cromwell, comet & a30 challenger in 1/72

it's question time!
we have been asked a few times recently about some of our older models and whether we could re-release them.
one of them was the A30 challenger sp 17pdr, so the question is, should we remould it?
also been asked for a comet and years ago i did do a conversion on our late hulled cromwell to make it into a comet and this could be finished off quite easily.
so please let me know what you think shall we do one or both?
thanks
shaun

I am not an expert so cant help you but I was not around (I think, on Sotcw forum) when you did the original models so perhaps a reminder of their appearance in form of re hashed photo would help elicit better informed response?

good idea but it would get a revamp so would look a bit different than it does now

Did the Challenger have open hatches, in which case I think I've got one.

the original model had them yes, then it was closed up as casting the hatches was a pain in the aaaaa
