I second on every form of DShK, especially a pintel mounted version like this one:

Definitely second the British Polsten AA Gun in either single, triple or quad mounts. Also the Soviet 122 mm gun and a DShK that could double as a pintle.

Not to nitpick, but which 88 do you want, the FLAK version or the PAK version? Same gun in two very different carriages.
Also, the 75mm PAK is the PAK40, the PAK 38 is 50mm, which do you mean?
Unless you of course mean the 75mm PAK 97/38 based on the French model 1897 gun.

USA :        75 mm pack howitzer

                   6 POUNDER QF

Agree with all the above.

Ooh, ooh!  Whatever towed guns you might make, please design the kit so that when assembled the trails are movable and can be posed in towed and deployed position as needed during gaming.  Even if I have metal kits for guns, I would replace them with articulated plastic ones!

British/US
Anti-Tank
QF 6pdr/57mm Gun M1
Provide different Brit/US tire options

US
Anti-Tank
3" Gun M5
(which shares carriage parts with: 105mm Howitzer M2)

Since small arms where mentioned, i Vote for the German STG44, you can get them both in resin or metal, both are a pain in the ass to add to a model ;(

I didn't notice you were asking about small arms too... well, basically all of them would be useful! However, more important I think would be to also include various ammo boxes, magazines, spare barrel casings etc.

Take a look at Tamiya's 1/35 weapon sets for instance. Here is the german one:


It has a lot of different weapons as well as ammo cases and holsters and pouches for the various weapons. It's not perfect as I would have liked it to have ammo belts as well, and a spare barrel case for the machine guns. Also note that this set is both for early and late war, featuring both a SturmGewehr 44 as well as a ERMA MP35 submachine gun.

It might be better to produce sets for early or late war, and include stuff like personal kit as well.

1) Britain
2) anti-tank gun
3) 6pdr and Lloyd Carrier


OH yes, Please do the Loyd Carrier as no one does this in 1/56.
The Warlord Carden Loyd Carrier is NOT the same and is totally unsuitable for any post 1940 game as could not tow a 6 pounder or anything else for that matter.

Cheers

First  would like to say I would always buy plastic over resin/metal, not just because of lower cost, but because of ease of assembly, and I hate having my fingers glued together! I only went back to wargaming because of 28mm plastic soldiers!

Most of your customers are table gamers, (and collectors), so the most useful would be direct fire weapons, particularly anti-tank guns, 6pdr/17pdr/5.0cm/7.5cm/3-inch/ZiS-3 etc.

Also, light A/A weapons used in the ground role, particularly the 2cm flak 38. together with carriage.

For heavy weapons I strongly suggest sprues containing weapons that can supplement the other plastic manufacturers ranges, namely MG34/42 on tripod mount, TMi43, 8.1cm mortars & flamethrowers.for the Germans, and their equivalents in other armies. That way you could supplement your plastic figures, or convert to mortar crews, MG support, and Pioneers.

Anti-tank gun crews!

I would buy all of the above.
