Hey all, here's what I'd love to see...

- An Austin Healey 3000 (not Frogeye) at some point. (1:8 scale)
- Knightrider KITT (I know Altaya is testing it, I want it lol) 1:8 scale
- Airwolf 1:8 scale
- Lonestar's Winnebago from Spaceballs at 1:8 scale
- The red Plymouth Fury from Stephen King's Christine at 1:8 scale,
- 1967 Chevrolet Impala at 1:8 scale,
- 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air at 1:8 scale,
- 1955 Ford Thunderbird at 1:8 scale,
- The Batmobile from Michael Keaton's Batman movie at 1:8 scale,
- A Tesla Model S (facelift) at 1:8 scale,
- A Lancia Aurelia Spider B24 at 1:8 scale,
- Ford Lincoln Futura concept car at 1:8 scale in Seafoam green

I could go on all day, but I'll leave those for now

I too want that Atalya KITT (alternate parts to make it KARR would be even better).

Would LOVE an AirWolf, but 1:8 would make it bigger than I am. Perhaps 1:18?

Not diverse enough, more F1, Rally cars, WEC cars and Moto GP bikes rather than old boring historic cars. Also something like a Red Arrows Hawk at say 1/12 or 1/18

The reason people make “Classic” car models is because they were unique, timeless and highly memorable. Few people buy “boring” F1 cars that change every year and would be obsolete before someone even finished building it. No one ever says “check out that 1971 F1 car, everyone knows the 1971 Lotus was famous because ...... of the driver and nothing to do with the car whatsoever

I'm afraid I pretty much agree.
It's the modern cars that are boring. They all look virtually the same.
Classic cars are exactly as the name says - classic.

If you want F1 cars, then yes, but classics again.
The Ferrari Sharknose, Lotus 49 etc...
Cars of those era's all looked totally different.
F1 cars today are virtually identical apart from the colour scheme.

As a small case in point, I've attached some pics of a Revell F1 Ferrari that I changed into a Renault Lotus with a few simple mods and making my own decals...

I have to agree with that.
The "classic" F1 cars give opportunity for so much more detailing.
Mclaren from the 70's vs MP4/31 from 2016

Yeah, nobody is right or wrong on which is the best genre Alan, and not knocking anyone who enjoys building ships/boats. As I say, each to their own and we are all perfectly entitled to enjoy whatever we like the most. Personally I feel the same as you, at the end of the day I just love modelling and it's just nice to see ANY kind of model being built regardless of genre. I do admire the skill of some of you ship modellers especially some of those on this forum of which I do comment from time to time. Well done to all and keep on enjoying your own favourite genre.

Actually, though I'm not a ship modeller, and will never be very keen on it, I'll tell you a little secret provided you keep it to yourself Alan - I've always wanted to build a model of the USS Hornet that launched the first raid on Japan and have all of those B-25s lined up on deck!

Who knows ... maybe one day! BigGrin

Nice to get people talking and participating on the forum again. ThumpUp

Thanks for that Alan, looks a very nice kit, did cough at the price though but who knows, maybe I will one day! ThumpUp

@ Jase - you may be right mate, though methinks it would take a major epiphany for that to happen! Blink
