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


Close enough for you?

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 ---


Yes,,, Bison-B is fine.  So there is a kit !
Needs a 75% discount for me to consider buying.

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,
Daryl J.

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,
Doc

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

A 1/48 Mitsubishi Ki-83 would be welcome.  Who knows, I might even do it up as an American plane... ;)
