I think I need a Tamiya Mosquito.   I want to have all the great Tamiya kits and that's one of the last ones I haven't built.

All of the ones I don't have already. Top of the list HPH Helldiver, and jets I need to pick up a F/A-18A Red Devils boxing. They shot that box art at the Miramar Airshow, and a friend knows the pilot of that Hornet.

Right now, the only in-production “hole” I have is the F-14. Now if you are talking about stuff that has never been made, I have about a dozen. I really want a Japanese Val or Kate, a devastator would be nice, and we still need an Apache.

There's a couple. 

- Rosso 1/12 Honda NSX. I melted one by accident, sold another and regret that last move. At least I have the engine from the melted one.

- Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari 288 GTO. 

- Italeri 1/35 Vosper torpedo boat.

Of the three, at least the last one is still in production. The NSX won't ever be back as the company had a fire and all the dies were destroyed as I understand it.

The only kit I'm actively seeking is the 1/35 Dragon Sd.Kfz.250/9 Neu variant #6316, specifically that one as it's the most up to date version of the kit.

There is a chain of toy stores here in Brisbane, that used to have hundreds of Dragon armour kits, but in the last year they have liquidated them all and don't stock the brand anymore.

About the only other on my list would be a variant of the Ar234; was thinking of picking up a Fly kit now that they've repopped their initial releases, but will probably hold off for the Zoukei Mura kit now.

A-hole?  Really...  I don't lack anything.  The 1/16 scale Pz I will be welcome.   I've never built one in any scale cuz they were just too tiny.  I mean...  I was recently thinking about a 1/35 BMW with sidecar and 2-man crew...  but then I realized the whole contraption would be two inches tall by two inches long... Too small for fun!

I have enough kits in my stash to last me until I'm well past 100 and while there are a few new kits I would like to have it's unlikely I would ever get to them. With apologies to the Beatles... I fixing the hole that the stash fits in to stop my mind from wandering...

Actually there are no real holes in my stash, it will by far last longer than me specially considering my slow pace while building. The HPH Walrus is a maybe, but with full resin builds I tend to go Steam Punk and Sci-Fi with kits from Industria Mechanika and the like. 

To me it is more about the 'want to have' kits, there are some. A decent 1/32 Spit is on the list, as well as some WNW-kits. In the moment my finger is hovering over the 'buy-button' to get me a Blohm & Voss 141 and a Avenger MK I but these will be in 1/48.

Generally, since living on my tiny island, my urge of buying new kits has evaporated a little. Not that there are no temptations, but I reduced buying new stuff a lot, since it was often a substitute satisfactory thing, while working hard and living in the stressful never stopping but nice city of Berlin.

I thought the same a while ago and got me those along with a MB BMW kit with etched parts, to build a little vignette with lots of mud and snow.

I am with Phil and the Tamiya 1/48 Lancaster, I still remember drooling over a built up one in the local model store when I was around 15, 40 odd years ago!

I have the F-18A Red Devils boxing that I can let go.
