No company, large or small, ever became successful by forcing an unwanted product down the throats of their customers.


Very true, but I dont think the model company's are forcing anything down anyones throats

A little clarification may be needed here: I assume Erik's point is that the 3.8 Series 1 was an inline 6, not a V6.


Yep a typo. I meant I6. not V6. I also forgot to add the ZL1 Camaro. I do think an F12 will come, but not sure on the FF. Maisto is doing an FF diecast, but in a radio control version. Not sure what that will be like. That is all I've heard for sure.

I don't know if many of you saw Fujimi is doing a McLaren MP4 race version:

Likely a curbside like their others.

I agree, I'm sure every new tool is well researched. It may not be what you wanted, but others do.

I would absolutely KILL for newer pickups (Mainly the 05 and up Dodge rams) maybe not with all the different options, but at least a diesel!

Not only that, some newer VW models would be cool too. I know a ton of VW entusiast that would lvoe to have a model fo their show cars and daily rides. Mk3 Jettas and golfs, Mk4's, mk5's, etc.

If the kit manufacturers follow the 1:1 marketplace for potential successes, I wonder why there isn't a more recent Ford F-series pickup. It's been the best-selling vehicle of any type in America for many years, and the latest kit I can find is a 1997 F-150 in different versions. The Chevy Silverado is #2.

I would be happy with some promo version of some new pickups

Yes, and the newest Silverado kit is the Revell '99...even worse is Dodge--the only kits out there are long out of production '93-95 vintage. I'd love to see some current trucks kitted, like the Ford Raptor or the current Ram. Some current SUVs also would be great.

Shakespeare said it many years ago. First thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers!

:lol:


How about we kill the plaintiffs first! A lawyer without a plaintiff is like a gun with no bullets!
