Subjects which are due for a new, modern kit

Recommended Posts

Here I am trying to cut down on my buying...you guys are doing me no justice. Well, after I move some of my stuff out....but, I have seen some great suggestions...as we always do. Here is my wish for today.


  1. 1/48 & 1/32 F-82 TWIN MUSTANG!!! I mean companies are able to sell "What If?" or never manufactured or test aircraft. How about a unique (and combat experienced) F-82 series. I mean come on already, we have to hope for Modelsivit to produce one? (Their P-51H is excellent...minus canopy).
  2. New mold 1/48 A-10. Period. Make money off paint schemes and series/block numbers
  3. New 1/32 F-15C/E updates (new molds) to the Tamiya Kit. Many changes over the years and I am not even seeing the aftermarket companies (albeit one in the USA) who have really tackled the exterior changes and NO ONE has done a proper modern eagle/strike eagle cockpit update of any type. Maybe with the soon to be produced and deployed F-15X "Super Eagle" Tamiya will change up their old molds some.
  4. Tamiya 1/32 F-16D.........old news...I know.
  5. 1/32 Rafale. Preferably not from Kitty Hawk but I bet they'd be the first if it would happen.
  6. Where's our 1/48 or 1/32  B-26/A-26/B-26K? 

That's it for today.

Well, I am a 1/72nd scale guy and I'd say :


* F-84F Thunderstreak

* FJ-4 Fury

* A-26B Invader (come on Hasegawa - B-25/B-26 style)

* P-47N

* F4U-4/5


A few weeks ago F-5E/F would have topped the list, but it seems they are coming...

1/48 B-29.


I see Revell has released the "Platinum" edition but it is still the same tired molds.


A new one...WITH an honest "Silverplate" release or modification (separate inserts and what have you...) would be welcome. Also with accurate engines and exhausts. 

HK you out there???

An up to date 1/48 Eurofighter, the Revell is decent but just look at Hasegawa's 1/72 surface detail and imagine what they would do in 1/48

Amen to that. Long overdue with well over 600 aircraft in the wild this should be one for the masses.

Oh man.....hang them in the Garage....I've seen the HPM B-52 photos and instructions....it's huge.

I would love to see a  Injection moulded 1/48 scale B-2!

 Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to happen, at least in our lifetime!

I'd give most anything for a rag wing Hurricane in 32nd scale! And while pleasing our friends on the dark side of the pond, I think it's time for Tamiya (they have quite a few of the parts done already) to kit a

Spitfire MK. XII. This kit will sell! Plus the Hasegawa FW190D9 series is long over due for the complete retool.
