Here's a list of my most wanted HM Liveries. These for the most part will be liveries that require *little to no mould change*. I will do these in the order found on the HMC website.
Please feel to comment with your own wants, preferably with images.
1. B5N2 Kate:
Close the book on this mould. No more liveries needed. Maybe it would be nice if they re-did HA-2006 properly, but barring that, the book can be closed on this one other than the occasional similar releases for those who did not get them the first time around.
It would be nice if they worked the mould into a beaufort (keeping all but the fuselage), but barring this I don't see a critical need for anything here. That said, a white stripey RAAF version may be the most outstanding need:
Between my HMs and my Corgis I dont personally have any more needs here. There are plenty of liveries that still can be released, but I think HM has covered the critical ones more or less. Maybe a rudolf hess one, but I can't imagine anybody is dying for that one. Probably a splotchy desert one is the most critical need:
It would be great if they made a wide cabin version of this, but barring that, the most critical need is probably something that shawn would like - the olive USN experimental versions. However, I'd personally go for another early dark blue version like HA2905 - either one with a yellow or other color stabilizer tip or a stateside reserve version. While that initially sold slowly, it since sold out and is now HTF and much in demand.
Actually, the first three skyraiders in the decals sheet below would be nice:
5. A-20 Havoc/Boston
Wonderful little model, but they've covered all of the subjects I'd be interested in. At a push a "british style camo" US one or a sand splotched camo USAAF one would be nice, but knowing HM they'd make a soviet one that would not sell well.
6. A-26 Invader
Only one model that I want - a us navy drone carrying version
the above is not exactly that, but is what is achievable with the mould as is. With a small change to the nose, it is possible i think to make a drone carrier properly.
7. E-2C Hawkeye
No more for me thanks. If they did an earlier E-2 versions there may be something to talk about, but otherwise I'm happy with what has been released.
8. F6F hellcat
Please hobbymaster, it's time:
9. Ju-87 Stuka
HM seems to have run out of ideas with this mould and I agree. a nice mould, but nothing more for me.
10. P-39/P-400 Airacobra
For the love of god how did they not release this yet?
This is a relatively new mould. I have one chinese and the one with the death's head on it. Between that and my corgi's, I don't think many more are in the future for me and I don't see any pressing needs.
Time for HM to release a proper "stereotype" "Ace of Spades" SBD-5. The corgi one has issues and a proper paint job one would be nice. More critically, of course, is for HM to release a "tail gunner open" version, but that's not going to happen. The remaining subjects are mostly derivative or uninteresting, like the air transport command ones or mexican ones.
that said, there is still one livery i'd really like to see:
A billion obscure T-6s and HM still hasn't released this one (or one like it)
a scandal, really.
prototype avenger is all i can think of:
