F-104G pylons 1/32

Recommended Posts

I can't find any pylons in 1/32 to arm my Italeri F-104G with AS34 Kormorans.

There's a nice kit placed on the market by CMK, but only with pylons to fit Tornados with the missiles.

Videoaviation pylons are very nice but they are not the specific pylons for the Kormorans.

I think you will have to build them from scratch. Fortunatelly, they are not the most difficult part to do. But references are hardly available.

I think both Harold and Maurizio have mentioned producing Kormorans, so maybe pylons too... 

 

I'd really like a German RF-104G set... some chaff/flare dispensers wouldn't go amiss either.

1. videoaviation told me that CMK has nice missiles and I had to scratch the pylons.

2. No answer from CMK yet.

3. Eduard-support, Petra Solcova answered:

"yes, they might be released sometime in the future, we are thinking about this in our longer term plans. 

But I don not have any closer time schedules for this, I am afraid. 
Have a nice day."

Chaff/flare dispensers would be very nice, because they were used on all Marine F-104G in their late days, not only on the RF-104.

Maybe the Recce-version will follow Italeris TF-104G - let's hope...

I assume it goes without saying that the ErpSt 61 (latterly WTD 61) F-104G above is carrying a test missile, and an operational jet wouldn't have the launch camera mounted on the pylon.

 

Having just acquired a Hasegawa F-104G (good shape and easier to re-scribe than dealing with the Italeri trenches) that came with a set of bulged doors and fat wheels my plan for a bare metal Luke based jet in USAF markings somehow morphed into an MFG2 Marine aircraft with Kormorans. The DACO and HaHen decals might have contributed to that. Looks like those pylons will need some looking into.

 

Edited to add photo of  regular operational type pylon (from wiki) and fairing on missile..
