I know that its not even 2017 yet, but the curiosity bug bit me. Do you have any predictions for 2017 releases from Tamiya, Aoshima, Fujimi, Revell-USA, Revell-Germany and others?

I have to say that I think 2016 was a pretty darn good year, at least for fulfilling my wishes. I got an FXX-K, AMG GT and Aventador SV. Plus, many got their wish for a Pagani.

fujimi: some reissues....

Revell - Audi RS5 DTM, Audi R8 GT3

I'm very happy to be able to say- "2017? Meh!"

I got my E30 M3 this year. And a very nice (if a bit simple) Lotus Esprit. There is very little I can think of now that any kit maker could announce that would really excite me. (A Lotus Exige would do it).

But then again, until Tamiya released it I had no idea that I needed a Mercedes 300SL....

Tamiya: a 300SL roadster, Lexus LC-500 or Porsche 911 GT3 RS?
Aoshima: probably more Lamborghini variations, but it would be nice to see them finally do a proper McLaren F1 short tail (preferably road car for me)
Fujimi: who knows!
Revell-Germany: a classic Mercedes like the pagado would be nice.

Belkits: the new 2017 WRC... and a few classics (escort MK 2 ??) :)
Beemax/Aoshima : going on with group B till they do them all :grinyes: :grinyes:
Hasegawa: re-release of rally cars :icon16:
revell: sls amg gt, dtm, and a why not a chiron ?! :biggrin:
tamiya: who...? :sly:

Manta 400 and Lancia S4, Quattro short wheel base are coming. Ascona 400, 6R4 would be nice additions.
Suddenly we are seeing our dreams come true.
Merry Xmas modellers.

i'm actually expecting more morden F1 kits, like mercedes amg w07, from tamiya. it's been about 5 years since their RB6 kit. But who knows, their last WRC car kit was 10 years ago..

Surprised no one wants to see McLaren P1 or P1 GTR. I would love to be able to build one.
No matter what company releases the model.

P1 can be converted from die-cast model which is officially licensed by McLaren and thus true to scale. In overall it's a good starting point concerning that the engine is not seen even on real P1.

I'd love to see Hasegawa do a classic Maserati as a companion to their gorgeous 250GTO, like a Mistral or Ghibli SS.

From Revell or Moebius, a new 1971-73 Javelin is overdue. How long must we struggle with the Johan?

From Tamiya... Jaguar D-Type or Aston Martin DBR-1 as a companion to the Gullwing, possibly a reissue of the MkII Jaguar and the Morgan Plus?

From Fujimi... Nissan GTR GT3. A great companion to their BMW Z4, Porsche 911GT3R, and McLaren MP4-12C, especially after the 2015 Bathurst win.

Personally, I'd be happy for Hasegawa to re-release the Subaru Legacy and the early Mitsubishi Lancer Evo's 1-3. For Beemax to release the Lancia Delta S4 and the Audi Quattro S1 and maybe the Brabham BT52 that was promised.
I'd like to see the Opel Manta from Belkits come to the market and if they'd do a Ford Escort MK2 that would be nice to have.
Only other things that would be a bonus is an RS200 and a Metro 6R4..

Revell AG - The Porsche 934 race cars are still coming. Seems like back to classic cars, or perhaps expanding the DTM series forward. There was talk that if the 570S sold well enough it could spawn further McLarens, but considering it was just released it might be to soon to expect anything of that nature in 2017. But this is the easiest one as they'll announce their 2017 slate in 3 days.

Tamiya - Honda/Acura NSX Type-R anyone?

Aoshima -
Fact - Diablo GTR (race car based on the GT), D1 Grand Prix HKS Toyota 86
Conjecture - '17 Nissan GT-R, '15 Crown Athlete (minor front end revision as was done to the Crown Royal Saloon), another version of the Pagani - there are parts on the runners that aren't used in the kit as issued. A Huayra BC or Roadster?

Fujimi - AMG GT GT3 - there were 3D renders done for this already. Who knows when in 2017 it would come out since the '15 Toyota Alphard/Vellfire van kits seems to be stuck in a delay time warp.

Hasegawa - Another variant of the N360 (still parts on those runners that haven't been used on either kit), and a 2nd variant of the new Jimny.

Belkits - '15 & '16 VW Polo, and Opel Manta 400 x2. Be interesting if there's further product development at Nuremberg Toy Faire, since the Polos just need approval from VW and the Opel is finally going into the first stage of tooling.

Beemax - Toyota Levin AE92 Gr. A, Brabham BT52, Quattro S1, Lancia Super Delta, Volvo 240 Gr. A. Also the next variant of the Civic, and two more variants of the BMW M3.

After releasing the 300SL Gullwing, I still wait for Tamiya to make the most famous Aston-Martin ever - the DB5! :sunglasse

I wish 2017 will bring some or all of the following:

Revell Germany
The Audi RS5 DTM and the Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM.
Add the Mercedes-AMG GT3 since they made the Mercedes-AMG GT street car.
Why not a Audi RS4 and RS6 street cars?

Fujimi
If the Mercedes AMG GT3 doesn´t emerge from Revell Fujimi needs to step up to the plate.

Tamiya
Time for some serious FIA World Endurance Championship kits.
Tamiya is the brand that can make this happen.
I would like the 2016


Audi R18
Toyota TS050 HYBRID
Porsche 919 Hybrid

Yes, I know there are resin kits for the later two, but I want proper plastic and high detail.

Also the GT class front runners:


Aston Martin Vantage GTE
Ford GT40 2016


Reji Model
The Abt-Audi TT-R from the 2002 DTM.

Studio27
The Dallara F312 in Maccau livery from Prema Powerteam.

Plastic would be nice but all three are available from Fisher Models. Curbside resin but reasonably priced (for resin) and very nice to build.

I think it will be possible for tamiya to make the TS050 since they almost win Le Mans & win their homerace at Fuji. And they should do the 919, the Le Mans winner, like years ago when they release 956, 962, & 911 GT1 (they tend to have bond with Porsche, they have released lots of model of it) :D

- BT52 has already been announced more than 6 months ago.
- A Volvo 240 3D render has appeared somewhere in a conversation on their FB page.
- and for the E30 variants, I have no clue

To Aoshima/Beemax/Belkits : thanks so much for what you already gave us and for what you will surely give us in a near future.
To Fujimi/Hasegawa : keep up the good work, keep an eye on what the market wants ;)

To Tamiya : c'mon guys, WAKE UP !!! In the last forty years I've never seen such a lack of ambition :(

Need one of those in my collection.

Veyron
