Does anyone know where I might find a pair of these pods? The more modern Matra 155 is everywhere, but I need the old clunkers for a Spanish F-4C

Sometimes the pods had covers on them. Scroll to the bottom:

Interesting discussion, but it's about the more modern pods, not the old 116.

Can you suggest any kits that may have them?

Sadly, no. Just identifying a potential donor kit would be a major step forward from my point of view :???:

I think this type of rocket pod is more commonly known as SNEB type.

This link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SNEB lists aircraft types that use it so should give you some idea of where to look.
I will search my stash later to see if I have any.

I've often seen them referred to by that name, although that more properly refers to the rockets themselves, not the pods.

Your assistance is most welcome.
I have quite a few kits of aircraft on that list, but those in my stash invariably contain the pointed nosed pods (type 155 or JL-100) instead of the round nosed type 116M pods. I hope your stash is more helpful than mine...

Most interesting.
I can't say I have ever seen a pod like this in any kit. The very tip is a launch tube.
All the older kit pods I have seen have a pointy tip, with launch tubes all around.

Sorry,

David

I've given up on finding these by any polite means. Then again, politeness is optional :twisted:
I'm now eagerly awaiting an order from Shapeways, to see what they've made of my first attempt at 3D modelling. Theoretically, the answer should be "a bunch of Matra 116 pods in 1/72 scale", but reality might be different :???:

A lot of Matchbox, Revell and some Airfix kits have these. Not sure if they are exactly the same type but they do look very similar to me.

The older Airfix Mirage III has the ones with the fuel tanks attached. The Matchbox F-4 Phantom comes with a few but again probably the wrong types, I am not that picky.

Nope, always the later, pointed nose types. I have a pile of those in the spares box, but they're not what I need.

Probably still wrong but the ones marked "LRF" are the closest I have seen http://web.ipmsusa3.org/content/mirage-iii5-weapons-set

Thanks for digging. You're right, those are probably the only round nosed rocket pods available, and the closest I could find, but as you say, still wrong (smaller number of tubes in the pod).

I'm calling this sorted :-D

Some minor imperfections, but no more than on many commercial products, and nothing really hard to fix.

The sixpack of loaded pods will end up on a Spanish Phantom, the empty ones may well end up on a RoKAF F-5, since that's what my primary reference picture was of.
