I think that may be a thread I started when I first actively joined the forum. I submitted inquiries/recommendations to Maisto, and all I got was a "we'll look into it".
At the time, I was actually talking about the project with a friend of mine who was a co-owner of a small toy/model manufacturer out of Texas. They specialized in 1:43 scale die-cast armor and larger scale (1:18) plastic aircraft. Unfortunately, the economic downtown put them effectively out of business (or at least into serious hibernation).
Maybe if enough of us contact Ertl or one of the other companies specializing in scale die-cast motorcycles, we can get their attention.
