I want Revell to release a 1/144 F-16 with all the bells and whistles. After their 1/144 F-14A/B/D, F-15E, F/A-18C/D and F/A-18E (with F and G almost certainly in the making), an F-16 would round out the series rather nicely.  Just 10 days left until the news for 2012 are announced on modellversium.de but I'm not exactly holding my breath just yet.

And I want Revell to do a 1/72 F-15E. After Fujimi effed up their chance (is actually a 1/67 snap kit), Revell should give it a go.

And a proper 1/72 Su-25 and MiG-29 by Zvezda would also be very nice.  :D

An injection molded AMX in 1/72nd or 1/48th! :want:


Then tell them! HERE'S Italeri's survey for 2012! With any luck and if enough of us do it, they might just listen and get a kit out before the type's retired.

What's that in the upper left of the picture? Some M48/M60 upgrade? At first I though it's the Super M48 upgrade, but it's not.
Cheers,
Moritz

Right - that is the B-15.
Modernize with at least B-29 or B-50 engines and gun turrets.
Maybe turn it into an ALCM launch platform.

Boeing Model 314 Clipper (C-98) in 1/48th scale would be nice.

In a town called Poulsbo which is located a few miles north of where I live is a tourist focused gift shop that has some interesting things.  One of which is a metal 1/48th scale model Boeing 314 with a huge price tag affixed to it.  While it would be tempting to acquire the model, I can not justify paying that much money for a model airplane.

1/48th scale F-86H molded in plastic and not resin.

Well Collect-Aire did have one out but those are rarer then Hen's teeth and you have to be willing to part with part of your anatomy to buy one when they do become available.  A new, injection moulded one would certainly be nice.

Another I would like in either kit or conversion form would be a 1/35 Air Defense Anti-Tank System (ADATS) system:

Given the option to acquire the Collectaire Savage or carve a model of the Savage from a piece of wood, I think the wood carving option would win.

ADATS would be nice, as would many ADV type vehicles.

For me, it remains decent, different 35th scale small arms or a wider variety of troopies in the same scale.

Do you want to model it or live in it?  ;)

1/72nd AMX

1/76th post war British AFV: FV432, Ferret, Fox, CVR(T) variants other than Scorpion and Scimitar, decent Centurion.

1/600th or 1/700th decent Leander class frigate.

Some more US and Brit paper-plane what-ifs: it seems like a German designer only had to scribble down the results of a bad night after too much beer and a dodgy bratwurst for it to be eagerly kitted, but you only get a smattering of the US and Brit ones that even flew, let alone the pure paper ones.
