In almost 30 years of collecting I still cannot believe that there is no quality Ferrari 365 GTBS4 (aka Ferrari Daytona Spyder).

This would have to rate as one of the most gorgeous drop tops the world has seen........CMC are you listening?

If I may be allowed to reiterate, Ford RS200.

No Ricko. No Otto. I want something as good as Ignition's 1/43, but in 1/18.

In my defense, if applicable, I hadn't known Ignition made the RS200 when I made the previous post.

I'm going to blaspheme by adding the CMC Ferrari 312P Berlinetta and Spyder to this list. My corrections are minimal: 1) issue a full racing livery version of the Berlinetta and 2) keep Wolfgang mit der RIVETING GUN away from both of them!  The 1:1s don't have all those rivets that CMC seems to delight in spraying all over these svelte, sleek beauties until they look like they have the mumps (the same applies to the CMC Maserati 250F, though in its case it's the excessive size of the rivets that's the issue)!

And I'll repeat Silverstar's original request for a more detailed Porsche 917 - I'll add specifically the K, L and, to my knowledge never before in 1/18th diecast, the original 1969 versions.

The Minichamps Lotus 79 - it's proportions are completely wrong: too high and too short. Its appearance does not accurately reflect the 1:1 which is regularly in consideration for the title of "The Most Beautiful F1 Car Ever".

The Schuco Cooper T53 needs a more accurate nose - the current one is clearly wrong, not coming to a more narrow opening and with two large metal uprights visible inside, like braces on a beautiful woman's teeth.

The Penske Sunoco Lola GT Coupe done correctly. The GMP's nose is not quite right, being flat and snub with a silver bottom piece compared to the sleeker, all blue nose on the 1:1:

AUTOart to make a Ford GT90

Came here to say this.  A nicely detailed GT90 is the last 1:18 I'd ever need to buy.

Beyond that, I'd go for a pre-facelift Mazda RX-7 FD free of giant spoilers or ground effects.

Also, for ANYONE to make an accurate 1:43 McLaren F1 LM that's not harder to find than the real one.  The plain-body GTR by HPI is sweet, but it's no LM.

Agree with all the above mentioned cars, here's another I would like to see:

- Dodge Viper RT/10 & GTS (Autoart made the racing GTS-Rs, surely it wouldn't be that hard to modify?)

Yes, these two for me too! And SUPRA mk4
