    Mid-East Armor

    Isreali and Egyptian armor in 1:25.
    IDF had lots of interesting subjects off of the Sherman - M50 and M51 plus some SPG variants. The Brit. Centurian Mk3 & 5. Ti-67 - T-54/55's converted to Isreali use.
    The Egyptians and their use of the T-34/54/55 and the SPG variants they did off of these vehicles.
    The M-3 halftrack was also used as well as later on vaiants of the M-113 APC.

    Why certainly, find me some cheap accurate plans and off I go. Until then it's just a pipe dream. There are many things I'd love to design (and believe me, a Colony class is VERY high on that list) but a lack of accurate plans are a major obstacle to many of them. I go to the usual free plans sites and whatever catches my fancy is what I design. Except for my devotion to the monitors of course. :mrgreen:

    So, if I were to provide you with accurate technical drawings of a ship, you would then produce a free set of paper model plans?

    Can't guarantee free, depends on the complexity of the ship (but if you provide plans you'd certainly get a free copy!) but essentially yes. But before I promise anything I'd like to know what you have in mind, my interests are very broad so the odds are quite good, and I wouldn't be one to pass up free info but I am not very good with promises so I won't make any. Let me know what you have in mind and we can probably work it out. :)

    If you'd like to see one of my designs, check out the Passaic thread, I'll have some pics up tonight, just ignore the poor quality of the build, I design much better than I can build :cry: wall1

    Hello from OZ,

    I would like to contribute my "two pennies worth", although I'm guessing quite a few of my suggestions would only be of interest to myself, but anyway here goes --

    Ships wise, my interest is essentially Allied Light Coastal Forces but it does extend to other warship types.

    Fairmile 'D' type MGB, MTB and LRRC.
    British Power Boat Company MGBs, MTBs and the early war MA/SBs.
    Any of the many and varied ASRLs.
    US Coast Guard vessels, PGM gunboats and other 'patrol' type craft not already available.
    The WW1 Coastal Motor boats, both 40' and 55' versions, the forerunner to the MTB. (I'm working on the Elco built RN WW1 ML).
    Minesweepers and any other small 'escort' type ships like the RNs "Kingfisher" class. This could include the "Roundtable" class plus the numerous types of armed trawlers from both world wars.
    I also like the small escort aircraft carriers like the USS Bogue and HMS Audacity. Another type was the 'Merchant Aircraft Carrier' I believe. I must admit I don't know very much about these ships. I tried to purchase a 1/350 scale escort aircraft carrier from an on-line retailer and eventually had to get a refund through paypal which was quite disappointing.
    Another really gracefull looking ship is HMS Grey Goose, one of the Steam Gunboats. Coastal Forces in Paper has this one in mind and I await it's release with much anticipation.

    Some more hints of craft to do would come from the very vast array of models that "PT Dockyard" do in the quite small 1/600 scale resin.

    Post WW2 we come to Vietnam and the 'Brown Water Navy' craft used first by the French in the 1950s then of course the US and SVN boats, monitors and the various river craft etc.

    Now I turn to aircraft --

    Wellington, Hudson, Boston, Baltimore, Boomerang (RAAF), Wirraway (again RAAF and I know there is a kit available, but the squadron codes on the port side are 'way out of wack'), Blenheim (the later Mk IV), Anson, a good Sunderland and Mosquito (bomber with glass nose).

    Well, there you have my 'wish list'.

    Roger Pearson.
    Bendigo, Australia.

    Thanks Diderick,

    I have seen your site in the past, but my Dutch is non-existant and I could not (still can't) work out how to place an order. I just had a look now and could not find the two aircraft you mentioned.

    How about a Cessna 02 "Mixmaster"?
    I can provide detailed drawings and specs.

    Like to see current generation space craft and space probes as well as more of the latest crop of UAVs.

    It would be nice to harness all the brainpower and fine-motor-skills I've seen in the various builds posted to have a model release ready to go as space missions launch.

    I'm not much on the complex mesh CAD programs - but space craft are usually composed of the simple forms.


    2015 launch scheduled for Solar Probe +

    I have some very accurate scale drawings of the South Dakota Class Battleship Massachusetts. Would you be interested in doing that?

    I'm kinda into Lord of the rings. The towers, the keep, the castles, underground lairs, etc.

    decent scale buildings/structures most avalible building models are either tiny,very simple or places ive never heard of ...or just boring for example i would love a model of the mansell sea forts, a good scale martello tower and a few uk castles and forts i watched a build on ukpms site and it really got me wanting,none of the building kits i found did it for me
    as for other catagories aside from what i already mentiod in an earlier post on this topic ..more larger scale unusual military/civil ships (1:200-1:50)

    im unlikey to get any of this until i can crack designing my own which is somewere on my to do list

    What I'd like to see.

    A few pre-dreadnought battleships would be nice, Kilkis vs Braunschweig vs Majestic vs Danton perhaps?
