Just saw on HobbyLink Japan's website for pre-order are two new 1/144 scale U.S. weapon sets coming from Platz.
Not sure if I could pass a weapons recce test but this is my best shot on identification. Some interesting weapon choices: AIM-26 Nuclear Falcon, AIR-2 Genie (looks like a Genie to me), B-61 tactical nuke?, air delivered mines, are included on the Vol 1 set. Vol 2 has what looks like snake-eye versions of the MK81 and MK83. Looks like both volumes are geared towards aircraft of the late-1950's thru the 1990's. Anyway, there are pictures (not sprue shots) on HobbyLink Japan and 1999jp websites of the other weapons not mentioned above. Sorry I don't know how to transfer the pictures to this post. Analog guy in a digital world.
P.S. Anyone know what the name of the missile shown on Vol 1 just to the right of the MK82 bombs with fuse extenders? What type of weapons are included with B-61 and the Genie looking missiles on Vol 1?
