RF-18 pods question

Recommended Posts

I'm building the Testors 1/48 RF-18 kit and it comes with 2 pods marked as FLIR and "Lot". I think the Lot pod is really supposed to be an LDT pod designated AN/AAQ-28. The other pod I can't seem to figure out what it is supposed to be.

 

Does anyone know what the second pod is supposed to be and if there is an aftermarket version???

The one that goes on the left fuselage station should be the TFLIR (Targeting FLIR).  It will have a turret ball in the front end.

Yes  I'm already looking for an aftermarket pod to replace the kit junk. My question is what is the other pod supposed to be.

 

The AN/AAQ-28 will be on the left side (facing the aircraft or right side as viewed from the cockpit) but my question is what the other pod is supposed to be?????

Part 37a/b?

 

That was the AN/ASQ-173 Laser Spot Tracker, with the aft blocky portion containing a strike camera.

 

Hope it helps.
