All in 1/35 all in plastic, I know resin is a necessary evil but I hate resin kits (I sure do have a lot of them 'though).
Ram II, Ram Kangaroo (on the MkII hull, Daimler a/c, Fox a/c, Lynx scout car, New Mk VII Churchill Crocodile, Beaverette and Morris s/c. And for goodness sake's an updated an updated Tamiya Bren carrier that doesn't have 700 parts.
That would be a good start.

I'd like to see a manufacturer releasing, like Bronco have with their British paras, a series of both British and American 1/35th infantry (European theatre) in kinetic combat poses ie firing-standing, kneeling,prone, thrusting bayonets,throwing grenades. Just straightforward infantry I can use. Every angle of the Germans is covered -fighting, walking, standing around, pointing and pointing again-Wehrmacht, Waffen SS,
Fallschirmjager, Panzer crews, winter clothing. As the British pretty much used the same uniform in all theatres of war it's not too much of a tall order. The US only used two (plus one for airborne) so why are they ignored? I can build a dio of Germans attacking but who? There is noone available to defend. DML released a Vickers crew in bloody overcoats. That's useful. NOT Having said that their Monte Cassino set was the most useful set I've encountered Alliedwise.If they did a number of British combat sets it would cover the Empire troops as well. Aussies, Kiwis and Canadians didn't look any different to British troops. As it stands we can have British troops walking victoriously through anywhere thanks to one Tamiya and one DML set. We can't however depict them taking it or defending it! Over two million members of the German armed forces died during WW2 yet modellingwise it makes it look like they all died of old age as the Allies didn't have any infantry to attack them.

It's just about Christmas and I am thinking of the models I would like under the tree that haven't happen yet or need an upgrade/better version

Mine are simple
1/16 and new 1/9 German motorbike/sidecar
1/35, 1/16 and 1/9 new Kettenkrad by Tamiya or Meng
And just for fun a 1/35 Vulture/Maddog with interior cockpit and pilot .....if only Meng or Tamiya did Mechs in 1/35 .... that would be a wish come true



Boy, you guys have got some reeeally high hopes and expectations...

I'm down to three tanks left that I would really like, now that there is a new tool Panther II and several T29/T30 versions on the horizon.

Turan 2 or 3
IS-6
ARL 44

Honestly, after that I'm on to paper projects like the AMX M4 and FCM 50T and the like.

If we can make more than a few wished: (All in "Plastic" not in resin)

MODERN (1960s-today) civilian and semi-civilian gear like:

+ Modern arc welder and similar tools

+ Modern Cameras (SLR, compacts, Super-8, Vidcams) and cameraman (There is ONE from BlackDog but that is IIRC Resin)

+ Satelite dishes and TVs

+ Modern civilian motorcycles (and cycles). DioPark has some 1960s/70 scooters but they are more SE-Asia than Europe

+ 1960s-1990s civilians and police. The "Miniart" kits are useable into the late 50s but late 60s changed too much. Both teens and adults (for Reforger diorams) and Greenies (for "Greenies at the gate" type dioramas). And some "Schnittlauchs", Bobbies, Flicks and Cops (Bonus points for a Hooker, TJ)

+ Cold war germans, french, brits and amis. They are rare, even more when it comes to say artillery crews (I can get M101, M102 and M114 but no guys to crew them, same for Bradleys, Warriors, Marders...) And not only combat/sprinting (I can get some there if I am lucky) but also doing maintenance, relaxing etc. DOLP has some post cold war guys in nice poses (but white metal). Some along that line.

Armor 1/35 (what I would like to see, I have no idea how well they would sell)

BT-5 (seems like a Tamiya natural after their BT-7 series)

Romanian R-1

A9 Cruiser
A10 Cruiser

T-72m1
M-84a

T-26 model 1939 (version with conical turret and sloped upper hull)
7-TP (another idea for Hobbyboss?)

Vickers 6-ton series (early versions promised by Combat Armour Models, but nothing so far)

TK-3

After Market

Early (pre-July 1941) KV series track would also be appreciated. (WW2 productions was the only company that made them and they are now out of production)

figures

more WW2 US tank crewmen appropriate for summer/pacific settings

more WW2 USMC tank crewmen

WW2 Romanian tank crew

More early war and Soviet tankers

Early cold war NATO and Warsaw pact figures of all types

flakpanzer crew in heer panzer uniforms




I bought the 6 tonners in CAMs' headquarter and saw testsort of another two versions few days ago.

A BT-5 Model 1933 with the cylindrical turret would be great along with a Staghound with a interior also.

Any of the multitude of inter-war armor and soft skins. Hobby Boss is beginning to address the issue, but with a few exceptions this era is pretty poorly represented in 1:35 styrene! How about a Tamiya 1/35 Matilda 1 or better yet, a Vickers Mk. VIb!!!

Is that the only place to get them? Scalemate's marketplace comes up empty on vendors selling it.

That would be the MASSTER camouflage special edition "M88 and trailer" combo kit.

A 1/35 series of CUCVS, the Dodge ones, the Chevy ones with overweight driver figures.

Ok, might not be a long list but here is my 2 cents:

* BAE Systems Land Systems OMC RG32M
* Husky TSV (not the ugly mine-clearing thing...)
* The Quad-kit that Bronco announced some time ago.
* Swedish Archer artillery system.
* Swedish PBV 302
* Swedish PBV 401 (MT-LB, would be nice to be able to build it straight from the box... Hope someone from Trumpeter is listening...)
* And of course lots of Swedish soldiers to go with all the vehicles.

Well, I think that's it!

If Meng can do a 1/35 King Tiger with full internals......I am pretty sure they could do a Kettenkrad with trailers and German motorbike sidecar set all in one box
I would buy 3 boxes
