It's Christmas....and time for our annual Wish List !

Hi Guys,

The irritatingly cheerful Wayne here again. Merry Christmas to one and all!!
We haven't had a poll here for a looooong time. And yes, we've been pretty doggone lucky these past couple of years, haven't we?

But it's almost traditional here on the Allied DG. So let's have some fun with it (oh boy!).

Needless to say, I've got a few dream-kits. So I'll start the ball rolling...

1.A new Bren Gun Carrier.

2.A Sexton

3.A short wheel based CCKW to tow our new 105's and 40mm Bofor's!

4.An M5 gun tractor to tow our new 155mm howitzers.

5.An M20 Diamond T combination tank transporter for all our new British and Russian armour.

6.A water-cooled 50cal AA gun.

7.Humber MkIII light reconnaissance car.

I'm sure there's a few that I forgot....

Wayne (already putting up his Christmas lights) Killeen

I've not previously contributed to one of these lists, but I'd like to have a go...

December 12 2011, 1:46 AM 

Nice idea, Wayne - a good start to the festive season!

Being a Matilda obsessive, I'll start with a couple of aftermarket Matilda things I'd reeeally like to see in the coming year:

- the different variations of mantlet (I have actually tried doing these myself, but have failed miserably thus far);
- the big stowage sack that can often be seen hanging from the back end of Matildas in the desert;
- the rack for the small "flimsies" tins (the etch Tigermodels one is quite nice, but I find I'm really struggling with it. A resin rack might possibly work);
- empty POL tin panniers, which can have tins added if needed; and
- the variation of track having welded-on "overshoes" (used prior to the more well-known "spudded" track)

I agree with your suggestions of new carrier, Sexton and Diamond T kits. I'd also like to suggest (in injection plastic form):

- A9 and A10 cruisers
- Tetrarch
- Daimler armoured car
- a host of AEC variants (Matador, armoured cars etc)
- Tasca to release a welded hood M4A2
- a conversion for the Tasca M4A4 to create DD tanks
- various Churchill AVRE fittings (bridge, bobbin etc)
- an early Crocodile trailer
- AFV Club to release M3 Stuarts (tho I'm happy they're busy with Churchills, LVTs and Valentines!)
- Morris FAT

There are probably more I can't immediately think of, but that'll do for now

And, finally, decals - I'd like to see more decals of Canadian AFVs for Italy and NW Europe. While there are some good generic AoS and formation sign sets out there, I'd like a few sets depicting specific vehicles, along the lines of decal sheets produced by Echelon and Bison. I'd also like to see nice decals for New Zealand Valentines and more British LVTs (in particular a few LVT-2s)

Well, we can always dream!

Best regards

There is a similar W/L on the "General" forum.

F.A.T. is a good choice. M-20 w/ Rogers trailer another great choice. New tooled Crusader. A U.S. 37mm A/T gun. New tooled Univ. Carrier and a Lloyd carrier. A dry stowage M4A3 Sherman.

my wishes...

December 12 2011, 8:51 AM 

A lot of great kits have appeared in the last couple years, many unexpected. There is still room however, so let's go;

1) An M18 "Hellcat" that actually looks like an M18. Two efforts so far with many citicisms of the hull form. THere are DOZENS ofthe real thing out there, but we don't have a really GOOD M18. C'mon guys, this thing can be achieved!

2) For Miniart to actually produce the US tank crew sets that have been announced happy.gif

3) An M10 with the hull and turret that stand up to the reviewers!

4) An M5-series High Speed Tractor to tow the new 155mm howitzer

5) For Dragon to produce long-announced kit #7272, the 1/72nd scale M4A3E2

6) Some resin US heads with M1 helmets in 1/72nd scale. There are many decent US figures in 1/72nd, but all too often the helmet has wrong profiles or the face has a big seam of soft plastic. A series of nice resin heads (ala Hornet) would help out.

7) A nice plastic 57mm AT gun M1-series.

