Where to Find Modern Aeronautical Equipment?

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Didn't really know where to post this topic :/

I'm currently making an AH-64D Apache Longbow (Revell's kit) in 1:48 scale. I'm gonna be bored over the summer, so I was probably gonna have a crack at making an Middle Eastern diorama focused around the Apache. It will be just before a mission, so there will be people loading ordnance, maybe a quick bit of maintenance and nothing much else really. I was looking at Hussein El Kaissy's 1/32 one on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJjPWS18rTQ . It looks really nice.

So, my question is; Where can I get these diorama accessories in 1/48?

- A collection of modern weapons, such as a TOW Launcher (looks so cool :D) etc. Much like Italeri's collection, but in 1/48! http://www.italeri.com/scheda.asp?idProdotto=2530&idCategoria=5&idSottocategoria=55

- A maintenance kit, for example a tool case, military mechanic figure, tools and a laptop thing/walkie talkie.

- An rearmament set, with a winch, missile trolly etc.

- A belt feeding kit for rearming the chain gun.

- 90's/00's U.S.A.F figures, including a pilot and gunner.

Please note that these need to be in 1/48, and apologies for any dumb mistakes, e.g. naming or describing something wrong because I am more of a WWII modeler.

Thanks :))

I don't believe the Apache uses the TOW system. Hellfire is the usual missile armament.

Sorry if you misinterpreted it. I meant an Infantry TOW launcher, the one which stands on a tripod.

Except for some figures (Which will probably have to be converted) and some tools, you will have to scratch build everything else. Aircraft maintenance equipment is not a popular subject with all the kit manufacturers, IMHO. (Except for the OLD Hasegawa 1/72 stuff.)
