Amen to this one Christian! This was another of my suggestions personally to Ed Sexton.

Almost any full sized car from the 50s & 60s.

As is, we have almost nothing except a lot of Chevies & Fords.

Think of it.

Since the age of the annuals, there are almost no Buicks, Oldsmobiles, Cadillacs, Mercurys, Lincolns, Plymouths, Dodges or Chryslers available in kit form.

As an example, if you wanted to build a modern tool Buick or Mercury, your only choices are the re-popped '62 Electra & '66 Wildcat for Buick, & the '64 & '66 Merc. Nothing new.

Not a single modern kit from the 50s for Pontiac, Buick, Mercury, Lincoln, Dodge & Desoto.

You can count the rest of the makes, barring Chevy & Ford, on one hand.

Steve, I agree with you 100%! The problem I see though is with each passing year, I'm a bit less confident in them doing much more of the '50's cars. Let's face it, we're not as numerous as we used to be (those of us who would remember those finned freeway flyers), and the return investment on making such cars would be less hopeful as each year slips by.

I sure wish though that we could somehow someday see these produced however.................

For the life of me I don't know WHY these gems have been ignored in 1/24 scale from even the European kit makers! :huh:

Here we go again! I'm only allowed to participate in this mental masturbation once a year. It is fun. But, it gets boring if it's done too much.

Here's my wish list.

1.    Jensen Interceptor - I have always lusted after this car since I first saw it on TV in the early ‘70s.  British styling with classic American V-8 power!

2.    Any British car with an V-8 - What can I say…I love them and they are unique!

3.    Monteverdi Hai 450 SS - Swiss-made mid-engine sports car with a Chrysler 426 Hemi.  Only 2 ever made in 1970 with 2 more produced in the 1990’s from spare parts and are considered replicas.  Both are in the official Monteverdi Museum in Basel-Binningen, Switzerland.

4.     Morgan Aero8 - Sexy British bodywork with a BMW V-8.  I love the styling!  Another British car with a V-8!

5.    1972 Ford Torino Sport GT- I know there are NASCAR versions out there, but I would like a stock version with the 351 4-bbl. Cobra Jet.  How about it Revell!

6.    Mid ‘60s Dodge Pickup Truck - They are different from the Ford or Chevy pickups.  A big block V-8 or modern Hemi, lowered suspension, dual exhaust, or with a Power Wagon option!  Tough looking!

7.    Aston Martin DB5 – A new tool, full detail version of this car would be great!  Maybe with the option of the most famous car in the world, 007’s DB5, but that could be a licensing nightmare!

8.    Wayne Carini’s Moal Roadster – The Speedway Special of Chasing Classic Cars TV host built by Steve Moal.

9.    2017 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor – Can be built stock or with the Police Interceptor option.  They are everywhere!

Because they weren't in some stupid Army, or some bloody war.
Had they been, they would be made. In 1/35 scale.

Heller should follow through with the Estafette that was already announced.
Since the recent bust/takeover, there hasn't been a word of it.
