If you could make a manufacturer make any kit...
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, December 13, 2003 3:05 PM
what would you want that kit to be?

I'd say a 1:48 F3H Demon

it'd look great alongside an F4H!

Still waiting for Tamiya to make a Crusader or Valentine tank.

Tamiya would be the choice of companies and the Sexton in 1/35 scale would be my choice.

A 1/35 scale M 1075 Palatized Load System and an extra flat rack would have to come with the kit.
For those of you who don't know what this is it's the bigger version of the hemmit, it's got 10 wheels a lift arm in the middle to lift up a rack system and a crane in the middle of the truck for the extra lifting part. I placed pics of a few on Rons site if you wanna check it out.

A 1/48 scale B-18 Bolo.. Big ugly between the wars bird, but it would sure look interesting on my shelf.

A couple of things come to mind:

A fresh new 1/48 F-101 Voodoo kit would be great. The old Monogram kit has seen better days.

Definitely a 1/48 Spey engined Phantom. Easily the most neglected F-4 family member by the modeling industry.

More tank transports than just the dragon wagon, all though it is cool some of the lesser known ones like the M-911 would be nice.
In a different topic, some detailed modern day fire apparatus. All that is really available is older stuff.

I would like to see a Heinkel He115 in 1/48. Preferably not as a short-run kit. Attaching the floats would be even worse than MPM's Arado Ar196.

There are a lot of Armor and A/C that have been built maybe model manufactors out there will make some that are listed. I remember in Shep Paines Modeling tanks and military vehicles. He scratched built a M51 super Sherman. Academy now makes that same tank. Thanks for sharing.

I'd have Revell-Germany produce a 1/72 U.S. Navy LCAC (Landing Craft Air Cushion). Then I could park a few M1A1's inside and hit the beach!

I'd ike to see a REALLY good 1/24 scale AC Cobra (289 or 427 - doesn't matter), a similar GT40, a 1/48 or 1/32 Aeronica Champ, and (I agree, Chris) a large scale Phalanx gun.

Decent size Honda Goldwing, not the 1/15 one that was released.

1/6 Honda Goldwing Trike, but preferably not by Tamiya not impressed with their 1/6 scale offerings.

I'm not sure if I'm permitted a second choice, but here it is anyway! I'd request a 1/72 Jawa Sandcrawler from Finemolds.

qmiester...

Airfix had a Hs-123 and a Whirlwind, no..? And the 1/72 Taube..? I know there's a 1/48 kit, and I know I've seen some at shows in smaller scales, but they may have been scratch... Might be worth checking the older catalogues of Eduard, BlueMax and the like...

I'd like to see more "Secret weapons of the Axis" type models, such as Japans version of the Me262 or their combat autogyro (yes, I said combat, they used a few for ASW, but their 'carrier' was sunk, ironically, by a sub), more of Me and FW "future jets", similar to the ones that the USSR based the Mig15 on, and more infantry figures to go with 1/72 and 1/35 scale. I find the selection and poses to be a bit limited....
Also, I'd like to see more "brown water Navy" craft. So far I've only sen a PBR and one Coasty.
