Choose 2. Hopefully some manufacturers pick up on this!

It will be much better if the pos is separated on “plastic” and “resin” kits (one resin manufacturer say)

I chose County Class Cruiser and Illustrious Class Aircraft Carrier.
I think Town (also known as Southampton) Class cruiser would be great as well!
Plastic only please.

I didn't pick any. I want a 1/350 Enterprise, CV-6, and a Long Beach.

I voted for the first two options. Renown and a Revenge class... And a Dido class would be a most welcome subject... So many Royal Navy choices...

It's about time Trumpeter did Admiral Scheer & a 1/350 of their 1/700 Renown!

I second Carr on the CV-6. If any of the manufacturers are listening, give us a U.S.S. Enterprise, CV-6, injection molded kit, 1/350 or bigger! If you build it, we will come!

I too would agree to a new tool CV-6. As a side note, I heard somewhere that Trumpeter could be doing a retooled Iowa class.

drdoom, can you edit the poll so that the CV-6 Enterprise is an option? I think it would be a good option that would get a fair number of votes...

I voted for Nelson and Conte di Cavour, but would gladly get:
BBs:
WW2: Nelson, R-class, Cavour, Ganguts in WW2 fit
WW1: Iron Duke, Bayern, Nassau
Pre-Dread: Warrior, Inflexible, Piotr Velikiy, pre-dread R-class, Formidable, Canopus, the japanese ones.. any in fact

Cruisers:
Any british, italian or soviet WW2
Any WW1
Any pre-dread - Rossiya and Bayan/Adm Makarov are my favourites, but any Asamoids and Elswicks would be great!

Destroyers:
Any 1880 to 1918 era.

Cargo ships and liners - any pre-ww2 ones.

Can we have a list of 1/700 choices please as i rarely build outside of that scale. There are more choices available in 700 it's true, but there are still huge gaps to be filled. Hermes! WW1 BC's! :smallsmile:

[quote="PetrOs"].... Ganguts in WW2 fit


They are coming apparently, according to the Zvezda source.

Would be nice to see Krasny Krym, Krasny Kavkas, Baku, Tashkent, Kirov of WW2,
Imperatices Mariya and Yekaterina, Alexander III, Izmail
Poltawa class, Rossiya, Cesarevich, Nicolas I
Sverdlov cruiser also.

In 1/350.

Ganguts are coming in WW1, not WW2 fit, as I understood Zvezda

Sevastopol 1914 will be the first of 8 of the class, wich will include WW2 versions to follow. Hopefully it won't be like 1 battleship a year. I wish we won't have to wait another 8 years to see October revolution in 1/350!

In 1/700 scale (plastic) :-

Aquila CV
Gorizia (c 1942) CA
Abruzzi/Garibaldi CLs
Attilio Rogolo CL
Cavour BB
Andrea Doria BB
Soldati class DDs

and, for good measure, Dunkerque and any French DDs.

Mermaid, I hope that's true. I would love a WWII Sevastapol with that weird funnel and superstructure!

I believe WWII Ganguts are coming out as well. Zvezda mentioned it. Anyway the reason this poll is only 1/350 is because of perhaps selfish reasons. I'm not afraid to work with resin in 1/700 scale so I know that almost everything has been made (save a correct enterprise) if you'd like to make a 1/700 poll please do, but you're limited to only 20 ships per poll which stinks!

There is no decent 1/700 Ganguts either, I believe. "October Revolution" by Kombrig is the only one?

Anyway, now they are coming. Hopefully they'll receive the same quality aftermarket as did other latest Zvezda models.

I'd also like to put Agincourt and Reshadie (Erin) in 1/350 as a choice to consider. I'd buy them in plastic.

County and Leander class cruisers scored my vote though the Italian BB's would be nice to see as well.
