Tamiya ask you to pick three cars for their next 1/24 scale kits, what would you pick.

Recommended Posts

My selection would be.

1. Mercedes 280, 1970,

2. XJ 5,3 jaguar, 1973,

3. Morris Minor,

I could think of a great deal more, but the above would be very nice, Think the Morris would sell like hot cakes.

Personally I'd like to see some more 1/20 f1 cars from them first 

Ferrari sf70h, redbull rb9, Ferrari f2004, 

Ferrari sf15t, Ferrari f2008, Merc w05/06/07. Toro Rosso str12.

 

In 1/24. Porsche 917/10 or 917/30, jaguar xjr14 and a Mercedes clr (the one that flipped in lemans 1999) or a Bentley speed 8. Basically any winning/interesting racing car lol.

Afternoon Chaps :bye:

 

I will definately go for a Morris Minor...

But then ask for something a bit more exotic, like a Maserati 3500GT or one of the early Lamborghini's....

(definately nothing with a Ferrari Badge :) )

 

But in reality...

- Bugatti Veyron 

- Lancia Beta Monte Carlo

- Triumph Spitfire

 

:ninja:Mad Steve:ninja:

Probably a better chance of Ebbro making some of these, rather than Tamiya!

I'd really like to see Ebbro come up with some 1/12 scale F1 cars.

There isn't a snowball's chance but-

 

A Sunbeam Tiger,

A 88 Isuzu Impulse, 

and a 62 Buick LeSabre.

 

And as a alternative choice,  a series 1 Mitsubishi Ellipse with the option to build it with pop up lights and any of the original tri star models.

No need to build a wall. After the vote your stash will be worth almost nothing.

Wouldn't there be more chance for vehicles that have various versions on the same body or part thereof. Bound to be more mileage in those for Tamiya and the modeller.

 

Morris Minor- saloon, van, traveller, pick-up. Plenty of racing and custom possibilities too. [There are a few votes for this already]

Newer Transit - various van body sizes, pick-ups, mini bus, car transporter.

Land Rover Defender - numerous versions possible.

As per previous post where do we vote, post kit wish list? I can't find anything on the Tamiya website. It's of little use adding to this discussion if it is just idle speculation.:hmmm:

I would think Revell will pick up on the Minor, it's shouting, tool me, and I will make money for your company.

kit makers have maybe missed their chance for 60s every day vehicles, but the 70s, will have plenty of mouth watering topics, Cortina Mk 4, would do well, and daft as it sounds, Marina, can also think of a few Vans

Ebbro Lotus 72 plus Tabu Gold Leaf decals already exists.

I imagine the same for the 917 but from Fujimi.

 

Some very underwhelming choices here. I know it's all wishful thinking but Cortinas????
