1/48 or better 1/32 HP Hampton.

 

 


Fonderie Minatures did/do a 1/48 Hampden

Tigger Models do it as a vac in 1/32. Blank canvass comes to mind

 

Also coming to mind anyone say 1/32 Blenheim or Fairey Battle?

1/48 Falcon 20

 

I think all the other airplane subjects on my list have been done in one form or another, not necessarily done well (1/144 B-52D for one), but done.

 

As for other genres:

1/24 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo

1/24 1st-gen Lotus Turbo Esprit

1/1400 Klingon K’Tinga battlecruiser

A new 1:48 Hampton that's not made of FM Chewing gum would be wonderful! :tasty: As would the Stirling & Halifax.

Left Field - 1/1 scale, Baywatch-era Pamela Anderson - in some soft, squeezy material .................

   


If left to Trumpeter's B team it would come out like a female Incredible Hulk

Unlikely but I would love the following in 1/32 scale

BP Defiant

Fairey Fulmar

Fairey Battle

Fairey Barracuda

Fairey Firefly (BPF version)

 

Mind you my most wanted the Westland Whirlwind did appear.

 

Cheers

Good calls, i'd certainly have one of each.

 

A 32nd DH Hornet would be rather sexy too.

Do that in 1:48 and I’ll bite your arm off :)

 

Hasegawa already did 11 years ago.

I don't know if it had folding wings. But i'll keep the arm if you don't mind. Can't build models with just one.

What I would really really like is "modern era", but really from my childhood in the seventies and eighties, British railway locomotives and stock in O or 1 guage scale. Static, injection moulded with no intention to run, as that compromises everything. I would absolutely love any locomotive, but imagine a diorama of a class 25, 31, 09, 86, 47, 50 or just about anything on scale wheels, scale track and a few bits of lineside equipment! If this is actually available and I've missed it please let me know....

Last but not least a 1/48 or 1/32 F-86 Sabre Hog.

I'm in for either one and either kit would feature both the 6 x .50 machine gun and 4 x 20mm cannon option to allow building Block 1, 5 and 10 variants.

My wish list:

1/72 C-124 Globemaster II with optional parts to make the A or C model aircraft

1/32 B-58A Hustler with optional parts to make the TB-58A

1/32 RA-5C Vigilante

I know the B-58 would be huge but, thankfully, I have the shelf space and could display two, perhaps even three.

1/48 Gulfstream G550, G650 and G700

True, but it's a resin kit and I haven't built even a simple one of those. The C-124 I have in mind would be injection molded, hence the reason I added it to the list.

I've built 2 resin kits,  and wouldn't want to again. 

Injection every time.

I guess we should just proceed on the basis of injection kits due to the resin-shy nature of the majority :winkgrin: Original post updated.

 Or, from my point of view, resin every time. But why are modellers shy of resin? It's been around for decades (my first resin build was circa 1986) and vac forms too (Rareplanes FJ-1, circa 1981 for me).

 

So maybe this thread should be, "What kit that no-one has manufactured in the last five years, that doesn't require any effort?". I realise that there are those in the Tamiya "chuck it together" group (good for you - no criticism), but we aren't all here to get to the destination quickly with minimal effort. Plus by the way, if you exclude yourself from any media. you are missing some truly great stuff!
