Almost but not quite.  It is a conversion kit and not a complete kit in a box.  Oddly enough, I have a resin 1/32nd scale CAC CA-27 Sabre conversion that I found in the bargain box at Discount Models in Tacoma (University Place) several years ago.  It along with one of my Hasegawa 1/32nd scale F-86 kits will hopefully see it converted to the CA-27 unless someone offers a complete injection molded plastic kit as an alternative.  I would still prefer an actual kit of the CA-27 over a resin or vacuum formed conversion just for the sake of keeping my sanity.

Well it's an new injection fuselage and parts along with a complete Academy F-86

In addition to the US heavy tanks previously mentioned, I would like to see the following, all in 1/35 scale and injection molded:

US T20 medium tank family, especially the T23 VVSS and T23E3(?) with torsion bar suspension. Similarly, the T25 with both HVSS and torsion bar suspension (T25E1?) would be nice.

US/UK T14 assault tank.

The one prototype/ "paper panzer" that seems to have been over-looked is the VK3002(DB), Daimler's very T34-ish Panther prototype.

I know there's a 1/35 scale resin version of the T23 VVSS on the way from Commander Models but I've never been a big fan of resin. The roughly $150 US price tag is also a bit more than I'd like to spend.

Dear Tamiya,
I would love to have a simple, yet reasonably detailed 1/35 1992 Range Rover LWB, a 2007 Range Rover, a 1994 Defender 110, and a Discovery 2.
Yep I would enjoy that.   
That and a scaled down to 1/48 and 1/72 Spitfire Mk.IXc/e.
Kind regards,
A voice in the wilderness

Any reason why Revell Monogram?  You can get decent kits of most of these from other companies in these scales..except the F-35 that is. :(

I wholeheartedly concur with the above. But please, let's toss in the Convair XB-46 for good measure!

I've just been surprised to find out that there seems to be no kit of the Fw-187 Falke in production at the moment: that definately needs fixing, I mean, it actually flew and entered a (sort of) service!


MPM/HML did one in 1/48 Resin which can still be found occasionally (I know since I have one):



I also understand that there are a couple of 1/72 ones produced by various companies.  Although maybe not in production right now, they are still available.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

There was/is one done in 1/72 scale, injection moulded too.  By 299 Models out of the USA

Revell is fairly cheap at Fred Meyers in Wa.  With the economy, 10$ models are great!

Dear Tamiya,

Your 1:32 Spitfire and Mustang models are wonderful.... Please pick a Hurricane next.

A MkIID would be especially nice
