    Revell is far too busy putting out surveys and then producing the least asked for kits to worry about interesting subjects!

    Airfix is to Britmodeller what Tamiya is to Hyperscale! 
     
    To be honest though, I hang out over on Britmodeller and I am a bit of an Airfixophile...
     
    I like any kit as long as it's a subject I want....I'd even hug a Starfix kit if they made a 1/32 Dornier 17...

    Yes, but in this case for very good reason. Like their Mirage F.1s, the KH Jags suffer from poor research and poor execution (like so many other KH kits, for that matter). My money says the 1/32 kits will be just as bad. I hope I'm wrong.

    Some progress has been made since the last post - I have designed and 3D printed quite a few carrier deck vehicles during the last year and a half.
     
    Among others, I have made two versions of the Tennant deck scrubber (late version shown)...
     

     

     
    ....the new mule A/S32A-49 and the A/S32-31A which has by now been replaced by the A-49.
     

     
    I am currently painting one of the A/S32-31As:

    etendard reacted in Aluminised finish for F-100   
    In fact, I applied two very thin coats of diluted Tamiya X-22 gloss varnish - one prior to decalling, followed by another coat in order to "seal" the decals prior to washing.
     
    From my personal experience, a very thin coat of gloss or semi-gloss clear varnish won't barely affect the "sheen" of the Alclad 2 paints - if at all. Just in case this is what you are dubious about. Exception: Alclad Chrome...
     
    During the 1957-1959 timeframe, Triple Zilch depicted an overall satin finish and only a very moderate degree of heat staining on its bare metal areas. The fuel tanks were bare metal, though.

    Indeed it would be awesome if it was a new tool!  
     
    However, even if it is not, it's still (to me) a much better looking Spit than the fat-nosed Revell new-tool kit.  If they just put recessed panel lines on the fuselage like they did on the wings, it would be the best Spit I/II kit available. If not, an hour with the scriber and you're all set:

    Hmm, given the quality of the plastic in the Italeri 104 and
    Mirage III kits, I'll give it a wait and see. Aside from maybe getting the mythical GR.4 and F.3 versions, the main improvements I'd want over the Revell kits would be detail on the underside of the nose and the sides of the intake, where the blow in doors are completely missing.

    etendard reacted to LSP_K2 in "Wish list" stats (just for fun)   
    OK, folks, just for giggles (and because I'm especially bored), I've finally done what I'd suggested I'd do for quite some time now, and have collated all of the more relevant data from this thread, mostly to satisfy my own curiosity. Unusual and totally bizarre requests for 1:32 C-5 Galaxies and the like, were summarily ignored as being quite useless for this assessment. Not very scientific I'll admit, nothing at all scientific about it in fact, but just done for fun.
     
    The results are really quite interesting, I think. Of the 196 basic types requested, 42 have been kitted in fairly recent years (the last five or so), and that equates to roughly 21% having come to fruition, or are at least currently in definite planning stages, from one manufacturer or another, sometimes multiple manufacturers. I have only included what we might refer to as more mainstream manufacturers, dismissing all resin kit types, as I believe they do not accurately reflect mainstream purchasing desires for the majority of us. (Note: Many of the kits requested on this list, are in all probability never going to see the light of day as mainstream injected kits (strictly my personal opinion), but some are included anyway, just out of consideration of variety. If it were up to me, I'd probably eliminate 70% of these entries from any reasonably serious contention as being entirely too frivolous. I have also, for the most part, eliminated sub, sub variants, as there is a diminishing likelihood of those specific variants being produced, though possible, I guess. Make no mistake, not every kit mentioned has made this list, as many of those were frequently so bizarre as to warrant exclusion. By and large, what remains are kits that were frequently or repeatedly asked for (not only in this thread, but similar threads that have appeared on LSP (and elsewhere) over the years, and continue to arise from time to time).
     
    It quickly becomes fairly evident that manufacturers do pay attention to the pleas from “our kindâ€;… I can conclude nothing else, as chalking these results up to pure coincidence, would also be purely ignoring the evidence.
     
    It's quite possible that I may have missed one (or more) manufactured kits from the list, as I'm not a walking encyclopedia of what has and what has not been produced, but I believe this list to be fairly complete and accurate. Interesting stuff.
