Where to buy Scale Scale Guns/missles?

Hey guys...i'm going to embark on a scale project or 2 for my heli's here soon..and have been looking around and not having much luck finding scale machine guns or rocket pods for my projects. Anybody have a source for this kind of stuff? Or do i have to build my own? (and i'm not good enough to do that!) just hoping ot find some stuff ot buy i may have ot paint and build a mount for to put on them..building a couple of 450 scale military heli's and want to add some menace to them! Any help would be appreciated!

Dan

I was watching and waiting for the reply here Jetta. Due to hours of searching the internet seems we are both out of luck.

My 450 is around 1/10 scale I assume, which makes finding things rather hard.

Anyway good luck, if you find something let us know.

thought about simple rocket pods....tube of some sort painted...wood "plug" at the end with holes drilled in it then painted..then something to stick out through the holes to look like missle noses...but i know my scratchbuilding skills are lacking...

Best chance might be from kids toys... tons of them out there with rocket launchers, missiles and guns.

Try badcattoys.com. They have more action figures than weapons though.

I might have to give the 450 apache weapons set a try since the scale flying 450 size apache is about the same size as my apache 450.
