Wish Lists / Re: Some suggestions for kits as well as a wish list.

The Panzer 38(t) is on many of our wishlists.
http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=150.msg1479

Warlord's choice of Marder III indicates they might have a Panzer 38(t) in the pipeline (possibly a resized PSC one). I would prefer a Rubicon one.

I couldn't help but notice the following on the Production Schedule list. Most items are of interest, but a few I rated in order of my eagerness to get one.

#1 - PaK 40 AT Gun with Crew in late war uniform http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=438.msg6277#msg6277
#2 - SdKfz 222/223/260/261 http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=512.msg7749#msg7749
#3 - SdKfz 7 Halftrack [urlhttp://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=514.30][/url]

And of course the M4A1. http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=395.msg7521#msg7521
As Pinky notes, there are threads covering these in the work in progress sub forum, see above.

Back on the LRDG list, and with reference to the discussion on the German flak quad cannon on the Opel, could you mount the PAK 36 on the load bed as an LRDG AT truck?

I know that they used 30cwt Chevys but no one does them in plastic (hint hint).

I hope PSC have plenty of Sherman III and CMP at Warfare.

I wonder if we could have a sticky list of wished for items and their relevant thread or in some cases threads (Tiger II I am looking at you!).

Possibly just for the big name items (such as the Tiger II) for maintenance reasons.

It might also help others work in progress items such as Sherman types that are under development but are not obvious such as the Sherman II.

Thanks.

I see Warlord/Italeri's next plastic kit (after the Char B1 bis) is the Marder III.
Why a Marder III and not the other Marder III variants, which was more "popular"?
I think Jimmp_P has a point about it being a PSC derived kit, hence the gun on a tank body rather than a not quite redesigned chassis.

Welcome to the forum.

The M4A1 is on the production schedule:
http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?topic=211.msg1858#msg1858

There is a wishlist sub-forum for anything you would like Rubicon to consider here:
http://forum.rubiconmodels.com/index.php?board=6.0
They even added War Department logos to the British Jerry cans...

Excellent job.

Really must go and see it, but it is "south of the river" and away from the security blanket of the Underground.

Wow.

With exception of the bendy door it looks great.

I wonder what the market would be for post-war armour.  And which period would be the most attractive.  Korean War?  Vietnam War?  Arab-Israeli War?  I'm not sure how suitable 28mm is for post-war gaming, given the effective ranges of modern weapons, but I guess something like Vietnam would work.
All good questions.

There is evidently interest in the various periods, but as you say the range of modern MBT's main guns is going to exceed most players' available space. Lighter kit (APCs, IFVs soft skins) would be more useful.
