Now available! https://zactomodels.com/ First, a big thanks to Jim Rotramel for helping with references! Two versions are available, the early AIM-120A/B versions (shown in CATM configuration) and the newer clipped wing AIM-120C. Both versions include separate exhaust sections and nosecones to convert your missiles to CATM versions (Captive Air Training Missile). The main body as supplied has the live version of the nosecone molded-in and just the exhaust cone as a separate part. The CATM versions do require cutting and replacing the front and rear sections. The CATM type nosecone is occasionally seen on live missiles so check your references. Note the left wing AIM-120C in this pic has the CATM type nose while the right AIM-120A/B is the standard live nose: https://www.airfighters.com/photo/99576/M/USA-Air-Force/General-Dynamics-F-16C-Fighting-Falcon/89-2029/ and here's a second F-16 with 2 AIM-120Cs, one with live nose and one with CATM type: https://www.airfighters.com/photo/99131/M/USA-Air-Force/General-Dynamics-F-16C-Fighting-Falcon/88-0413/ I still don't know the explanation for that so if any of you know please chime in.
Hi there, I'm currently building Revell's 1/32 F-4E to Hellenic Air Force AUP standard and have a question regarding the AMRAAM's that are used on the front underside stations. On the kit, the stations are shorter in length than the rear stations and as such the AIM-120's supplied in the kit do not fit in there (the supplied AIM-7 Sparrows fit fine). Typically the Hellenic Air Force AUP Phantoms have AIM-120's on the two front underside stations (although they do also have them on the back two occasionally). See this <<LINK>> So my questions are: 1) Is the Revell kit wrong and the stations are longer than represented on their kit? or 2) Are the stations modified on the AUP to be able to take the longer AIM-120s? or 3) Are the Revell AIM-120's too long scale wise? or 4) Are different (shorter) AIM-120's used on these stations (i don't even know if shorter AIM-120's exist)? or 5) Something else? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
