« on: April 01, 2014, 10:29:52 AM »
I have been looking around but can not find anything for helicopter weapons , plenty of stuff for planes but no choppers, anyone got some leads? looking for the big rocket pods normally seen on the two inboard pylons of mi-24s.

The best B-8 pods in 1/144 are probably found in Revell's little Ka-50. They only provide two pods, though.

Brass tubing? You're gonna need a LOT of patience for that!  :o Drilling 20 holes in such proximity!

Not the same pods, but they're used on Mi-24s as well.  :) The pods in the Su-25 kit look like they're supposed to resemble UB-32-57 pods for thirty-two 57mm S-5 rockets. The pods on the Mi-24 boxart are B-8B20A pods for twenty 80mm S-8 rockets.
