countries of these guys, let alone the abundance of paint schemes.

The 'net provides tons of pics as well.

As for who would likely be a choice for this 'hottie' of a kit? Well, Takom produces some great oddball kits, Amusing Hobby is another. Tamiya is always a good choice.

Just sayin'!!!!




I've been writing e-mails and hustling any company that has a public email​ address for the last couple years but nothing yet.

Maybe if we get a decent group to fire off a few emails they'll start to notice... I don't know what's actually involved in a kit coming to life though.

Easier to say what I do NOT want to see:

Anything before 1947 or post 1991
Anything Sherman, Panther, Tiger, .....

===================

Otherwise I am open for everything either not existing or only in "1970s era quality" from the cold war period including civilian vehicles and figures. Preferably NATO, even better if west german. All in 1:35 scale:

DKW Munga
VW 181 "Kurierwagen" (military and civil versions)
VW 183 "Iltis" (both standard and medevac versions)
VW Golf (all versions) with police option
VW Passat (all versions) with police option
Various civilian cars from Fiat, Ford, Opel or the bigger BMWs
Civilian cars from other countries (France, US, GB)

Civilians. Lots of civilians. With post 1950s clothing (MiniArt can be used into the 1950s). Give us Hippies, Peaceniks, Greenies. And Police. Both "Dirk Mathes" type "everyday gear" and "riot gear". Give use criminals so we can do a "Dirty Harry" or "Gang des Traction Avants" dio

Soldiers. Not only "infantry on the attack" but also gun crews for the towed howitzers (I can get the guns), maintenance, normal NON-US Infantry. Sitting, prone, standing etc.

Gen 1 military trucks like the MAN 630 series (used well into the 1980s)

HS30 IFV
Hotchkis IFV/recon tank (all versions)
A new tooled Marder 1(everything before A3)
A Unimog 404 in the various versions

I'd love it if tamiya went out of their comfort zone and released a few experimental vehicles.

* M56 Scorpion

* A new tool Panzerwerfer

* A new tool M48a2

* Hawk missile battery

* A new retooled M18 Hellcat

* A new tool M36 Jackson

* A new tooled M46 and M26 Korean War issue

Forgot a handful of big ones (for me)

* A new tool and correct M551 Sheridan from Vietnam.

* for Hobby Boss to do the 260 and 261 armored cars

* a 10 ton wrecker from Vietnam era

* For Dragon to do a 250/9 half track

* For Kitty Hawk to get off their hind end and release the Huey in 1/35th scale. I really need to have this one.

Looks like two 88mm Flak 36 on a "Schwerer Platformwagen". The pieces are available (Railcar from Dragon, 88mm from various sources)

The two 88s are certain, but I found no drawings and designs of the thing in general(quick session only), it would be a lot of guesstimation and creative engineering involved?! Maybe someone has already built one, would be awesome
