Hi Andrew, I'm PMing your original response to you for reference, but your original post was NOT helpful.

We are looking for specifics, not "ANY." We need tallies, not vague desires. I'm a USN fan too, so I'm not ragging on you, we just need results that Rob can actually tally and present to Dragon.

1) Atlanta class
2)Brooklyn/St louis class
3) 4 piper variants (DD, APD, DMS, DML, you get the picture)
4) HMS Ark Royal, the WW 2 carrier
5)Northampton class (and most of the fittings could result in an easy Indy and Portland model)

That is in keeping with your restrictions; Hoever, Dragon in its armor and aircraft have never been shy about going against the competition: Academy M7, Tasca DV sherman II, MPM A-20, etc. A Fletcher plays right into their economical use of moldings (make an M2 105mm; take 2 of the sprues and most of the M3 HT sprues and make an M19; take the early M4 hull and suspention and the M2 105 and some other bits from the bin, some new parts and you have the M7) They can use lots of the Benson/livermore stuff AND better still create an enourmous variety of rigs and fittings.

1. S-boat early WWII USN submarine
2. USS Wasp CV-7
3. Sumner class destroyer
4. USN sub-chaser

The S-boat would be a great addition as they "held-the-line" early in the war. Their crews had to have incredible courage just to dive those boats let alone engage the enemy.

Hi Rick,

I see you prefer 1/700 scale, but your vote, if counted for 1/350 scale, would suit me just fine!

Cheers,

Hugh Williams

My List:

1 - 1/350 Essex-class aircraft carrier (angled deck)
2 - 1/350 Forrestal-class aircraft carrier (preferably Vietnam War era)
3 - 1/350 Midway-class aircraft carrier (both axial deck and angled deck versions)
4 - 1/350 Kitty Hawk or Constellation or America or John F Kennedy aircraft carrier
5 - 1/350 Iwo Jima LPH helicopter assault ship

It doesn't hurt to ask!

HMS Eagle (60s or 70s) being a distant second.

1) HMS Dreadnought - had to argue with a more historically important ship - especially one that never fired its guns in anger (running over a U-boat in the channel doesn't count)

2) USS Olympia - I'd love to see some promotional benefit for preserving Deweys Flagship before it is lost due to bureaucratic stupidity - besides Hasegawas Mikasa needs some ships next to it in displays the world over

3) Flush Decker DDs - Hey as a series they can probably do 5-10 boxings - but does the Mirage kits cause this to fall into the 'already existing' catagory - even if 1/400th

4) A Grand Fleet Battle Crusier.....lets see, oh well, HMS Invincible - Falkland Islands and Jutland (besides maybe get a Scharnhorst eventually - 1914 style)

5) HMS Exeter - though I figure Tamiya or Hasegawa doing this as they seem to like Allied subjects that the IJN sank, but I doubt they'd do it in 350th

Matt

Hi, well my list is somewhat unusual in that I would like to see the following in 1/350 in plastic ,A VICTORY SHIP , as well as the aforementioned ANDREA DORIA ,the CARGO LINER STOCKHOLM as well as a good rendition of these three, A VLCC, a LNG TANKER and a self unloading CONTAINER SHIP . These are all lacking on the marketplace to those of us that prefer plastic. tankerbuilder

All:

My previous entry included only three requests, so I will add two more now to reach my quota of five:

HMS Exeter 1942 fit (i.e., as sunk)--the only known plans for this fit have been drawn by and are available from Alan Raven.
HMS Kenya or other early war fit Colony class cruiser (WWII)

Thanks!

Mike E.

Support Ships! There's tons of front-line combatants out there, but close to a zero-balance when it comes to the ships that supported the fleets.

1. WWII Repair Ships - USS Ajax (AR-6)
2. Any WWII Oiler (AO)
3. Fleet /Harbor Tugboats
4. Any of the WWII Pacific Ships that landed troops in the Island Campaigns.

5. Waaay off the Wall & Dream City- Jules Verne's / Disney's 20,000 LBtS Nautilus.

It would also be great to see Dragon release a complete set of their 1/350 USN naval figures.

Only 5 choices? man, that's hard. But ok, here I go -won't bore you with my reasons, as a lot of you have voted for the same choices and explained in far better detail why. I will add only that these make good investment sense, since they are mainstream and more derivative subjects could be made later:

1. HMS Rodney (1941)

2. HMS Ajax (1939)

3. HMS Illustrious (R87, 1940)

4. HMS Ark Royal (1940-1941)

5. USS Texas (prefer her post Pearl Harbor config. but any really)

Now, can someone tell me how many times I can vote? :heh:

I've already cast my five "official" votes, but I just wanted to add my voice to the chorus in favor of the Iraqi coal barge.
