What are your top 5 dream model kits?

Recommended Posts

1.       A kit that was properly researched. So, that the finish model shape and surface match the real thing.

2.       A kit that its parts are well thought out. Joints and part seams are in logical location and does not require a ton of attention to properly finish. The same goes for how parts are laid out on the sprue.

3.       A kit that does not have access panel open. Just mold them shut and if one wants to open them, have them cut it open.

4.       A kit with clear and well thought out instructions. I wish some of the newer kit manufactures would take some time and study the instructions from any Tamiya kit. 

5.       With the knowledge and understanding of 1-4, a new tooled 1/48 scale F-111 series would be nice  🙂

Agreed, including the new F-111 series!

Plus in 1/48:

Su-25

Su-30SM

New tool Phantom FG.1 and FGR.2 (I believe Z-M are supposed to do them eventually)

B-26 series

Might add a couple more airframes to my list...well three!

 

1. A 1/32 scale A37b. 

2. The F100d in 1/48 and 1/32 scale that accurate!

3. For Revell to do a JU188 and maybe a JU88g in 1/72

Hell, YYYEEEAAAHH!!!, Nachjager! YYYYYYEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHH...!!!:punk::punk::punk: That's my mate!

Beggars can't be choosers, but could it be Jessica Alba (or Jessica Biel), Jaime Koeppe or Sommer Ray instead?

Not a g-string, but a common thong in fluorescent yellow/green colour, please.

Cheers,

I assume you want something newer than the ancient Monogram kit?

After some consideration... 

 

i would love to see a new Tamiya 1:48 A-10. They could do an early one, one with LASTE mods, and a C.

 

I know HB and Italeri have done the A-10 somewhat recently, but that doesn’t make Tamiya any money. And if the Gold Standard did it, it would be right.
