and let me say those Qirky decals RULEZ. One of the best aftermarket weaponry I've ever seen...

My only regret it's not have any F-105s in my stash to buy TWO/THREE pieces.

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

Putting one of these together this weekend for a "mini get my model mojo back" build; was curious regarding the sensor(?) rectangles that circle the front of the AGM. The decals included have these as both silver and black; are some just metal plates? Previously I thought these were all the same and would be the same color (assumed black.)

 

Anyone have good close ups}? I have lots of pics of the AGM but all are from far enough back that these look pretty much like black or maybe grey rectangles depending on the lighting and not much else can be seen as far as detail....

 

Great resin set by-the-way; just sprayed some primer on the assembled AGM minutes ago and looking good so far....

Go by the drawings I did - not the painted inert missile on the box lid as seen at Dayton - as I can assure you those are reliable.

It used the same proximity sensor as Shrike. But early STD ARMs used only one or two each side (of six) and later models (barring one post war submark) merely had four dummy fuzes which were a metallic grey colour - these relied on the active optical fuze under the nose.
Trust me.

Tony

In the photo above you can see the top proximity fuze is a dummy metallic grey plate. BTW, It's not a C-2, which had two dummy grey metal plates each side and the DSU-10 optical fuze under the nose.

What is it then? The rest of the missile markings match to that identified as C-2 in the instructions posted so I assumed it was a C-2. I missed seeing the C-2 drawing only shows 4 panels with the bottom being different.

Hi Steve,

Most likely an A2 or B1, but fitted with three or four (out of six) Shrike proximity fuze panels. These early missiles normally looked like this, with a middle Shrike proximity fuze and upper and lower dummy metallic grey fuze panels each side:

image_115.jpeg
Sorry the photo is not mine and cropped and reproduced here for educational purposes, with apologies to the original photographer.

Or like this (rarely) each side with an upper metallic grey dummy fuze, middle live Shrike proximity fuze and the lower dummy fuze overpainted in white (probably an overhauled early missile):

image_116.jpeg
Sorry the photo is not mine and cropped and reproduced here for educational purposes, with apologies to the original photographer.

********** ********* *********

The later models with four metallic grey dummy fuzes and the DSU-10 active optical fuze underneath looked like this:

Sorry the photo is not mine and cropped and reproduced here for educational purposes, with apologies to the original photographer. I discarded all my original files once the drawings had been completed.

Hiya Tony - another question - was the longitudinal line on the top of most AGM or just occasionally used? Not seeing that in pics but again hardly any show the top of the AGM so ?

 

Thx!
