    Hello everyone! I am going to me commissioning a model from Bob - he has a pretty big list of what he wants to design! I would like to know what you would be most willing to pay for :) This is not a promise to buy of course but a poll to help me judge where interests may be (and for future ideas)
    Thanks!

    Billy - you posted before I got the poll up ;)

    This is the list I got from Bob so needs to be on the list - however if I get lots of people that chime in and say yeah, I want that then I can go for it as a general request! At least when I have more funding available.

    I vote for this, too. To be honest, there are versions of one sort of another of almost all the aircraft you have listed. No offense intended, but why invest time and money in, say, another B-24 when GPM has a beauty of a kit out there?

    Thinking about the fabulous 1/32 X-15 that was just designed and the soon to come F-84 Thunderflash, I am more than willing to lay out the cash for something that is well detailed and "fresh." We have someone in the Forum who has access to the real Bugatti and in 1/32 or 1/24 scale, the resultant model would be a success.

    However, only you, CGutzmer really knows how successful these models are. If the response to the X-15 warranted the effort and expense, then something like the Bugatti might also, even if it came later than the models listed in the poll.

    Thank you so much for trying to meet the needs of modelers.

    Ki-46, A5M and G8N1, I know, I'm predictable :rolleyes:
    If for any reason any of those planes make it, get in touch with me and I will gladly help with info.
    One condition - scale 1/32 or 1/33 :thumb:

    cdavenport - its the list that Bob gave me to work with... I plan on commissioning many models in the future so I will take alternate suggestions too! Also GPM is not a downloadable model :) Maybe someday they will work with me but so far not a single publisher will work with me in switching even a single model to electronic for test sales :( maybe someday....

    Michael - thanks for the offer - might hit ya up!

    I guess it's too late !....

    Hi i guess it's too late to add the NORTHROP YB-49 FLYING WING to the list, but that would be a really nice one to build and at say 1/72 scale would look pretty gorgeous :thumb:. Regards. Pete :wave:

    Bob seen his site before does planes with props very well. What i would love to see him try do is the Tu 95 Seen lots of people ask for that on here and other hobby forums over the last year. It is screaming out for someone to do a version of. That said on that list I think he would do a good Lancaster bomber. then can twist his arm to try the TU95.:twisted:

    I second the Tu-95 :thumb: Having said that I would now like to nominate the Blohm und Voss Bv-222 Wiking :mrgreen: Both in 1:32 1:33 scale!

    Must admit, I'd like to see a lancaster from 617 squadron, but a detailed Ju-87 would be nice as well., but it's not on the list. Also, only aircraft, why no ships, tanks, space, or any others.

    A detailed Ju-87 would get my money in a second. Especially if it is the JU-87 A, which has never been modeled in 1:33 to my knowledge. Any of the Legion Condor schemes, civil registry or the Eastern front.
    The only well detailed B version is GPM's 1/24 kit, so a detailed B in 1:33 would be just as welcome.

    Avro Canada CF-100, Mk3 or Mk4. Perhaps not the prettiest of all fighters, but historically significant. I'd like to see a nice B-47 as well.
