Sherman BARV in plastic.
Portuguese decals for Panhard EBR in Angolan war.
Better Italian M40 tank.
Figure sets for Hungarian, Romanian and Finnish troops in summer uniforms. New Korean War figure sets in plastic also wouldn't hurt.

I was thinking as I had a real one. I would love to see Meng do a Jeep Wrangler with soft top with the top down in 1/35, it would look great in some zombie dios

There are a lot of things I still wish would be done in plastic.. but the two things on the top of my list are.. the British Coyote and Jackal.. and a new M-ATV by one of my three favorite companies - MENG, Takom or Tiger-Model.. because I'd love to build one, but I don't think I could deal with either the Kinetic or the Panda kits.

Hisham



Top of my list too.All of above and Trumpeter or wouldn't hold my brearh,Tamiya.

As well as all the aforementioned Bundeswehr stuff which i would love to see, how about a Mercedes 1017A or the equivalent Iveco/Magirus and Merc L911 and civillian cargo and tractor trucks. British stuff would include a decent range of plastic Landrovers from S1 to 90/110/130. scammell pioneer family and Bedford from OXD/OYD/MW through RL's to MK/MJ and an Abbott to go with the FV432 would be very welcom. US would be new kits of their cold war era M series trucks,all of them and CUCV's.

I hope, Trumpeter will hurry up releasing early T-72 versions. I would like to build a Finnish T-72M1.

Also, I would be happy, if Meng will release the Chieftain.

A plain M1 105mm and a new Challenger 1 Mk.3 kit would be also very welcoed by me.

I shall continue with my broken record tantrum rant.

LVT1 - the first of the Amphibs which brought about the USMC's true Amphibious Assault capability which continues today

LVT3 - only variant of the WWII never produced in scale (Verlinden did resin LVT1) which landed on Okinawa then served through the Korean conflict

LVT3(C) - modified LVT3 which served through Korean conflict

Produce me some more freak'n AmTracs!!!
Please.

A real FAUN SLT-50 Elefant (not the Franziska as done by Accurate Armour and Trumpeter but the real Elefant with 8x8 tractor and trailer with large all-terrain wheels)

It would be cool to replicate this setup:

Hi, ALL!!!

I am NOT even going to mention ANY WWII US/Allied vehicles, i.e, AFVs and/or Soft-skins, as they WILL NEVER COME TO FRUITION. The vehicles that I, and a few others in this thread want, we shall NEVER SEE... So have decreed the "Illuminati"...

Some early 1:35 WWII armour.

A Matilda I would be very nice.

A Crusader - yes we have the airfix/italeri but they are ancient

A cruiser A9

Can't see it happening but you can always wish.

Cheers,

Nigel
