Came across this on Armorama:



Just the thing to give your lighter vehicles or foot-mobile troops a little more punch.


YES! ;D


Now I can finish-finish this;



by chucking a Javelin next to the commander. :smiley:




But I'll probably buy at least 4 or 5 sets for fun! ;)

Received the CV-22B set and a bonus gift of the V-22 Osprey Engine Set this week.  I can do a rough "in the box" review this weekend if anyone is interested?

Here's the engine set:

Here's the engine set:

At first glance it looks good, but I believe there are folding struts that hold the platform doors open.  I will say that, other than that, it does look right.

That big hole on the top of the nacelle is for the oil cooler scoop and, detailing that would take rather more effort.

B-2 bomb bays look good.  I see some definite errors in the wheel wells, though.  Then again, I got to know those, and adjacent zones, quite intimately while working on the B-2.  There are some very obvious things missing from the wheel wells as well as some structure I can see they have wrong.

I keep thinking of a B-47 with two Hound Dog's on pylons in place of the under-wing tanks.  Might not have as much range, but it could get them out to a launch point that could complicate life for any opposition.

I not that they now have opened-up and detailed V-22 nacelles in 1/72; though the built-up one they depict has the bottom doors erroneously hinged on the top instead of the bottom as they really are.  In any case, both the 1/72 and 1/38 sets for this definitely require you to make hold-open struts for the doors, all of them; suitable diameter wire should suffice in all cases.

Black Dog also has folded V-22 prop/rotors in 1/48 and 1/72.



I've thought about adding them to the stash, but I don't think I will ever build one of my Ospreys all folded up...

A challenge would be to fit them to a kit, in either 1/48 or 1/72 and then model an aircraft with the wing rotated to the fully-stowed position.

Like Robert I too have the "Doggies" that come with the AMT B-52G.

The Quail is "begging" to upgraded with larger wings and other enhancements.

New drones and related:







The Beechcraft AQM-37 Jayhawk in particular could make an interesting weapon.  The real thing had a top speed of around Mach 4 and a range of 180km (113 miles) and all this in the 1960s.  Maybe as an early ARM even?
