1/5th scale drop tanks, pylons, tip missiles etc

Sorry, it is 1/6th scale, I was wrong

A long shot I'm sure but it sure would be nice to find a couple of 1/6th scale unpainted/painted drop tanks, 155 Hawk Matra rockets or magic 550 missiles or the like to dress up a semi scale project. Not looking to spend a lot here, would even consider slightly damaged!

Nothing ventured, nothing gained :-)

Try Kieth over at parkflyer plastics. I have both the drop tanks and aim 9 missiles and they are sweet.

Never thought of plastic for this! Are you guys flying with them or just static?

Perhaps using them as a mold would work for me........ hmmmm

Interesting site, thanks!

Salty they will work just fine for flying. Use a combination of plastic model cement in the tube and the water thin variety with capillary action. They are plenty strong and light too. My 6th scale F-15 has four aim 9s and two 22" drop tanks. Total weight for all is 15oz.
