5 model cars or trucks you wish were made.

Recommended Posts

'52-'54 Mercury hardtop - Lindberg/AMT?

'56 Lincoln Premiere 2 dr hardtop - Moebius?

'56 Chevy Bel Air 2 dr hardtop - from Revel's other '56 Chevy's tooling?

'56 Buick or Olds 2 dr hardtop - Moebius?

'57 Desoto Adventurer hardtop - from MT's '57 Chrysler 300's tooling?

'57 Cadillac Coupe de Ville - Moebius?

'57 Studebaker Golden Hawk - AMT, Revell, or Moebius?

'62-'64 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint 1600 Veloce - Tamiya, Hasagawa, or Fujimi - full detail only!

'62 Pontiac Grand Prix - modified reissue from AMT?

'65 Cobra Daytona coupe - Tamiya, Hasagawa, or Fujimi - full detal only!

'65-'66 Corvair Corsa coupe - new tool needed - Revell?

and, a 1/8th scale '28-'29 Ford Model A roadster to cross-kit w/ Revellogram's '32 Ford chassis - plus, some badly needed hot rod pieces that reflect today's building trends; not the way-out-of-date pieces found in even the lastest release of their '32 roadster, except retain the steelies, narrow Firestones, and the flat motor.

oops! - I listed 12 - sorry ;)

Humber Super Snipe...any car named that just has to be cool. Big Brit saloons!

57, 58 Studebaker Golden Hawk + parts to make the Packard Hawk. Looks like a cat fish thrown on the dock, but what the hey...it's cool in my eyes.

55 Ford

40s era Hudson Pick Up

I'm surprised some European company hasn't taken a shot at making any post WWII Rolls-Royces and/or Bentleys; for example a Silver Shadow/Corniche/Camargue series which could share chassis and engine tooling, or an SCII/III instead of yet another reissue of the (ugh) Hubley kit.

1. 1994-2001 dodge ram 3/4- 1 ton, any cab layout, diesel only, preferably 4x4 (this is my daily)

2. 1985-86 mustang, any model either coupe or hatch

3. 2003-04 mustang cobra, preferably coupe, but either coupe or convertible would be sweet

4. 1968-72 datsun 521 pickup, preferably 1970-72 so it uses the L16 1.6L engine, not the J13 1.3L

5. 1955 ford customline 2 dr, much smoother looking than the over-chromed crown victoria
