I have voted for the Tegethoff class and Nelson. Viribus Unitis or one of her sisters would be great.

Greetings from Germany

South Korean KDX-III in 1/350. It's the ultimate version of the American DDG-51 Flight IIAs. Why not?

I would LOVE to see the Langley in plastic. Historically, it's a very important ship, and all that girder work would be lots of fun in etch (I just can't do $400 for a resin kit).

inter war and WWII RN Aircraft carriers please! :-)

Primarily Illustrious class-4 variants to build, with lots of potential.

RN Aircraft carriers are sorely missed in 1/350

I think Tamiya-san should do a Yamato quality model of the Nelson class.

Tamiya has a history of doing models of slightly odd or hybrid designs, and as a Washington treaty "ugly" the Nelson class fits the quirkiness bill perfectly.

As the polls here (and the one done a little while ago regarding wished for Dragon releases) show there is a lot of demand for such a model. Also resin examples of the Nelson are as rare and expensive as hen's teeth.

I sure hope one of the quality mfgs (Tamiya or Dragon) sink their teeth into this.

Simon.

How about a 1/200 or 1/144 DE to go with Revell's big Fletcher.

For myself, I'd love to see a 1/350 modernization package for US Navy vessels - especially Tamiya's Enterprise CVN65 and Trumpeter's Nimitz. Things like the most modern weapons and most especially all those zillions of domes for radar and satnav, with associated sponsons/mounts. Also, a UH-1N in 1/350 plastic - they're still in use to this day yet all the only utility helos in plastic are every possible iteration of Blackhawk/Seahawk and the old Sea King.

USS Texas (BB-35) is at the top of my list. One of the most historic naval vessels in the world, and the real ship is sitting there near Houston just waiting for some enterprising plastic manufacturer to measure and photograph her. And if officials can't decide how to repair and preserve her, she may not be there much longer.

I want to see the WWII HMS Ark Royal carrier and the HMS Rodney. Both involved in the Bismarck chase.

I agree that I a 1:350 USS Texas/New York would be really nice.

Then, of course, there's the Pennsylvania, which I'd also love to see....(there's enough Arizona's out there already...could it really be that difficult??)

Then, afterwards...a 1:200 SoDak!

Hello,

I voted Nelson class only, because I want to have it as plastic kit in 1/350 very much.

Beside this all I want to have is at best (if at all available) as expensive resin kit and are not named above. These are particularly many German WW-1 ships (beside that existing as i.e. from ICM, there are much more!) and also all these missing "US Dreadnought - Sisters" of the USS Arizona as for example Nevada, Oklahoma, West Virginia, New Mexico, New York, Texas and so (and here more wanted in Pre - Pearl Harbour shape" as after rebuilding etc.)...

There is so many which is partially available since decades in 1/700 (for example Nelson class from Tamiya) and still missing in 1/350 ... as for sure are these and that 1/350 ships which otherwise is a long time wanted ship in 1/700.

Cheers,
Christian

I would echo the above wholeheartedly. The ship I'd really love to see in this scale though is Royal Oak.

Why isn't there a newly-tooled 1/350 Fletcher-class (preferably by Dragon) on the list? :wave_1:
