Feels like its time for a new big airplane model that has been ignored by model companies.   >>>  1/72 C-133  <<<
1/72 B-15 would be welcomed too !

I see you but raise you to 1/48.

Yes, very good catch. The double raised lines raises some serious questions about the sobriety rules at Matchbox.

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

Model companies:  be first out with a 1/72 M-4 Bison bomber.


Close enough for you?

http://air.scale-model-kits.com/products/Myasishchev-3M-Bison-AMO72008.html


To be fair, some of that kit is injection, most of it is fiberglass/resin (fuselage).  I've got the An-22 kit which is in this style and the high cost is associated with how it's made, laid in by hand ---

Dear Model Company,
I would like 1:48 kits of the Supermarine Type 510 and Scimitar,  Hawker P.1121, P.1054, and P.1083.  A Northrop N-144 or N-126, Lockheed CL-288-1, and North American WS.300A would be cool too.

Dear Eduard,
I would also like a proper Mirage IIIE.  And a Douglas Skylancer as it is the only Douglas fighter I have ever seen in real life.
Cheers from WA State,

Replacement tool for the Otaki 1/144 C-5, preferably this time with working nose/tail hatches or at least capability to interchange "open" and "closed" components once built. (Maybe something's wrong with me, but $60US for the Revell C-17 is a tough sell, never mind the $100 for the Anigrand Galaxy--which uses PITA resin to build, and thus I have to factor in hours of psychiatrist time into the build cost.)

Dear Airfix,
Please upstage the Academy-tooled Hawker Hunter.   I am a picky old cuss and dislike the existing offering immensely.   
Sincerely,

A 1/35 G6 please:

Oh yeah!  :icon_ninja: And a Rooikat and a Ratel, while they're at it. I hope Hobby Boss or Trumpeter will do them (after they've discovered modern Italian, Japanese and French armour respectively). Maybe after bridging the gap with an AML 90/Eland? I also wouldn't complain if Meng did them (what with their fascination for the relatively obscure stuff).
Cheers,
Moritz

Dear Revell of Germany:
Dust off the molds for Matchbox's 1/72 Provost trainer. I could use one for my alternate Austria storyline.

Dear Italeri:
A 1/72 SIAI SF-260 would go down a treat.

A Piaggio P.180 Avanti in 1/72 would also be appreciated

A 1/72 AMX in injection form is WAAAY overdue. Seriously, how many people have to tell you that?

Dear Meng:
Your 1/72 Fiat G.91 was well received. Don't stop now, follow it up with a G.91Y!

A 1/72 AMX seeing as how Italeri seems in no hurry to do one.

Dear Airfix:
Please pull your finger out and downscale your 1/48 Sea Vixen!


Dear anyone:
A 1/72 Rooivalk in injection form....please!

1/72 Rooivalk is seconded.

I may have mentioned these before already, but it's been on my mind again lately. When will someone make a good Scimitar and a good Attacker in 1/72?
