Nothing for me, although I do dig that Tomcat. I would love to see HM do a Grumman Tracker once the Hawkeye's popularity starts to wane a bit.
if they did a tracker they could do a tracer (i think) thought probably not a trader (due to the windows, etc).
the tracker was used by the ROC (taiwan) airforce which seems to be always a plus for HM and there are a ton of good navy schemes. A lot of this suggestion makes sense but despite the many positives for some reason I don't see HM doing it, which is a shame. I'd buy at least 4 or 5 that i can think of.
It will be very intriguing to see the Tiffie tooling. Will lads replace their Pooch tooling?
I suspect that the HM Typhoon will definitively replace the Corgi much like the HM Phantom totally obsoleted the Corgi Phantom. The trick will be that even though HM will eventually put out an absoute ton of Typhoons in various liveries, in real life there are so very very many Typhoon liveries out there when you count the special, commemorative, and airshow liveries that collectors will contniue to seek out various corgi, witty, and herpa versions simply because their livery of choice wont be available in HM. This is particularly true of more complex liveries.
That also said, if you have one of those Corgi Battle of Britain Typhoons that sell for a pretty penny now, I'd sell it right now. You can always buy it back later if a HM version fails to materialize and you probably will come out even in that eventuality.

You may regret not getting the UkrAF flanker if that's even slightly in your interest group. Moreover, I suspect that while in general Century Wings tomcats are better than Hobbymaster ones, in the case of this sundowners one HM's will be quite similar to CW's. I hope CalW will do a less loved Sundowners livery as Sundowners tomcats are both popular and there's a lot more out there than just 200 and the parking-lot bird miss molly. Witty made a sundowners bombcat that is worth doing by a proper class AAA diecast manufacturer.
Looked at my HM UkrAF splinter scheme flanker. Unfortunately, the light blue colour is simply too dark. Maybe the aircraft looks like this on a super cloudy day only. JC wings colour seems to be more spot on.
Other than that, and I've looked at this for only a minute, it looks lovely.
