Most appealing is the Helldiver as I have not gotten one in my collection yet and the secondary prices for the few made are extremely high.
The F-18 is darn tempting, and the SU-35's as well a purchase. A good selection this month, several that are tempting to get.

Tempted by the Helldiver for my Bunker Hill mini theme but I'm pretty happy with my Yorktown Helldiver and don't really have room for more ':-)

Already have the Su-35 on order, maybe the F-104, not a must have as I'm really waiting on a different scheme with wing tip missiles, its wait and see how the pre pros are before ordering.

And the P-40 scheme is too similar to the RAAF I have on order.

Nice for my budget!

I really wish HM would poll their ideas on their website, it would help keep down the schemes no ones really interested in or get us the schemes we want now rather then in 2 years or never.

Provided they turn out OK, the decal release Su-35 and F/A-18E are musts. Possibly the F-104 and F-22 depending on how they turn out and how I feel at the time.

Oh that might hurt feelings. And there is no safe space for diecast collectors. Someone's must have, is the next person's heck no.

HM could always do what Lego has, post a web site with certain liveries and have a vote.
With Lego, if the numbers get above so many votes, Lego goes ahead with a final approval process and makes the set. They make sure there is enough interest to go ahead.
With the small runs HM makes now, it would be just as good as the current way HM is doing currently with checking on pre-orders through their distributors to estimate the size of production runs.

That F-4 for me! Already have the F-104 on order, and I'll do the F-18E as well. And the Syria Su-35.

Why release the Phantom in the low vis-grey rather than its SEA camo???? I'll still most likely add it to my collection of Phantom MiG Killers but would much rather it be released in its Da Nang Gun Fighters colors. That Phantom is currently on display in her SEA camo at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA

I think we've had enough of SEA.

This is a new welcomed change honestly. Hopefully we can get some other late low vis model Phantoms like this, USN, USMC and USAF.

And of course more Euro1, ADC grey and some SEA wrap around would be nice.

How many polls have been done before? And how many of them have lead to anything? Given how long its taken for modern Russian crap to be made based on all the wish lists of the past. Your kids will probably get what you want before you do.

they could do the poll on their website, like how lego does, instead of relying on popular forums since there has been aspersions that even the most popular forum is not reflective of collectors' sentiments...

I don't mean polls on here, there basically useless as is voting by muppets (oh yeah CJ3 is gonna rocket to the top of google because of that ) I mean Hobby Master do polling on their website or start a poll on Facebook (if possible), Calwings seems to get a lot of "hits" on their Facebook page, it would also appeal to a younger crowd who are the future of this hobby.
