Can I make a suggestion?  How about a Blue Streak MRBM in 1/72 and 1/144 scale?  It is something that is sadly lacking amongst the Rocket community of modellers.

I keep thinking of an A-10 in US Forrest Service markings rolling in on a wildfire with TER's full of those fire-fighting bombs.  It would make an interesting whif.

Suggest away, by all means!

I've actually had my eye on the Blue Streak (and derivatives) for awhile, now, but I've just had the worst luck trying to find any decent diagrams or blueprints to work off of so I could make a satisfactory job of it.

I picked up a beautiful 3D printed Blue Streak from a seller on EBay, pretty good value too (the seller also does Thor and Bloodhound 2 in a variety of scales)

How about a Japanese ASM-3 anti-ship missile in both 1/72 and 1/48?  It's not operational yet, but that makes it perfect for whiffing loadouts.

IMDb: Idiocracy (25 January 2007 (Germany))

Private Joe Bauers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes five centuries in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive.

Hamza - You may want to offer them in 1/285 (if the wings/walls are thick enough when scaled) since this is a common scale for wargaming

Thanks for the tip! The Me 328 V1 is more likely to be scalable at 1:285 with some tweaks.

I had not seen or heard from Nick (Rancoth) here on the forum or at Shapeways for quite some time.  Turns out there was a reason for his long absence:
Quote from: Ranchoth on Saturday, January 27, 2018 16:36
Yeah, sorry to disappear like this—I actually just started a new job. At a UAV company, as a matter of fact. It's neat work, though I've been working 50 hour weeks for most of the last month, which has been cutting into my 3D modelling time, to say the least.

On the plus side, aside from getting more used to the schedule, it's been letting me build up my grubstake enough to get some models printed for myself, acquire some new research material, and even pick up a couple of model kits to display some appropriate wares on. One of them, a Trumpeter Q-5 Fantan, I'm even hoping to design a mod kit for, to better carry Chinese (and perhaps later on even Pakistani, North Korean, or completely fictional) nukes.

Plus, saving up for that trip to the museums at Albuquerque and White Sands. I might even be able to afford to buy a portable 3D scanner to take along. :cool: Exciting times ahead!

Another maker at Shapeways that might interest many of you is Pieter Kasselman.  He has a variety of 1:72nd, 1:48th, and 1:32nd scale weapons available.  Pieter has other printed model subjects available which you can check out on his main page Model Ordnance By Pieter Kasselman

@Greg,

Yes indeed!  The Golf Bomb is definitely a nice addition.  I was anticipating having to build those from scratch but Pieter has delivered me from my toils.  Yay!

Just found this at Shapeways: 1/35th scale ATACMS missile currently available in WSF material with other scales and materials pending as the maker converts the model in to 1:48th and 1:72nd scale.  :)

Ok, it seems that the above kit (specifically the tail fins) is actually unable to be printed by Shapeways.  the designer is now having to redesign it.
