What about something such as the AN/TWQ-1 Boeing Avenger - one might be able to split a pod in two?

Revell Germany produced a Weasel variant (Ocelot) armed with the FIM-92 Stinger in tandem mounts that might also work.

Another good choice.

Thanks guys for some great suggestions. I appreciate them all.

I might keep the Type 87 AW turret as is. I like the sleek look of it and adding more stuff to it will make it look a bit too bulky. The twin Stingers look cool but only if I can find a set real cheap like what's on the Italeri Stinger Hummer. For now, I will probably only change the original single barrel 35mm Oerlikon's to the 20mm M61 Vulcans. The M61 Vulcans will give it that mean look, I hope!

Fair enough.  Can't wait to see the final product.

Cool project!  :smiley:

The comparison shot with the M61A5 is pretty interesting, too. Sure hope Bandai will repop it eventually.
Cheers,

This is put on hold for now. I am working on a few other projects instead. Hope to get back to this one soon though.

These are the other projects.

Thanks!

The Bandai 1/35 M61A5 can still be found but at ridiculous prices. I was lucky to get mine on sale a couple years ago for a fraction of the price they are asking now.

The G6 Type 87 AW what if is put on hold for now. I am working on a few other projects instead. Hope to get back to this one soon though.