8) Good 1/35th resin wheels/tires for the US 155mm howitzer and the US 105mm howitzer.

9) 90mm AAA gun - too common to be ignored forever (I hope)

That's about it for now. Merry Christmas to all!

Gary B.

DD & WW1

December 12 2011, 9:06 AM 

My wishes for 2012, besides a safe and rewarding year for all of you, are...

a styrene DD Sherman, I know it will be an expensive kit, but it would be worth it.

Tamiya did such a bang up job on the B1 bis, would love to see them tackle a WW1 British Mk IV and an FT-17.

And finally, I wish for more new Sherman's from Tasca (M4A3 75, M4A1 big hatch, M4, M4 Composite).

I think that would be about all I could afford, actually.

He`s makin` a list

December 12 2011, 10:45 AM 

And it should all be in 1/35th scale. I want:

1) for Tasca to do an AMC Somua S35
2) Dragon doing a completely revamped AMD 178 Panhard (although I could live with Masterbox finally putting it out there)
3) an accurate Hotchkiss H38 (one that does not have dimensional issues with the hull and suspension
4) a new Renault R35
5) a SU-122 by Dragon
6) for Tasca to do an M10c Achilles
7) for Tasca to do an M18 Hellcat (with these two they could do the entire M36 series as well)
8) Tamiya to revamp their Char B1 bis (add all those bulletproof hexagonal bolts on the sponson top runs, improve the antenna pod, etc.)
9) for Tasca to do a M4A4 DD
10) A new OQF 6pdr that doesn`t cost 54 euros.
11) Dragon to do a Sexton SPG

some of the non-allied stuff

12) A decent book entirely devoted to the Sd.Kfz. 234/2, including combat history and markings
13) a new-tool MT-LB
14) a new-tool 2S1 Gvozdika
15) a new-tool T-80 UD

That should keep me happy for the coming year

My List

December 12 2011, 10:49 AM 

I love lists! Find them hard to stay away from. So here's mine with a bunch of repeats from other peoples.

A New Bren/Universal carrier, too important not to have a new modern kit.

6pdr/57mm guns, I will need one to go behind my new Universal Carrier

Damiler A/C, just because I want one!

M18 Hellcat, the AFV Club isn't too bad, but it's not very good either

With all the Civilian/staff cars coming out for the dark side modelers, we could use a few on the Allied side, American and British. The Tamiya 48th scale Ford staff car would make a great 1/35th scale kit, and so would a CMP Woody Station wagon with the same front cap. An Austin Sedan based on the Tilly Chassis would be cool too.

And one for the dark side

Italian M11/39 I have the beautiful Brach resin kit, but this has to be my favorite tank that there is not a main stream injection molded kit of! There were rumors last year of a new Italian company doing one, no word on this in almost a year.

I'd take a pile of WWI kits also and a Tamiya FT-17 is a dream I have from time to time!

Cheers,
Rob

Of course, an nicely-done M1A1 (LaFrance) wrecker would also find a place in my stash.

Oh! Now that I think of it, since AFV Club appears willing to outdo Italeri's efforts on a few Allied subjects, how about a real, state-of-the-art, 21st-century standard DUKW kit?

More German Stuff...with a twist!

December 12 2011, 7:25 PM 

Hi,

I am of the believe that it is not possible to have too many German odd-ball, one-offs and limited-use designs. But I would also love to see some of the various modifications that the Germans did on French and English chassis....which obviously would require the there be new issues of French and British vehicles. For instance, I would like to see the conversions the were among "Becker's Funnies" at Normandy...and the French carriers and British light tanks that they were based on.

I also want TREADS. Treads of the proper width for the VK 4501 (Italieri)...the ones used as prototypes and trainers, not just the single version to see combat as done by DML. And I want better tread options for a whole slew of vehicles...Allied and Axis.

