What I would like to see from mfgs

I did this as a new message, 'cause some of these planes would be too
big for 1/32 (though I DO like 1/32).
I like to build more civil aircraft. Since several mfgs are now doing
some airliner versions of German aircraft, how about more US aircraft
from golden age? We could do with a modern kit of the Boeing 247, the
Boeing Monomail, the Northrup Gamma, Stinson Trimotor, a GOOD Ford
Trimotor, a GOOD Curtiss Condor, A Lockheed Lodestar, etc.
Also, is there a Fokker trimotor, or is that something a mfg needs to
do?

I'd like a mid 40's dodge power wagon in 1/24 or 1/25th. Fat chance.

  Nice choices all. Add to that a good Beech 18/C45 in 48th scale. Toss in a good DeHavilland Dragon Rapide - that's probably not too big for 1/32. I'd love to see more of the Golden Age civilian planes, too. It's a relatively untapped area. BobbyG

I'd get a Boeing Monomail in a heartbeat; I've been banging that drum for a while now. That and the Salmson 2A2. But we apparently need more Me109's and P-51's ....not enough of them yet! Sheesh.
Italeri just released a Lodestar with BOAC markings, didn't they? Only a matter of time before a)Italeri releases more markings and/or b) aftermarket catches on....
You don't care for William's Brothers Northrop Gamma or their Boeing 247? Granted, they're long in the tooth, but still excellent kits.
While talking about this civil stuff, there's also the Fokker Trimotor that could be done better than's Frog's.

I'd like to see everything in the Piper, Cessna, and Beechcraft lines in 1/32. In particular, a Cessna 195.
And maybe a couple of the more exotic home builts - like the BD-10, or Hamilton HX-321...with options to build them uniquely like you would with an actual home built aircraft.

Another vote for the Dragon Rapide, and a Hornet Moth. Both would be even better in 1/24. Maybe a 1/32 DH88 Comet too.

Maybe since 21st Century is introducing such things as a 1:18 F-4 Phantom this fall, I don't think size of a particular aircraft is a factor anymore for a subject being modeled in either 1:32 or 1:18. Who knows, if enough people ask we just might see some of those mentioned. My dad was always of the opinion that if it didn't shoot or drop bombs it wasn't likely to get the attention of the manufacturers. I'd like to see some of the airliners Aurora use to produce get re-released again so I don't have to melt a credit card and give first option on a yet unborn male child to get one. A new DC-9-30 in 1:48 or 1:32 would be sweet.

Frog did a 1/72 Fokker F.VII "Southern Cross" which was reissued by Novo. I suspect the molds are still kicking around someplace.

I'm long campaigned for a Lockeed Orion (the '30's version) in 48th. Only Noix made one in resin and they're practically impossible to find. I'd go along with a Rapide, the Cessna 195 (one of my favorites too), the DH-88, although Marsh Models in England has done one in resin (very expensive) and now OOP I think. A Lockeed Sirus would be nice too. While on the topic of '30-40's A/C I talked with the owner of Yellow Wing decals at nationals in KC this summer and asked about the possiblility of a variety of decals for the Czech Model A-8 and A-12 Shrikes. He said that would be a good thing to do since there are a lot of possibilities for those kits. I still have my fingers crossed. Ol '45

Yeah, a -61 would be nice. So would a Mosquito & a Bf-110. And maybe even a Do-335.
They seem to be missing a Hurricane & Wildcat in the mix as well. I've seen an announcement regarding a Hellcat to come.
But they have actually ANNOUNCED a B-25. 45" wingspan, 36" overall length. Wheeeeeeeeee!

The A-6 is supposed to be coming from Trumpeter this year...I'm hoping for an EA-6B to follow.

Dang...I may have to get one of those...
I thought they had done O'Hare's Wildcat at one time, though?
