Topic review - New most wanted 1/350 kit(s) poll

I find it interesting that a thread started in 2012 is still alive. I'm also surprised that someone finally got around to my suggestion.

Curt wrote: I would like to see some auxiliaries to go along with the warships, say some AO, AOE and AOR from USN.

I'm not really interested in the options on the list provided. What I would really like to see a USS Sacramento (AOE-1) in 1/350 scale. She was the lead ship of her class of fast combat support ships, launched Sept 1963 and used extensively in the South China Sea during the Vietnam era. This also the ship that lost steering in 1995 while in the Persian Gulf, and collided into the starboard side of the Abraham Lincoln. The ship and two of her sister ships, Seattle (AOE-3) and Detroit (AOE-4), are the largest ships ever built on the West Coast as of 2005. The Sacramento's main engines came from the never-completed battleship Kentucky (BB-66). Sacramento was decommissioned on October 2004, and provided UNREP to all the carriers from the Vietnam War to the Persian Gulf conflicts.

For a 1/350 modeler, this is the perfect compliment to any of the 1/350 carriers and other combat ships through 2004. It would provide the opportunity for those modeling any modern warship to model an UNREP (Underway Replenishment) in a closely-spaced formation in a diorama. Hopefully it would allow assembly in an UNREP configuration as well as simply under way.

Think of it as the perfect accessory!!

Maybe pull Portland class and add Pensacola class cruiser.
We have Indianapolis in 1/350 but no Salt lake City in plastic.

Looks like a few "most wanted" have been provided. I suspect an update to the list is needed.

Thanks for the list.

Trumpeter are about to release 1/350 HMS Kent, County Class cruiser, having released HMS Dorsetshire. They also have other light cruisers/AA cruisers from their future releases. Missing from publicised releases are HMS Nelson and Rodney, and the U.S. cruisers. Patience is a virtue, they say.

Trumpeter already makes Type 23 in 1/350.

I'm definitely necroing this post because a few of these ships are now supposed to be released by trumpeter and still haven't been.. (my votes were Nelson and Renown, but it was a tough decision).

Nelson and Baltimore I'm sure were announced for this year.. And nowhere to be seen.

Really disappointed that Exeter seems to be the only thing released.. For British cruisers the Leander or County classes had many ships with a better variety of histories and aren't limited to a class of two ships that were both sunk. I have huge respect for those who served on the York class cruisers, but it just seems an odd decision to make given the County class had 13 ships that could be potentially made/converted with one kit vs two York class.

Personal opinion/rant (in case I haven't done enough): I don't get why sunk/tragic ships get so much attention. Particularly if they are a part of a class where you can't make them into a variety of other ships with minor modifications. Really annoyed that Ark Royal- a hugely flawed ship, is the only WW2 royal navy carrier available as well.


AAANNNDD hypocrisy incoming (a lot of the ships I want to see aren't easy conversions to a lot of sister ships... But ships that survived to get the more modern modifications are really interesting to me, particularly older ships modernized)

For ships I really want: (HMS) Renown, Nelson, Illustrious, Majestic. (USS) West Virginia, Arkansas, Baltimore, Cleveland, Nevada (all in their most modern appearance)
And if I want to go super ridiculous will never happen- Hood as she would have been had she been modernized. In my opinion the most beautiful concept that ever existed.

I second CV-6 - Enterprise, and raise you Ark Royal (WW2) as well as Indomitable.

I'd like to see Trumpeter take a crack at the Spruance Class destroyer. I have several of the Dragon kits but really love the detail and fit that Trumpeter can bring to the table.

I agree with the above. I also would trade lots of rigging for the 10s of AA gun construction. Bring on the pre/dreadnoughts.

Also, I want one of those ironclads from pre 1890s that have a hilariously over-sized ram upfront, couple of pointless masts, iron hull, open guns, etc. The French built a bunch of them and all look crazy but cool.
