Haven't seen any aftermarket AMA pods. They look like they should be relatively simple to scratch build. Basically a tube with a rounded front end and 4 tail fins on the other end.

I've made an AMA pod, using an AIM-9, out of the Hasegawa F-16 kit.

That's what I do too. Since the Hasegawa ones are weak on the fin details thet look the part and it's not a waste of more detailed ones.

I use an AIM-9B cute the front fins off and sand it smooth  then sand the back fin detail off so it looks the part.  I have some at home I can take a pic of but won’t be till later today.
