    Oh! I think you might have started something here Robert!
    Some nice choices on your list. One I noticed, the Accurate Miniatures Mitchell - change it to the Italeri kit; it's the same kit, but cheaper, AND it's got all the extra ordnance that was previously supplied separately! Beautiful model!
    I'll have a think about my list, as there are so many! There are also some I wish would be produced.
    Oh! If we all had the money, and the space!
    Could be a good thread this!

    I saw the Italeri kit, but that's 20 bucks more than what AM is asking for o_O

    Right now, I want:

    Hasegawa/Revell 1/32 Fw 190D-9
    Revell 1/32 Ju 88

    My list isn't really long, as I just kinda go along buying kits I like. Plus I don't want to get too far of myself as I have a bunch waiting to be built.

    I have way too many boxed and unbuilt models as it is but if there was one I'm dying to have it would be a Fw 190D or Ta 152 in 1/48. Only model I don't have. Anybody want to trade! :):):):)

    Hmm, I could get carried away here... :lol:

    Airfix 1/48th Canberras - B (I) 8 and B2/B20/B65/B(I)6 - I have seen the B (I) 8 in several places and been very sorely tempted. I built a 1/72nd Matchbox Canberra as a kid and it was one of my favourites.

    All of Roden's 1/48 WWI planes 8) BTW, have any of you chaps built one of these? I seen mixed reviews at modelingmadness.com and elsewhere.

    Airfix 1/48th Lightning - the recent flurry of EE building round here has obviously set me off!!!

    A 1/48th Dauntless - my dad built the Matchbox (?) 1/32nd edition when I was a kid, I remember it being HUGE 8)

    Airfix 1/72nd Mosquito Mk. XIX/ J.30 - so I can build the Swedish one. Also the BMk XVI/ PR XVI for the US photo-recon bird on the box art.

    Tamiya 1/48th Spit Mk I - to go with the Airfix Hurri Mk I I am building at the moment.

    Finally... any one know of a good Sea Venom? I recall my dad building a 1/32nd one about the same time as the Dauntless, think it was a Matchbox one. Only one I can find now is Revell 1/32nd scale, is it any good?

    BT, the Revell Sea Venom is the Matchbox kit. It has good reviews; as long as you bear in mind the technology of the era it was first produced. It should build, and look, fine, but Matchbox parts at the time had a sort of 'chunky' look to them.
    I believe there are a series of Venoms/Vampires, including the Sea Venom/Venom NF, in 1/48th from ?? Pooh! Can't remember the name, but they advertise in all the mags! It's someone like Accurate Miniatures, I think!
    As for existing kits, I could run up a list, of the top of my head, that would easily reach £1,000+, and that's not countingthose i haven't seen, or those I would like to see!
    I recently saw the Hyper Scale review for the Revell 1/72nd scale Lanc., and , even though I don't normally do that scale, I think it's a must.

    Having started that 1/72nd Dornier for the GB, and now working on a 1/48th Hurri, I do prefer the larger scale as it's less fiddly. There are some good subjects out there in 1/72nd though, and I'm a bit space restricted (aren't we all? :lol: ), so I want to build any bombers it will be braille scale for me, realistically.

    Cheers for the info on the Sea Venom Terry, I don't really recall what it was like (I must have been younger than ten at the time), but for 12-15 quid, I think I might have to order one, and space restrictions be damned!!! :twisted:

    Thanks Lucky, they will have to be strictly 'look, don't touch' for now though :lol:

    On a brighter note, I've decided to tick one item off my list and order a Revell Sea Venom :oops: 8)
