What kits are you surprised do NOT exist in plastic

It is very common to hear about a new release and hear many people say on line, "I never thought I would see that in plastic." This is a food for thought question

But what if we flip that around? What kits are you surprised to not exist -- not because you want them but because it would be easy to produce.

For example:

Many companies produce a Hetzer I am surprised none of them have produced a berge-hetzer. ( i know a new company, Thunder, has announced one but it is not out yet. )

Many companies have a Pz III but none do the berge version

Many companies have a Panther kit but only italeri has produced the berge Panther.

Many companies have a Sherman but none have done a Sherman DD or a skink. The DD sherman was not the common but so much has been written about it; it has mind share far past its numbers. The Skink was produced in very small numbers but it is very interesting.


What examples come to your mind?

Thanks
David
