What are some ideas or part you want that could make your build better in 1/48 scale? Within reason.


Just looking for ideas,
Steven  :smiley:

Well, I, for one, would like to see some AGM-137A TSSAM missiles as stores.  I can advise on how to tweak the available drawing to show the "carry" configuration as opposed to the "flying" configuration of the 3-view.  I also can advise on what and where to modify for an extended range version that was studied for a proposal to the RAF.

A second item I'd love to see was the Northrop-Ventura ND-1 proposal for an integral rocket-ramjet powered submunitions dispenser that could be conformally carried on even a F-3E/F-20 class aircraft.

One item that would, IMHO, be interesting would be an AIM-54X Phoenix-ER missile in which the solid rocket motor is replaced by an integral rocket-ramjet motor with four intakes at the leading edges of the fins, somewhat in the Russian style used on the Kh-31. Alternatively, a different Phoenix ER with a booster stage added.  Or, combine the two for a Phoenix-XLR with both the booster stage and the integral rocket-ramjet motor.

For people who want a different-looking AAM, an AIM-162 air-launched version of the main stage of the RIM-162 ESSM.

Going back a ways, how about a 1/48 AAM-N-10 Eagle

Final thought would be operational variants of the Vought ALVRJ test vehicle, either for ASM or AAM purposes.

The hsiung feng III from Taiwan looks very similar.

One I would love to see would be a conversion to do a Westland Wyvern TF.1 with the original RR Eagle engine:




Also, just a simple Mistel Conversion nose & support struts (thus saving the purchase of entire kits):



One can get these in 1/72 and 1/32 but I don't believe there is anything in 1/48 that doesn't require the purchase of a full kit with the aircraft.

Definitely a resemblance.  Be interesting to see an air-launched variant of the Hsiung Feng III carried under a F-CK-1C or -1D; more likely a pair, one under each wing.

A couple more suggestions in 1/48:

Conversion to do a 1/48 Panavia Tornado 2000:




Conversion to do a 1/48 MiG-21-93 or MiG-21 "Bison":





Conversion to do a 1/48 Mirage F1-M53/F1E - in other words, the slightly stretched SNECMA M53 powered version that was offered to the Europeans in the '70s in competition to the F-16:




F-16-79 with GE J-79 engine:

1:48th scale AGM-69 SRAM and AGM-131 SRAM-II would be nice to see.  While the Revell B-One does include blobs of plastic with an AGM-69 SRAM shape they are far from ideal thanks to the trench-sized seams and very chunky control fins.  Both subjects would be a nice addition for what-if and all of those poor souls that own the Revell B-One kit.

I'm curious, what items would you guys like to see me offer in 1/48 scale? If there are multiple require for the same item, I will see what I can. But if it is a bunch of one off items, forget it.  Please no 1/72 scale.


Steven




This one might be pretty easy and get some decent attention  :smiley:




F-111B?

TC, is that a conformal tank plus AIM-54 launcher ?

Speaking of conformal fuel tanks, what about a set to allow one to model the Typhoon with these:





And/or perhaps the F-4 proposed one:
