No one wants the TRO 3026 Goblin tank... the last combat vehicle we don't have a miniature for?  I guess that ship has sailed...

Ferret?

I'm game to support vintage vehicles. That's the era I mostly play and so would happily contribute.

I’d also go for alternate turrets for the carrier series like the AC/2, laser, and MRM

I would love to chuck in for new turrets.

Gossamer is possible. Would also support alternate turrets for the Carrier series. And would drop a little on the 3026 Goblin.

I love the Gossamer, carrier turrets and Goblin 3026 (as long as it's in the smaller scale of old tanks).

But when I realized that the Predator Tank Destroyer was still lacking a miniature, I was sad. I would definitely throw my lot behind that one, with alternate gun barrels for the differing versions.

 . . . so does this mean we are getting alternate gun versions?  I mean so far there is just a original AC/20 and the modern LB-20X . . . are you saying we might get a iHGR?  HAG? . . . Plasma Rifle- I mean it is Capellan . . .

Well, the iHGR version is described in TRO 3150, p. 66, and I'm hopeful that we'll still see the RS "sometime soon."

Also, I'd be happy to throw in an extra 50 or whatnot to sculpt the basic AC/20 of the "Original" version to be longer and more slender, with a "saukopf" type gun mantlet, per the original illustration.

Oh, it is in that collection of 3145/3150 RS that gets discussed around campfire tables like the Clan ERLL Juliano, Orion C, and others.  I was wondering b/c all I saw in MegaMek last week was the two Predators I mentioned.
