Wow... I would probably make 1/18 at around $60 with the quality being a little bit better than Hotwheels Elite. Probably racing cars from the 90's up to current in limited numbers. My plan would be a limited production rate while producing the same cars as factory)

1997 McLaren F1 GTR (various liveries and body style options to come with car; different headlights -removable front- , wing, etc.)
1997 Marcos LM600 (various liveries)
1997 Porsche GT1(various liveries)
1997 Mercedes CLK-GTR (well... somewhat various liveries :giggle:)
1998 Porsche GT1 (various liveries)
1997 Nissan R390 (various liveries)
That's all I can think of right now...

I would make all 4 production Hummers and their concepts
A chaparral 2J
C6 Corvette ZR1 (in every available color)
C6 Corvette Z06 (in every available color)
SSC Ultimate Areo twin turbo

All cars to be made with highway 61 like quality(it's better than most autoarts for half the price and feature the rotating driveshaft)

Hmmmmm if i ruled the world.......we would all have Pontiac Aztecs in 1:18 scale versions. Oh yes. Oh yes. And Mox, Jeff and all you elite members - dont you deny you wouldn't want one of those in your collection!  :clap:

My wishes - maybe one day will come true when i win the lottery:
Pontiac Aztec and PT Cruisers.....just because we dont have enough of those beauties........JOKING!

subaru classics - 2004 - 2012....full line of beauties INCLUDING an outback XT (just for me, none for you)
   NOTE: excluding ugly outbacks and legacys....sorry I do not support anything done after 2008. UGLYYYYYYY.... BUT I will support the BRZ and the BRZ STI!
Chevy 2010/2011 Camaro (only Jada does the Camaro WTF?!)
Fiat 500 Tributo to the F430
Dodge Powerwagon & Ford Bronco
S15 Silvia...... there are absolutely NO 1:18 versions of the Silvia which is such an insult
Full nismo line....350z, R32, R33, R34 and for giggles an R35 and a 240z (fairlady my ass....I'll call that a fairwoman!)
Mitsubishi evo X....c-west style
Sam

Recent Additions:
Not much since the wife controls me and the money and the 93 octane isn't cheap!

Maisto makes the current camaro both in civilian and police versions.

If a 1:18 Aztek did come out I might get one...don't laugh there's a 1:18 Kia soul floating around eBay that comes with the stupid hamster if someone willingly bought that I see no reason why an Aztek can't be released at least it's American.there are ways of making the Aztek cool,just watch the american top gear episode titled worst cars in America

:omg: Looking at all the choices we all made so far it seems that we'd all be bankrupt after the making of these 10 models!!! We all have very different choices so that means our models would have very limited sales..


To answer the question, I'd produce 2 qualities of models. One at CMC level and one at Kyosho-Elite or something similar.

So my choices are:

CMC quality
Ferrari 288 GTO
Ferrari 275 GTB4
Bentley Blower
Rolce Royce Pantom IV
Mercedes 600 pullman

Kyosho quality
De Tomaso Pantera
Maserati Merak
BMW E36 M3 (just because it's stupid to pay 200+ for a UT)
Audi Quattro S1
Lancia Delta S4!!!!! For Gods shake someone make these last 2 ever in resin!

I'd go with a few Porsche 993 variants, don't get me wrong I still love the UT cars, but I want an upgrade, give me a GT2 EVO!!!

A few AMG or Brabus cars that have never been produced, Brabus Rocket, E55 AMG + wagons etc.
A few BMW's + Alpinas that have never been done, 1 M, M3 sedans & 5 Series estate cars etc.

F**k you Photobucket.

Interesting thread!

I'd name my company JDModels, they'd be 1:18 and somewhere between norev and autoart, as in sub 100 but have decent engine detail, all doors and boots open etc and flip up lights where applicable!

1) Nissan silvia ps13
2) Nissan 200sx (s13)
3) Nissan 200sx (s14a) - the s14 would come at a later date but the 14a is the 'most wanted'
4) Nissan 200sx (s15)
5) Toyota ae86 levin, eventually in coupe aswell as hatch
6) Mazda rx7 fc3s
7) Mazda rx7 fd3s
8) Toyota supra mk4 facelift
9) Honda civic type r (ek9)
10) Honda integra type r (dc2)

Getting carried away with myself but I'd also develop a line of aftermarket wheels in various sizes, in plug n play fitment for these cars and any future ones..
