Civilian vehicles (cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, etc.), both modern & historic, in 1:35th scale!!!!!!!! :icon_punal:

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.

I've got a couple of 1:32 cars (Airfix Jag & Aston Martin racing double set) for a post-apocalypse diorama with 1:35 figures but there the scale difference becomes a Whif element in its own right. What I mostly want vehicles for, though, is to put in dio's with my armour & there 1:32 just doesn't cut it, it has to be 1:35 (even if they are Whif scenarios)!  :icon_swat:

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.


Thanks to the mighty Google, I've found out what it is. It's a Swiss upgrade for their indigenous Pz68 tank, equipping it with a 120mm L/49 gun. I've found only two further pics of this.



SOURCE, with more info HERE.

It sounds rather simple but a 1:48 Sea Fury should have happened a long time ago.   Now a Scimitar and Meteor F.8 to match would be gravy.

The Sea Fury is already produced in 1/48 by a couple of companies. 



There are also 1/48 Meteor F.8s available.



The only 1/48 Scimitar available is the Dynavector/Sanger/Nimbus Vacuform one though, so I agree with you there.  I nice injection moulded one would go down a treat.

When I was at Woodford, one of those actually visited to disgorge a Nimrod fuselage. Since I worked in an office in the middle of the factory with no windows, I needed somebody to tell me about it, which they did: the day after..... :(

-Gulfstream V or 550 bizjet (PREFER 1/48 but any scale, as long as it's one that also has an F-14, a CH-53E and a Pave Low conversion kit available will do).
-Cessna Citation CJ3.
-A-6F Intruder II conversion.
-EA-6B ADVCAP/VEP conversion.
-Tomcat 21 conversion.
-Weapons sets with AGM-130 (be nice if Skunk would upgrade their GBU-15), GBU-28 "Deep Throat", Hellfire with quad-launcher, and Vertical Engagement Racks both straight and Canted (BRU-55/-57).
-1/48 civilian vehicles and figures.

That's a start...
