I'm with you on the Roland - and do it as just the launcher/missiles etc so that one can easily put it on many platforms!

I'd like to see many more of the tactical SAMs done in 1/72nd and 1/35th. It's not like they arn't aggressive-looking things with plenty of super-detailing opportunities, is it?

In 1/35 you can get the AMX-30 DCA as well as the original Rapier, Chaparral and Hawk.  I know since I have them all.

i would like to see some older brittish airliners/turboprops being released as injection moulds.
perhaps if airfix is listening, i would suggest, in either 1/72 or 1/144, the Bristol Brittania, Vicker Viscount, Hawker Siddeley HS748, Blackburn Beverley, Short Belfast,......
on the bench:
-various models

on the drawing board:
-various 1/72 TinTin aircraft
-1/72 Eurocopter Tiger (Belgian Army)
-various other 1/72 and 1/144 aircraft

May I add the Vanguard. From Canada, the DHC-5D Buffalo and DHC-7 / Dash-7.  Prefer 1/72.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I know there's an AMX-13 DCA in 1/35th but I didn't know there was an AMX-30 DCA: who makes it? Also, who makes the Rapier?

Nice one - live and learn. :)

The Rapier is resin though: I'd still like to see it in injection (goes for anything I put on here).
