Default 2012 X-mas Wish list...Feel free to ask Santa

Dear Santa,

I would like for you to get your elves to make The following or use some leverage on manufacturers to start production:

1).A Giant scale (80-82") T-34 Mentor ARF from TopFlite

2). All future ARF's from any manufacturer- light enough to be bashed, but well built enough to handle gasoline engines- not like some of the new electric capable ones that are barely held together

3). Some more unusual warbird ARF's (IE- Brewster buffalo, Yak3/9 ((in-line engine)), P-36 Hawk, Navy Wildcat, Other Jap planes besides a Zero, Douglass Devestator, Beech-18, HE & Dornier Bombers, Some odd Russian Stuff (free free to add requests), that are made in America, yet affordable enough to allow them to be readily affordable and competitive with the masses from China and Vietnam

Anyone else ??

I would take the plane also.

I would also like all of the manufacturer's of scale models to, at the very least, include a scale on the drawings , with which you can use for locating details. A good three view of the plane that was used as the basis of the model should be mandatory. On a model that is scaled at 1:3.4 or whatever wierd scale used, a conversion scale is extreamely helpful. The same goes for ARFs. After all, the kit builder had to have something to start with.

I would not have any use for the model in front of the model, its easily damaged, tempremental, sometimes difficult to turn on, needs constant molycoddling, leaks badly at least once a month, its good looks dont last, and it needs constant maintanance, its also gets heavier the older it gets, one is an ultimate model, the others just a model

That is why you just rent. Dont buy the cow if milk is free. When done, trade in or up.

Ah, but the muffler does work, it just needs a combination of money, and constant praise and affection,the one i have lost her visa card, whoever found it spends less than she did, bliss, sheer bliss

Unfortunately, the covering's a little to thick to reveal the rivet detail.
Mind you, the opening for the fuel nozzle can be made out.
