The coal barge is cool.

In no particular order of preference, my list would be;


1; Anything with cage mast's, preferably the USS Tennesee, they are such beautiful looking ships, there are plenty of post Pearl Harbour models around so its about time we had a pre Pearl Harbour cage mast cutie.

2; HMS Dreadnought, its about time someone did a model of the Battleship that started it all.

3; Rodney/Nelson, well overdue for the 1/350 treatment in plastic and such unique looking ships.

4; A DKM "K" class Light cruiser such as Koln, Nurnberg etc, every other major WW2 DKM ship is covered so why not fill the gap.

5; A WW2 RN Carrier, particularly Ark Royal or Victorious in May '41 fit.

ok, I know I cant list 6 but what the heck, how about HMS Hermes, Falkland War fit, would be fitting as The RN's last proper Carrier.

I'd like to see the following;
1. HMS Norfolk (WW2 Cruiser) circa. Battle of North Cape to go with Scharnhorst
2. HMS Iron Duke (WW1 Battlship)
3. HMS Exeter (post rebuild after river plate action)
4. HMS Victorious (WW2 fleet carrier)
5. HMS Vanguard (Royal Navy's last battleship and most beautiful).
As a footnote could somebody please produce a new and accurate model of a Flower class Corvette in 1:72nd scale has the Matchbox/Revell kit is well past it's sell by date. Having made three of these kits with the David Parkins updates this kit needs to be retired and replaced with an all new production. It would also sell very well providing it's better than it's predicessor.

1. Pre-war Tennessee/Colorado class
2. Dunkerque Class
3. La Galissonnière class
4. Jeanne D'Arc class training/light cruiser (Never happening, I know)
5. Portland class

Edited. Seeing as how Trumpeter is doing a Littorio with the Roma, there's nothing to prevent me from putting the Portland in. I still say the Jeanne D'Arc needs a model in a scale larger then 1/1250 though.
