Hi,

Is there an aftermarket Sniper pod and the associated pylon for B-1Bs and B-52s?

thanks

Unfortunately there are no 1/144 SNIPER pods available. I scratch built one and tried to copy it in resin but didn't have any luck.

I saw a 3-D print set on Shapeways. Quite expensive: 5-Sniper Pods (no pylons) and 5-AIM-9X Sidewinders for around $36.00 US dollars.

Do you have a link Joel or know who the designer was? Ten pieces (5x SNIPER, 5x AIM-9X) works out to being $3.60/piece, which isn't terrible for this hobby.

Thanks for the information. Now I have to figure what spare part I can use from the spares box for the pylon on the B-52.

I tried looking for the sniper pods (a couple of days ago) on Shapeways.. I must be blind, because I was also sure I had seen them there...

And you still have to scratchbuild the adapter that sits between the pod and the pylon.
