Viribus Unitis battleship is very nice! WWI battleship with triple turrets. If Trumpeter or Hobby boss would ever produce it, I would definitely be happy.

Hms Exeter heavy cruiser. Lovely rigged funnels, very 1920's-like Hood's. A Leander-class light cruiser. Treaty-cruisers. Britain had more-cruisers than any other nation in WW2-she relied on them to protect her commerce fleet, so also needed many of them, yet are only represented-in injected plastic; by Trumpeter's Belfast.

I picked Leander and Cleveland, but what I really want is a FRAM (obviously!), Amazon class frigate and any WW II RN Destroyers.

I'm a predreadnought lover, so I'd dearly love to see in 1/350 or 1/700 in plastic (I'd like 1/200 but the others are unlikely enough already)

France: Massena, Carnot, Charles Martel, Jaureguiberry
Russian: Peresvet, Poltava, Imperator Nikolai I
US: USS Texas, Massachusetts (BB2),

I agree with the above. I also would trade lots of rigging for the 10s of AA gun construction. Bring on the pre/dreadnoughts.

Also, I want one of those ironclads from pre 1890s that have a hilariously over-sized ram upfront, couple of pointless masts, iron hull, open guns, etc. The French built a bunch of them and all look crazy but cool.

Showcase Models, Australia, are doing HMS/HMAS Vendetta in 1/350 plastic. Obtainable from HobbyEasy HK at present.

I'd like to see Trumpeter take a crack at the Spruance Class destroyer. I have several of the Dragon kits but really love the detail and fit that Trumpeter can bring to the table.

I second CV-6 - Enterprise, and raise you Ark Royal (WW2) as well as Indomitable.

I'm definitely necroing this post because a few of these ships are now supposed to be released by trumpeter and still haven't been.. (my votes were Nelson and Renown, but it was a tough decision).

Nelson and Baltimore I'm sure were announced for this year.. And nowhere to be seen.

Really disappointed that Exeter seems to be the only thing released.. For British cruisers the Leander or County classes had many ships with a better variety of histories and aren't limited to a class of two ships that were both sunk. I have huge respect for those who served on the York class cruisers, but it just seems an odd decision to make given the County class had 13 ships that could be potentially made/converted with one kit vs two York class.

Personal opinion/rant (in case I haven't done enough): I don't get why sunk/tragic ships get so much attention. Particularly if they are a part of a class where you can't make them into a variety of other ships with minor modifications. Really annoyed that Ark Royal- a hugely flawed ship, is the only WW2 royal navy carrier available as well.


AAANNNDD hypocrisy incoming (a lot of the ships I want to see aren't easy conversions to a lot of sister ships... But ships that survived to get the more modern modifications are really interesting to me, particularly older ships modernized)

For ships I really want: (HMS) Renown, Nelson, Illustrious, Majestic. (USS) West Virginia, Arkansas, Baltimore, Cleveland, Nevada (all in their most modern appearance)
And if I want to go super ridiculous will never happen- Hood as she would have been had she been modernized. In my opinion the most beautiful concept that ever existed.

A kit of HMS Queen Elizabeth ( Aircraft Carrier) would be nice and a Type 23 or Type 42 .
Just a thought

Trumpeter already makes Type 23 in 1/350.

Trumpeter are about to release 1/350 HMS Kent, County Class cruiser, having released HMS Dorsetshire. They also have other light cruisers/AA cruisers from their future releases. Missing from publicised releases are HMS Nelson and Rodney, and the U.S. cruisers. Patience is a virtue, they say.
