Default Die-cast Helicopter wishes?

I love the direction FOV are going regarding helicopters. It seems we`ll get some very detailed Helo`s coming from them. Exciting times. What helo`s would you like them to produce? I personally would love some Mi-24 Hinds in 1/72 scale. I would also, un-ashamedly like one of these strange looking Gazelles below in 1/72 or 1/48 scale! Well it DID actually fly........!

FoV needs to bring back the V-22 yooling bad! Word is they will, but this time with folding blades and wings.

I would agree that helos have not gotten the love the deserve. I think SpecOps birds will sell well.

US Army:
I would like the MH/AH-6, and/or a good MH-60 DAP. HM already has a brilliant AH-64. You really can't go wrong with anything in the 160th SOAR.

For my Marines:
I am glad to see the AH-1 and future V-22 coming back. Hopefully some nice Hueys (venoms) as well.

Personally I am dying for a USAF CV-22 and an HH-60G (especially considering they already have tooling for both). If someone made those I would be in heaven.

I hope FoV can fill this niche, effectively and with detail.

I would like a nicely detailed HH-65 Dauphine in USCG colors. An action packed rescue diorama could also be paired with the model to honor the brave and skilled crew who have rescued so many people.

Top of my list is a 1/72 V-22, but I believe they have that planned.

Less popular, and nothing to do with whether or not they are good "business sense" (I don't care):
Sikorsky R-4, the first helo built in any appreciable numbers.
Westland Wasp, just because I want one.
Westland Lynx, because I'm in a tiny minority that doesn't like the Corgi tooling.

Aside from those, I'm happy with pretty much anything rotary. It would be great though if it wasn't just Hueys and Cobras. The Mustangs and Tomcats of the rotary world. Always done and boring after a while.

The UH-1 series
Allouette ( Rhodesian and South African)
Pumas ( a South African one would be excellent). I know Corgi do Pumas but they don't get released often!!

This is indeed the very example of the Corgi stubborn insular mentality that is dooming them. They have a nice tool but failure to release any other scheme than RAF is really surprising (to remain polite). The Puma has seen service everywhere in the world, including combat service. French or South African Pumas will sell well, and do not require any retooling.

Same for another fixed wing feline, the Jaguar, with minor tooling amendment.

That would be a very good choice indeed to see the HH-65 helicopter in USCG livery and also one example of the French Naval Aviation version..

I'd love to have this trio of the KHR26 "Franken":



And an UH-1D in SAR markings. Preferably one with LTG61 markings.



An AH-1G or F of a unit that operated out of Feucht AAF wouldn't be bad either.

I d like to see:
-the NH90, AB 206 and AH 64 in the Hellenic army colors.
-the MH-60R in the Hellenic navy colors
For the AH64 I was told by hobby master that they will produce it still this year...

Does anyone know which manufacturer has a good mould for the other ones so I can "bother' them?

Thanks
CM
