Most of these photos were taken at Classic Fighters 2013 airshow. I plan to convert the old 1/48 scale matchbox SH-2F kit into the 2G version which will involve quite a bit of modification. The full album is over at Photobucket here:
To be more precise, if you are doing an (NZ), then the missile that was in use was the Maverick, here is an image of the TGM-65 training round. It was carried in flight regularly, difference between this and a live missile is the blue markings and the lack of rear steering fins.
Visible in that image is the Mk11 Mod 3 Depth Charge Les referred to, although the blue ones were not cleared for flight. The live ones were dark green with yellow bands. Last live drop was mid 2011. You wont see them carried now.
The (I) model no longer uses Maverick, we now have AGM-119 Penguin. Here is the Dummy Air Training Missile (DATM) version.
While this is the aircraft when it was still in Aussie markings, it is the same missile (literally, we bought them off the Aussies). This is only just coming into service, current thinking is that it is unlikely to fly with the DATM. Live missile is grey with normal colour markings (Yellow band on warhead section denoting HE, brown band on rocket motor section). This is a terrible photo by the way, the missille is not carried with the wings unfolded like this.
This photo is better, but these aren't our missiles, but it shows how they are actually carried:
Thanks guys for the info I am doing a (G) hopefully have it done before ANZAC Day. Most of the models I make end up being donated to them so that the place has something for the kids to look at when they come in.
I didn't know there were aftermarket G parts available in 1/48. What are you doing for the engines?
The weapon pylons and flot fairings wouldn't be too hard, you'd also need smoke marker dispensers for the rear fuselage, again not too difficult, but the engine nacelles are a tricky shape, is there a resin conversion for those? The kitty hawk kit already comes with the G shaped aliens head (forward transmission cover) which makes it hard to make an accurate F, but works in your favour for making a G at least.
