There are many that I can think of in just minutes.

The Avro 504K

Roden were planning on releasing a 1/32 Avro 504 either this year or next - however, the situation in ukraine may put a stop to those plans. Their boxtop artist was sadly killed in the conflict.

While I realize a 1/32 T-33 is offered by Special Hobby, the kit is lacking. A new kit with a detailed cockpit, flaps, wheel wells and speed brakes with the option for Lockheed or Canadair versions would be, as Tony the Tiger would say, "Great!". A detailed avionics bay would be nice but not essential. I think such a kit would sell well, despite the available Special Hobby kit, as T-33s  were used globally. Such a kit would also facilitate a new model of an F-80 given the T-33 was simply a stretched F-80 with many components in common.

I can’t say that we’re missing them, but I’m missing the following

 

1. CA 27 Sabre
2. Pilatus PC-6

3. F-111 (C)

4. Vampire, all marks

5. DHC4 Caribou 

6. Pilatus PC- 12 (NGX preferably, so I can “fly” it around the room and satisfy my lotto winning fantasy)

 

Going a little astray, in 1/24th scale I’d love to see a lot of GA aircraft, it’s an area sorely unrepresented ( and obviously “less than profitable” but wouldn’t it be nice to have a big Waco YMF 5 on the shelf, or a Cessna 150??
