Wishlist for 2023

I totally forgot that Kinetic released a kit for the Navistar Maxxpro MRAP as well. Panda and Bronco also made kits of the Maxxpro, but like you, I’m staying away from anything Panda Models.

Armorama :: Kinetic Model Kits 1:35 MaxxPro MRAP Review

I want really good detailed kits I hope they do them soon

yes it is.

I got that one too and I dread my upcoming battle with it

I actually didn’t find it too bad. check out my build blog on Track Link.

Definitely lack options in 1/35 Panthers and need several all new tool new releases!

  1. Panther D, Monday March 15th 1943 production from MAN at 8:37 am sharp :sunrise_over_mountains:

  2. Panther D, Saturday March 20th 1943 production from MAN at 5:49 pm sharp

  3. Panther D, Monday March 15th 1943 production from MAN at 8:37 am sharp - field applied zimmerit

  4. Panther D, Saturday March 20th 1943 production from MAN at 5:49 pm sharp - field applied zimmerit

/sarcasm off…wink


That’s great to hear I’ll check it out thank you

Looks like Trumpy will finally fulfill a 1/35 wish list item I’ve had for over 3 years with 3 versions of the FAMO!!

Definately a Merkava Namer Achzaka ARV much more accurate than the current HobbyBoss slap-dash offering - so a properly detailed crane for example (the whole point of an ARV?).

To be fair to HobbyBoss, they only had a prototype to wortk with. Maybe if the IDF accepts the Achzaka ARV into service, they’ll update the current kit - or a manufacturer who knows what they’re doing like Meng will produce one.

Anyway, my hope for 2023 is a decent Achzaka ARV kit.

!?16 is too big for me. takes up more room cost too much . !/35th is plenty.

I’ve been waiting for any winterization kits for the M110 series. My old unit had the M110A1 , B Btry 2/83rd 41st Grp.

@Waldorf I suspect a very long wait for the M110 winterization kit as it was not that widely used. It would not be difficult to scratch. The Eduard PE set includes the driver’s windscreen. The canvas covers over the air intakes are easily made from tissue and white glue. The crew heater would not be difficult to scratch with various bits of Evergreen sheet, rod and square tube. The crew lights are available on Shapeways. The crew cover rods are bent from brass rod or Evergreen rod and covered with canvas made from tissue and white glue. The other items of the winterization kit were internal and not visible unless you are opening the engine compartment and battery box.

I purchased the M123 tractor and M172 trailer. They are head and shoulders better than any resin I have ever built. I have the Dragon M60 AVLB and it includes both hulls for the A1 or A2 version hulls. The sole importer is Wanamaker Hobbies outside of Indianapolis.

This guy…1/16 Secret Service Agent in Tactical Gear.

Time for resin figure makers to sculpt a totally modern tactical law enforcement figure with the correct tactical vest, sunglasses, radio, carbine, vest pouches, earpiece, wrist watch, sling, sneakers, baseball cap, etc. Can double as Private Military Contractor.



I bought the AFV M110 about a month ago, and they did it right. Now it’s time to kit the M107 and move onto the M578 wrecker. Still speaking of AFV; how about doing the 81mm and 4.2" mortar tracks with a good zippo to follow. Was really impressed with their M113 ACAV kit.

Something different…

1/16 PMC figures dressed up and armed like in the NETFLIX film, “Extraction 2.” These will be the first three out of the elevator. (There will be an “Extraction 3” film and that is now in the works).

No baseball cap, no headphones, no helmet, no backpack, no rocket launcher, no body armor…just light and fast to extract and get the High Value Target away to safety.



Okay. [ducking] What about this Panther: the Berlin D-B Panther with the F hull and G turret?

You could kitbash it, sure, but it would be nice to have it in a single kit.
