Same thing I've been wishing for since 1989, a well done kit of the 7TP in 1/35.

With all the Vickerses and T-26s coming out in the last few years, I thought we'd have one by now

erc-90 sagaie... tiger models is planning the diesel and gasoline version, one of which will be coming with a full interior but there hasn't been any new details about it for a year or so..

also a vab... there is so many different version that it would be very profitable for any company..

I'd like for Dragon or Asuka to tool up the m4a3 screaming meemi rocket launcher Gizmo.
Someone else wanted Tamiya Todo an M4a3 Sherman with the 105mm howitzer barrel. Dragon does a nice one, and they doing another run of them.
Time for my yearly request for a new tool M110/M107/M578 series. The current one only resembles one by its name. Also somebody (Takom?) Announced a new M46 tank. Can you please do a Korean War version as well as the M26 as used and modified in Korea?

Howdy Y'all
The release I wish would happen:
Meng and Takom-release some of your kits scaled down to 1:48 scale.
Also a 1:48 Mammoth would be cool.
In 1:35-more decals for existing kits to create more variety. I would like to build some of the vehicles and figures involved in the battle of Monte Cassino. There were many countries and units involved in the battle.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"




Between the older Bison and Star sheets you can do a lot of vehicles that were in the Monte Cassino campaign. Most of the Polish vehicles are especially available from Polish decal companies as well as from Star decals.

A little wish even though it might be redundant with the new kits coming out but at least they'd be simple.

For Tamiya to marry up their M4A3 75 and 105 mm with the suspension from their new M10. Then to make a M4A3 76 VVSS from their HVSS one.

And a M36 to put next to their M10. They did a whole new VVSS suspension for that time to marry it up to their Sherman kits.

And continue the Stuarts with a "Honey" and a true M3A1.

A guy can dream.

All those selections are very good and would give manufacturers ideas and projects for years. I would still like to see an M-29 Weasel in plastic at 1/35 scale. Maybe Tamiya, Riich Models or even Dragon would be most welcome.

Hope everyone here has a great Christmas and New Years holiday.

Cheers!

Things I would LOVE to see (in 1:35)

A correct BR52.80 with the "Wannentender" useful for east german and post reunification dioramas - an extremly common museum engine

A BR 051/052/053 (BR 50 frame with BR 52 boiler) and Wannentender for WEST german early cold war diorama

Would not mind a BR38/Prussian P8 - useful from 1906 till the 1970s in quite a few european settings, post "steam age" as a museum engine

And a few passenger wagons

And a V100 and V200 diesel engine

Hi all,

I'm sure my wish has probably already been included, so apologies for the repetition if that is the case.

However, if I had to pick a single item for a list, I would ask for an injection moulded Alvis Stalwart in 1/35 scale from someone like Meng or Takom.



I still think they look futuristic even though they date back to the mid-60s, definitely something Gerry Anderson...ish about them. And being amphibious you get the choice of modeling them both in and out of the water, .

Cheers, .

G
