There's definitely a market to be had if a company was willing to make available a line up of bodies that screw directly in to the Tamiya kits. 3D printed bodies are cool but still require preparation work before painting and don't always fit properly.

From what i've seen on youtube, there seem to be a lot of guys in asia (singapore) and south america (brasil) doing bus builds. They seemed to mostly be touring or luxury busses. I don't know if it's a company making parts, or 'some dude'.

A day cab, ANY day cab, with doors that open, mirrors (like Bruder models) that fold, a hood that OPENS, & a mock engine to hide the UGLY can motor that shows through the grill.

A "glider kit" Frame, suspension and axles only.
Then we can go from there since their U.S. cabs are so limited.

I'd like to see Tamiya produce a 46" dry-van trailer with the proper markings for a 53' unit. It would be great if it had the options of tandem or spread axles as you built it.

I'd like to see them kick out a 1/14 M35A1 . Factory equipped with AWD, options for various cargo beds(And fifth wheels)...would be effin' sweet.

I'd also like some US spec trailers. The Cascadia is a lovely model of the most frequently seen bigrig on American highways but it just doesn't have anything proper to pull. Doesn't look right towing that forty footer, definitely doesn't look right towing a Euro style trailer. But if you want a 53' US-spec trailer for the Cascadia, Globe Liner, Grand Hauler, King Hauler to drag around, currently, it's a scratch project.

I would like to see someone make square turn signals to match the headlights on the King and Grand haulers. Also, the matching air horns would be nice to make replicas more accurate.
