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.

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

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.

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!!

An AO-22 Cimarron class Fleet tanker, they served from the start of WWII all the way thru Vietnam ... Doolittle Raid, Coral Sea, Midway, the naval battles around Guadalcanal

And a Brooklyn class Light Cruiser..... USS Nashville comes to mind, Doolittle Raid, Midway, Leyte Gulf, (as Macarthur's flagship)

The two biggest holes in the US Naval lineup...

Well,

Since the Dragon 1/700 scale USS Enterprise CVAN-65 never appeared, that is a ship kit that should rise to the top!
