F-100F instead of Canada's Electric Voodoo?

The IDF ones look just SO right, excellent stuff.

I agree, the IDF ones hit the sweet spot with the airframe ........

I recently acquired a pair of Trumpeter 1:48th scale F-100 kits (One F-100D and one F-100F) and the kit includes a pod for the under fuselage stores pylon that I do not recognize.  The pod in question has a tiny propeller at the nose and looks a bit "swooshy" with a blunt/flat end.  The kit instructions identify this as some kind of fuel tank but I do not believe that to be the case.  The pod looks more like it has an ECM purpose most likely, or perhaps it is an early buddy refueling store but I am leaning towards the pod being some kind of early ECM pod. 

Anyone have any information on this thing?  I do not recall seeing anything like it strapped to an F-100 in any of my references and on-line searches.

Can you post a picture of the bits?

Would they look like this refuelling pod being fitted under the wing:

Just received my package from KitLinx which contained my Trumpeter F-100F kit and the kit instructions identify that swoopie looking store as an ALQ-31 ECM Pod.  So question is answered.  Definitely not a buddy refueling store.  :)

Pod/Tank in question is located lower right just above the drop tank part.  Above the pod/tank halves are the practice bomb dispenser SUU-21 halves.

I was looking at the Israeli images the other day & imagining the F-100 in Czech markings (say if the 1948 coup failed).

Hmmm...colour me dubious.  Of course, what's to stop you making it a refuelling pod?

I suppose you could turn it in to a refueling store but there is not a lot of volume within the store for the hose drum when compared to the Douglas Aero shape D-704 refueling store. 

Maybe in [shudder] 1:72nd scale it could pass muster for a refueling store but not in 1:48th scale.  :smiley:
