Customer of many decades but first post on this forum. As a Great War student, thanks for the pre-dreadnoughts Canopus and Braunschweig! I enjoy what-if scenario/campaigns including never-built ships, but prefer the what-if conflict beginning, say, 5 years earlier, with only a half-dozen dreadnoughts in service, no centralized fire control, and armored cruisers with a legitimate role. Please add my votes for:

UK armored cruiser Cressy (6 in class)
UK battleship Lord Nelson (2)
German armored cruiser Roon or Yorck (2 eacg)
German light cruiser Gazelle
French battleship Liberte (4) or Republique (2)
Italian armored cruiser Giuseppe Garibaldi (3; change the stacks and you have the Japanese Kasuga and Nisshin)

Certainly other UK or German pre-dreadnoughts would be welcome to those of us who would buy the whole class, but hey, Canopus and Braunschweig made my year!

I am happy that GHQ released the Canopus. This is one that I have had on my request list for a while and just received it with the rest of my GHQ order. I am looking forward to the Otranto as well. This should enable me to play Coronel and Falklands at some point.

Has anyone mentioned Akula, Alpha, Sierra and other Russian subs?

Is there a link to a spreadsheet, somewhere?

Sorry, I'm new here.

Akula, Alpha, Sierra, etc. are on the list but don' t have enough votes to make the posted "top 100" list. I will add your votes for these classes to the list.
I don't have any links to my spreadsheets. I am willing to send a pdf copy if you want one.

I just noticed there are no F-18C, F-15E, A-6, A-7, F-111, Eurofighter, Viggen, Draken, or F-8 models.

These would look really cool, especially loaded up with mk 82 bombs.

Less urgent would also include jammer planes like the EF-111, EA-6B, and F/A-18G.

Things I would like to see (and probably eventually buy)
- some civilian / merchant ship options for micronauts modern - panamax container, oil tanker, cruise ship etc. useful for scenario building
- a great war japanese navy line, especially ww1 era kongo's - would like to wargame japan getting involved earlier and more actively, and japan vs german pacific sqn.
- I 400 class submarine - they are super silly designs
- surcouf class submarine - ditto
Things I would very much like to see, and would buy as soon as they came out (all ww2)
- Akatsuki class japanese destroyers (using slightly modified fubukis as stand-ins, but they do look noticably wrong)
- Japanese landing craft pack (so we can do naval invasion scenarios)
- Japanese late war aircraft models / land based fighters (ohka, seiran, reppu, hien, zuiun, maybe hayate) - needed for late war balance/scenarios
- Kaidai III type submarines - a japanese sub WITHOUT the stupid aircraft facilities
- Jan van Amstel class dutch minesweeper (Abraham Crijnssen)
- K XIV class dutch submarines (did a lot in ww2 pacific)
- Design 1047 dutch battlecruiser (Never built, probably not enough demand to justify GHQ making this one)
- small cargo vessels of various nations (coastal tramps, fishing trawlers etc)

Eserjie (apologies if I misspell the name),

There is a 3-D printed version of one of the Dutch Battlecruiser designs available. It is produced by Shapeways (either "Squint 181" or "Tiny Thingamigigs"). I brought three of those a few years ago; they're not up to GHQ's standards, but they're not bad. Those two makers have put out a raft of ships, including a lot that I've never heard of. If you really want to add BCs to your Dutch fleet, these may be your best bet.

Re: Consolidated Micronaut Wish List

Post by Donald M. Scheef »

Here is my Micronaut Consolidated Wish List for 2021-2022. My choices are (in alphabetical order of country of origin):

• WWII France torpedo boat La Melpomene-class: This class of miniature destroyers was intended for escort work in the Mediterranean. They turned out overweight, lacking in stability, and unsuited for open-ocean work. They were fast, however, and several of them had interesting careers. There are numerous other small ships of similar characteristics that I would like modeled (see Italian Spica-class below).

• WWII France destroyer Vauquelin-class: GHQ’s FRN5 is labeled as Vauquelin, but I believe the arrangement of the torpedoes and the shape of the stern is that of the preceding Aigle class. There are several classes of WWII-era French destroyers yet to be modeled by GHQ; any of the following would be welcome: Mogador, Guepard, Chacal, L’Adroit, and Bourrasque.

• WWII Germany amphibious craft: Germany had a variety of small and medium-sized amphibious craft such as F-lighters, Marinefährprahm, Siebel ferry, etc. These were used in the Mediterranean, Black Sea and other coastal combat areas. I would like something similar to USN54, Landing Assault Craft, or USN55, Landing Support Craft, with a variety of types in a package.

• WWII Germany Aircraft Pack 2: First of all, a single-engined fighter (Fw 190A/F or Bf 109T), Ju 88 or Ju 188 (preferably armed as a dive-bomber), He 111 (preferably with torpedo armament), He 115 floatplane, and/or He 177 (preferably with FX 1400 guided bomb or Hs 293 missiles)]: All five types played significant roles in maritime combat. The Germans really need a single-engine fighter. Maybe even both fighter types rather than one of the Heinkel aircraft.

• WWI Italy light cruiser Bixio-class or Quarto: One of these would give the Italians a scouting force to go along with its heavier forces. The Pisa-class cruiser that GHQ produced for the 2018-2019 season is an armored cruiser rather than a light cruiser.

• WWI Italy battleship Dante Alighieri: This one-of-a-kind battleship carried heavy armament and had a high speed at the expense of relatively light armor. I would like to have it both because of its unusual appearance and to complete the Italian WWI battle fleet.

• WWII Italy destroyer Folgore-class: This class of four destroyers and the similar Freccia-class saw extensive service as escorts in the Mediterranean. Less than satisfactory because of mechanical unreliability, these ships still deserve to have a good model in 1/2400 scale. CinC makes a model for the Freccia class, but GHQ would be better.

• WWI Italy destroyer Indomito or Pilo-class: I would like the WWI Italian fleet to have a full-sized destroyer. The Soldato-class that GHQ produced last year is more of a torpedo boat rather than a destroyer.

• WWII Italy torpedo boat Spica-class: These were good-looking ships with high speed, but let down by the armament scheme. Their gun and torpedo armament was ineffective against full-size destroyers and left insufficient capacity for defensive weapons. They would have been much better escorts with more anti-submarine capability and air defenses. I would like more of these smaller warships available.

• WWII Japan late-war Navy aircraft: Aichi B7A Ryusei [Grace], Kawanishi N1K Shiden [George], Mitsubishi A7M Reppu [Sam], Yokosuka D4Y3 [Judy] (radial version), Yokosuka P1Y Ginga [Frances]. Although Jill, Val, etc. continued fighting to the end of the war, they were meat on the table for Hellcats and Corsairs. Improved Japanese aircraft make hypothetical late-war battles more evenly balanced. I was disappointed that GHQ did not include any of these when they released IJN58, CV Unryu.

• WWII Japan heavy cruiser Maya, late-war appearance: This Takao class heavy cruiser was badly damaged at Rabaul. After repairs, the ruined “C” turret had been replaced by two additional twin 5-inch mounts. Although this is a single ship, I think the interest in Japanese cruisers is enough to make this a good choice for GHQ’s production.

• WWII Japan destroyer Mutsuki class, fast transport conversion: This was the last of the Japanese destroyer classes before the introduction of the revolutionary “Special Type” Fubuki. Considered obsolescent by 1940, they were converted into fast transports, most of which were sunk during the Solomons Campaign. This is the configuration that I would prefer.

• WWII Japan destroyer Shimakaze: This was only a single ship but many more were planned. This was a particularly fast and powerful design for a classic destroyer. Later in the war, the main gun armament was reduced to provide additional anti-aircraft protection. I would prefer the original appearance.

• WWII Soviet Union battleship Sovyetskiy Soyuz design: This is the only hypothetical ship on my wish list. As with the German H, British Lion, and US BB-67 designs that are already available from GHQ; work was started but none were completed. I think the only 1/2400 model of Sovyetskiy Soyuz now available is a 3-D printed version.

• WWI UK battlecruiser Renown-class: This was the last class of battlecruisers completed during the Great War. Repulse saw combat in the First World War when she participated in the Second Battle of Heligoland Bight. Although CinC makes a model of this class, GHQ’s would be better

• WWII UK aircraft Fleet Air Arm pack: By now, anyone with 1/2400-scale British aircraft has plenty of Swordfish, but none of the other purpose-built aircraft used on carriers. Blackburn Skua, Fairey Fulmar, Fairey Firefly, and Fairey Barracuda would provide some variety on the decks. For land-based designs adapted for carrier use, Gloster Gladiators and Hawker Hurricanes would also be useful in addition to the available Spitfires. All of these aircraft saw significant combat from British carriers. If a Hurricane were available, it would also allow me to put aircraft on Catapult Armed Merchant Ships (CAMSs).

• WWII UK battleships Duke of York, Anson, or Howe: GHQ has produced Prince of Wales, but I would like to have a late-war version of this class, with significantly increased medium anti-aircraft weaponry. Although none of these ships were identical at the end of the war, the differences are small enough that I would accept any of these three to represent the others.

• WWII UK light cruisers Scylla and Charybdis: These two ships were nominally part of the Dido class, but because of shortage of the 5.25-inch guns that were to have been their main armament, they each received four twin 4.5-inch anti-aircraft guns instead. Sometimes referred to as “toothless,” they proved excellent anti-aircraft escorts and saw significant combat.

• WWII UK destroyers ‘V & W’ long-range escort conversions. These ships underwent significant conversion from obsolescent destroyers into effective anti-submarine escorts. The extent of the conversion makes it impractical to change GHQ’s UKN43 into this appearance. GHQ has already produced the unconverted version and the even more extensively converted anti-aircraft WAIR version. I would like them to continue with this and later the fast (short-range) escort version.

• WWII USA aircraft: land-based attack and medium bombers: The Douglas A-20 Havoc and its late-war replacement, the A-26 Invader, were high-powered attack types. GHQ already makes a B-25B (with USS Hornet and in the land-based bomber set), but I would like to have a late-model North American B-25H or J for low-level anti-shipping strikes. Although the Martin B-26 Marauder was used mostly for medium-altitude level bombing in Europe, they participated in the Battle of Midway as torpedo bombers.

• WWII USA auxiliary ships: Just before and during WWII the USA constructed a large number of purpose-built auxiliary ships on a common hull design. These included the Dixie (AD 14)-class destroyer tenders [5 in class], the Fulton (AS 11)-class submarine tenders [4 in class], and the Vulcan (AR 5)-class repair ships [7 in class]. Although the classes were not identical, they were similar in carrying significant self-defense armament so that they could serve in advanced bases.

• WWII USA attack transport Harris (APA 2) class: Sixteen medium-sized passenger liners were built at the end of WWI to the “Design 1029” standard, also known as the “dollar design” and the “President 535-foot” design. Most operated as merchant liners between the wars, were taken over by the Army in 1940 and transferred to the Navy in 1942. Four were sold outside the US in the late 1930s, one remained in service with the Army, three were sunk as Navy transport ships before conversion to attack transports, and eight were converted into attack transports. I would prefer these modeled as attack transports with the military transport second choice, but the civil version would be OK.

• WWII US heavy cruiser Indianapolis (CA 35) (final configuration) – We are about half-way to being able to represent all the US pre-war heavy cruiser types in both early-war & late-war configuration. A late-war Pensacola (CA 24), Chester (CA 27), Augusta (CA 31), or New Orleans (CA 32) would also be welcome, but Indianapolis gets my vote because of her tragic sinking.

• WWII US heavy cruiser Oregon City (CA 122)-class: These were modifications of the Baltimore-class with reduced superstructure to provide better sky arcs for the anti-aircraft guns. Their single funnels gave them a distinctly different appearance from the Baltimores. They were completed too late to see combat in WWII. To go along with the Oregon City class, I’d like to see the corresponding modification of the Cleveland-class – the Fargo (CL 106)-class.

Consolidated Micronaut Wish List Summary

This posting separates the various eras, with the number of ships listed in each era based (approximately) on GHQ’s recent output of models. The sequence is:
• Post-Cold War: top 25
• Cold War: top 15
• WWII: top 25
• WWI: top 20
• Pre-Dreadnought and earlier steam: top 10
• Pre-steam: top 5
There may be more than the specified number of ships listed because of ties. The sequence within each era is based on number of “votes,” country, and name.

Because of the length of the total list (about 4220 different items), the posted summary includes only those items for which there are enough votes to meet the above criteria. This reduces the posted list to 118 items. For the current rate at which GHQ is producing new Micronauts, it would take more than eight years to produce just these models.

For those of you who do not see items for which you have voted, I continue to track all the votes. If an item gets additional votes to raise the total to the “top 100”, it will reappear on the posted summary. Feel free to inquire in the forum or by private message about any specific item(s) not appearing in the posted summary.
