I put quite a list up in 2016, and very few have appeared.  Let me see:


Avro 504 J/K/N?  Not yet: please, Sir Peter ...

Injection PT-17, and state-of-the-art Tiger Moth?  No, but given ICM's venture into the Bu 131 I'm hopeful - or should that read "foolishly optimistic"?

Avia B.534? No

Injection Siskin?  (I don't know why, I just like this aircraft).  No.

Injection Hart family?  No.

State-of-the-art DH Twin boom family - Vampire and Venom, both single- and two-seaters, and a Sea Vixen if anyone's got room after all the Lancs and B-24s?  No.

DH Chipmunk? No.

[Edit] And I'll add a Supermarine Swift to that little lot.


I don't think I'm particularly greedy, just one of these and I'd  be a happy bunny.

Well here we go again, as my main interest is RAF and FAA subjects of ww2 my list is pretty predictable, but their release would open my wallet

Fairey Fulmar

Fairey Barracuda

Fairey Battle

Blackburn Skua.

Westland Lysander (modern tooling)

Bristol Blenheim

Gloster  E28/39

Gloster Meteor FIII

Supermarine Seafires (Merlin)

Plus more wallet openers


Curtis Helldiver SB2C (injection moulded)

Douglas A20 Boston/Havoc

Vultee Vengeance

Douglas Devastator


Petlyakov Pe-2

Lavochkin La 5/7 (injection)


Plus the neglected early WW2 subjects

Fokker DXXI (Injection)

Not altogether un-coincidentally I suppose, many of the 1:32 aircraft kits that I've been begging for over the years, have already been or (supposedly) soon will be released; Fokker D.VII, Mirage 2000, P-51B/C, F-84F, Westland Whirlwind, Ki-45, Hs 129, etc, etc, so here's my current list  (preferably injection kits from a competent manufacturer):


Saab Viggen

F-101B Voodoo

F-102A Delta Dagger

F9F-5 Panther

F6F-3 Hellcat

After the reaction to the Lancaster, you would have to be a brave soul to send a list to Neil at HKM. I know what I'd say.


Not sure what reaction you are meaning but I think the fact he's sold the entire first production run with the clear fuselage parts would be the best and only reaction he would be concerned with?

Interested mainly on RAF, VVS, Regia Aeronautica and IJN/IJA subject... so:


- Reggiane fighters (2000, 2001, 2002, 2005)

- Macchi fighters (200, 202, 205)

- SM79 Sparviero

- Rufe, Rex, Seiran, Kate, Tenzan, Saiun, Gekko, Ki100 and a new Ki-43

- Yak and LaGG fighters

- Petlyakov Pe2

- Defiant, Fulmar, Skua, Firefly, Lysander and floatplane Spitfire


These are almost all aircrafts with an operational history and interesting subject. Many of these had common parts (e.g. what's the problem with a Spitfire floatplane in 1/32???)


Some exotic italian plane like IMAM Ro57, Breda Ba88 and Fiat CR25 would be a dream...
