Yes! The Dynavector kits are great, but an injected one would be better. I wouldn’t be surprised if Airfix does one At some point.


I have a long-ish list of 1/48 kits that need a redo, mostly because the latest version was botched. F-100 series, F-101 series, Mirage F.1, F2H-2, for example. We also need a better 1/144 B-52 series, especially the D.

Decent 1/48 F-105D/G, F-111 and A-10A/C kits are what I'd like to see most. I don't care for open avionics or engine bays, radar, etc. (most guys that like that go aftermarket or scratch anyways), but it is pathetic when modern kits have worse shape issues than Monogram or Academy kits from the last millenium.

Also hope for a 1/72 B-1B (and that Modelcollect does a better job than with the B-52G/H).

Yes!!  Long overdue. Hopefully after that we’ll get a new P-51D.   

Agreed,  the Eduard one is  inaccurate  (plastic is gray instead of magenta, too much ejection pin markings in the canopy frames, et al).

Your dreams are my dreams. It is up to our Russian friends (Zvezda) to make these dreams come true ,as we can count no more on hasegawa or tamiya.

Yea verily, early, late and T Stick variants. Also a conversion for a RF 105, they only built 3 one is on display at Bolling AFB in DC. and I believe the other 2 were scraped. Would be a great what if'er.

Cheers :cheers:

after starting the Trumpeter 1/32 hellcat I will second the call for a GOOD new tool kit.

also the 1/48 F-102 really needs an update. there have been several really good decal releases over the last few years, and the old revellogram kit is really showing it's age.
