Dear Manufacturers!

My petition is aimed to you because you have the possibility of elevating our hobby, scale car, truck and motorcycle motorcycle modelling to the next level. 

You might have realized that the molding technology and development of scale models has undergone a huge improvement in the first two decades of the 21st century. New model manufacturers have appeared - they keep appearing almost every week - with superb new kits of unprecedented engineering and detail. Unfortunately for us, civilian vehicle modellers, these are mostly military themed kits. However, these kits include features and improvements one would actually expect from civilian model manufacturers! Just check the engine bay of MiniArt's T-54/55 series, or the Hobby Boss Land Rover kits, the running gear of some Bronco armored cars or Trumpeter military trucks - all these in 1/35 scale! 

At the same time, new model car or motorbike releases are getting scarcer, most of them being reissues, with one or two new tool or new decal releases annually, and hardly any of these is a full detail kit! We understand tooling is costly, but is the tooling of a 100+ part model car really more expensive than that of an 1000+ part AFV with full interior? Are civilian vehicles not documented well enough for a sophisticated design? The molding and design technology is on the market - you have to take a step. 

A final word on the model subjects: while most of us like reissues, the nostalgy effect will not last forever (however I like some, I won't buy 20 of them) and it won't attract new modelers for sure. They want the to see the daily beaters, whether JDM, European or American, and the cars they race in games in scale. (Secret hint: East European cars). 

So our request is: please take a step forward and bring us the 21st Century kits military and aerospace modellers already have!
