HPM Hobbies: AIM-9B Sidewinder #incoming

The next in our 3D printed missile range will be the AIM-9B Sidewinder and TDU-11/A Mk26 Training Rocket. Both of these will be supplied with the AERO-3B rail.

The AIM-9B Sidewinder was the first generation of the famous air to air missile, and was widely exported.

Training pilots to use the system required a target rocket and the TDU-11/A round fitted with the Mk26 illuminating head was often used. We have evidence of use with the USAF F-100 Super Sabre and RAAF Dassault Mirage IIIO - anyone know of others?

These will be available as sets of two missiles initially in 1/72

.:Hasegawa:. F/A-18F Adv. Super Hornet

First flown in 2013, the F/A-18F Advanced Super Hornet prototype is packed with innovations that made it a success with the US Navy. Initial flight tests proved successful, thanks in part to "Enhanced Performance Engines" that boosted output from 22,000 pounds to 26,400 pounds per power plant. Conformal fuel tanks increased the aircraft's combat range by 260 nautical miles while adding 3,500 pounds (1,600 kg) of fuel per fill-up. This limited edition kit features new resin parts and one marking option..

【Resin Parts】
· Conformal tank · Enclosed weapon pod parts

· Demonstrator (2013)

Ace Combat 6: The Fires of Liberation pits pilots, once again, against an aggressive and superior force of invaders. Against such odds, the only defense is a fast plane and a faster trigger finger!

This limited edition kit features two special "UPEO" decals.
