A 1/72 Apollo 13 with a damaged SM bay... and especially a 1/18 or 1/24th scale lunar rover. I'd pay as much for a quality rover as I would for the large Saturns.

I don't see the kind of fine detail necessary to render the lunar rover as being Dragon's strength. The company that would really do the rover up beautifully is Bandai (Otono no chogokin series). I wouldn't hold your breath if I were you, but hey - lobbying sometimes works.

Well, if they redesign the front end and solar wings of the Soyuz to match the standard configuration (or rather the Soyuz ferry for Salyut flights) I would love to see that in 1/72.

But I think they should go ahead and issue a Salyut core as well (Salyuts 1 and 4 at least, then perhaps Salyut 6 and 7 later).

Mir might be asking a bit much unless it is the early configuration version with not much stuff attached to it.

Mir is part of their catalog but with different modules attached (and maybe a shuttle?), model #56257.

Well, if they are doing one, it would be in their 1/400 series (not surprising since they are doing versions of the ISS as well since the Salyut station type core is used on Mir and the ISS). I'm talking about something in 1/72, which is MUCH bigger by comparison.

Dragon Models have put their 2013 Space Catalog online but there are no new announcements.

  • Dragon Wings (airliners): 12 months without announcing new model(s)
  • Dragon Warbirds: 7 months*
  • Dragon Space: 10 months
And the Apollo 1:18 figures have disappeared completely.

They've quit?

* ok, one came up out of the blue (F-117) on Dragon USA but is not listed in Dragon official site (Hong-Kong).

No, they haven't. I've been in touch with them recently and products are in development.

They also recently announced the 1/72 Saturn V model kit and are soon shipping the 1/400 Space Shuttle with Mobile Launch Platform.

The U-2R model is available at 1:144 scale.

But since the XB-70 was a bit of a disappointment, I'll pass.
