I want all of them! If I had to choose just five for now, though, they would be:
  1. USS America
  2. Egg Crate
  3. Starlight (yes!)
  4. Nike-Tomahawk 1/10
  5. ThunderStorm or 1/4 Arcon
I was going to add the Sprite, but you've already taken care of that.

Oh, my shopping/wish list just keeps getting longer and longer...

This is hard - I know some of these and not others. So....

Starship Excalibur
USS America (can fly 18mm on D10-5s or D21-4s I'd think)
Starlight

After that, I'm not sure.....

The idea of a 1/4 scale model appeals to me - so the Arcon. And the Midget would be fun.....

What I like about it is that it can be done several ways. The stock Mini Brute EST-0840 would use stock mini (T) motors. The earlier, stock K-40 would use T motors with 18mm adaptors (or can be built with 13mm motor tubes).

BT-55 and BT-60 upscales work great with stock 18 and 24mm motors, respectively. These require somewhat non-scale changes to the length of the booster sections (as I recall) but it's not not noticeable, the changes are quite minor.

That said, the corps of Midget enthusiasts is quite small, so I question whether there's enough market to justify any of these.

I could definitely go for one as well. I'm not as bad (good?) as you, but I have already cloned three of them (different sizes).

Hurray! That's the only way to get those bevels outside of a machine shop. Definitely the way to go for the Nike fins, but would you do the same for the Tomahawk's? (They would be pretty small and quite thin, but I'd be game either way, built-up or solid.)

Gotta finish my 1/8 N-T now.

I vote for a 1/3 (not 1/10) scale Phoenix kit for under $50.00 with pre-machined to shape fins and a solid balsa or Fibreglass nose cone.

On THAT note, an XL sized Starlight (BT-60 based or larger) would be simply awesome!

Here's the last "standard size" Starlight I scratch-built from Semroc parts. The only variation I did from the original was I constructed the fins from basswood for stronger "pointyness(?)". This paint scheme is the later red/white version. I believe the very first color variant was a transparent blue over metallic silver. I've never actually seen one in that color, though.
