It's just about Christmas and I am thinking of the models I would like under the tree that haven't happen yet or need an upgrade/better version

Mine are simple
1/16 and new 1/9 German motorbike/sidecar
1/35, 1/16 and 1/9 new Kettenkrad by Tamiya or Meng
And just for fun a 1/35 Vulture/Maddog with interior cockpit and pilot .....if only Meng or Tamiya did Mechs in 1/35 .... that would be a wish come true

I would like to see Meng or Rye Field take stab at the AAV. I think it they could do more with that vehicle then Hobbyboss.

There are a lot of things I still wish would be done in plastic.. but the two things on the top of my list are.. the British Coyote and Jackal.. and a new M-ATV by one of my three favorite companies - MENG, Takom or Tiger-Model.. because I'd love to build one, but I don't think I could deal with either the Kinetic or the Panda kits.

I wish Dragon would do a FULL interior Sturmtiger.

AND ENOUGH with the freaking DS tracks. I CAN"T stand those things.

How about a BergPan....oh, never mind.

I had never really thought about it, but the 1/16th BMW or Zundapp with the side car WOULD be awesome. Imagine the possibilities-and the marketplace for a whole series of 1/16 germans in poses-in relation to the motorcycle?

That is pretty easy - an M4A1 DD with soft vinyl screen and the option of lowered or raised in the same kit.
I would prefer Tasca but happy to accept Tamiya, DML or anyone else who can do one well.

A Cent Mk 1 or Prototype would be nice as well

To be honest, the bulk of vehicles I would like to see have been covered in 1/35, but I wouldn't mind seeing a modern standards Wespe to replace the old Tamiya and those Russian kits. Something that includes the interior parts the old kits seem to miss would be nice. Unless this is on the "forbidden" list.

I'm more focused on new aircraft in 1/32 at the moment.

I wish someone OTHER THAN RODEN would do the Opel Omnibus, I've heard horror stories about the Roden kit. Dragon would be the obvious choice for me. Tamiya would be another great option.

I would like to see injection molded French WWII halftracks and motorcycles.

We modelers have become very spoiled (spoilt) over the last 20 or so years, with the abundance of new manufacturers and kits. I, for one, never thought I would see the release of so many WWI armored subjects. But I still want more! Typical, I guess....but my stash is growing much faster than I can build. I don't know about you guys but I'll have to live until I'm 600 to finish all of my kits.

The funny thing is...when I was in my 20s I inherited some kits from an older modeler that had passed away. I couldn't figure out why he had so many unbuilt kits. His wife just wanted rid of them. I made my wife aware of the financial investment I have in my stash. She won't give them away. SORRY.

Armour kits I would like to see done in plastic would be a Sherman tank with interior and a Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf H or J with interior and engine compartment. There are already plastic kits of the T-34 with interior (by AFV Club) and a Tiger I with interior by Academy (and Rye Field Model is doing one too?) Meng has announced a King Tiger with interior too.

Secondly I would like a Swedish m/43 SAV assault gun and maybe an Argentine TAM tank

Personally I can't believe that after all those M1 series kits released, no one has come across 1/35 M1 105mm yet (of course, except that old ones). It is indeed an interesting subject as an early version of one of the most famous 3rd generation MBTs in the late cold war era with intriguing camo schemes. Seriously, no one!!!

Vickers A1E1 Independent
A9 cruiser
Soviet BT-5/BT-2/Christie (come on Hobby Boss!!!)
Black Prince
ARL 44
South Korean Black Panther (Academy?)
Leopard Revolution

More time and the ability to do more with the time I do have.
Greater satisfaction from what I already have rather than dissatisfaction about what I do not.

In "Styrene" not in Resin:

1:35 VW Type 181 "Kurierwagen"
1:35 VW Type 183 "Iltis"

The two "german staff cars" of the late 70s to late 80s. A very costly so-so Iltis in resin exists but is "two costly" and "not easily available"

Off lesser interest but also "nice to have"

1:35 LARS and LARS II 110mm artillery rocket system (With Fera Radar system if doable)

And if one does LARS I then please also do a separate Magirus-Deutz Jupiter 6x6 (It's carrier plattform) since that was used quite a lot by the Bundeswehr and civil

==============================

Aside from the military stuff: More 1960s-80s "european" civilian cars in 1:35. An "Opel Manta" (preferably with FoKuHila / mantaletten / blond hairdresser equipped driver)
would be nice (As would be petrol statio kit)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHq2fzE4ryI


As would be a "Ford Transit" and a Golf I / Golf II or a Ford Granada and Ford Escort (Right steering and female SI10 cop optional)
