1/48 Do31:

Would look great either in a diorama with a Harrier or possibly as a shipboard aircraft.

Sentinel Chicken drew up some really nice Do-31 profiles a few years back.  Wonder if he would be willing to share those here on the forum?

A really well made 1/48 Wright Flyer, Bleriot, and Six Piston Merlinsyde would be great.

Which Bleriot?

1/72 WW2 destroyer escort.  The two five inch gun version.  And yes it is long at 4ft 3in. 
May not be enough buyers out in model land to justify it.  However there would be market for at least one kit --- me.

Ship-wise, I'd like to see a new 1/700 HMS Rodney and Nelson. Surely there must be a market for that!
And an angled-deck Essex for operations off the coast of Vietnam. Crusaders, Skyhawks, Skyraiders,....
And some more Cold War and contemporary Russian stuff in 1/700. Would be neat if Trumpeter scaled down some of their 1/350 Russian destroyers.
Cheers,
Moritz

Dear Mr. Tamiya,
Please produce a Bristol Beaufighter in 1/72 scale and a Bristol Blenheim series and Beaufort series in 1/48 as well.   
Kindly,
Doc

Barling bomber in 1/72. 
So I can upgrade it, starting with the engines.

...upgrade it ...
I think you'd be more into the realm of redesign with that drut.  ;D

Once upon a time there was one.  I think Squadron may have also done a resin one.

If we're going with stuff that's like to appear only in resin and/or vacform, I'd love to see a Helwan Ha-300 in any form.

The resin HF-24 was by Alliance Models.  Here's a review: http://www.internetmodeler.com/2001/august/first-looks/alliance_marut.htm

Plastic 1/72 F-90.    Fair price not in resin unlike it is today.
Love to see one fly with two F-404s onboard.
