To the folks at Revell Monogram: <snip>
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. :(
Revell is fairly cheap at Fred Meyers in Wa.  With the economy, 10$ models are great!

Definitely a very good reason when you are looking at building your project in a larger scale.

M4A1E8 Sherman.
x2
Hopefully Tasca will make a large hatch M4A1 soon enough, as they have announced a Hybrid-hull Sherman Firefly a month ago.  Anyways Tamiya has all the parts to make a M4A1E8 in their M1 and M51 kits that came out last year.

^ A friend and I spoke to a Revell representative (their project manager, actually) at a model show and he said that there will be a 1/144 A400M in the future.  :)

I hear you on the 1/144 NH90!  :) Would like to see that one again, too. And their CH-53G/HH-53 in 1/144 (going for silly money on eBay).
Cheers,
Moritz

Yeah, it was a nice and attractive concept but ruined in the execution.  When I was at Northrop, we had some folk who'd worked on the T-46 and there were some real problems that Fairchild's management had ignored or tired to "paper over".  It didn't work.

While not quite 1/35th scale you should be aware that Revell just released their old snap-tite 1/32nd scale cars again.  Camaro, Mustang, and a couple of others.  MSRP was around $9.00 here in the states.  These may have been released originally under the Monogram brand name before Revell bought them out.

But, of course, the kit with Norwegian decals would be running 6-7 years late  ;D

Does make me wonder though, why aren't airframe makers begging (bribing?) model producers to kit their products? To me, it'd seem like great publicity amongst the taxpayers of potential purchasing nations.

To a degree their needs are covered by the display model industry often using wood.  For instance, here's a 1/40 scale display model of the NH90 available for purchase.
