My same old list, with a few additions because it doesn't seem so unimaginable that we might see them these days:

Vickers A1E1 Independent
A9 cruiser
Soviet BT-5/BT-2/Christie (come on Hobby Boss!!!)
Black Prince
ARL 44
South Korean Black Panther (Academy?)
Leopard Revolution





Well to those who don't believe wish lists will ever amount to anything, 4 out of 7 is not bad! thanks for the A9 announcement Gecko!!!

A9 cruiser - Gecko models
BT-2 - HobbyBoss
K2 - Academy
Leo Revolution - Tiger/HobbyBoss

...and I'll be getting an A10 or two even though they weren't on my list.

How about some Dutch and Belgian early WWII figures and vehicles...plastic not resin. They are so under represented.

Agree, I don't understand why they didn't go with this one, as this is the one pictured on catalogue since 20 years !

Full interior Panzer IV in 1/35. I think there's a good chance of seeing one within a year.
And a figure set; Blackadder, Darling, George, and Baldrick, with possibly a bonus Melchett, though I'd rather have then posed in the trench with a couple of ladders.

You do know Tamiya did this years ago as well as Academy? Takom one will be a huge stepup going by previous releases

The Roden RR Armored Car is a very basic clunky kit. I added the Black Dog accessories kit and some ICM weapons just to make it look a little better.

It's probably already been said here (I admit, I didn't go through the whole thread) but how 'bout some static, fully detailed 1/16 Shermans? We have several German tanks (of course) and some T-34s, etc.; but no M4s. How about some love for us Shermanoholics?

Oh, and some actually nice, detailed real space stuff from the Mercury/Gemini/Apollo years. Preferably in 1/32.

Michael

Yes mate I do know and have all three of them. I have already built the Tamiya
I picked the Takom kit up for $65AUS which is a good price if you ask me.
