Hello fellow good guys,

Well, you could've knocked me over with a feather when I opened up good old "PMMS new kit news"....and from the thread below it looks like I ain't the only one. A Tortoise looking back at me...in styrene, no less! Sheeesh.

Well, it got me to thinking....some guys must have wished for this quaint device even though it and other new releases are amazingly ABOVE AND BEYOND what we (us A-ML guys) would ordinarily wish for.

We usually ask for "a different sherman" or "a more accurate kit of "X" " but who in their right mind (and I mean that in the nicest possible way) would even bother to wish for a Tortoise, a Black Prince, a Terrapin or a T28??

Okay, so let's let our imaginations go ballistic. It's time to wish for something that we all know couldn't POSSIBLY be produced in styrene. No way, no how....right?

Give it some thought....go through a few books....talk it over with club members...who knows what we may get??

My super-duper wish list (which is only a guide and kinda lame):

1. The bow of an LST...open of course (hey MiniArt...take a bow )

2. The M6A1 heavy tank

3. US pontoon bridge section

4. M2A4 light tank (Guadalcanal and Western Desert)

5. A cletrac complete with...everything.

6. The M6 and the M5 high speed tractor

7. A Dodge 1/2 ton series

6x6 wrecker or 6x6 tanker, Tamiya has 75% of the model there already, of course the price would keep me away till deeply discounted....Tamiya do your 1/48th US Army Sedan, Ford??? in 1/35th...you have done the Tilly, Citroen and Kuble in both scales...Tamiya you would need to do some figures, drivers, mechanics(for the wrecker) and officers/drivers for the sedan. Thanks, Mike

1) Time to build all the stuff I have sitting on shelves (and still be able to watch TV)

2) Somewhere to display the above when completed!

Oh, yes, a Mack NO, an M5 High Speed Tractor (in styrene), a US 90mm AAA and an M18 that has correct hull contours!
