1/18 F16 AAQ-13/14 Targeting_Navigation Pods PLUS!!

Post by pizzaguy » Tue Jan 29, 2019 7:48 pm

I got my hands on a AAQ-14 Targeting pod from the F14 Black Knights and made a mold. While looking for reference pictures I came across some F16 using the AAQ-14 and AAQ-13 pods. I guess my question is, Would there be any interest in a set of these for the F16? I was thinking in the ballpark of $35 for a set.

Absolutely !! I was just talking about these, and other items for the F-16, with someone on the 1/18th scale Facebook page yesterday. Would the head on the AN / AAQ-14 be moveable and rotate like the Black Knight version ??
Just a FYI Nathan, the top pic is of a Greek F-16 I believe. We don't have a pod like that one, on the port side, in our inventory.
We could also use a AN / ASQ-213HTS (HARM Targeting System) pod and pylon but then you'll need AGM-88's to go with it.
A AN / ALQ-131 ECM pod (short version) and, a AN / ALQ-184 pod (long version).
A AN / AAQ-33 SNIPER-XR pod and pylon would also be a welcome edition.
LAU-129 wingtip launcher rails so we can move the AIM-120's to the wingtips, like most F-16's carry them today but, then we need better AIM-120's as well.

Does somebody knows if the Lantirn (AAQ-13?) has also been mounted on the F/A-18? Thank you for the answer, Chris

That's a small laundry list. LOL Let's see how these do and go from there.

I don't believe so Chris. The Hornet uses the following pods:
AN/ASQ-228 ATFLIR
AN/AAS-38 "NiteHawk"
AN/AAQ-28, this is carried on the centerline station with a pylon.

HA HA, well I figured if your going to be making items, it's all or nothing. :lol:
Sounds good, looking forward to the pods Nathan.
Don't forget to get in touch with my bud, Ed Miranda about the A-4.

Steve,
"Would the head on the AN / AAQ-14 be moveable and rotate like the Black Knight version ??"
Yes, It's the same pod as the JSI Black Knights.

How's the AIM-120 looking? Do you have any good pictures of the LAU-129 wingtip launcher rails?:

Great work on the parts Nathan, thanks again. These will look really good on my F-16. I'll need to fabricate the "stubby" pylon for stations 2 and 8 so I can move my resin AIM-9's under the wings.

Another "upgrade" for my F-16, a AN/AAQ-33 Sniper XR pod, pylon and, hardback. Along with Nathan's AIM-120B's and LAU-129 rails my jet will look a lot better. Very well done Nathan, thanks again.
