Extinct/Unobtainable Multiplex kits- which one do you want the most?

When Multiplex pulls the plug on one of their beloved kits, it's a sad day for all of us.

Which of their extinct kits do you most wish you could get your grubby mits on?

Do you harbor any hope of a re-release?

Yep... a good flying plane for sure. I remember this being suggested as a great first aileron plane but the ones I have seen are actually pretty capable performers.

For me... I would love to find a Twinjet, a Cargo... or most of all, a Sonic Liner.

I aquired a boxed unbuilt sonic liner but I sold it on I think it was some guy in france who bought it. Now that was a nice looking plane ... wish I kept it.

That's the stuff, est1976...that is a hot looking foamy!! I hope you got some good cash for it.

There seems to be some demand building for this airframe...I wonder what the odds are of a reissue?

I would love to see a reissued/brushless MPX SL.