When they do maybe every modeller I know will stop getting their plastic from abroad at half the cost of the stupid prices in the UK!
And breathe and relax.....ahhhh find the happy place.....

oh, and some early war Brit armour would be good, c'mon Vulcan how about more variants from your lovely Vickers kit, c'mon, you know you want to.

Re: I wish the rip off importers would realise their prices are ridiculous!!

December 13 2011, 4:40 AM 

Actually, I don't buy nearly so much from abroad as I used to. Maybe three of four kits this year?

It just seems that the bargains in the far east webstores aren't as good as they used to be for me, and when you add on the shipping, it only saves 3 or £4. And for that kind of saving I'd rather toddle down to my local model shop and fondle boxes to decide what I want (plus of course when I import a kit I run teh risk of customs and Royal Mail/Parcelforce slapping on the charges which has made a couple of kits 20% more than UK prices by the time I've got them)


As for the wishlist, some to add

RAM Kangaroo

Re: It's Christmas....and time for our annual Wish List !

Above all, a good M18 Hellcat
Then, some good new tooling M10/Achiles and M36
And once we are at it, a Sherman DD, Sherman Crab, M32 and T1/M31 wouldn't be bad.

I'll add...

December 13 2011, 8:59 AM 

Bronco to release an M19 40mm GMC on the heels of the M24

How about an M37 and M41 as well?

How about a WC-64 KD ambulance to go with a new-tooled WC-54 ambulance?

Since we're including oddball stuff, did anyone mention a Matilda I?

Or a Burma theatre M3 Lee?

Dragon Lee for Roy

December 13 2011, 12:47 PM 

Hey Roy,

Don't you imagine that in order to make the M3 Lee molds pay off we'll see a Lend-Lease Russian kit, a Buete Panzer, a CDL, a Burma Lee, One in British Markings in the desert, and possibly an M31 ARV? Maybe even a cast-hull!!

I'd buy one of each, except for the Buete Panzer!!

Cheers,
Rob

For Tamiya to step up their game

December 13 2011, 4:49 PM 

I like the direction Tamiya have embarked upon in the last few years, making kits of neglected subjects with ease of assembly, not to mention previously unkitted (or poorly kitted subjects that warrant redos...)

Why not continue the early war theme with a new tooled 7TP (hey, I can dream...) and then leap into the T-26 series. Do it in 1/48 first if you like, and then as with the Citroen offer a 1/35 kit. I also would like a Tamiya quality FT-17 even though I have two of the resin NKC kits. A TK/TKS tankette kit would be great as well.

Formations M4A3E2 and M3A1 Lee

December 13 2011, 9:30 PM 

Wish I had bought one or two of each before it was too late. Damn divorce!

A US veteran is someone who, at one point, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including their life.'

The M3A1 will be entering production again hopefully early 2012. The Jumbo set is still up in the air if I will be producing the kit again with the Tasca kit out.

Allied trucks

December 15 2011, 11:29 PM 

CCKW's with short wheelbase, and also banjo axles (which requires an entirely different chassis and transfer case).

USMC International M-5-6 6x6's, short and long wheelbase, prefer open cab.

M5 and M5A1 High Speed Tractors.

Dodge M37 3/4-ton 4x4 (Skybow never released it).

Diamond T 6x6 trucks, especially the wrecker, but also short and long wheelbase cargo.

It would be awesome if Tamiya made M26A1 tractor and M15A1 trailer update kits.

Isuzu Type 94 6x4 in 1/35 scale.

Scammels, especially the wrecker.

Twin 40mm Bofors Naval Mount

December 26 2011, 1:11 PM 

I know it's not the traditional armor that we discuss here every day, but I'd love to see a 1/35 scale shipboard mounting of a twin 40mm Bofors. I saw a 1/35 scratch built version 15-20 years ago in a magazine that was amazing and have longed for one ever since.

I saw a bunch of requests for M29 weasels in styrene. This would be a great kit -- hopefully someone produces one (in styrene) before I get around to making the old Monogram kit. PLEASE!
