RN ships if one sees that Tamiya produced Hammann destroyer which was sunk at Midway, and some other subjects, both Hermes, Dorsetshire, Cornwall, Canberra, Exeter, Perth should be in Nipponese plans. At least the Heavy cruisers surprises me that no one of the big four has presented yet.

So....

I know that we now have an IJN Shiratsuyu-class DD (several of them).

What other ships on this list have been made since the poll was begun?

Personally, I would like to see Brooklyn, St. Louis, and Northampton-class cruisers (hell, ALL Cruisers, USN, RN, RNZN, RAN, etc. not just USN and IJN, which seems to be the preference of the manufacturers, considering their primary market)

Of course, for me this works, since I am personally most interested in '42 - '43 Pacific War, when the IJN still sort-of had a fighting chance (had they been a little smarter).

OH! And how about a Pensacola-class Cruiser, which is hard to get even in Resin.

I second what MatthewB said. I'd also add transports and auxiliaries, for IJN and USN for that timeframe.

I would love to see a full hull version of KGV. Does anyone have any ideas how I can modify an existing lower half from another kit into KGV lower half? Until someone makes a kit for KGV I am not sure what to do actually. The WL series from Tamiya are just not cutting it if they dont include the FH.

Flyhawk has announced KGV class kits - first up will be Prince of Wales, if I recall correctly. They usually offer their models with a full hull option. Just wait a little longer and you'll get your wish.

Prince of Wales - kit number 1117
Duke of York - kit number 1118

It's maybe a somewhat cheap way to do it, but Nichimo 30cm series included KGV. You may use the lower hull which is a sepparate part. For KGV's 210m WL length, these are at 1/700...

Just an old thread but did we ever get a county class cruiser in 1/700 or remains unattainable?

[quote="des_sniper"]I really wish a company would produce some of the Regia Marina kits in plastic. The Italian navy of WWII is truly a ghost fleet when it comes to modeling. Other than some resin kits that come out of Italy, there are no kits out there.
I know it is a farcry, but there may be some hope. Italy did have some beautiful ships that were build before and during the war.

Other than that, my wish list is (in no particular order)

RN Roma,
USS Enterprise CVN-65, modern
USS Midway CV-41 as built.
USS Midway CV-41 Gulfwar
Tennesse class rebuilt.
USS Wasp CV-7 WWII
USS Ranger CV-4 any
Any and all Royal Navy aircraft carriers WWII
Any modern US carrier in 1/700 (reasonably priced) $50.00 and under.[/quote]
