Anyone know of a source for belts for modern jets?  I'm looking to dress up the gun in a 32nd F-4E and coming up empty in my search.

 

Thanks!

 

Jake

The CMK armament set for the Tamiya F-16CJ has one but it's only 16mm long.

Otherwise, the only other one I can think of is in 1/35scale for the Academy M163.

Didn't some one also do a 20mm ammo belt for the MH-60 Blackhawks? or was it 30MM one. In 1/35 it is close to 20MM in 1/32 :shrug:

hi Vandy, is this the set you were speaking of (verlinden 1:35 ammo belts .30 cal & .50 cal #60)?

Hope that helps

Hi Jake,

 

I'm not sure if this is helpful, but Eduard makes a PE set that you can use to dress up the Tamiya kit parts.  Rather than assemble the PE as instructed, I just glued the magazine bits onto the kit parts as shown here.

IIRC, MDC makes stills of German 30mm and maybe 20mm cannon shells on belts.

I just opened eBay and typed this in the search window:

ammo belts 1/32  1/35

Lots of goodies appeared, up to 75mm ammo. 

Yummy.

The F-4E M61A-1 rotary cannon used a linkless feed, but it would be a nightmare sanding and painting individual 1/32 20mm rounds to stuff into the Eduard feed chutes. Chuck's approach looks the more doable, simulating empty.

I don't know how the rotary cannon's drum was reloaded (presumably not using an automated feeder like the A-10's ALS) but it would make for an interesting diorama.

Thanks guys.  I tried searching and came up empty, but I didn't search eBay.

 

I appreciate it!

I realise I have spare MiG-21 23mm ammo which may be what you need, as per this sprue...

The real things IIRC were 23mm x 115mm long, so are very close.
