HA-1112 Buchon and AT-6D 80mm Oerlikon 86 rockets and launchers ?


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone I’m building a Spanish Air Force AT-6D in the TEXAN single type build. The type flown over the Sahara and I would like to add the rocket launchers/rockets something like this.

Does anyone make them aftermarket in 1/72 ? Ive found them in 1/48 & 1/32 but nothing in 1/72. I know that Special hobby’s 1/72 Buchon comes with them. Im pretty sure I can scratch-build them the rockets are dirt simple.

I would need a close up of the rocket tree as they're staggered vertically. They come two to a mount and four rockets/two tree’s to a wing. Any help would be appreciated.

These look an awful lot like the Sakr rockets / rails in the Airfix MiG-17 kit - these were based on the oerlikons in real life, I recall.

In which case, I've got three sets going begging.

And in which case I have four sets! ;)

Thanks guys looks like I could use a MiG now. Unfortunately SWMBO is a wee bit upset as I blew my modeling budget and accidentally used some of her gardening money. So will need to wait until June or July. Oh well looks like scratch building is the route for me.

Who sales the Croko conversion shown above in USA? Been looking for this set for a while. Just trying to prevent using the rockets from the SH Buchon kit.

I don't think anyone does, I think its only European sales.

The company has an Ebay store. It is located in Lithuania. I have it and an just waiting for Wolfpacks release of the T-6 this year. Supposedly in May. The resin is very crisp and delivery was very fast.

I don't know if you speak spanish but here is a nice article about building a Spanish T-6 as flown in the Sahara conflict. The fuel barrel in the back seat which he mentioned was a local mod but it was painted in the same grey as the seat.
